“Happy but hiding from the COVID-19 Virus” can summarize this very long past year. I celebrated when the fireworks went off marking the beginning of 2021. Happy new year and I hope it has started well for each of you. While I’ve stayed at a combination of National Forest, State Parks, and Thousand Trails campgrounds with a Casino thrown in the mix, I’ve been able to find a spot every night during the 2020 lockdowns in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, and now Arizona.
Retired, traveling with my Sidekick Jagger, pursuing the life of a "Retired Vagabond" and blogging about my adventures along the way.
As I was writing another blog today I came across one of my early camps in 2014. At that time Jagger and I had been together for less than six […]
Can it get any worse? Well probably. I am still waiting on my Thousand Trails membership upgrade to finalize and there are so many holes in my reservations for the Summer. But with all this, we move on knowing this year, like no other will be full of last-minute changes that are unsettling to me.
Thompson Falls is a good place to stop about 150 miles from my Home-Base. I’ve camped here a number of times in the past. This was also the first campground that Jagger and I had a brown bear visit our campsite.
After my fast track to my Montana Homebase in May, I spent two months trying to figure out how COVID was going to play into my travels this year.
Returning from our East Coast Adventure For the short time in my life since my retirement and going “full time” in my fifth wheel (The Coach) I have the freedom […]
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be confined to the Coach from a virus called COVID-19 while traveling on the road or anything for that matter, but that’s what I am experiencing the last few weeks, and maybe for the foreseeable future.
This is a continuation of our 2019 Northern Trek to Washington State. Since I took a blog break in 2019 I have condensed many days of travel log and photos into just a few blogs. This is the second in that series.
Jagger and I wish all our followers a “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year”. Another year of camping has passed. Mostly on the West Coast, we are looking forward to the adventures of the coming year.
Jagger and I passed our five year anniversary last February 2019. During those five years, we’ve visited thirty states across America, traveling over a hundred thousand miles.
Jagger and I Had a great visit with John at our desert camp in the Queen Valley area. Our campsite was one I probably wouldn’t have found if it wasn’t […]
Just as my command to STOP reaches his ears, he looks up with a mouthful of prickly Cholla balls that had been laying on the ground near the plant. “NOOOO!” Too late.
