Endings and Beginnings

  It is finally winter in Phoenix, with early morning temperatures in the 50’s. I wore a sweatshirt and long pants for the first time this week. But, while I love the cooler temperatures, the sky is obscured by a thick brown fog because the warm air above keeps the cold air trapped with all of the city pollution. So I’m hardly outside to...

A Week of Camping

Posted by on Oct 11, 2017 in ADVENTURE, awareness, RV, RV ADVENTURE | 0 comments

After 6 months of being in the same town, going to work, having a routine, it was so freeing to have a week of just being campers.   We pulled out of Show Low last Monday morning in high winds, so, instead of towing the car, we drove the 84 miles to Winslow separately, Marika and Cody in the RV and me following in the car. We had reservations for 2...

We are in our fourth week as full-on camp hosts, and have finally settled into the rhythm of our jobs. In addition to bathroom and camp site cleaning, we are available for camper questions, do golf cart rounds to check on things, and, two days a week we sell firewood and ice. Unlike last time when we felt an urgency to get our work done, this time we’re...

Life on the Mountain

Posted by on Apr 25, 2017 in ADVENTURE, awareness | 2 comments

We are finally settling into our new home base for the next two months. We’re volunteering as camp hosts at Fool Hollow Lake State Park in Show Low, Arizona, a cool, summer getaway in the White Mountains. We’re at 6300 feet elevation, 180 miles north of Phoenix and 60 miles west of the Arizona/New Mexico state line. According to the signage along a nearby...
