Places and Playtypie YouTube Instagram Pinterest Twitter facebook So, here we are enjoying the full-time RV lifestyle in a 29' Winnebago Outlook motor home. How did we come to live in a camper? 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

I visited (Bernie refused) the Creation Museum so you will never need to. It is everything you thought it might be and worse. It embraces blind fundamentalism and intellectual dishonesty while promoting a culture of fear and ignorance. The exhibits are bad enough, but listening to adults spouting threats of hell, damnation and vengeance to children was even worse. There was nothing amusing or ironic about this illogical waste of time. The admission was a whopping $30 and the zip line another $40 - $90. It was God For Dummies.

Where we have been

El Paso, a Painted Town
As an artist who never met a “white” space I didn’t want to fill, I belong in El Paso. A dusty, dun colored city, where the residents are attempting to cover the entire landscape with murals and brightly colored light sculptures. It’s in your face! Pretty means nothing. The brighter the better! Bring on the Roses! read more

Stalking the Wild Big Bird in Big Bend National Park
A Digital Sketchbook

The monkey on my back chattered away, "Don’t show anything." "Not good, not good..." This time, I put in my earplugs and went ahead anyway. Here is my first, short, on-line sketchbook...

The Pomtini

The History of Three Tasty Drinks, once again my sweet tooth answers the call Cocktails: Citrus! Ginger! Pomegranate! Not only do we love them, but we love to create "healthy" and "nourishing" versions of these alcoholic delights. read more

Thorns in My Butt and Cement Blocks in the Weeds Chinati, The Mecca of the Minimalist World
Chinati and Marfa have become an A-list ART destination - much to the dismay of the old-timers in this tiny West Texas town. And from what I could overhear, on one of our visits to the huge installation, there were an awful lot of people who had no idea what they were doing in Marfa, much less Chinati. One gentleman wondered aloud if the 15 Works in Concrete were former sweatboxes left over from the fort’s stint as a German POW camp. read more

We’ve Come This Way Before: Driving West Across South Texas...
West past Del Rio, Texas the Chihuahuan Desert stretches for hundreds of miles. The land is empty yet full, plain and gargantuan - it has been calling us back. We've been gone almost ten years. The land has waited for us. read more
