  • Namibia by Rail

    Namibia by Rail

    This 13-day journey to Namibia in late June and July checks off a few of our bucket-list items. Read on for our story and watch the video created by Pangolin Photo Safaris: Pangolin Express Video Link (18 minutes). We were on the move most of the time so this story quickly became long-winded but it’s […]

  • Father’s Day at the Twombly’s

    Father’s Day at the Twombly’s

    My sister Cindy’s family hosted a Father’s Day potluck party this year. They are really good at organizing our big family, having hosted for most of the family gatherings during the years that they cared for Dad’s parents, Elmer and Lela. I have three siblings; My brother Dan is 3 years older, sister Debbie is […]

  • Family in Utah & Oregon

    Family in Utah & Oregon

    Provo, Utah It was killing me to drive by the turn-offs to so many beautiful National Parks on the way through Southern Utah. Bryce Canyon, Zion, Capitol Reef, Grand Staircase Escalante, etc. are destinations that we have (mostly) been to and loved. There is no time for those detours today. Seems like only moments ago, […]

  • Boondocking, Vermilion Cliffs and North Rim Grand Canyon National Park

    Boondocking, Vermilion Cliffs and North Rim Grand Canyon National Park

    When you think of The Grand Canyon, you probably think of the super-busy South Rim Visitor’s Center with wide Canyon overlooks and plenty of services available. This would be our first visit to the North Rim Grand Canyon that typically only 10 percent of the visitors venture out to see. Each Visitor’s Center is directly […]

  • Re-homed Giraffes and Mother’s Day at Desert Botanical Gardens

    Re-homed Giraffes and Mother’s Day at Desert Botanical Gardens

    Our cute wood and leather giraffe statues that we received from cousins in Florida have added a personal touch to our RV home decor for the last couple of months. At over 3 ft tall, they are too big and must be stowed on the bed during travel days so we decided to re-home them […]

  • White Sands National Monument New Mexico

    White Sands National Monument New Mexico

    This unusual National Monument was first planned as a destination on our route coming out of Tempe, Arizona in January on the way to Carlsbad Caverns and onward to Florida. Sadly, at that time, White Sands National Monument was closed during the government shutdown over Mr. Trump’s border-wall funding. It wasn’t lifted until we had […]

  • Roswell – Lakes and Aliens

    Roswell – Lakes and Aliens

    Bottomless Lakes State Park Bottomless Lakes State Park is a beautiful place just 14 miles outside of Roswell, New Mexico. The blue-green lakes are sinkholes ranging from 17 to 90 feet deep. Fed by springs, the lakes overflow to wetlands areas that had just finished providing respite for migrating birds weeks ago. We walked along […]

  • San Angelo Texas -The Flowers and The Fort

    San Angelo Texas -The Flowers and The Fort

    My love affair with Texas wildflowers continued into our next three-night stay April 27 at San Angelo State Park, in Western Texas. Large pull-through sites next to the O.C. Reservoir had good hiking trails and a bird blind next to the campground to explore. Most of the trails in the park are open to bikes […]

  • Lake Whitney State Park Texas – Wildflowers, Birds & Cousins

    Lake Whitney State Park Texas – Wildflowers, Birds & Cousins

    April 24th finds us back in Texas at Lake Whitney State Park for three nights the week after Easter. Very happy to be using our State Park Pass and enjoying the beautiful Texas parks once again! Shreveport Louisiana KOA the night before was just an expensive one-night stop at $46.76 compared to Whitney Lake at […]

  • First Time RV Stay In Mississippi – Hattiesburg for Easter

    First Time RV Stay In Mississippi – Hattiesburg for Easter

    A festive three-night stay from April 20th over Easter at Paul B Johnson State Park just outside Hattiesburg, Mississippi Made me a little homesick for family. There was a buzz in the air with joyful activity and lots of laughing. It seemed a favorite pastime was riding around in golf carts, playing loud music from […]
