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.

A White Christmas

With nearly two and half months of  Amazon "picking " behind me I had planned to rest up for a few days and take the Born Free back to Portola before heading over to the coast to see mom. Jeremy flew out of Reno on the 20th to visit his brother, Justin near Washing D.C. , and dropped his dog off at the RV for me to dog sit. The plan was to   make my way to his house in Portola the next day. Well, the weather did not cooperate .  I started out Friday for Portola and had to turn back due to extremely high winds. Two semi-trucks laying on their sides convinced me that I needed to turn around.

The Marina Sparks RV park let me return to my original spot.  Saturday's weather looked even worse, but I needed to get to Jeremy's in Portola. The park said I could leave the RV and be charged a storage rate so I headed off to Portola in the Jeep.  It snowed all day Saturday and all day Sunday leaving nearly three feet of white fluffy stuff. Fun, fun, fun!!!

Yep, that the Jeep under all that white stuff.

Winter wonder land behind Jeremy's house.

Monday brought sunny skies and I attempted to snowshoe out behind Jeremy's house but the snow was too deep even for my snowshoes.  Rio had to hop like a bunny through the snow as it was over her head in places.

Merry Christmas to all!  Lots of snow! Jeremy missed his connection and texted he wouldn't arrive back in Reno until mid-day today. He is going to be one tired guy...

Weather, permitting, I hope to get back to Reno tomorrow(Wednesday) and head over the hill to the Monterey area for New Years before heading south to join up with Joel  at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument for a volunteer project lasting through March. Sort of a shame to leave all that good snow behind..LOL.

Merry Christmas to all!

  1. Glad you were able to make it back ok. Although I think the snow is beautiful, I'm glad to be in Arizona.
