Wonderful Failure

Well, we failed! Our goal was to make it to The Grand Canyon and we only made it as far as Santa Fe, NM. We were just having too much fun and spending too much time at the fun stops along the way. Plus, our journey started in Central Florida so, we had to drive quite a distance just to reach Route 66 in Oklahoma City.

We didn’t have a travel schedule for a reason. I sure didn’t want to be gone for 15 days and return absolutely exhausted and feeling like we all we did was drive.

Mission accomplished! We meandered off and on Route 66, saw some fun sites, ate amazing food, and had an overall fun and relaxing trip. We will cover Arizona and Colorado on the next trip. 

We are currently making our way back east to Alabama. Since I don’t have fun vacation pics to show on our trip back, I figured I would share the goofy Daisy Mae. She sure is a good traveler and she absolutely loves the Motorhome.

Oh, and we are headed to our next “first” adventure in Alabama. More on that next week…

It’s gettin’ all Southwest…

Greetings from Calumet, OK!

We finally made it to Route 66…kind of. We are traveling on 40 which parallels and joins Route 66 on and off. The problem is that parts of the old 66 just aren’t fit to travel in a vehicle, let alone a giant RV pulling a Jeep.

This is our breakfast/gas/shopping stop for the morning. We are eating a Southwest breakfast with tortillas and stuffed jalapeños. Yummy!!

Off to the next stop…

We’re getting closer!

We’re headed to Stockyards City to play this afternoon. We’ll be staying at an RV park on a Buffalo ranch. The doggies are so excited because they will be getting some fresh femur slices for the freezer.

Big plans!!

Guess where we’re headed! 

Have Motorhome – Must Travel 


Woohoo! I’m so excited. I haven’t been to the Southwest since I was about 11 years old. Brodie has never been. So, we decided to make it an adventure by navigating there on Route 66. 

Of course, we’ll only hit about half of the historic highway but the section between Oklahoma and Arizona has a lot of the fun roadside attractions and “must-sees”.

So, I have some planning and light reading to do over the next month. These books are great! If you’re interested you can go to National Historic Route 66 Foundation and check out their travel and planning guides.
