Friday, June 24 (continued) The wildfire on the hillside north of Lee Vining, CA burns merrily. I’ve determined that I’m not in any immediate danger, but this puts a serious crimp in my plans. I can’t go anywhere in case the wind changes and threatens the trailer. So much for visiting Bodie State Historic Park […]
About BeckyForget about what the world tells you your life should be like. At IO I teach people how to ditch the status quo and go full-time RVing before retirement. Included at no additional charge: seizing your dreams, living boldly, and making a difference.
Wednesday, June 22 The sun rises soft and mellow in a cloudless cornflower-blue sky, a light breeze brings the scent of sage into the trailer. A person couldn’t ask for better weather for a day trip! I’m up bright and early, throwing the things that I’ve packed into Bertha. 120, known as Tioga Road, is […]
Monday, June 20 It’s been a quiet several days at Hartley Springs Campground, near June Lake, CA. After the excitement of Convict Lake on Wednesday I spend the weekend at camp, writing during the day and taking long walks in the evening when the sun slips below the treeline and my solar power peters out. […]
Wednesday, June 15 Last Friday when I was driving out to my latest camp near June Lake, CA, I passed the sign for Convict Lake and belatedly remembered that several blog readers had recommended the place. “Oh!” I exclaim as Bertha and Cas wiz on past. I’ll have to go back and check it out. […]
Saturday, June 11 I part the slats of my blinds and peer out at the new day. The pine trees stand in ranks like dark sentinels under a gray sky. Well, won’t be getting much in the way of solar power today so that nixes staying home and working on the computer. As it’s not […]
Wednesday, June 8 (cont’d) After the fun day at Rock Creek, I come home to the most unique sunset I’ve ever experienced. As last light hits the White mountains, a band of clouds overhead turn soft white, like a beacon. The band extends from north to south. The white fades with the sun and I […]
Wednesday, June 8 The day is already heating up as I exit 395 at Toms Place, CA onto Rock Creek Road. A sign looms ahead on the right: Rock Creek Recreation Area, Inyo National Forest. There are several NF campgrounds along this road, but I don’t stop at any of them. Local Knowledge says they’re […]
Having now acquired a good amount of experience while RVing with both working in a fixed location, and working remotely, it feels like a good time to give a rundown on both types and the positives and negatives of each. First an explanation of terms, as not everyone may know what work-camping is, and definitions […]
Thursday, June 2 Southern California is in the grip of a heat wave. The past two nights I’ve gone to bed in shorts with all windows open and still felt warm, not to mention what the days have been like. Record high temperatures are expected this weekend. That settles it, time to go. Heat like […]
Saturday, May 28 The Alabama Hills is a superb boondocking location. Private, large spots set in a sprawling wonderland of sculpted boulders, majestic mountain vistas to the west and east, a nearby town for supplies and several points of interest worth visiting, and nearly endless hiking and exploring opportunities. In the mornings, I put on […]
Wednesday, May 25 I’m a typing fiend in the morning, catching up on comments and e-mails bright and early before leaving for my next camp, which by all accounts has very marginal phone reception not suitable for getting online. By 10 I’m finally hitched up and rolling down the washboard road out of Sawtooth Canyon […]
Are you wondering where to find good boondocks? What you should do to prepare before arriving? How to stretch your resources for a longer stay? How to stay safe out in the boonies? Well this is the article for you. I’ve written about most of these subjects before, but the individual posts eventually fall off […]
