My trip to San Diego…

OCTOBER 12, 2016. Mum’s been the word about our future plans. But that’s only because we hadn’t formulated them until now. We’ve made some decisions and plotted our course, so in short order I’ll let you know “what’s next.” And perhaps after you know where we’re headed you’ll have some suggestions for us. What to see and … Continue reading »

REO Speedwagon…

REPRESENTING A ROCK STAR. All divorce lawyers dream of representing high-profile clients. As you’ll remember, I’ve previously introduced you to NFL Hall of Fame member Fred  Biletnikoff and to Eddie Feigner, whose “King and His Court” fast pitch four man baseball team toured the country and sent many a Major League player back to the dugout. … Continue reading »

Like a chicken with its head cut off…

  WHAT’S COME OVER YOU, GREG? “You’re running around like a chicken with its head cut off. You were so sluggish while you were ill that we’d almost forgotten you could move this fast. So what’s up?” “Here’s the deal. Eight months ago the doctors told my wife I had only a few hours to … Continue reading »

Emerald Cove near the Parker Dam…

MARCH 15, 2014 EMERALD COVE – EARP, CALIFORNIA.  (Who do you suppose was the idiot who decided to name the town “Earp?” Can you imagine what a good stand-up comic could do with that?) Anyhow, we’ve been camping here along the Colorado River for a few days now. Our friends Stan and Therese are parked … Continue reading »

Here’s where we’re headed next…

March 10, 2014 “On the road again – Goin’ places that I’ve never been. Seein’ things that I may never see again, and I can’t wait to get on the road again.” -Willie Nelson I love blogging! I like to write…after being a “word merchant” as an attorney for so many years I can’t get … Continue reading »

Our friends Stan and Therese…

February 21, 2014 So far during our Adventure, we’ve made some friends…some really good friends. Stan and Therese easily top the list. Back in October, when Florence and I were scrambling around town trying to wrap up our affairs before starting our “shakedown cruise” we stayed for quite a while at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park … Continue reading »

Back to Sweetwater Summit…

FEBRUARY 2, 2014. Exactly three months ago, we started the “shakedown leg” of our Adventure…a loop from San Diego across the desert, through Arizona and back again. We’ve confirmed that this way of life is a blast. We’ve learned a lot about our rig and living on the road. So, we’re ready to attend to … Continue reading »

The little town of Julian, California…

JANUARY 20, 2014. From our campsite in Ramona, Julian is just a short drive East on olde Highway 78. It’s an historic gold mining town near Lake Cuyamaca in the Cuyamaca Mountains, a premier mountain retreat, unique in San Diego because it has four distinct seasons. Wildflowers including lots of daffodils bloom in the Spring, … Continue reading »

Ramona Canyon…

January 19, 2014. Brad’s birthday. Hard to believe he’s grown, married and the father of two little boys. It seems like just yesterday when… We’ll be here in the San Diego area about a month before heading north up the Oregon coast to Washington State to visit Florence’s brother in Toutle, near Mt. St. Helens. … Continue reading »

Pechanga RV Resort, Temecula, California..

JANUARY 12, 2014. A BEAUTIFUL SPOT. As you know, we stop occasionally at truck stops and casinos, where we can park overnight free. It’s actually pretty fun, as you know from reading my earlier posts. So, on the way back to San Diego we looked at the map and decided to stop at the Pechanga … Continue reading »

Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs area…

JANUARY 12, 2014. Joshua Tree National Park is immense, nearly 800,000 acres, and infinitely variable. It can seem unwelcoming, even brutal during the heat of summer when, in fact, it is delicate and extremely fragile. This is a land shaped by strong winds, sudden torrents of rain, and climatic extremes. Rainfall is sparse and unpredictable. … Continue reading »

Palm Springs Wind Energy….

JANUARY 11, 2014. The San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm is located in Riverside County, California, just east of Whitewater and close to Palm Springs. Development began in the 1980’s. The project was undertaken and completed in this area because this gateway into the Coachella Valley is one of the very windiest places in the State … Continue reading »

Palm Springs, California…

JANUARY 10, 2014. Here we are in sunny Palm Springs, California. It’s late December and the weather is absolutely perfect…low 70’s, with bright and sunny skies. Lake Havasu was a good stop for us…in fact a really good stop, but we’re looking forward to seeing what Palm Springs has to offer. We’ve been here in … Continue reading »

Gunner and Mima…

OCTOBER 10, 2013 This is a difficult post to write. It has to do with our two beautiful German Shepherd dogs Gunner and Mima. It’s been seven months since I started this blog and not until this afternoon have I been able to actually write about them…we miss them so much. They used to go … Continue reading »
