Wow, you are the best! You, our readers, our followers, are simply the best!
It took us a little time, but we put up three posts about Bodie Ghost Town, and you guys came back with the fastest 40 comments we've ever received! Thank you! No more about Bodie, but we hope you all have a chance to visit it yourselves.
Now, did you see our new header photo? We call it "Monarch of the Desert." It's a lone saguaro (pronounced suh-wah-ro) cactus, standing tall and surrounded by more lowly desert scrub. It's located in Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona. We recently featured this photo in our other blog, One Shot Leads to Another, in which we post one picture every other day. We try to select what we feel are our best pictures, or something a little out of the ordinary, pictures we hope others will enjoy.
Our inspiration for this photography blog was John Souva, whose new post Connected to the Vine Photography recently caught our eye. John has some excellent pictures to display. And now we are also enjoying the photography of blogger Erin Erkun, whose Two to Travel's Viewfinder photo blog displays her very artistic eye.
While we are discussing blogging, have you noticed that it seems to be mostly women who are doing the writing? Why is that? Now it can't be (I hope) that men are less able to express themselves well. Golly, Al of Travel with the Bayfield Bunch is one of the best expressers in the business! It can't be because men don't have much to talk about: check out Rick's blog Rick & Paulette's RV Travels. Rick has plenty to talk about, with day hikes, doggy parks, and tech tutorials. Me? I ramble on about anything and everything.
Do you have an opinion about why more women than men write blogs? Or am I imagining things?
Maybe it's just the opposite of driving RVs. Looking around, I see a lot more men than women driving motorhomes or towing trailers. Certainly many of you ladies out there drive your rigs around, and I'm not referring only to the solo ladies, bless your little hearts. My own lady, the lovely Suzy, is virtually the only driver of our Rosie. I can drive it in an emergency, but she's the one who steers Rosie down the highway, backs into parking spots, navigates the narrow back roads, and thunders across bridges. We are often amused by comments such as "She's driving the motorhome?" or "I envy Suzy's ability to do that."
We'd be interested in hearing what you think -- not a survey, just an open discussion! Kind of low key, just like ... Or Life on Wheels.
