We continued playing tourist, and visited the movie town Old Tucson! Lots of staged shootouts and villians falling off the roofs. Had fun playing cowboys and cowgirls, though the only horse I rode was on a carousel. https://rollin... Read more

It has been an emotional couple of weeks, with a wedding in Parkland, FL, and a concert of protest music in Tucson. But the juxtaposition has led to a lot of thinking and processing. The result is a different kind of blog. https://r... Read more

I'm currently at the airport, on my way to Miami. Gave me time to write the blog about the dwellings I visited near the Grand Canyon, and the cliff dwellings in Camp Verde. I'm fairly certain I would NOT have liked climbing ladders against... Read more

It took us about 20 days to drive 1920 miles from Bellingham, WA, to Tucson, AZ. (Google maps approximates the trip to take 34 hours.) But we tend to stop and look around, take the scenic routes, enjoy wherever we are. The journey is ... Read more

Travelling from Washington to Northern California
Wednesday, October 24, 2018      14 comments

We've named our car Tiki because we're tiki touring down the west coast of the USA. Tiki touring is a New Zealand phrase, meaning wandering or travelling without a plan. So as we tiki on down Highway 101, we've crossed what once was the lo... Read more

Autumn comes early in this corner of the US, but the light and the leaves are golden. Nature's last hurrah before the long cold grey winter. And I got a tattoo on my knee replacement surgery scar! rollingluggagers.blogspo
