Consider Southwest Colorado!

Well here we are again.  That time of year when everyone is considering where they will go for their summer 2012 adventures.  I wanted to throw SW Colorado into the hat ... so to speak.  Some folks have the impression that this area is mainly a dry desert with tons of rattlesnakes.   Truth is it can be dry, and there are snakes around IF you go looking for them.   But there is also the lush, green San Juan National Forest, and dozens of National Parks and Monuments in the "four corner"…

Driver/Guide Alaska Bound!

As a 55+ individual going back for a second season. I have one thing to say " Be careful what you wish for".

I have had a CDL for many years. In fact I was driving under the old Chauffer license before CDL. It was a long process. I applied in 09 for the 2010 season and was turned down. I traveled back to Alaska for a eight day venture. Arrived in Sept. and logged 1936 miles on a rental car in seven days.

Sunni's Stuff

I cracked up laughing when Aggie told me that a bunch of people were on here during this last Monday Night Chat...and were all wondering about my stuff. I guess I must have mentioned to many times about how I had to declutter my room, and how I was weeding things out and giving stuff away to my neighbors.

I remember how Aggie had made a list of stuff that he was taking to Mesa Verde with him...and we all jumped in with our opinions of that :) and by the time he was done there, even…

Be patient, be persistant and never give up!

Greetings and Happy New Year everyone,
