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.

Going camping

01 Storm clouds over SR from BAP NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)

It’s been a little stormy looking over the canyon lately, but not much rain.

02 Aspen & Ponderosa Pine Forest Kaibab NF AZ (779x1024)

Yet we’re taking our chances and going camping in the Kaibab National Forest on our first multiple days off together since Mike started working several weeks ago.

03 View from Crazy Jug Point Kaibab NF AZ (1024x265)

View from Crazy Jug, one of those points is Parissawampitts

So many choices. I think I’ve whittled it down to Parissawampitts or Crazy Jug Points where we can park the truck camper almost on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Then rest and enjoy the view or take a hike on the Rainbow Rim trail.

04 Saffron fire smoke above Lodge BAP NR GRCA NP AZ (763x1024)

Smoke from Saffron Fire above Grand Lodge

With the predicted light winds from the west we shouldn’t be affected by the smoke from the managed Saffron Fire further south near Swamp Point.

And if we don’t like it, we can move. More when we get back.

Happy camping and avoid the smoke. Hope it doesn't storm.

Camping? or camping? So fun!

Hey, if it rains, we can just chase each other around the camper! Rain or shine, it doesn't matter... It'll be time spent with you and that's all that matters!

I think it's great you two spend so much time outdoors even though you work out too. Have a great time.

That first shot sure looks like rain though. MB

Sounds like fun. Watch the sky.

How awesome is that? You and Mike can actually spend time together on your days off. I said to my wife this weekend that I feel like going camping again.
