A few answers.

The desert is full of fun little critters to watch and enjoy. These Quail have been  fairly common visitors in our camp and are a chatty little bunch. They don't seem to have much fear of any of us and will come in pretty close to get a better look.  The most curious of the bunch waddled within about 3 feet of me who was, at that time, without our camera...


I thought this might be a good time to address a question that many folks seem to have. Apparently quite a few people feel like they would be bored here and have trouble trying to pass the time and keep occupied. Heidi and I have found the opposite to be true, we wish there was more time in the day! Between the normal day to day fun of this lifestyle, doing our various crafts, exploring the area and the various cool little shops, we are never without several things to do. Of course many of our blog and VanTramp friends have been showing up as well, adding some great memories to our lives! To anyone who thinks they would be bored here, I promise you won't be! Give it a try! 


You may have noticed that I have been a little quiet lately, I should shed a little light on that as well.  I am writing this post from the Parker Hospital where I have been staying the last few days, working on getting over another small(hopefully) lung thingy. (That's a technical term). Should be done here soon so I can catch up reading all your great blogs and write a few more interesting ones too! 

The Sunrises are every bit as pretty!

  1. The wife and I would never be bored living in a rig fulltime. In fact we are striving to do that very thing some day! I hope your "lung thingy" turns out well and you recover quickly.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. I hope the 'lung thingy' is nothing serious and you have a quick recovery. Quartzsite is a location / event that we hope to experience one of these days.

  8. I wish you'd stop using these technical medical terms, Mike - you know how much trouble I have with them ;)

    Seriously, though - I hope you can get out of that hospital soon and back to the life you love. And I wish you and Heidi and your families a very blessed Christmas.

  9. Mike,

    I hope your lung thingy doesn't get in the way of you and Heidi having a wonderful Christmas. It sounds to me like you two know how to live! I don't think I'll get bored once I get out on the road, either :-) A Blessed Holiday to you both.
