- I began this blog as a vehicle for reporting on a 47-day trip made by my wife and me in our motorhome down to the Yucatan Peninsula and back. I continued writing about our post-Yucatan travels and gradually began including non-travel related topics. I often rant about things that piss me off, such as gun violence, fracking, healthcare, education, and anything else that pushes my button.

A New Toad!
We did it! We still have the Saturn that we had so much trouble with in Mexico, but we have a new car on order. It will be about 6 weeks before we get it and then we will sell the Saturn. The new car is a 2012 Chevy Traverse LTZ (yes, it is four-wheel-down towable). We ordered a dark metallic blue, which we believe should look really good being towed behind our motorhome (dark blue, light blue, and two grays). Oh, yes. I also told the hospital that I would be available to work a couple of days a month if they needed me! Retirement was great, but now I have to pay for a new car.
