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.

Happy Thanksgiving, November 22

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

There is not much news since my last post.  My "elf work" at Amazon is continuing.  This year I am picking the merchandise to be shipped out.  I walk a lot from one side of the warehouse to the other based on what/where the computer/scanner tells me, picking product to be shipped. The 10 hour days go by pretty fast and it not as hard as the packing I did last year.  Joel is surviving and is working in a different department stowing the merchandise that I pick and he is counting the days until we are finished with our commitment.  We start longer hours and more days next week as shopping season starts to peak.

I have managed to get out and do a little hiking on a least one of my days off as the weather has been pretty nice.  One day I headed out to explore Logosini ( sp?)canyon where there were suppose to be some petroglyphs but ran into too much thick growth to negotiate to the end of the canyon and had to  turn around.  However, the scenery was gorgeous and the wild mustangs added to the scenery.

These mustangs look really healthy and didn't seem to mind me intruding on their turf.

Another day I hiked the south west hills of Reno in search of Hunter Lake, a hike I have been wanting to do for several years. It's one of those hikes that needs to be done in cool weather.  The hiking trail  was more on old Jeep and ATV trails and fire break roads (from last years fires), and Hunter Lake turned out to be dry.  The vistas of Reno on the return trip were worth it though.

Another day, Joel and I drove over to Virginia City and explored the old mining town. We went mid week and many of the shops  and attractions were closed due to winter hours.  Sorry, no pictures, but it is a fun place to visit.

So, that's about it for now.
