Catching up: Tuweep / Toroweep Overlook : North Rim Grand Canyon

Catching up: Tuweep / Toroweep Overlook : North Rim Grand Canyon

My friend Bob from Spokane and I had agreed to meet at Pipe Spring National Monument near Fredonia, Arizona at noon Tuesday March 28th and then head out to Tuweep via the dirt Mt. Trumbull Road off highway 389. I was all set to camp at the Pipe Spring campground, but after a couple of hours of getting beaten up by the wind, I decided to go into Kanab and get a motel for the night. It had been a…

Catching up – Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion

Catching up – Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion

We left Kodachrome with a promise to myself that I’ll go back again at some point. It’s so lovely and there were other hikes I wanted to do, but the rain made for seriously mushy ground. When we were at the ranch, Argos was very excited about the horses. He is still very interested in cattle. At some point, Argos jumped into the front seat with Pugsly and decided he wanted to ride up front too. Pugsly didn’t seem bothered…

Catching up : Marble Canyon to Kodachrome Basin State Park

Catching up : Marble Canyon to Kodachrome Basin State Park

It’s been awhile since I posted about my travels. I’ve done a lot! I’ve been worried about Pugsly for a little while, so my motivation to post has been low. Honestly, I’m not much in a storytelling mode. I miss my Pugsly and am sad and tired. When I left Tuweep (North Rim Grand Canyon) last week, I knew I needed to get back to Pugsly’s vet and friends. I headed back to Prescott, Arizona, which is where I am…

R.I.P. sweet Pugsly. April 3, 2017

It’s raining right now. Fitting for how I’m feeling. The heavens cry along with me with the loss of my wonderful companion, Pugsly. I have few words now. I didn’t know it was possible to love a wee creature so much. Four years ago, she walked lost down my street and found me.

goodbyes and more adventures

I’m currently sitting outside at my friend’s ranch in Skull Valley, Arizona. I stopped in for a quick visit on Monday, and got stuck. RB Paradise Ranch is a difficult place to leave. Open arms, horsies, rock clambering, good food, Argos romping… easy to get stuck here. You see, Richard is the kind of guy who has a big heart and loves company. He is chosen family to a lot of us oddballs and I’ve been to the ranch many…

I’ve been posting a lot of photos on my Facebook and Instagram pages! When I started this trip, I decided to subscribe to (full-time RVers) Technomadia‘s “2-2-2” rule: Drive no more than 2 hours, stay no less than 2 nights and be in to your next spot by 2pm. Over the past few months I’ve done pretty good adhering to that rule. It makes for much more relaxed driving, no ‘road buzz’ when you arrive, and allows for real downtime…
