June 10-15, 2015:  The mountains on the way always make me smile, but once I got to Denver, smiling was not as easy. I planned a week in Denver for this part of the trip to Yellowstone, mainly because I had repairs to get made to Kismet (my motorhome).  That included a stop at Competition […]

I’m so happy that I’m on the road again with Yellowstone as my main destination this time instead of just passing through like I did in 2003 on my way back from Alaska.  My mom was with me and we only had three days before we had to get back to Austin then.  I’ve wanted […]

April 18, 2015 I just didn’t get my fill of the Texas Hill Country Wildflower show that has been going crazy this time of year. During my last trip out with some friends a couple of days ago, we didn’t have time to visit Luckenbach, something I’ve never done despite all the time I lived […]

April 16, 2015: While I’m having work done on my motorhome at Texas Custom Coach in preparation for my big trip to Yellowstone this summer, I met up with a couple of new friends for a day gawking at the glorious wildflowers alongside the roads of the Texas Hill Country – a beautiful blooming day! […]

Austin, Fulltime RVing, RVing

My last post in January was all about The Big Letting Go – the process of clearing out all my stuff to get ready to sell the duplex I owned with my mom. It took a lot out of me both physically and emotionally to part with the stuff I didn’t want to let go […]

Once I got back to Austin from my last big tour of the Natchez Trace Parkway, I was looking forward to visits with family, but dreading the business of selling the duplex.  I’ve debated several times over the years about selling it but always got so conflicted and confused, I kept holding on to that […]

Family, Fulltime RVing

In reading questions from people wanting to become fulltime RVers, one of the most frequent concerns is all the stuff they have – what to keep and what to get rid of – whether to pay for storage or just let everything go. In 2001 when I started fulltime RVing it took a few garage […]

My mama, Bertha LeBlanc Quimby, left this earthly life on Sunday, November 23, 2014.  She was 88 years old and her physical body and mental capacity had declined to such an extent that near the end we all prayed for her release from the pain she had been in for too long. Once she told […]
