Onwards into New Mexico

When I think of New Mexico, it’s all about Breaking Bad. I’m sure New Mexicans roll their eyes at people like me, just like the Lodi people do about Sons of Anarchy fans. I’ve been here before and I definitely know it’s more than one tv show – no matter how amazing that show was […]

I can’t bypass the starving dogs of Kayenta without wondering …

My brother visited this area last Spring and came back with such a horrible story about the poor, starving dogs in Kayenta. In his words: “I am pissed with the community of Kayenta, AZ. Every gas station, convenience store, fast food parking lot has a stray starving dog. I spent the entire night trying to […]

Lake Havasu, AZ

We’ve passed lake Havasu by a bunch of times, driving just north or just south of it, but never managing to fit it in. I had heard differing opinions about it, and I hadn’t felt in a hurry to get there, but I have a desire to see everywhere so it had to be experienced, […]

Phoenix, AZ

It seems that Phoenix is turning into our way station in the southwest. We like to spend most of our time boondocking, but it’s nice to have a place where we can plugin, do laundry, shop and dine out. That is what Phoenix is to us, a place to recharge, and restock. We returned to […]

Maricopa, AZ

On Monday, we drove up from Tucson to Maricopa, AZ, an outlying town in the Phoenix metropolitan area. We pulled into a very full parking lot at the Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and found a spot in the overflow lot. After getting the trailer and dogs taken care of, we wandered into the casino where we both […]

Tombstone and Bisbee, AZ

On Sunday, my parents offered to look after our dogs while we drove down to Tombstone and Bisbee. We left early, forsaking breakfast to get on the road, but the temperature was already pretty hot. By the time we drove into Tombstone, we were both pretty hungry and the sun was blaring hot. Cars lined […]

Tucson, AZ – Kartchner Caverns

On Saturday, we drove out to Kartchner Caverns State Park. I found out, belatedly, that it’s recommended to buy tickets in advance, but it worked to our benefit, since we got the last two tickets for the very next tour, instead of having to sit there waiting for our time. You pretty much can’t bring anything […]

Tucson

Tucson seems like a more blue collared version of Phoenix. We boondocked at the Casino Del Sol resort, just southwest of the city on the San Xavier Reservation. There were a ton of RVs there. We were told by one of our neighbours that the casino doesn’t have a limit on how long people can […]

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument

We awoke today to a beautiful sunny clear sky. I got up and took the dogs for a walk into the desert. The only sounds I could hear were the different calls of the birds and the shuffling of our feet. There was a slight breeze and the warmth of the sun was just perfect. […]

Why does it have to rain sooooooo much? Why, AZ

The rain hammered us all night long. I woke up a number of times, and imagined the pool growing around us, and up the side of our trailer. “By now it’s probably at the second step.” my imagination needled me. Then the next wake-up, “Probably at the top step now.” I assuaged my fears, thinking as […]
