Mammoth Lakes, CA

September 7, 2015

Our time is winding down in the Mammoth Lakes area.  We will have been here nearly three weeks in one location.  We have enjoyed this area immensely and while we will be sad to leave we will be more than overjoyed to head to New Mexico!

We stayed put for awhile to save some money and to relax a bit.  We found a great campground close to Mammoth Lakes (9 miles away) called Glass Creek Campground.  It is a National Forest Campground that is FREE with a 21 day stay limit!

I won’t do a major review of the campground as Nina of Wheeling It did a very good one not that far back.  You can read that HERE to get more detailed info.

So what will we be doing in New Mexico?  The Balloon Fiesta!!! October 2-11.  It is held annually in Albuquerque and if you’ve never witnessed it, it is definitely a sight to behold.  We will also be visiting friends, eating green chile and basically just taking in everything that makes New Mexico unique.

It will be kind of a homecoming for me as I was stationed there at Kirkland AFB for 4 years.  I loved the area then and I can’t wait to go back to visit.

So as we will be traveling for a few days through southern California and Arizona we will probably be a bit quiet.  We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend!  We look forward to hopefully meeting many of you at the Balloon Fiesta!

Essential Oils are awesome!


I love Essential Oils!

Have you ever been curious about Essential Oils and their uses?  Do you want to learn more about them and how they can help you?  I’ve used Essential Oils (EO’s for short) for many years.  They have always been a part of my life for as long as I could remember.  As a former massage therapist, I can’t begin to describe the benefits that EO’s can have.

When I discovered Young Living EO’s I thought they would be a perfect fit for our current lifestyle of travel and exploring.  And because I believe in them so much I realized I wanted everyone to benefit from these wonderful and natural products as much as we do.  So I became a distributor!


Young Living has a great introductory kit for someone just starting in the world of EO’s.  It’s called their Premium Starter Kit.  Now, there is no obligation to ever purchase anything again if you choose not to, but if you do and want to start your own little EO business then this is the kit to get!  Here are the details:
