Gone Sailin

I don’t book very many things in advance, but some things kind of have to be done that way. Here’s one of them. I’ll be sailing on a brand new, Mahe 36 Evolution in the BVI’s this year. Super excited!

Free Hurricane Alert Emails

Since NOAA stopped their free email alerts for hurricanes, I have been looking for another service that is simple and doesn’t fill their emails with a bunch of junk. I found this one, hurricanealertemail.com which is super simple and no frills. Hope its useful for someone else. Photo: Wikipedia

Time to Start Traveling Again

Time to Start Traveling Again

Well, Hopper has been adopted. I get to borrow her for this coming weekend, but after that she’s going to be living with her new family. They seem wonderful, and one of my friends who knows them says they’ll take wonderful care of her. I know they will. It’s bittersweet. I will miss her dearly. [...]

Elbow Cay on the Bucket List

Elbow Cay on the Bucket List

Photo: I Love Hopetown I’ve been thinking about visiting the Bahamas ever since I crossed over the Florida line. The thought of all these little islands – habited and uninhabited – that one can boat around and explore, along with friendly people and quaint island accommodations really fits my style. Elbow Cay was recommended as [...]

Jonesin’ for a Panga

Jonesin’ for a Panga

So, I’ve been running around in a couple boats over the last few years down here in Florida but none of them has ever been really perfect for what I have wanted to do, which is a bit of offshore fishing and a bit of inshore fishing. There really is no “perfect” boat but it [...]

Voyager RV Park in Tucson, Arizona

Voyager RV Park in Tucson, Arizona

We stayed at the Voyager RV Park in Tucson, Arizona after our well below freezing stay in Bisbee and accompanying sucky border town experience. We had a couple days left on our week in Bisbee, and had planned to head east afterwards but the winter weather hitting the entire country wasn’t motivating us too much, [...]

A Quick Border Crossing into Agua Prieta, Mexico

A Quick Border Crossing into Agua Prieta, Mexico

Having crossed into Algodones last year, we decided to give another border town a try during our visit to Bisbee so we crossed into Agua Prieta from Douglas, Arizona. The other option was from Naco, Arizona to Naco, Mexico. We drove from Bisbee to Douglas first thing in the morning around 8am (who knew I’d [...]

Queen Mine RV Park in Bisbee, Arizona

Queen Mine RV Park in Bisbee, Arizona

Queen Mine RV Park is about the only choice if you want to actually stay in old town Bisbee, Arizona itself. There is a cool looking place called the Shady Dell that used to offer hookup spaces, but now only rents out their own vintage trailers, but they are not within walking distance to anything [...]

Bisbee, Arizona – Cute but COLD!

Bisbee, Arizona – Cute but COLD!

It feels so long ago that we were in Bisbee, Arizona, but in reality it has been not much more than a month. I think the fact we covered so much ground after Bisbee and have since then been in the same spot for a few weeks makes it feel much longer, like a distant [...]

Stampede RV Park in Tombstone, Arizona

Stampede RV Park in Tombstone, Arizona

In my opinion, Stampede RV Park is the best park in Tombstone. A few of the reviews we read before checking it out made it sound pretty bad with ‘garbage’ all over the place. We first walked by while we were staying down at the Tombstone RV Park down the street to check it out. [...]
