Back to the Black Hills

May 14, Sunday I leave my overnight camp at Riverside Park in Douglas, WY around 10. There’s less rush this morning to get on the road because my drive is only about 180 miles and I can’t check into my campsite until noon at the earliest. I retrace my route on I25 east to Orin, […]

Traversing the Rockies

May 10, Wednesday It’s rained a rather considerable amount the last two days here near Moab, UT. This morning, camp is mud. The ground on Klondike Bluffs road is clay, and it turns into a gooey mess when wet. Soon it feels like I’m walking on platform shoes because of all the mud stuck to […]

Aaand more me and Kelly being silly

Arches National Park, UT (part 1)

April 21, Friday Well, I’ve been in Moab, UT for a week. Probably about time to drive into Arches, huh. At least I’m doing better than Kelly and Marshall, who have been in the area for nearly a month and haven’t been yet, other than our walk in near camp. We pile into Marshall’s Jeep […]

The Element of Surprise

Some of my best memories as a nomad have come from experiencing things I had no notion existed ahead of time. My recent post about Tower Arch is a good example. Discovering there was a huge arch within walking distance of my camp was a joy. There’s something to be said for the element of […]

Hitching up, Backing up, and Dumping

It’s funny how often the things that stress us most about a new a endeavor end up being so much easier than we imagined once the time actually comes. One of those classic ‘making a mountain out of a molehill’ scenarios. Learning how to hitch up, back up, and dump the waste tanks are three […]
