It’s now been over four weeks since I crossed a line that put me in the desert. The last time I visited a desert, it was for only a week at spring break, and I was 14. This is the first time I’ve spent any considerable amount of time in one. It’s another check off [...]

Monday, July 14 Today’s mission: Bryce Canyon National Park, located 73 miles from Zion. I make a sandwich, gather up snacks and my water bottle, and hit the road. The drive is very scenic. Route 9 meets highway 89 and there you turn north towards Bryce climbing through the White Cliffs of the Colorado Pleateau. [...]
Besides the numerous national and state parks I’m currently living within reach of, there are other attractions of interest as well. Some museums, which I’ll admit aren’t as high on my to-see list, but also Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, which I had heard about from other RVers and given my interest in animals, this is [...]
When I visited my family last month it got me thinking about the concept of “home”, and how the meaning of that word has changed for me over the years as I’ve traveled more. I mentioned in that post that it felt strange going back to my parent’s house in the town I’d grown up [...]
Monday, June 30 The Narrows, wow. Today, four co-workers and I got up bright and early, entered the park, and caught the Zion Canyon shuttle to the end of the line, the stop known as the Temple of Sinawava. This stop has two trails, the first is the paved Riverside Walk, which as one might [...]
After three days of working at Trading Post (pictured) I finally get to go inside Zion, although it teases me from the bluff overlooking the campground on a daily basis. On my first day I took a quick hike up this bluff and get a shot of park of the campground from above, and also [...]
Saturday, June 21 After leaving the TA in Moriarty, NM, I get back on I40. Immediately I see some tall hills rising above the flat terrain and I wonder if the road is going to go around or through them. Very soon I have my answer. After a long if not very steep climb, Bertha [...]
Man, this suspense is killing me, how about you? I received a call Tuesday evening from a person at American Land and Leisure about a Colorado camp host job I’d applied for. That particular job had been filled but he had one other in Colorado that provided the electric hookup I’d need since I can’t [...]
Saturday, June 14 Despite Cas being ready to go by about 5 pm yesterday, I opt to spend the night at LHC to enjoy a little more time not driving and soaking up the WiFi for online catchup. I am also relieved to report that my DC power problems were just an old dead battery, [...]
Tuesday, June 10 The road is calling, and I must go! Bright and early I hitch up the RV, a task that isn’t as sweaty as I feared it would be with the clouds rolling in. Then I get on I20 West and…uh, stay on it like forever. Seriously. Alabama comes quickly, Atlanta is always [...]
