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.

Berlyn Falls South Africa

I can’t believe it’s been five months since I visited South Africa. It may take a life time to post everything I saw there. And it just keeps getting better.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents

“Good evening.”

02 Alfred Hitchcock shadow on canyon wall (1024x755)

Although taken in the morning, I believe it displays “drama, thrill and mystery” like the old TV series.

Maybe it’s just my imagination.

Playing Tourist at Grand Canyon

After we finished the laundry, one of those jobs at the bottom of my list, and checked the mail for our new glasses, which did not arrive, we took a walk up the Bridle trail to the “developed area.”

Where there’s development there’s ice cream. And I can never say no to ice cream. I just don’t usually get to enjoy it like a tourist. Very nice indeed.

Just what we needed for the walk back on the Transept trail.

This log beckoned challenged Mike to walk across, not once but there and back.

Not me, I was perfectly content to sit and watch.

MWT – Get a Map, Please

01 Lion Guardian

Lion Guardian in Africa from Web

Technology is wonderful! I love my internet and being able to stay connected with people from around the world. However……

02 Lion with GPS

Check out what happens when National Park travelers depend too much on their techno toys. This New York Times article tells it like it is.

03 Gaelyn in VC (749x1024)

How many maps can you find?

As a National Park Ranger who loves to help people it is very frustrating to deal with this kind of mentality.

So, Please, get a map. Then stop by the Visitor Center and I’d be happy to help you, with a map of the park.
