    Hopi perspective [Hovenweep]

    April 2, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Today we visited two more of the Hovenweep pueblos-- Hackberry and Horseshoe. While these are certainly impressive strctures the highlight of the hike was chatting with a Hopi Indian who does stabilization work for the Park Service. He took us behind the barrier chains and talked about how NPS hires Native Americans to use modern materials (an acrylic resin) to stabilize their ancestor's pueblos. Herschel said his people have mixed feelings about intervening in how nature returns these structures to the Earth. But he personally thinks it's a good thing that future visitors will be able to appreciate the work of his ancestors. He also showed us pictographs, a spring seep and structures not accessible to the public. A real treat.Read more

    Take a Hiatus [Durango]

    February 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 1 °C

    Last week we arrived in Durango for a stay of several months to check it out as a possible retirement locale. So with this post the mobile adventures will abate and resume sometime in the spring.

    10 Artisan Ct [Durango, CO]

    June 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    As many of you know we've been house-hunting in Durango. In April we made an offer on a home that subsequently fell through when the seller decided she didn't want to move after all.

    After seeing at least two dozen scrapers and over-priced fixer uppers we had about given up. Then one came on the market that fit most of our requirements-- walkable-bikable to town, recently build, open floor plan, not too big, nice upgrades, eco-certified, etc. We grabbed it.

    So the home closed June 7 and we are headed east to supervise the moving company.
