Welcome to our Blog!

sedona 001After many years of planning, we rented our home, got rid of a lot of our “stuff”, put the rest in storage and moved into our 39′ Class A diesel motorhome, Island Girl.  The two of us went “on walkabout” from  October 2012, traveling around this beautiful continent with our wonderful dog, Angel.

In July 2016, we purchased a home in Albuquerque, New Mexico (in the town of Corrales) and sold Island Girl shortly thereafter.

In 2017, we lost our beautiful Angel (she was 15). We left home for awhile in a “new to us” 2009 Winnebago View “Island Time” and traveled part-time in our new RV for the next couple of years. Our final trip in “Island Time” was to the beautiful Baja Peninsula in Mexico.

In July 2019, we sold our Winnebago View, rented our home and moved to Playa del Carmen in the state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. No RV, but more adventures await.

  1. Just stopped by after your meet up with Mona Liza and Steve. I look forward to exploring more of your blog AFTER my hike in Colorado’s San Juans this morning.

  2. My wife and I are planning to be on the road by the summer. I wanted to ask what type of camera and lens you use in your photo’s, they look like they are professionally done, speaking from an amature photographer.

    • Thanks Tom … Appreciate the kind words about the photos. I shoot mostly with a Canon 5D Mark II body which usually as a 24-105 Canon L series lens. For wildlife stuff i mostly use a canon 50d paired with a canon 100-400L zoom. always happy to chat about gear anytime if you have any questions. Good luck on your planning! Hector

  3. Hi Brenda and Hector – stumbled across your blog via Campendium. Great writing and info! Janet and I are retiring and soon to go out on a multi month camping/traveling trip. We are going to figure out whether we like this and if we want to “buy up” to a “sportsmobile” type of van or something similar. Also considering a “build out” of a van – but to tell you the truth – I’d rather be out and about instead of working on a van. thanks for your blog!
