What are you doing here? If you’ve turned up here, it’s likely that you’re a past client of my tiny company. I’ve retired now, so there is no longer a tiny company. You can send me a message through the form at the bottom of the page, if you like.

  • Joshua Tree 2024

    I really like the desert. Not sure why, since it’s a totally alien environment from where I was raised. I just feel happy when we’re there. We stayed in Black Rock Campground, and it was fine. Roads were terrible and the winds were howling, but it was all good. That howling wind pretty much followed...

  • Grand Canyon 2024

    The Grand Canyon is, of course, spectacular. But. When we visited there, we’d just come from Bryce. The Grand Canyon definitely suffered in comparison. If we go this way again, I’ll want to do Grand Canyon and then Bryce. This photo looks down on the wicked, wicked Bright Angel Trail. The trail goes all the...

  • Bryce Canyon 2024

    Wowee zowee! Bryce is amazing! I took so many pictures that I haven’t even looked at them all yet. It seemed like any direction a person looked there would be something spectacular, waiting to be photograped. The shot to the right is looking down on the Navajo Loop Trail. I only went down as far...

  • Zion 2024

    Zion is beautiful. It’s a quieter type of beauty than Bryce. I’ve always said that the Siamese that we were owned by for many years before she left us had a personality like a brass band. Bryce has a personality like a brass band. It’s loud, gorgeous, and in your face. Zion is lovely but...

  • On the Road on the Road Trip

    I don’t know that I’d say that getting there is half the fun, but I will say that getting there is a lot of fun. We do short travel days when we RV, since neither of us can stand up and walk after long ones. Below are the places we stayed for a night on...

  • Eclipse Cruise 2024

    We sailed on the Discovery Princess to see the April 8, 2024 total eclipse. I booked us on that the day the bookings opened for Elites, nearly three years out. I was really looking forward to it for the whole nearly three years! The only photos I have of the eclipse are other people’s photos,...

  • Alaska 2023

    In September 2023, we did something different. Yeah, we went to Alaska again, which is not different. But this time we sailed on Holland America’s Westerdam. We like the Westerdam a lot! It’s an older, smaller ship, and it has the old-style full wrap around promenade deck that we love so much. We had some...

  • Caribbean 2023

    This sailing was on the Sky Princess, a very beautiful ship. We had our favorite cabin, “the big, fat mini-suite on Marina deck. On the Ship Some of the food on the ship was as good as any we’ve ever had on a ship. Some of it was pretty good. And some of it was...

  • Alaska 2022

    Cruise on the Discovery Princess In our experience, all cruises are good cruises. This was a very good cruise. Our Cabin Since the Discovery Princess is a Royal Class ship, our very favorite cabin is available. I call this cabin “the big, fat mini-suite.” There are only four of these on the ships that have...

  • Red Cliffs National Conservation Area

    We originally planned to stay at the little campground in Red Cliffs, but Bob became doubtful about how well the campsite would work for our RV. We were lucky enough to get reservations at Quail Creek RV, which is just down the road and under the freeway from Red Cliffs. We dodged a bullet there,...
