Day 90 Three states a day will keep the doctor away.

Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park is a fascinating place. When I arrived there the evening before, I had little time to get a feel for it. Sure, I saw some red formations but they were just at the campground and the eastern entrance. That morning after packing up camp the plan was to ride … Continue reading

Day 89 All fired up

Although seeing downtown Las Vegas from my room at the Americas Best Value Inn was no problem, I didn’t realize until morning that I was actually within the Henderson Nevada city limits and not actually in Las Vegas. I wasn’t bothered by that fact though. One look at sin city in the morning from afar … Continue reading

Day 88 Havasu to Hoover

I got started at sunrise in Lake Havasu State Park. I packed up camp and headed to Dennys for breakfast and wi-fi. Dennys had no wi-fi, so I swung by  Burger King, which also had no wi-fi. Then I just had to suck it up and head to the one place that I knew would … Continue reading

Day 87

Motel 6’s mattress took care of me and there is a good chance that I had the best sleep of the trip here in Lake Havasu. I felt so rested that coffee wasn’t my first thought. This would’ve been a great day to travel, but I was staying put, kind of. The plan was to … Continue reading

Day 86 Outstanding others, Oatman, and Offroading

A morning that was warm enough for a tee shirt! YES! My little desert hideout behind Mike’s Outpost and Saloon proved to be a good start to an amazing day. It didn’t take long to pack up and hit the road. The plan was to make it to Lake Havasu by nightfall and stop by … Continue reading

Day 75

A bitterly cold morning brought me to life at Picacho Peak state park. At night when you go to sleep you have a choice. Keep your pants and shirt on to combat the warmth or take them off and rely solely on the sleeping bag. The previous night it wasn’t that cold, so I just … Continue reading

Day 74 Giant pancakes, big time gun fighting, and huge cacti.

How someone can let their dog bark allllll niiiigghht looooong is beyond me. My, very penetrable, motel room walls were no match for the decibels that this wretched beast belted. I got to sleep pretty early the night before, but when the bladder fairy woke me up in the middle of the night, I was … Continue reading

Day 70 Word of the day “white”

Why is “white” the word of the day. To start off, it was snowing in Ruidoso when I left. It wasn’t bad though, only flurries. The agenda was to visit White Sands National Monument/Park and explore the rare patch of white sand dunes.  Finally, these massive, cotton ball-esque, beautiful clouds unexpectedly dominated my pictures all … Continue reading

Day 68 Frustration, Catching up, and Christmas Shopping

Last night was COLD! I had to pull what I’m calling, the groundhog maneuver, and get all the way into the sleeping bag and pull the drawstring tight. Once I did that I was nice and warm, but then I started feeling claustrophobic and  I would have to let a bit of air there with … Continue reading

Days 66 and 67 Out of this world and Under this world experiences

Day 66. My motel room at the Caverns Inn of Carlsbad New Mexico was slightly more cozy than the caverns themselves, but not by much. I didn’t waste any time getting packed and out of there. 18 miles southwest of Carlsbad is the Carlsbad Caverns National Park. My agenda for the day was to go … Continue reading
