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.

It's Been A Long, Hot, Summer!

Well not surprisingly, it has been a long, hot summer here in Arizona!  I am so done with the 110+ days and really looking forward to what Fall brings.  Sure have been enjoying your adventures over the many weeks and can't wait to get our rig out again.

We have both been working hard and putting as much as we can away for our future.  Our daughter Sarah graduated from ASU Summa Cum Laude and immediately found a job at a great mattress company called Tuft & Needle, her title is Office Hero!  She is having a great time and is actually headed back from New York today were she was working on a photo shoot, she is becoming a real traveler!

Proud Parents with the Graduate!
Stephanie and Randy have been trying to buy a house in the Wilsonville Oregon area without much success.  They have put offers in on a few and have been overbid immediately, seems to be a hot market.  We are pulling for them to find a place with RV parking, we can only hope. :)

We have booked two camping trips, one in two weeks and another in November, the campgrounds fill up so quickly, thank goodness for online reservations.  We had booked our October outing and Stephanie said that she wanted to come to AZ.  We were going to cancel our camping, but thought maybe she would like to join us...sure enough, she was very excited about it and it will sure bring back some great memories.  Now we need to work on Sarah to see if she will be part of our adventure!

So that is that, I know it has been a long time without a post, but we are still here and have enjoyed your adventures, while ours have been on hold.  More to follow in the days and weeks to come, really looking forward to the cooler weather and having to wear a coat!  

Safe and enjoyable travels and thanks for stopping by for an update!


  1. Good to know you're still alive and kicking. ;)

  2. Congratulations to Sarah for a hard earned degree. Hope she accomplishes everything she sets out to do.
    Kathy and I have noticed the price of homes skyrocketing in our area to the point that if the market were to crash like it did in 08 new homeowners will never recover. It might be wise for Stephanie and Randy start small and save their cash. That way they may get their dream home at a more reasonable price then wait to sell their starter when they can get their investment back.
    Nine months is way too long to let us know that you haven't fallen victim to being swallowed by a mysterious sinkhole. Glad to hear from you and Tracy now hoping to hear from you again soon.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. We are definitely still kicking and I know we have been bad, the days seem to turn into weeks and the weeks into months and the months into years...almost forgot how to post, but sure have enjoyed all of your adventures!

  4. It should get cooler soon, I actually thought about a light jacket for the morning walk:)

  5. Nice to hear from you again, were wondering?
    We don't make many reservations, mainly because we never know exactly where we are going until we get somewhere.
    Enjoy your rv travels in the cooler weather.

  6. Way to go Sarah. That is a wonderful accomplishment. I really am not missing the heat from AZ but it's now gotten too cold up here for me. Hopefully we'll be headed a little further south later this week. Then by the time we get back to AJ the weather should be just about perfect. Good to hear from you and have fun camping.

  7. Glad to hear from you guys again. Life interferes with fun sometimes :) Congrats to Sarah, what a great person she must be! Enjoy your camping while it's cooler.

  8. Nice to see You an Tracy posting again. Congrats to Sarah!
