Amayo Hacienda time at Lake Nicaragua – we had a romantic day with delightful hospitality, delicious local food, folkloric dances and music. If you are tourista, be sure to make Nicaragua high up on your list – but we will pass on getting too close to their active volcanos~
Come with us as we enjoy a day in Cartagena, Columbia. Take a tour through the walled city and see street performers dance, visit the Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver and many other of Cartagena’s many UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Michael - Wow, on our 3rd day drone shooting the wildflower super-bloom, we headed south all the way down past the Salton Sea to Anza Borrego State Park. Compared to Lancaster and Palmdale, you definitely realize this *is* the desert (millions of migrating caterpillars/SPHINX MOTHS) but in March the temperatures were fair enough. With little time to do it all, unfortunately we missed the desert museum until the blue hour – maybe next trip.
Grace - It was a spontaneous decision to venture further south another 200 miles, another Continue reading
Michael – Seeing the wildflower pop in the Spring is one thing – hunting a spectacular SUPER-BLOOM is something else! Traveling to southern California paid huge dividends to capture mega-awesome photos, videos and drone footage at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve!
Grace - I had stumbled upon this place while thumbing through our Instagram feed. It Continue reading
Michael – What – travel 400+ miles to hunt flowers growing in the wild at Arvin and Lebec? Yeah, sometimes it’s wise for a husband to pick up a few “atta boys” and get a chance to fly his drone! Turned out to be an awesome 3 day RV Life trip with spectacular wildflowers so we extended an extra day, going South ANOTHER 100+ miles! Stay tuned – we have two more stops in future shows…
Grace – When we were coming home from San Diego early in February I had told Michael Continue reading
In downtown Sacramento after seeing the Capitol and Crocker Art Museum, we topped off the day enjoying the good life in Old Sacramento – This town came to life during the “Gold Rush” days and after a major face lift in the 1960′s it was listed as a National Historic Landmark District. Find out about the Pony Expresses and much more in our latest video. A great place to divert from traditional RV Life and shop, play, eat and dine with fellow tourists.
On our return trips from the Sierras, we dropped by our California State Capitol located at Sacramento (last of 6 locations over 150 years). Outside, the memorial ground dedications and Vietnam statuary are beyond description and inside, be sure to check out the library. We also enjoyed the memorial commemorating Father Junipero Serra who led the quest to support native indigenous Americans with California Missions. In a future video we will highlight the 58 marquee displays featuring interesting tidbids for each of our California Counties.
With tons of snow, we head for Truckee for snow play and Donner Lake with our drone at 7:32 . Of course our Siberian Husky Kaliki (from Alaska) has a fantastic time feeling he’s “back home” again! Let us know what you think in the comments below, should we move to the snow?
At long last, we head for snow country in the Sierras. Wanting to avoid frozen pipes or tanks, we spent the first night at Colfax, Long Ravine Campground. We enjoyed the beautiful lake view, drone video footage and…Grace demonstrated The fine art of face plants (fortunate it was in sawdust). And of course life happens when we’re making plans – dealing with a new rattle to repair in our Class C motor home.
