Back when we had “paying jobs with vacations”, before we became self-employed, we traveled around Arizona and Southern Utah in a Ford F150 with a camper shell on the back. We slept in the truck, but cooked in the outdoors. We hit the road between Labor Day and Memorial Day, but vacation time was limited. Once we owned our own business, there was no money for travel, then there was no time for travel, and then there was the inability to take only a few days off at a time. All that ended in the fall of 2012 when retirement became official. Our first big trip was September 2103 to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We were gone two weeks. In January of 2014 we bought our RV. Next week we leave on our longest delayed and longest RV trip to date. We are finally returning to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and the National Parks of Southern Utah.
Getting this modern wagon stocked and ready to hit the road after Labor Day. Follow me on Instagram @TucsonKathy to see some of my pics along the way. I will try to do at least one or two pictures a day here and share on Facebook and Twitter, again you can find me everywhere at TucsonKathy. Been doing some cooking for future meals and this trip we will have the prototype for an RV Disc-IT grill. Love our Disc-IT and look forward to cooking outdoors with this smaller and lighter version.
Here it is at home in Albuquerque New Mexico. Now it’s seasoned and ready to go. Packed away in the RV awaiting it’s first destination.
The next question is I want to take this guy along on the journey. First he/she will get a good shower. I would pack some juicy prickly pear fruit and take her for a little walk when we have access to grass. Yeah or nay, the hubby says nay. We do have a place to send him to vacation camp while we are gone. How could you leave this cute little face home alone?
Either way we are looking forward to this adventure. It was our planned September trip last year, however that one got delayed due to our flood and the three month remodeling of the house. Come back and visit and see where we are visiting. If you see us on the road, give us a honk, a wave and thumbs up, that way I will know you’re one of my fans. See you on the road exploring the West!
