I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

Tiger Escaped!

Well part of this first outing of the season was to test out the new toys that I purchased during the summer and have looking forward to given a run.

The first item was the Jack Antenna, which replaced our old Wingard Antenna. I have to say that I was expecting much more from this antenna based on what I had heard and it doesn't work much better than our old antenna. I think we might have gained one more channel, but it definitely wasn't worth $50.

The second item is our new shower head that worked as advertised. It does seem to be more powerful and it appears to use less water. Well worth the $27.

The third item is our Perfect Harmony bed topper. I think it is very comfortable, but I think the jury is still out for Tracy.

Finally our new O-Grill has been working great. Did hot dogs and hamburgers so far and will do bacon wrapped filets tonight, so far, so good!

On a sad note, I was frying bacon outside this morning and a women came into our campsite to let me know that her cat Tiger had gotten out the window in her rig last night and had not been seen since.

The first thing that went through my mind were the coyotes which were hooping and hollering last night, but I told her that we would keep our eyes peeled for Tiger, but neither she or I gave it much hope unfortunately.

Well that is it for us, it has been a fast but nice weekend. We have already booked our next outing and it is my hope that it will be a little cooler. I hope your weekend has been great and below are a couple more pictures of our great view.


  1. You don't say where you are camping and where the pictures were taken?
    I sure hope that Tiger is found safe and sound.
    My heart goes out to the lady, been there, done that.

  2. Penny thanks for the comment...we are at McDowell Mountain Park in Fountain Hills, AZ.

  3. We have a jack antenna and it really does work in some places. Haven't quite figured out why it works some places better than others. Our first jack didn't work and we had to replace it. The second one works much better but there are still areas that we don't notice any difference. I hope Tiger is okay but the probability is slim. Cats are really good at getting out. Hard to keep track of them all the time.

  4. I didn't think the Jack antenna would work that great but was pleasantly surprised. When we were in Frankenmuthe Michigan in August our old Bat Wing was getting one good channel and another not so good. Went to General RV located a couple miles away and it was on sale. Back at the trailer I immediately installed the Jack and we had twenty channels and we hadn't even reprogramed the televisions, or moved the trailer. Later we were at Niagara Falls KOA and they advertise five channels but the Jack brought in thirty-seven. These results were without the use of the little booster that comes with it.

    Check your coaxial cable to the antenna if it is good contact the Manufactures of the Jack antenna because they stand behind their products.

    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  5. I sure hope she finds Tiger. Sometimes, when it gets quiet at night, if the cat is around, she might be able to coax kitty out from her hiding place. When my cat has escaped (three times), he goes under the RV or a nearby car or truck. So far we've captured him each time. Whew!

  6. Nice place,and nice pictures. Glad to hear that the shower head works as advertised. We may get one!

  7. Sure hope Tiger is found safe and sound soon. Sounds like you've been pretty busy there - nice site!

  8. Great pics love the desert at sunset.
    Poor Tiger hope he returns but I also don't hold much hope.

  9. The shower head works good for us too , love it when especially when book docking. Our old batwing still works when we need it, but mostly we set up the satellite dish.
