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.
Retired, traveling with my Sidekick Jagger, pursuing the life of a "Retired Vagabond" and blogging about my adventures along the way.
Okay, I’ve cooled my heels for a few weeks, and a lot has happened. Jagger and I now find ourselves out in the middle of the desert in Queen Valley, […]
It’s only been four full days since starting the current tank of propane, and the heater is starting to burp, oh there it goes. Out of propane once again. At least it’s 8:00 am, and the Sun is beginning to come up over the trees.
After the storm we had on New Year’s day, the temperatures just haven’t got above the freezing point enough to melt the snow and ice.

Is it possible Jagger? The holidays are upon us once again. This year is our fifth year traveling “fulltime,” with the trusty Workhorse pulling our Coach.
I pull back on the reins, slowing the workhorse down as we enter Reuter Campground, just outside of Sundance, Wyoming. It doesn’t appear this campground has a Host, at least not parked at the entrance. Near the kiosk, I block the road and climb down from the panting Workhorse, walking far enough to see the campsite.
Looking out on the vast battlefield you can see headstones everywhere. Soldiers, Lakota-Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho were buried where they fell. Many horses were also lost in the battle that day and are buried in mounds.
