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.

More on Quartzsite, January 21

What a great week I had in Quartzsite visiting WIN friends out on Plomosa Road.  I was able to participate in some of the WIN functions, help out in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument booth, and peruse the Big Tent ( while contributing to the micro economy).

Every morning a beautiful sunrise greeted me:

You see almost everything at the RV show.  I wonder how this guy drives down the road with the VW bus on top of the old school bus.

The WINs always have at least one activity, usually more, planned for the day.  I participated in Desert Golf, steak dinner and dancing  at Somewhere In Bouse (yes, that's the name of the bar); was one of the official scoopers at the ice cream social,;hiked the desert; enjoyed campfires; and took lots of pictures of sunrises and sunsets; and I did help out some at the ORPI booth, but Joel did most of the booth manning because I was having too much fun seeing old friends.

Good friends enjoying some lounge chairs,
 which is a comfortable way to to listen to a summary of the  many events of the day.
Campfires every evening.
 A few of us went on the annual hike ...seems we do this hike every year..too bad the sky was so blah..
 We head up towards the saddle.  Our goal is to reach the top and head down the other side
 But look closely at the top:
 What a treat to see them

 My little canon  G9 doesn't have a very long zoom but I was able to catch this guy land after jumping
 Just to prove we made it to the top

 And the vistas were definitely worth the effort
Everyday the sunsets were glorious!

The RV/Big Tent show ended on Sunday, so Joel and I headed back to ORPI via Costco, Winco, and the Apple Store....I think we are set on supplies for the next two months, at least I hope so judging by the amount of of stuff that we purchased.  Thank goodness we have part of a freezer in the community house designated for our use! So now, it is back to the business of buffelgrassing..stay tuned.

PS: be sure to contact me if you want more information on the WINs a fun loving group of solo travelers.   We have a new owner and the rules have changed!!
