Sorry, the couple of guys I had experience with out here renting trailers are out of business. I’m not sure who else is offering small teardrop rentals around Phoenix. If you find someone, let me know!

Planning on a camping trip with my husband and have always wanted to try out a tear drop. My brother in Canada has one and loves it. I borrowed his for a week when I last visited and had a blast. My husband has never been in one and I want to allow him the experience before we ever decide to purchase one. Do you know of anyone who would rent us one for an upcoming trip? Three nights less than two hours away from Phoenix. Thanks

Maybe some day I’ll be able to get some of them out on this river under a private trip. That […]

Comment on Adventure Takes a New Direction… by David Creech http://wildernessdave.com/adventure-takes-new-direction/#comment-344972 Tue, 03 Feb 2015 03:26:31 +0000 http://wildernessdave.com/?p=2562#comment-344972 Pamela!

Welcome to the blog! I’m glad you area enjoying it.

I’m dying to get back on the bike. It’s been acting up so I haven’t been out on any rides and it’s driving me crazy. I am overdue for some adventure.

I used to have a few scooters, never a Vespa. But I had a Bajaj and couple other off brands. Had been looking at a Lambretta before I gave them up. They’re fun.

Here’s hoping to better weather and adventure on two wheels!

No doubt I would be like a kid looking in the candy store window…all those wonderful big boy/girl goodies! Next year hubby and I will be pulling our 19 ft. Airstream to ~Q~ and other places on the BLM lands, boondocking most of the way. I say next year because this year we will be fitting the Airstream with solar for boondocking at its best. If we time it right, the Overland Expo could be right on the agenda. Oh my! Serious adventurers, big serious toys, cooking foods and story telling folks…life IS perfect! Awww, retirement is such fun! Can’t see why anyone who is retired should ever be the least bit bored, in good health of course. I know at some point hubby and I will have to give up this life of adventuring around the U.S. Maybe at age 103, as Jimmie Cricket would say ;)

I ride an Aprilia…
and a Vespa. A VESPA you say?!
Yep, for sure, loads of fun, a whole different ride on two wheels and can take the knocks that the red clay roads give me, although it is not really an off-road scooter…I do it anyway ;)

I, too ride. The backroads and red clay trails of middle and northern Georgia, sometimes Alabama. As a photog, there is no better way to enjoy the lux of pulling over and capturing the moment from the seat of two-wheels. Does your wife ride yet? I say, yet?, because she may want to after seeing and hearing about some of your own adventures on the bike. Last year my husband started to ride because he saw how much I loved riding and wanted to join in on the fun. It’s cold here in the deep south right now and riding will mostly wait until early springtime, below 40 degrees and I wuss out on riding, lol. Hey, i’m in my sixties so I get to do that, right? Well, reading your blog post and seeing how you are loving the ride made me want to re-welcome you into the two-wheel fold. You painted a great picture for your readers about…why we ride! Oh, and BTW, get a SPOT and a flare gun, both are always wise when riding alone. In most states a flare gun does not require any special permits and a perfectly legal. I wouldn’t ride without either…and COFFEE, of course ;) :) Lots of coffee and a Camelpak of water under my riding jacket, under because of the drag from the winds.
Now then, time to move on and read some more of your posts, really enjoying your blog spot alot. And I didn’t know about the SOLO Campfire until reading about it here in one of your blog spots. I love and carry the SOLO small stove. That and a Trangia 27 cookset for moto-camping so that SOLO Campfire is now on my Valentine’s Day list for hubby to buy, for sure! Yes, I’m a collector of small camp stoves, only wood and alcohol ones and I will tell hubby to order it from your blog link. Anyway, that’s me in a nutshell, I guess you could say that i’m a bit of a Tom-Boy Princess, riding, hiking, boating, fishing, it’s all good and life IS full of adventures at any age. It’s about The Journey and then getting there and relaxing in the moment. Enjoy your Journeys my new blog friend.

Comment on Tom’s Thumb and the quest for the Ogre’s Den… by Dan http://wildernessdave.com/toms-thumb-and-the-quest-for-the-ogres-den/#comment-327753 Fri, 09 Jan 2015 18:04:43 +0000 http://davecreech.com/blog/?p=650#comment-327753 There are two caves that exist on the Tom Thumb’s Hike: Ogre’s Den and Miner’s Cave. The Ogre’s Den is located on the backside of the Ogre’s Head (33.683633, -111.804002) as you start to hike towards the thumb. The Miner’s Cave (33.678484, -111.802635) is the cave that contains the sandbags, table, oven, etc. I will actually be posting this information on my own blog. I have been trying to research the history of the Miners Cave (formed by a fallen boulder), I have been contacted by the preserve not to encourage people to hike there. Dave, broken images on this page as well.
