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.

Got the new home home, almost

Because a storm was headed our way Wed when we picked up the new RV we decided to stay a few days at a park in Apache Junction.

01 Last light on Superstition Mts under stormy sky from KOA Apache Junction AZ (1024x734)

Thurday’s last light on the Superstition Mts.

Glad we did as it rained all night and Thursday.

02 Sunset Apache Junction AZ (1024x670)

Friday’s sunset

The original plan was to go home Friday until we heard about the snow and freezing temperatures where we live. Not to mention the crazy New Years Eve traffic.

03 Snow on Superstition Mts from KOA Apache Junction AZ (1024x610)

Instead we went out for an early dinner and were asleep long before midnight. Then this morning dawned clear and cold.

Even cold inside as we’d run out of propane during the night. Definitely time to go home.

05 Looking in side mirror at RV Hwy 74 W by Lake Pleasant AZ (768x1024)

And it just kept following us.

06 Snow on the Weaver Mts SR89 N Congress AZ (1024x768)

The last leg home is the Big climb up Yarnell Hill. The Weaver Mountains sure looked pretty with a white dusting. I held my breath almost all the way as the old truck pulled along at a whooping 27mph.

07 New RV stuck in snowy driveway Yarnell AZ (1024x768)

There is snow and this is as far as we go. At least for today anyway. Won’t be sleeping in it tonight, darn it.

hehe, well at least you got stuck in your own driveway..... much better than many other alternatives.....

The snow is so pretty! Enjoy it while you get to play in it a little, it will be melted away before you know it! I bet there are lots of birds visiting your feeders!

You got so close!

Sounds like the old truck is the only one complaining about your new home! But slow and sure it made it up the hill.

Hi Gaelyn -- I saw your comment on Arija's blog and had to come by to see why your wheel estate is still parked where it's so darn cold....ok, now I see. Take care, be careful driving out there. Happy New Year.

it's already so difficult to drive on snowy roads, let alone drive with a trailer attached to a car. Drive safely :)
