Its Dec 21, 2014.
This date is very important to us for many reasons.
We are about half way through our 6 month winter sojourn, we have successfully missed the darkest day of the year in Alaska and 41 years ago we were married in Anchorage!
Its hard to believe all the things we have done and experienced during the last 41 years together. We consider ourselves very lucky to have lived this lifestyle for so long.
This winter we have become very enamored with our new mobile style of living and traveling without deadlines. Having the time to relax and enjoy wherever we want is a wonderful thing.
Possibly the only drawback is time and the limit of our imaginations. As we plan future adventures we realize that we could not possibly accomplish all of the items on our “to do” list in this lifetime….but we will certainly give it a hell of a try!!
A few highlights of our wonderful life together so far…..
Today we celebrate in the California desert with a BBQ, bonfire and some red wine and enjoy our last days before heading home for Christmas to be with family. We have had a blast boondocking in Anza Borrego and we look forward to meeting our new friends sometime in the near future.
Happy Holidays to our family and our friends, old and new !
Tim, Denise, LuLu and Tuks
Some final photos around Borrego….

Thanks Kris! We are having a blast maybe……you should come down to Ajo and meet up with us?
Have great Christmas….we miss you.
It was so magical to meet up with you guys here in the desert… you’ve led an inspiring life, and we count ourselves blessed to have met you! Congrats on 41 wonderful years together, and cheers to many more!
Thank you for your very kind comments. We really enjoyed getting to know you two and Nina.
We feel very privileged to now know some the best media bloggers there are.
Were now in Thousand Oaks but the dogs miss the freedom of the desert…..and so do we!
What a beautiful life you’ve had together! Happy Anniversary!
Wishing you both a Happy Anniversary. My how time flies!

Happy Anniversary and we miss you both! And Denise at the end of the rainbow! We have enjoyed your blog and your photos. And living in a bus, too! I still think you should write a book on your adventures. So happy you’re enjoying your well deserved retirement! Looking forward to seeing you both now that we are closer. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! No more New Years Eve Fireworks on the airstrip I’m guessing, huh? ;0)
A very Happy Anniversery to Y’all. Sounds like a wonderful spot to celebrate. We celebrated in Lees neighborhood last night with a wonderful firepit in driveway while enjoying a great neighborhood parade. Lee decked out his boat in Christmas lights and had about 15 on board. His oldest stepson led in a decked out golfcart that Lee has used for burning Man. About 30 people were at our party. The streets were lined with people and the equestrian area really gets into the spirit. The twins rode in the boat and all the lights and people kept them really entertained. Hope to see u when u get back.
Happy Anniversary! See you Thursday.
Happy Anniversy Tim and Denise!
And thank you for taking us along on your wonderful journey(s). Your well constructed blogs put some of the TV trek and travel guides to shame: maybe you should consider this as a new career.
Tell the kids Tisha and I miss them. We hope they have a Merry California Christmas! You too, of course.
