Who We Are

We sold our home in June, 2007, and spent the next 7 1/2 years traveling full time in a Cross Roads Fifth Wheel. (We had been traveling during our summers for several years before going full time.) We loved the full-time lifestyle! Each summer we spent a month or two volunteering in State Parks, first in Indiana at McCormick's Creek State Park, near our family, then in later years as the grandchildren got older, at the Bluewater Lake State Park in New Mexico. We spent 6 months each winter at Cactus Gardens RV Resort in Yuma, AZ, where I worked mornings in the park office. The remaining months were spent on the road, seeing this great country of ours. Our favorite places are our National Parks. Anita loved photography and the freedom of digital photography, taking sometimes hundreds of photos in a day. We hiked as much as our legs will allow. We also really enjoyed square and round dancing as we travel across country, and meeting all the wonderful people who dance and/or travel.

But as in all things, there comes a time for change, and we decided it was time to create roots once more. In the fall of 2014, we purchased a home in Cactus Gardens, and in the spring of 2015, sold the 5th wheel. Anita also retired in the spring. We will continue to travel each summer, but for a shorter period of time. We hope to continue blogging about those trips, but it will obviously be on a more limited basis than in the past.

Please explore our past posts if you are interested in traveling this great country. You'll find an index in the left column. We hope you enjoy our blog, and appreciate all comments

From Wichita Mountains to Albuerquque

Shortly after leaving Wichita Mountains, we had a short stop to remove an awning from Hoyt and Bernice’s motorhome.  It had shredded at the top and was unwinding.

The cotton fields along the road were just coming into bloom.  There wasn’t much in the way of scenery along this stretch.

We passed a train transporting the blades for windmill.  Those things are huge!

This area of Oklahoma is flat…sometimes you can see for miles.


We spent the night in Fort Supply, where it rained the entire time we were there.

As we crossed through a corner of Texas, we often saw grain bins and lots of feed lots.

As we neared Albuquerque, the topography began to get more interesting.
