Free Range Vagabond Route 66

FREE RANGE UPDATE

Life on the Free Range Grand Canyon Caverns golf course According to the pictures found on egg cartons, Free Range chickens are happier.  So why not humans?  It turns out we are.  September twenty-ninth marks the one year anniversary of our vagabond lifestyle and we like it! Vagabond chickens are right. The plan was to settle…

MOTOR PALACE LOOK BACK

We’re taking a look back to when we purchased the Motor Palace, the former Jennie’s site and some of the progress we’ve made. Jennie’s building One of our first projects was replacing the roof on the old Jennie’s Bar building next door.  Water and animals flowed freely and it was forty to fifty years old.  During the…

Safe in Seligman…it’s a Wrap!

Excuse last night 8/23/13 I’m having trouble with my Eye Fi card again, it may or may not transfer pictures to my phone. Update this morning 8/24/13 It’s not transferring most most of my pictures. They’re on the card, it’s just not transmitting a signal. Here’s a couple shots at the San Juan Inn I would…

Twenty-four hours in Winslow

Route 66 and I-40 to Winslow I made it to Ludlow in time for breakfast, fueled up and arrived in Winslow around by 1:30.

Back to Route 66 and Winslow

Seligman! We scored again at Snow-Cap! Last summer’s rooftop show with John Delgadillo’s band was followed up with a performance by Angel’s band. Seligman is one of the best stops on Route 66, the Delgadillo family makes sure everyone has a good time. Angel is the person credited with organizing the movement to save Route…

Unproductive Weekend!!

Not Much Work Here We spent this weekend visiting with friends and running dead-end errands. I stopped working on Baby Monday when I ran out of parts and discovered Lori left with the truck keys in her pocket. I used the time to play around with my camera. Old stuff Baby seems pretty excited about…

Farmer Lori

Lori’s learning to be a goat farmer by starting seedlings in egg shells. When they sprout she’ll plant them in pots on the balcony off our breakfast room. She got the idea from friends who checked out of So-Cal and are living the dream somewhere in the Oregon Sticks. You can follow their adventures here.…
