Whitewater Draw

December 14 – 16, 2020. We first visited Whitewater Draw four years ago on the same trip when we were tooling through Southern Arizona visiting places like Bisbee and Tombstone. It was a quick overnight stop and we probably would have missed it completely if friends hadn’t recommended it to us. We found Sandhill Cranes …read more

A Short Tour of Southern AZ

December 11 – December 17, 2020. Way back in December our friends from Roaming About, Mark, Liesbet, and Maya the dog invited us to go on a little tour of Southern Arizona with them.

Plunge in the Ironwood Forest

November 25 – December 1, 2020. Towards the end of November three couples and the lovely canine, Maya, converged in Tucson. All ex sailors (except for Maya). All now wandering around on the hard.

January 2021 Cost of Being a Nomad

We finally made it back to the dentist in January. Last February we rushed from Texas to our dentist, Dr. Bernal, in Los Algodones, Mexico because Greg had lost a crown (and a bit of tooth with it).

Sweetwater Wetlands

November 3 – December 20, 2020. The other day as we were walking along the road we stopped and chatted with another camper. Seeing Greg’s binoculars and my camera he asked if we were birders. “Yes,” we replied. “Oh! What have you seen?” he asked. We rattled off a handful of birds we had spotted …read more

Condors at Navajo Bridge

October 25. I heard that there were birds at Navajo Bridge. Not just any birds, California Condors, one of the world’s largest and rarest birds. Now I never really expect to see advertised wildlife. I mean there were supposed to be moose in Montana and Wyoming yet we spent almost the whole summer there and …read more

December 2020 Cost of Being a Nomad

The month before we had hooked up with these friends, 2 other traveling couples, for a Thanksgiving/Birthday/book launch celebration in the desert outside of Tucson, AZ. After the festivities, we all eventually went our separate ways but made plans to reunite for Christmas and …read more

The Grand Valley

October 15 – 23, 2020. We headed south after our visit to Dinosaur National Monument. The cold was catching up with us once again and we had a list of things to do. Grocery shopping, laundry, blog posts to write, and more fossils to hunt down. I knew from social media that there were some …read more

November 2020 Cost of Being a Nomad

We spent all of the month of November in the Tucson, AZ area and the majority of that time was spent house sitting – living in a real house with real running water, real heat, a real oven, real rooms, and all the other real conveniences of living in a structure that stays in one …read more
