Quartzsite Arizona Plomosa Rd BLM

Seeing as it was December and the big crowds for Quartzsite had not yet arrived we thought Plomosa Rd BLM might have some wide open spaces. So we moved out of Hi Jolly BLM and went over to Plomosa BLM and scouted out a site with tons of room. YAY! We drove east on Plomosa Rd all the way to …

Quartzsite Arizona

We headed to Quartzsite for a short stay on our way home from Borrego Springs.  Even though we were just there recently we still wanted to stop and enjoy a few days of boondocking and have a bit of time to enjoy the town.   We decided to stay a night or 2 at Hi Jolly BLM since we wanted …

Arizona Sunset Crater NM Bonito Campground

We left Panguitch and headed south on Highway 89 passing spectacular scenery on our way to Kanab. There are places that are reminiscent of Bryce Canyon, probably because it is in the same area.   It wasn’t long before we were in Kanab known at the Greatest Earth on Show!   Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument sits in southern Utah and …

Lake Superior Neys Provincial Park Ontario

We drove north from Lake Superior Provincial Park on the Trans Canada Highway and stopped in the lovely town of WaWa, Ontario.  WaWa takes it name from an indigenous word for goose and has a 28 ft metal goose sculpture in town. Fun!   Which brings us to our next scene which was Young’s General Store. Since our last name …

We drove from Chutes Provincial Park to Lake Superior Provincial Park along the Trans Canada Highway. The highway follows the shoreline of Lake Superior but there are very few places where you can actually view Lake Superior from the road.   The city of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario sits on the border with Michigan in the US and is known …

Chutes Provincial Park Ontario

We headed north from Killbear Provincial Park in Parry Sound on the Trans Canada Highway to Sudbury, known for it’s giant 1951 replica 30′ nickel, and on west to Chutes Provincial Park. It was a lovely drive and no, we didn’t see the nickel. Apparently, the parking lot there (Dynamic Earth Museum) does not accommodate RV’s with any pull thrus …

Prince Edward County Ontario

We drove to our family’s house in Frankford driving through Prince Edward County area. It is a beautiful area. It is gorgeous countryside yet not that far from the big city of Toronto. It is hard to believe!   Yay, we made it to their house, backed in, hooked up to electric and were treated like royalty. We had a …

Napanee Ontario Walmart

Yep, we did it! We parked in a Walmart parking lot overnight. Not that there’s anything wrong it but it is just something we never do. But this time we needed to be in the area to visit friends and there just wasn’t any place else to stay.   It worked out fine. We asked the manager if we could …

Kingston Ontario

We drove from Quebec City to Kingston, Ontario taking the Highway 30 bypass around Montreal. Highway 30 goes over Grand Ile where you first cross a 2.5 km bridge over the Beauharnois Canal and then a 1.8 km bridge over the St. Lawrence River (toll)  followed by a 100m  tunnel under the Soulange Canal. It was a quick, easy journey …
