Down on the Suwannee

There is a popular folklore song “Old Folks at Home” (also known as “Suwannee River”). Like a lot of popular songs, this one is about somewhere. I just never really knew where “somewhere” was. Now I know. It’s in northern Florida. Originating out of the lakes and swamps in Georgia the river meanders through northern … More Down on the Suwannee

Hawaii 2019

“Pele – Hawaii’s God of the Volcano ” Coddiwomple! Not all trips start or end in an RV. My goal is to visit all 49 states in “Campah”. The 50th one is a little more difficult in a RV (Okay, VERY difficult). Hawaii is 2500 miles from the mainland and half way to the Orient. … More Hawaii 2019


PROCRASTINATION ! That should be my middle name. LOL. Campah and its TV (Tow Vehicle) arrived back in New England on September 13th and finally back in Maine on the 14th. (But I am just getting to write this blog.) Its good to be back home! From May to September and 12,600 miles; a trip … More “Elvis”


“Alamo ” On August 29th, we arrived in San Antonio. After checking in at Cranes Mills on Canyon Lake, we motored the 18 miles to my oldest brother’s house (Mark & Kathy’s) for the cordial visit and then planned the next 4 days. Their house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac in a beautiful … More Alamo

After Yellowstone!

“…Texas Bound! ” After doing the “checking out” thing on August 22, the four of us prepared for our trip to Santa Fe (Lance & Ronnie flew to Jackson and spent from Aug 17 to 23rd at Yellowstone). Early on the 23rd, we struck out for a 400+ mile ride to Laramie, WY. Here we … More After Yellowstone!


All good things must come to an end, and it is the same with the Yellowstone adventure. I have been so blessed with this experience. Being in a truly wilderness area where humans are NOT the top of the food chain is, beyond doubt, marvelous! One wrong decision, one false move, one mistake, and you … More Yellowstone


“I’m you’re Huckleberry”. One of Doc Holiday’s favorite saying. He’s most famous for living in Tombstone, AZ and being best friends with Wyatt Earp, the famous Sheriff of the Southwest. (He was also part of the shoot-out at the OK Corral.) But his life was much more colorful than the 2 dimensional story of “Tombstone”. … More Huckleberry

Hikes & Hikes

Some more hikes in the month of August. Temperatures are consistently dropping to below freezing at night and daytime highs reaching only the low 60’s. Yes, here in the high country, fall has arrived. Elk will be bugling soon. Besides Avalanche Peak and Amphitheater Lake, I also did Purple Mountain, and Slough Creek trails. The … More Hikes & Hikes

Avalanche Peak

I am nearing the end of my tenure here at Yellowstone. …But I still have several hikes left. It is only fitting that one of the toughest hikes is saved for the end. Avalanche Peak. (And I have 6 brave souls signed up to hike!) Avalanche Peak. Just its name is intimidating! Most of my … More Avalanche Peak

Amphitheater Lake

The last day of summer. Okay, you’re thinking it’s not September yet. Let’s get one thing straight. This is Yellowstone. Grant Village is at almost 8000 feet above sea level. Weather here is different. It is said that there are only two seasons here; winter and July. So, in the Yellowstone world, July 31st is … More Amphitheater Lake
