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.

June 1, 2019 - On to New Mexico

Leaving Prescott we shot through Payson to Roosevelt Lake for an overnight stay. Nice to be free and on the road again. The campgrounds were nearly empty, but the lake was really full. It was a wet winter. These bushes were in bloom all over, the hills around the lake were yellow. The second picture below is of the mountains to the west of the lake......


May 19, 2019 - Prescott, AZ - Preparations

We stayed at Clear Creek CG (Camp Verdi) for a week. It is a nice campground with a creek (called Clear Creek by golly) running very near. The dogs loved it since they got to go swimming several times, although this leads to tired and wet dogs.

One day we took a drive up/down to Fossil Creek between Camp Verdi and Strawberry. Likely closer to Strawberry but easier access through Camp Verdi. There are (reportedly) a number of good swimming holes along the river but we didn't see any from the road.....


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.....


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.....
