About Me

I purchased "Sadie''s House On Wheels "in late 2007 and loved traveling in a motor home so much that I went on the road full time in late 2008. I started writing this blog to help me remember all the wonder places I have been and it allows me to share those places with my family and friends. Summer of 2013 I decided to hang up the keys for a while and moved back into my stick house. After nearly two years, I am on the road again.

After spending two lazy months in the "southwest desert" as they call it in Arizona I'm home in Verdi for a short time.  Fortunately, it wasn't too much of a shock...i.e. the weather has been cooperating and has been sunny and warm. 

I made one really large purchase during my last week in Arizona.  I went to Yuma and had the Big Foot automatic levelers installed.  What a joy! I spent the first night of Plamosa road in Quartzsite. Drove to the perfect spot, although not level, pushed the "system on" button and the the "auto" button and ..voila.. all level.  Sadie freaked out and I'll have remember to put her outside next time.  When the feet come down it sounds like the landing gears on a airplane.  

I have spent the past few days sorting mail and catching up and starting to pack up.  Since I seem to really like this RV life style, I decided to rent my house out and become a "full timer" at least for the time being.  I am amazed at how much stuff I have packed into my small 1000 sf home.  It's a little overwhelming, but also a good exercise in realizing how much stuff I really DON'T need. 

I hope to have the house rented by mid-April and then take off for New Mexico where I will joining up with the Wilderness Volunteers  in Chaco Cultural National Monument for a week of volunteer work.
