OMG! What is this place?!

It’s like the Costco of gas stations. They have every kind of crazy junk food, lunch items, clothes, jewelry, knick knacks, housewares, all kinds of pickles, a whole wall of coffee, slush and pop machines. Outside they have 134 gas pumps, 4 carwash and 19 vacuum lanes! When they say everything is bigger in Texas, […]

Cinco de Cairo is a great day to be in San Antonio!

In my family, we call the 5th of May Cinco de Cairo. It’s the day my daughter, Cairo was born, so it’s a natural match for us. Today we were not with her, but instead we’re in San Antonio, and there was a lot going on. We wandered around the downtown river walk during the […]

Sleeping with the band in San Antonio!

Our neighbours tonight at Casa Walmart are the Relampaguitos, a travelling band, from Mexico. From their site: With the aim of keeping northern music alive, Relampaguitos was born, a group from Monterrey, Nuevo León. Rescuing the original sound and style made famous by Los Relámpagos del Norte in the sixties and making it known to […]

Athens, Greece – Along the waterfront

On our last trip, I didn’t spend much time down along the waterfront of Athens, so this was one of the first things I wanted to get at upon my return. The tram stops just 3/4 of a km away from the hotel so we wandered through the back streets up to catch it. Today […]

Athens, Greece – the Acropolis and discount grocery stores

This was my first day on my own. Later I would walk up to the Acropolis. But first I needed to go shopping for a small amount of groceries I could fit in our teeny-weeny mini-bar fridge. Grocery Shopping On Google Maps, I could see there were a few grocery stores a few blocks away from […]

Santa Fe, NM – A trip down memory lane

The first and only other time we have been in Santa Fe, was in 2008 when we moved Harold across the continent to come live with me in Vancouver. It was a terribly romantic trip, after having dealt with the hardships of a long distance relationship for far too long. I had taken the bus […]

Taos, NM – OMFG the bearings are gone again!!!

We’d just left Taos about 5 minutes before. We pulled over at the rest area to take a photo and as soon as Harold opened the door I smelled something burning. “That’s not us is it?” I yelled to be heard over the traffic roaring past us. “I hope not!” he responded, followed by “Yes, it’s us!” Surely […]

Reno is Burning Man central

I’d read that it was a good idea to buy everything you need well before you hit Reno since 70,000 people descending on the town at once can decimate the stock they have there. That was obviously advice from a few years back. Turns out Reno is more than ready for all the heathens and […]

In trouble with the Susanville, CA cops

The last couple of times we came through Susanville, I had thought the town looked cute and wished we’d made time to stop and check things out. This time, the place looked seedier. I don’t know if it’s having my Reno friend’s opinion of the place in my head, or if the town has really […]

Bypassed the Burner’s campground – Eugene, OR to Yreka, CA

The Valley Center Mall in Eugene, OR is a great place to stop and boondock. They allow RVs to stay up to 48 hours in the very back lot, which is right beside the walking/bike paths alongside the river and delta. We took the dogs for a hike and saw all sorts of wildlife. Nutrias, otters, […]
