I’ve been wanting a dashcam for a while now. I feel the need to capture the animals and crazy drivers. I ordered a $300 dashcam from Amazon then decided that was too much and returned it.
Vaccines: check. Bulk pack of masks: check. We’re ready to travel! I’ve been asked how I plan our trips. Here’s how.

But we came home past Saguaro Lake and the Salt River. We were lucky to stop at a picnic area when the wild horses were passing through.
