Escaped Doodles

The end of May 2018 Denise and I made the jump to living full time in our travel trailer. Quite a change from "normal life".

This journal is a log of our travels with descriptions of the trials and tribulations we've gone through. Below are a few recent posts. Check out the links below for additional posts.

Dec. 27, 2018 - Brenda, AZ - Christmas

Merry Christmas. We had a very quiet Christmas in our trailer, here in Brenda. We did decorate with a few lights and our Christmas tree. Can't go too wild with the storage space we have. But the spirit is apparent.

We have recovered from our November sickness, but it carried over into the December a week or so. Then Cooper came down with a stomach ailment. Off to the Vet but they couldn't find much (besides the money in our pocket). The Vet thought it may be early kidney problems and we're looking into past blood work etc. Would hate to have special diets for both Ruby and Cooper. May need another refrigerator.


Oct. 25, 2018 - Bullhead City | Valley of Fire

We made it to Davis Camp at Bullhead City, AZ. This is a county park/campground right on the Colorado River. We've used it several times as a stop over on the way to and from Arizona. The water/electric sites have good access to the water and a nice feel. We signed up for a week.

As stated in the last installment, we came here chasing the weather. And it was good. Highs were in the eighties and lows in the upper fifties while we were there. The first day a storm went through with some serious rain. Unusual for the desert, but not unheard of. It was also windy off and on, which is the norm for Bullhead City. We didn't do much but rest. Took the kids swimming a lot.....


Why? And now of all times?

Well, that's quite a story. I could say we've each always wanted to RV Fulltime and been working towards this for 30 years. I could also say that the idea struck while we were spending time with the Monks in India, and then worked 20 years to bring it about. Or I could say that after a life threatening auto accident that put us both in intensive care to months we decided we needed to make the most of the years we had left. On the steps of the hospital rehab unit we decided to discard everything and go Fulltime......


Who? Who the heck are you?

Well, there are two of us:

Before moving to Klamath Falls Denise grew up in Toledo, OH and spent time on the Cape in MA. She did a lot of bicycling including racing and touring. She has always enjoyed the outdoors spending time hiking and backpacking. Denise has had a dog or two for at least the last 40 years. She retired from Occupational and Massage Therapy in 2013.

Hugh grew up in Klamath Falls, OR also enjoying the outdoors.....
