Hot Monkey Momma!

Above is a view of our camp area here in Quartzite taken from the driver's seat of Taj. It has been a very comfortable, peaceful area for several days so far. It certainly isn't as green here as our favorite areas in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, but then, they have snow right now and we are nice and warm, so I can live with it!

That's our tree, lovely isn't it... Well, I like it, as do the cute little desert quail that have been showing up fairly often. Sadly, I haven't been able to grab a pic of them yet, but I will! I had one come up to me within 3 feet the other day and there was no way I was going to get up and grab my camera :) I had no idea how adorable they were!

Our friend Glenn from ToSimplify  showed up the other night on his way back to LA with his new larger home on wheels. As often is the case when buying a second hand rig, beautiful though it may be, there were some bugs to be worked out. We spent a very short time troubleshooting a tail light issue and isolator failure before he was off again to be in time for a gig later that evening back in LA.  Glenn's, new to him, 04 Chinook Concourse is a beautiful rig! Ya done good man! We can't wait to spend our next visit with him back here soon!

Okay, I guess I should explain that blog post title finally huh?! Well, of course I am talking about my sweet wife Heidi, who is definitely "Hot" in my eyes, and recently, has turned Taj into a sock monkey factory! Yep, she has been making van monkeys and plans to sell them. There are more details to come soon on this, and actually there will be a line of somewhat useful "cuddle monkeys" that are perfect for fellow VanTramps. Personally, I am just thrilled she isn't still trying to talk me into sharing Taj with chickens (even if they are wearing diapers)!


Another desert sunset, beautiful, but much better in person (hint, hint)!

  1. HaHa!! Love the title and explanation! ;)

    Sounds like a good place to be right now, it's cold and wet here on the shores of Cornet Bay on Whidbey Island. Can't wait to get our motorhome out to the desert!

  7. Saw some sock monkey kits at the craft store just the other day. I remember when I made one for my son about 37 years ago!

  11. I'm torn between New Years at Quartzsite vs. LA. I'd love to check out the bajillion RVers, but need to be back near the coast shortly thereafter. Hmm...
