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.



Sayonara New Mexico

We left you hanging when we got to Jemez Falls CG. Nice Forest Service camp but reservation only. Stayed one night and were able to stay for a second. Nice area in the mountains. An interesting formation called Soda Dam was just down the road.

We wanted to visit Bandelier NM but found out we can't go there with the dogs. Can't even drive in the gate with dogs in the car. So we blew them off.

From Jemez we went to Santa Fe. There are two campgrounds just outside the city, one National Forest and one state, and the plan was to head to one of these and spend two days around Santa Fe.

One Year on the Road

Oh the places you'll go, the things you'll see! It's been one year since we started this full time traveling adventure. We've been a few places and seen some things. We've at least touched Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Arizona, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. Some 25,000 miles and a lot of campgrounds. Close to half of that 25,000 miles has been towing. But most of our time has been spent in South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.

It has been a most excellent but challenging adventure. Not a vacation,...

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......

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...

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.....
