Fuhgoddaboudit Friday – Chaco Canyon

This post is a Fuhgoddaboudit Friday — which means the events in this post happened so long ago we almost forgot about it. But luckily we haven’t completely fuhgoddaboudit and have been able to reach back deep into the recesses of our minds and pluck out a few memories to share with you. Today’s post …read more

Widdershins Wednesday – North Thru New Mexico

This post is a Widdershins Wednesday — which means we are turning the hands of time backwards and catching up on our travels we didn’t get a chance to write about last year. In this post we are turning back the clock to right after we left Chiricahua National Monument… February 16 – February 20, …read more

Crossing to Baja California

March 5 – March 8, 2018. “Moose!”, Duwan exclaims as we pull into El Mirador campground. Leave it to Duwan to recognize a dog she knows out here in Baja California. She hops out to greet Moose as I find a level parking spot. Duwan has been following Moose’s person, Tim, on Instagram. After I …read more

Visiting the Dentist in Los Algodones

February 5 – February 13, 2018. “Open.” Oh, English. That was for me. I open my mouth wider. It’s really my only job here. Hard to believe I was dozing off in a dentist’s chair, with people working in my mouth, but it has been six steady hours. And the soft guitar music and constant …read more

Wandering to Tucson

January 28 – February 4, 2018. Journey to Tucson, Third and Final Leg. We were tired from traveling, it was cold, and getting colder as the sun set, but we waited patiently, sitting outside, our gazed fixed on the southwest until darkness took over and we saw the first flicker of the first Marfa Light. …read more

Big Bend

January 24 – January 28. Journey to Tucson, Second Leg. On our drive from New Orleans to Tucson we chatted with our friend Deanna to see if she was ready to “receive” us. We were welcome, of course, but she was juggling some priorities, and it would be better if we waited a few days …read more

Leaving Indiantown

January 3 – January 23, 2018. Journey to Tucson, First Leg. When we left Indiantown Marina on January 18 we had one small plan, get Greg to the dentist. For sometime now Greg has been spitting out deattached crowns and parts of his teeth. Since dental care is so crazy expensive, he has been regulating …read more

A few surprises in the Chiricahua Mountains

February 13 – 15, 2017. We had already been up a long stretch of muddy road when we saw the yellow ‘Bump Ahead’ sign. It looked just like one you see on an interstate, except that the words ‘next 23 miles’ had been added at the bottom. We pushed on, finding a boondocking site in …read more

Boondocking near Tombstone

February 9 – 12, 2017. We had Tombstone in our sights. Gunslingers, lawmen, and gamblers, the swinging doors of gritty saloons, marked cards, the smell of stale whisky, colorful dance hall girls, covered wagons on dusty streets, the Earps, Doc Holiday, the O.K. Corral, and visions of Val Kilmer saying “I’m your huckleberry.” Awesome – …read more

The Coronado Forest & Tumacácori

February 5 – February 8, 2017. For me going down is far scarier than going up. This is especially true when hiking up a steep rock face, but also when I am securely strapped into a tall rolling metal box, even though I am sure the peril is equal going either way on wheels. This …read more
