We have lots of stories to tell and pictures to show...

So. Let’s get started on this trip…


About Us

We are a retired baby-boomer couple, living in a small town in Northern New Mexico. We are both on our second marriages, and this time around, are very happily married. We used to live in Albuquerque, but we built an unusual, off-the-grid home in the mountains north of Taos and, upon retirement, left the big city for the more relaxed, and very quiet, atmosphere of rural New Mexico.

And who is MisterParks?



Great Lakes Rendezvous

Although I went to college in Minnesota and had been to Chicago a couple of times, I really hadn’t seen much else of the Great Lakes area and Joan had never been there at all. We identified 16 bucket list items on and near the Great Lakes.

Our First eBook

This book is a travelogue – a collection of daily journals describing our travel experiences over a four-month period in 2018.  Throwing in some ‘down days’ to use for resting and in case something happened to interfere with the schedule, we were able to plot out a trip of nearly four months – the longest trip we have ever done.
