My time in Arizona is coming to a close, but I want to visit one more area before heading to New Mexico. It’s not easy to leave Indian Breadrocks; it’s been a deeply restful time deep in nature with a dear friend who loves nature as much as I do. There has been very little … Continue reading Day 23: My Outside World
It takes about a half hour to pack the van. Not bad, considering how I tend to explode out of it when I settle somewhere. A mat, table, camp chair, water jug, dog kennel and my solar panels all need to find their places once again. I take time to tidy as I go. Each … Continue reading DAY 17: On the Move
I’m not much of a “bread” person - I suspect it leads me to overeat and feel bloated - but I enjoy “wraps,” which don’t have the same effect, so I buy them regularly to cuddle my salad fixings.

I think we should start by … Continue reading Day 1: Setting the Table
Spring greetings to my online hitch-hikers. If, like me, you are antsy to get back on the road, I have good news; a sweet salve for that pesky itch. Pack your bags, its time for another road trip! I’ve been on a little writing hiatus, resting at “base camp” in Ottawa; visiting friends, reconnecting with … Continue reading The Slow Food Road Trip- Coming Soon!
I love cooking, and making good-tasting, healthy vegetarian food on the road in my minivan was important to me. I’m well-equipped to start with. I have a small 12 volt fridge and a two-burner propane stove, so in many ways I have all the conveniences of home. On the other hand, my fridge is bar-sized, … Continue reading Kit’s Kitchen
