Anyone who decides to play monopoly knows that the first critical step is deciding what token you will choose.  Much like President Trump’s power handshake, a token determines everything.  What will it be? Do you select one of the originals? Maybe you are sophisticated enough to select one of the new pieces. Either way, You …

The journey begins

The journey begins

Drum roll please…..!!! After much deliberation, we have chosen a name for our blog….GeoAstroRV.com. It combines Geology, Astronomy and RV life into one title. I think John did a great job with it! We started out with GARVY (Geology and Astronomy RVjourneY), which morphed to GARVYlife, then OurGARVYlife. Much discussion ensued, and we decided on …
