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.

One of the most talented artists we know is our nephew, David Creyke. He works with an eclectic and ever changing combination of materials - automobile paint, pen, cardboard, watercolor, enamel and the computer - to produce his hauntingly complex paintings and prints.

Where we have been

Brand New Pearl White 2015 458 Speciale A Custom Ferrari

Tow a Vehicle? Only if it’s a New Ferrari!
Bernie’s dad has a bucket load of brothers and they produced a ton of cousins. It has been our pleasure to meet up with many of them in our travels. The Pobiaks are a fun bunch. Last month we enjoyed every minute of our time with Marilyn and Dennis Pobiak and their grown children (second cousins?) and their kids (???). Our camper, parked next to Dennis’ collection of beautiful Ferraris and classic American cars made it feel like we were living in a museum for a more

Selfie Stick

In Defense of the Stick
We succumbed! This year a selfie stick was added to our camera accessory pack. Love it. Bernie is still using the Canon 5D-Mark II for most of our couplies, but we confess that using the stick with the iPhone has added to the fun of taking another year of couplies as the world changes behind us. read more


#22 of 31: University of Phoenix StadiumPhoenix, Arizona
Thursday evening tailgating with the Cardinals fans was the story of beautiful blue skies, warm temperatures, an unbelievable sunset and one fabulous fancy pants drink mixed in a gallon juice bottle. And red - LOTS of RED - red hats, shirts, wigs, shoes, grills, cars, lips, solo cups, socks - you name it, it was RED. read more

Hepburn’s Gray- crowned Rosy Finch

Following Fred
Oh the Pinks!

“Bird, bird, bird, b-bird’s...” a verb... We birded for a week with Fred. No casual watching - we observed, checked field marks and stalked the little feathered beings through acres of rabbit bush, across mountain ridges and up stream beds.  read more

Around the Delta and the East Bay

Drawing Around the Delta and the East Bay
or How I Spent My Summer Vacation

On any given day last summer, you could find me sitting on my little canvas stool, roasting on the Delta/east side of the Diablo Mountain Range or freezing on the San Francisco Bay/west side of the mountains. see more

Living in our Ark, Part 8: Solar Power - Expanded
Good news: Bernie is a genius - he has figured out a way for us to deploy the flexible solar panels used on warehouses to give us solar power when we are camped out in the shade. We are so green these days.

The bad news is he is now looking into compost toilets. Nooooo...... shoot me now read more
