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.

April 1, 2019 - Brenda, AZ - No Fooln'

March weather has been a great improvement over December, January and February. It has been pleasant enough to be outside for a change. It was a wet winter and we're starting to see lots of flowers poking up. This could be an epic wild flower season.

Desert Gold RV has a "fesitval" called Crazy Daze with many activities. We participated in a short desert "poker run" and off road "challenge course". Our poker hand was poor. The challenge course had prizes for fast, medium, and slow speeds. They had pre-runners do the course at fast, medium, and slow speeds for benchmarks......


March 7, 2019 - Brenda, AZ - Yep Again

We had great hope for February being warmer and drier than December and January. Our hopes were dashed. It was, for southern Arizona, cold and wet all, or at least most, of the month. Everyone agrees this is one of the coldest winters in many many years.

We did get away to a Fiberglass Trailer Rally at Dome Rock Feb. 7-10. There were 212 trailers, a large gathering. Tried to go last year but Hugh was sick that week.

Quite a site to see all the eggs, but we're used to rallies with more interaction.....


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.....
