Captivated by Colorado

At this very moment I'm enjoying a lovely sunrise in Utah. I'm also making a promise to myself to get caught up with my writing so that I'm not having to dig so far back in my memories in order to share them. I wish I could put to pen, the … [Read more...]

To Durango and Beyond

After hovering in Westcliffe, visiting old friends and making new ones, and enjoying some heartwarming animal encounters, it was time to shove off and continue on my journey. I couldn't leave town before visiting the Paca Peace Farm though. I went to … [Read more...]

Road Trip!

I know. You're all thinking LIFE is a road trip for me, right? It's true, but as I've mentioned many times, I can't stop at some of the most beautiful places along the way while driving "The Beast", and there are some places ya just can't get to in a … [Read more...]

Colorado… Too Much of a Good Thing???

I can't believe how far behind I am on blogging! Not that it's been all that long since I last wrote, but I have an over-abundance of stories and images to share and my days have been far too full of fun and friends and beauty and adventure and dogs … [Read more...]

Elissa Joins the Journey

I have been full time on the road for more than nine months now, and still the hardest part of the journey is being away from my daughter. For those of you who are newcomers to this blog, the idea for this journey began as my daughter, Elissa, … [Read more...]

Making Tracks

At the end of my last post I was departing Atlanta after a visit with my good friends Eddie Tapp and Judy Host. Eddie was out of town when I arrived at their place, and I delayed my departure by a couple days in order to see him before continuing up … [Read more...]

Georgia On My Mind

I have to admit, even after all the storms I muddled through during my weeks in Florida, I felt a bit melancholy about leaving when I crossed the border into Georgia. Despite the nearly constant rain I found some very precious time with several … [Read more...]

Final Days in Florida

The first thing I have to say about Florida is... well, I was going to say it rains a lot here, but upon reflection what I really need to say is that I will be back. It did storm a lot during the weeks I spent in Florida, but now that I'm in Georgia … [Read more...]

Between Spring Showers

I always have the best intentions of being consistent about posting on my blog, and when I'm not I can usually blame lack of good internet connection for my delays. Most of the parks I stay at offer free WiFi, but it's usually slow at best and that … [Read more...]

Bird is the Word!

OK, I have to admit... I’m as capable as anyone at ignoring the work that has to be done when I can go outdoors and play, but to be stuck inside my RV for days on end, in the pouring rain, with NO internet connection has had me feeling more than a … [Read more...]

New Sights and New Routines

After Navarre Beach, the next planned destination was quite a ways farther down the gulf coast to visit my friend John Snow in Fort Myers. John (another old friend from the photographic industry) cast the bait when he offered a free place to park my … [Read more...]

Rolling Into Spring

I left Caddo Lake bright and early last Saturday morning with “Hawkeye” (my GPS) set for an RV park New Orleans. First stop was not too far down the road. “Mimi and Papa” (parents of my good friends Steve and Lisa Jane) live in Shreveport. This … [Read more...]

On The Road Again

Wow. It seems like it's been ages since I last sat down to write. Not much to say while sitting still in Dallas. It was great spending time with my daughter, Elissa, and some good friends while there. The rest of my time was spent tackling projects, … [Read more...]

Working My Way Through Downtime… (and stuff)

Hello friends. After shuckin' and jivin' through several tornado warnings in the Dallas area today I'm feeling the need to "connect". Let me hear from you! Blogging is still relatively new and foreign to me, and I don't really know how much my … [Read more...]

The Last of the West

After six months and more than eight thousand miles I've come full circle back to Texas in time for my daughter's spring break. It's been about two months since I met her in San Diego during her winter break, and I'm enjoying every moment I can with … [Read more...]

Two Days of Rock and Roll (day 1)

Serious play on words, but I’ve never seen so many big ROCKS before in my life, and I saw them all as I was ROLLING down the road. Well, I hiked to some, but I had to roll to get there. Thus the title of this post. I saw so many amazing sights in … [Read more...]

Still High In/On the Rockies

I've been in Colorado for more than three weeks now, and it almost feels as though I've moved here.  It's strange to be away from my RV for this long, but I am glad I decided to leave it behind in Sedona. Although most of the roads have been clear, I … [Read more...]

Rocky Mountain High

I have been working my way through the mountains of Colorado for more than two weeks now, traveling over six hundred miles of scenic highways in every kind of weather. Again I find myself short of words to describe the majestic beauty I'm witnessing. … [Read more...]

"Working From Nomad's Land"

My story was recently featured on Second Act and Entrepreneur Magazine, written by Patrick J. Kiger. I never expected so much interest in my journey, and to be considered for such prestigious sites is a wonderful honor. Thank you Patrick, I'm pleased … [Read more...]

The Mountains Beckon Me

I don't begin to know how to describe my feelings about the mountains. They do tug at me though, maybe even more so having spent the last 15 years living in Texas. My relationship with mountains is not intense, like that of an addicted climber, but … [Read more...]

Sedona… Stunning, Surreal, and Spiritual

If a picture says a thousand words this is going to be a really long blog post. :-) My drive from Wickenburg to Sedona was relatively short and easy. No surprises on the road. No huge hills or super windy turns. The comfortable roadway made it easy … [Read more...]

Not To Be Left Out

I'm in Wickenburg Arizona now and moving on to Sedona tomorrow, but before moving on with those tales and images there's a bit more to share from my time in California. I called this state home for more than 15 years. It is one of the largest and … [Read more...]

My Three Favorite "F" Words… Fun, Food and Friends!

As I prepare to leave southern California today I reflect once again on the special time I've shared with friends along the path of my journey. I feel tremendously grateful and blessed to have so many wonderful friends in my life. None more wonderful … [Read more...]

Wave on Wave

  That title is multipurpose, but as long as I’m using it I have to share one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists, Pat Green. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJWnIFlYKjs I’ve spent a lot of time the last few months along the … [Read more...]
