The Dragoon Mountains

Nov 30, Thursday (continued) From Benson, AZ I turn south down 80, which for a while follows a wash and is surprisingly green. Just before Tombstone, I veer east onto N Middlemarch Road. I’m headed for a well-known boondocking area, and all the reviews boil down to the same thing: Beautiful spot, rough road in. […]

Texas Has Mountains

Nov 27, Monday After leaving my friend’s house in Lubbock, TX on the 22nd, I retrace my route back to Carlsbad on 62. There is little public land to boondock on in Texas, and the locations near Carlsbad National Park are the first you hit headed west: a gateway to boondocker’s paradise. I’m camped in […]

Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM

Having arrived at Carlsbad, NM on the 27th, I spend a couple days working on the computer and hanging around camp. The van guy and I continue to be the only ones out here at this boondock spot off Dark Canyon Road, southwest of town. Traffic is pretty much non-existent on this spur road, it’s […]

Escaping the Freeze

After touring Hiker Trailer in Denver, CO on the 24th, I spend one more night at St. Vrain State Park just north of Denver, and then prepare to hit the road the next day to escape the deep freeze coming later this week. October 25, Wednesday I stay at St Vrain as long as I […]

Nebraska to Denver

Oct 21, Saturday In the morning, I pack up camp and leave Lions Park in Vermillion, SD. It was a good two nights, but I’ve reached my stay limit and am eager to keep heading south. Well, southwest actually. My next target destination is Denver, but it’s going to take a couple day’s driving to […]

Madison, SD, my place of domicile. Still leaves here.

Just Another Bump in the Road

After the conclusion of the beet harvest, I stick around Leistikow Campground in Grafton, ND for a couple more days to catch up on household chores, buy food and service Bertha. By Tuesday the 17th I’m ready to get back on the road! Oct 17, Tuesday It feels like a night-driving kind of day. I’m […]

Leistikow Park, ND

The small town of Grafton, ND has but one campground, so while the sign out front says Leistikow Park Campground, everyone around here just calls in Grafton Campground. This is where I’m staying while working the beet harvest. It’s directly adjacent to Leistikow Park and is owned and managed by the city, so for the […]

North Dakota Bound

Sept 22, Friday Morning is a bustle of activity, getting everything put back in the proper place in the Casita for traveling – always a longer chore after being stationary a while. It starts out warm, and is certifiably hot out by the time I’m finished, a combination of humidity and clear skies have me […]

Back Into Traveling Mode

By the time you read this on Friday I’ll be on the road again for my first big move since I arrived in Wisconsin in June. I’ve found during my time as a full-timer that three months is about as long as I like to sit stationary and I get hitch itch after that, and […]

Peninsula State Park, WI

August 21, Monday For having grown up here, there’s a ridiculous amount of Wisconsin I’ve never seen. Case in point: Door County. Door County is the ‘thumb’ of Wisconsin that juts out into Lake Michigan. It’s touristy in a small town way with a lot of vineyards and stores selling premium jams and cheese out […]
