Desert passage

“Don’t you listen to him Dan, he’s a devil not a man and he spread the burning sand with water…” Okay I don’t know who sang that song but it felt about right today; only for us it was don’t listen to Dan. There have been two Dan’s come our way and they were both

Bump in the Road

Life is full of bumps in the road and for Interstate 10 that might be an understatement. I didn’t think it could get much worse till we hit the construction on 8 while bypassing Phoenix. The construction pushed all of us off on a bumpy, potholed, crumbling shoulder which if you erred even a little

Gabe and Grace

What does Gabriel and Grace have in common other than both starting with a g? It seems that a huge shepherd can cause a grace point. We were staying at the Silverado RV Resort  a 55+ resort whose main residents are northerner staying there for the winter months. Every time we walked Gabe we had

The Storm That Never Was

It’s been gray out all day and they are calling for severe thunderstorms with possible hail and strong winds. Alrighty then, here we are in a travel trailer and they are predicting stormy weather. I decided that I can appeal to a higher meteorologist than the one I’m listening to and rebuke the storm or

Shuffling

This past few days have felt like playing cards. How’s that you might ask? It has consisted of shuffling things from one storage area to another and then doing it again and again. The first unpack consisted of merely getting things into the trailer and out of the way. The next one was to find

Waiting

It’s not always easy to wait. We are waiting on the mud to dry to load up the trailer. We are waiting till Monday to see if we have indeed found the right vehicle. We are waiting on the promised upgrade for our room. It is important to remember that waiting can be frustrating or
