Borrego Springs Sculpture Tour

Our plan all along has been to stay in the southwest for the winter where the temperatures are warm and the skies are clear (good for solar power!). After our boondocking stints near Yuma and Quartzsite we headed west to California, making our first stop in Borrego Springs, a little town tucked out of the way...

Crossing New York

Our next stop on the eastward trek was Niagara Falls. One thing we didn’t count on though was Labor Day weekend. You’d think we would have learned by now, after Thanksgiving 2014 and Independence Day 2015, but we got stuck again with no place to stay. I made a list of RV Parks and campgrounds...

Windy City and the RV Capital

Since we were so close to the Chicago area for Six Flags, we made a weekend of visiting my cousins who lived there. I hadn’t seen these cousins for about 10 years so it was great to meet up with them. Typically in Asian culture, when guests are visiting, the host really goes overboard in...

Badlands: kinda weird, very cool

After Black Hills, we headed over to Badlands National Park. We often heard that Badlands is unlike anything we’ll ever see anywhere else and that does seem to be the case. Walking around the park feels almost like being in an alien landscape, not to mention it feels awfully desolate of animal life. Unlike most...

Where the Buffalo Roam…

Our next destination on our continuing voyage east brings us to the Black Hills area of South Dakota and all the tourist attractions it offers. We hit the area about 1.5 weeks before the HUGE 75th anniversary of the Sturgis motorcycle rally. When we dropped anchor in Custer, we saw a few motorcycles, but by...

Incidentally, we found a great web site with details about all of Glacier’s hikes… here’s Hiking Glacier‘s information about the Highline-Loop Trail. We headed out nice and early and had an easy drive (no tourist traffic yet!), arriving at The Loop...

Ready to turn back east

above: our hazy view from Hurricane Hill Port Angeles, WA is our last stop before we start our long trek east back towards home (I guess it’s technically not home anymore, but it’ll always be my figurative home). I can’t believe it’s been 14 months and we’ve only made it 3/4 of the way around...

Driveway camping in Washington

  above: our view of Mt. Saint Helens from the road to parking area. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to “Driveway Camp” (camp in friend’s or family member’s driveway). Until now we’d done it in New Hampshire, Long Island NY, and our most recent time was all the way back in October in Florida....
