Phoenix: Headed home

Center map

Time to touch base.

Yup, the time has come for me to head back to San Diego—about five hours away—to take care of some maintenance (including getting the back door open!) on the Sienna and my own body (the doctor, for a checkup).

I leave for SoCal on Tuesday.


Did you know that I have lost almost fifty pounds while on the road? Eating less and having a lot of soup has been good for me! And it proves what I learned from the Chief Surgeon at NASA: “If you eat less, you will lose weight!”

Rest stop.

I’ve been chilling out in Phoenix with an old friend—who went with me to Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and places in between. I’ve been invited back so, I will see this place again in a few months.

That’s good, for winter is still present in the northwest and I’m good with warm!

The next leg.

I won’t be in San Diego for long; I’m anxious to get back on the road and see more stuff. I’ve already checked the weather for Crater Lake (still in the freezing range). I really wanted to see it and couldn’t—because of heavy snow—when I was there a couple months ago.

Of course, I will be keeping my readers (that’s you!) informed of my “new” travels. If I haven’t said it enough, thank you for sticking with me on this first excursion.

By the numbers!

The actual statistics for this website—directly from the hosting service—show over 200,000 page views since going online in late October! Visitors arrive from all over the world every day. And I can’t thank you enough.

Happy trails my friends!
