Tourist Review – Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site

We’ve been traveling the country for about five years now and we “workamp” or volunteer as we go. We usually work 12-15 hours per person per week in exchange for our RV site and utilities. Sometimes we get a little extra too, maybe reduced cost at the park store or restaurant, free laundry or some … Continue reading Tourist Review – Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site

Tourist Review – Dead Horse Point State Park – SE Utah

When we stayed a couple weeks at Angostura Recreation Area (Hot Springs SD) you’ll remember that we had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with our neighbors Clark & Anita. They told us that as we traveled south from South Dakota through Wyoming and Utah, we just HAD to stop (and camp if we could) … Continue reading Tourist Review – Dead Horse Point State Park – SE Utah

Tourist Review – The Messenger Museum @ Cheyenne, Wyoming

There’s a lot to see and do when visiting the Cheyenne / Laramie Wyoming area, but there’s more than a few hundred miles to go between now and Casa Grande, Arizona which is our target for November 1st. We knew we couldn’t see it all. We talked with our good friends Matt and Sherry because … Continue reading Tourist Review – The Messenger Museum @ Cheyenne, Wyoming

Campground Review – Angostura Lake Recreation Area SD

We knew that after Spearfish SD, we wanted to work our way down by Custer State Park.

Our plan was to hook up with them and we’d mini-caravan together on our trip … Continue reading Campground Review – Angostura Lake Recreation Area SD

KC to Spearfish and beyond (Installment 4)

After Kansas City, we worked our way north and spent our first night’s stopover at a great little city park in Elk Point, South Dakota. $15/nite for 50 amp electric and water. There’s a dump station, but we didn’t need it. The park has multiple ball diamonds, multiple picnic shelters, plenty of scattered picnic tables, … Continue reading KC to Spearfish and beyond (Installment 4)

Our Trek West (Installment 3)

It was a long drive (335 miles) down US-35 from Miles City Iowa to Kansas City Missouri. Normally we don’t push it this hard (we are retired after all) so we usually take our time. We were on a schedule to get to Spearfish (South Dakota) before the Labor Day holiday weekend to make sure … Continue reading Our Trek West (Installment 3)

Our Trek West (Installment 2)

Tuesday morning we left the Shiawassee County Fairgrounds and heading to the Ludington Michigan area. We pulled in to our Harvest Hosts location just north of U.S. 10 and about 15 miles east of the Lake Michigan shore at Ludington. We’d been in this area of Michigan many times over the past 50 years or … Continue reading Our Trek West (Installment 2)

Time To Hit The Road Again

It’s been just 3 weeks since my total hip replacement surgery and the rehab is coming along great! I was able to set the walker aside after about 3 or 4 days and every day is better than the day before. If you’re really interested (maybe you’re considering having the surgery) you can read more … Continue reading Time To Hit The Road Again
