When you’ve Stopped Feeling like a Tourist, is it Time to Move on?

February 28, 2022 Today wraps up another month and we’re still camped out in the Sky Islands area of Arizona and we still love it here.  We’ve reached a very comfortable point where we know where to find everything we need, there are some familiar faces we see in town, and there’s a feeling of being at home.  Nearly every day I wonder if it is time for us to move on.  I talked about this a little bit last week too so you know it’s been on my mind.  Of course, there is excitement about exploring and getting to see new places.  After…

Study on Pronghorns

February 7, 2022 My journey continues to search for a great ranch experience.  I know I could probably find some tourist experience of ranch life, but that’s really not what I’m looking for.  I want to see the beauty and the struggle.  I want authenticity.  My new idea was to put a note in the local paper so I wrote to the editor who agreed to include it in the letter to the editor section of this week’s paper.  I’ll see where that gets me.   We made a new video this week that was an impromptu idea about a day in our life…
