When you visit the West and if you look real close you just might see some of these folks.

“Onward from vast uncharted spaces, Forward through timeless voids, Into all of us surges and races The measureless might of the wind. In the steep silence of thin blue air High on a lonely cliff-ledge, Where the air has a clear, clean rarity, I give to the wind...my pledge: “ By the strength of my arm, by the sight of my eyes, By the skill of my fingers, I swear, As long as life dwells in me, never will I Follow any way but the sweeping way of the wind.” Published in On Desert Trails with Everett Ruess, G.J. Bergera & W.L Rusho (Eds.

"There is a muscular energy in sunlight  corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind."  Annie Dillard 
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome dangerous, leading to the most amazing view…
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.”  Edward Abbey

“They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars – on stars where no human race is.
I have it in me so much nearer home To scare myself with my own desert places.”
Robert Frost

Camping with our T&B Trailer in the Hocking Hills of Ohio


Welcome to “My Quality time”…. Linda and I recently

did a little camping/hiking in the Hocking Hills area

of Ohio. We love our T&B ( Little Guy ) camping trailer

For a little wandering music…


With all the rain we have had there was a little

extra water going over the falls.

Pretty windy…. makes for difficult landings/takeoffs.


"Getting to the top of the mountain is optional. Getting down is mandatory."

for some hiking,sightseeing,and just relaxing.
