Highlights of our trip south

When you're essentially on the road in an RV for about five months, there can be a lot of different opportunities for memories. On this past trip, the longest we stayed in one spot was nine days. So because we move around a lot, we manage to see and do a lot if interesting things!

Number one memory from near the start of our trip has to be the Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. At 49, we were the oldest people in our group, although one of the guides was older than us and does this almost every day. A very strenuous, yet very fun day!


Next up was the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary at El Rosario, near the city or Morelia in Mexico. This is one of those things that should be on everybody's list of things to see in their lifetime. Absolutely stunning to see these thousands of butterflies all in one beautiful location.


Sailing in Valle de Bravo. Besides the fact that Valle de Bravo is such a cool little town, we got enjoy it with Santiago and his family. This place is not on the radar of many who RV in Mexico, but it should be.


Trying to break a pinata on Christmas Eve. We spent Christmas Eve in a small Mexican village and were welcomed to participate in the activities. What a great experience!


Dinner with a bunch of Mexican cowboys. We were invited to a fiesta where we also saw a calf being born. This whole day was one to remember...



  1. You two are so blessed to have so many great time's to look back on.

  2. very nice events to have experience in your lives... while many others will only toil on in their lives and only dream about it...

  3. Following you right along the way and totally seeing the experiences, have alot more to see that I thought!

    Glad it was a great experience! Next winter will be just as fun I'm sure!


  4. Making memories on the road. What a wonderful and exciting way to live! :-)

  5. holidays rock....your adventures look awesome.....

  6. And Whiskey's favorite memory? Hope he's feeling better.


  7. Kenny and Angela...And hopefully more to look forward too.

    heyduke50...I can't image life like that, but I guess some people don't know how to do it or are too scared to try.

    WBY...Always looking for new experiences, it keeps us young.

    Ron Joe White...Thank you, we certainly think so.

    mermaid gallery...Thanks! BTW the pictures on your site are cool and colourful.

    Neo_Stream...Thanks, it was a fun trip.

    Mojo...I think my best experience was at Hacienda Contreras in Valle de Juarz. I got to go on lots of fun hikes and the weather was perfect for me, not as hot as when we at the beach. Whiskey
