I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

New couch

Hwy 89 N through Peeples Valley
I went shopping in Prescott today and I certainly wasn’t looking for furniture.

Hwy 89
It’s a beautiful 30 mile drive over the Bradshaw Mountains.

I had specific places to go and a list. Not Christmas shopping. Well, OK I did buy some cheeses to take to a Christmas dinner. Even got to sample a few while grazing/lunch at Costco.

Bradshaw Mts
I resisted all the hubbub and greenery at Wal-Mart for a back up heater, a bra (which I’m sure you don’t want to see) and a heavy duty electric cord.

Heading home towards the Weaver Mts
Then Safeway for a few groceries because only they seem to carry my favorite ice cream, Haagen-Dazs crème brulee.

Yet while wheeling quickly past all the Christmas candy I remembered hearing about dark chocolate “kisses” and sure enough, so I bought several bags. I am greedy that way.

Weaver Mts.
I’m really not advertising for any of these companies, they just had what I needed.

Oh yea, almost forgot about the new couch which I bought at, where else but, a thrift store.

Just the right size to fit in my RV collection of boxes, but you could only be 3 inches tall to sleep on it.

Gaelyn, the mountains are beautiful. Our highways are no where as beautiful :).

I remember when my collegues travel to the US, kisses are popular to take home, because there are so many in a packet to share around in the office. :)

When I read yr blog title, I was wondering if you were buying a couch for the RV?!! Did not expect a silver 3 inch one!

Bibi said...

Well, now that is one beautiful drive! i really enjoyed this post! I also like creme brulee ice cream and Hershey's Kisses (I'm a Pa. girl), and I absolutely love your new couch! ;)

I am also a thrift shop junkie.

I love the drive thru the mountain photos. The snow and scenery is just beautiful. I love your cute little couch.

Hey, I have gotten behind on my reading and just read a bunch of your posts. I lived the tract photos and this drive and the couch. Cool.

Diane AZ said...

Gorgeous highway, cheese and chocolate photos. The couch is truly a work of art, nice find!

I love how you put in the real necessities with the beautiful surroundings. I was really expecting a couch. Have you tried M&Ms dark chocolate. Yummy. Thanks for your comments from my job venting. Guess what I wear headphones because I transcribe dictation and that stops no one, they just keep on interrupting and talking. I wonder if I get those big ones if they would notice. Ha Ha. Have a wonderful weekend.

word verification "jershi", sounds like Hersey.

Now there is a collectors item if I had ever seen on. I was also wondering about a couch for you RV.

Dark chocolate kisses would go down well just now.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I was perfectly happy in life not knowing that kisses come in dark chocolate. Now, you have possibly ruined by end of year diet.

Ice cream and me just are not an item any longer. I love it too much.

That is a great little box.

What a fun trip you had. Shopping this time of the year is not fun for me, but discovering things like that couch would be well worth the effort.

Wensleydale cheese! How "Wallace & Gromit" of you! Dark chocolate is my favorite thing in the world, and I love your new sofa! Funny, I collect all manner of boxes and containers and bowls and whatnot as well. Anything that can hold something. Wonder what Freud would say about that? Hm...LOVELY drive!

Jo said...

I loved going on the drive through the mountains with you. I simply LOVE your couch!

Jenn Jilks said...

Shop, shop, shop!!!
I love the couch! And chocolate kisses - I love those. The cat keeps getting into the bag I've put aside for the kids...he's eaten 3 or 4!

ramblingwoods said...

I guess if you have a 30 mile drive to town, you have a beautiful drive.. I like your little couch...Michelle

Ginger said...

Uh huh, Gaelyn, clever gal you are. I saw the post about a couch and said, "Wow!" And then I thought, "Where will she put it?" And then, of course, I had to see it. Cute cute cute! Pretty drive, too. I haven't been anywhere in a looooong time. I'm hungry for a trip.

Janie said...

When thumbelina visits, she'll have a bed!
The drive to all that big city shopping looks beautiful.

Karen said...

I'm glad you found the dark chocolate kisses. I told you they made them~! And that couch. How cute!

Elaine said...

I enjoyed the trip to town and love the little couch. A box collection is perfect for an RV.

Lorac said...

The mountains look so nice with the snow! That couch looks special!

jeannette stgermain said...

Another box, Gaelyn??? just kidding -it's a cute couch. Those kisses you got are my kind- dark choc.!

Quiet Paths said...

Dark chocolate love is not greed; it's a necessity! What a cute little couch - it is so ornate. Those scenes from the road are wonderful.

Sally in WA said...

OMG, I used to collect boxes of all shapes and mostly small sizes. I gave them all way years ago. I like your new couch!!

Ruth said...

I really like the couch (and the dark chocolate). The snow covered landscape is beautiful.
