Day 11 Techapi to SF and conclusions

Our trip: SF>Barstow>Grand Canyon>Bryce Canyon>Moab/Arches>Santa Fe>Petroglyphs/Gallup (route 66)>Petrified Forest/Needles (route 66)>Joshua Tree/Techapi>SF This time on our way back we took a 30 min detour to take the 5 instead of taking 99, though it was the most direct route. The state of 99 is horrific. In an RV it is hurtful to me because ofContinue reading “Day 11 Techapi to SF and conclusions”

Day 10 Needles to Tehachpi and Joshua Tree

Once again, load up your gas in Needles, don’t get gas at the “Gas Oasis” in the middle of the Mojave if you can avoid it because it is twice the price of California gas (which is expensive already). The drive from Needles to the park was odd. Lots of middle of nowhere with noContinue reading “Day 10 Needles to Tehachpi and Joshua Tree”

Day 8 Santa Fe to Gallup

We got a late start leaving Santa Fe (noonish) so this was a short day. When I first planned I guessed this would happen and booked the Gallup RV place. Then I changed it to Holbrook (which looked like a nicer town to stay in) by the Petrified Forest National Park, but when they dayContinue reading “Day 8 Santa Fe to Gallup”

Southwest Trip and the Falcon

We will be traveling in an accessible RV with my wheelchair across the Southwest from San Francisco. Our plan is to go San Francisco > Bartow > Grand Canyon > Bryce Canyon > Moab (and Arches National Park) > Santa Fe > Gallup > Mojave Desert (via Oatman)> SF

Japan

Tokyo is very accessible. I went on a business trip in late July-August 2019. My artwork was being shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. I spent a few days installing while my husband and daughter went wandering and then we got to look around together for about a week.

Morocco

We started in Marrakesh, then went on a day trip to Essaouira, the ancient city of Aït Benhaddou, the Sahara desert, Fez, Casablanca, and back to Marrakesh by way of some Roman ruins. The travel company had guides and accessible hotels for each location who met us there, and Khalid had all kinds of special extra things to show us along the way.

SF to Disneyland California

(writing 2/26/2021) My very first plane ride with the wheelchair was from San Francisco to Disneyland. It started and ended with disaster, but we made it! I had been warned about how to prepare the chair for flight and it survived the trip there. More on flights and transit later in post. At the ParksContinue reading “SF to Disneyland California”
