Two sensible people who loved their life in New York City. Now we travel from campground to RV park to boondocking at stadium tailgating parties or in the desert with joyful abandon. We call our [mobile] home "Maybe". We are slowly visiting places around the United States. On our continental USA-RV travels, complete with our dog, we follow the coast of this country, visit unique places, eat good food, and stay as green as possible with our four panel solar power array and tell you about it in this travel blog.

Picture of the almost everyday

Amarillo, Texas is not everyone’s cup of tea. I can’t even say that it’s mine.There are definitely a couple of highlights worth visiting, but the real reason we keep coming back is because whenever we are crossing the panhandle of Texas, the winds pick up to about 50 miles an hour - gusting to 80. There is no way to drive  our high, broad profile camper in those conditions. The other reason we stop is to visit Jack Sizemore’s, fabulous, to us, RV Museum.

'…and the wind comes seeping down the plains…' for days. And we’re not even in Oklahoma yet.

Where we have been


Horse of Gold

Horse of Gold
Growing up in Washington DC and on the Chesapeake Bay, I never really noticed that heat/humidity thing. But now, OMG, after spending my first summer in the area in over 25 years, I get it. "It’s not the heat, it's the humidity!" I was able to draw some, but weeks with temperatures over 90° and crushing humidity left me clinging to the air conditioner and reading trashy murder mysteries. I did make it to the Gold Horses at Arlington Memorial Bridge to draw for a bit.

Memories in a Garden

Memories in a Garden
I am definitely time tripping as I go around sketching the Washington, DC that my family has lived in for four generations. So much has changed, but most of the places I am drawn (ha, ha) to are the same ones I have been visiting since I was a small child.

Drawing Einstein
Drawing around Washington, DC is turning out to be lots of fun, if a little hot and humid. OK, very humid. I like being a tourist in my original hometown.

Muhammad Ali- The Boy on the Cliff
We are hanging out in Washington DC this summer. We will be watching Calli ride her new horse-Maggie, seeing friends and family and I will be having Blue Light Therapy on my face and some other body parts. I plan to go out two or three times a week and draw some of my favorite places in DC. Yes, I will be wearing sunscreen, hats, long pants and long sleeves.

It’s ART, by George!

If the wind is blowing 35 to 40 miles an hour for several days in a row, you know you are in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Between windstorms, I stumbled upon an intriguing sculpture garden not far from where we were camped. And the best thing about it was the sculptor himself, George Manus. read more
