In relation to Meg's question below: Xscapers is one RVing community I belong to - taken in Quartzsite this past January

AAQ: Variety Show

While working at Amazon this holiday season, I’m running a weekly “Ask A Question” post since I’m not sightseeing much and have limited time to write. Have a question you’d like answered? Read more about AAQ here. Today I have answers to several shorter questions I’ve been asked lately. Are you ready? Here we go. […]

McGee campground near Crowley Lake, CA is only $5 a night. Definitely worth it for this view. Taken 6/4.

RV Views, 2016 (part 1)

Alright! IO seems to be up and working again (the issues last night were due to a problem with the server that hosts IO), so I’m not going to bed until I get this post up. I started a tradition a while back of taking pictures through Cas’ windows at the various places I camped […]

Road Worthy

The Xscapers SoCo Convergence is located in a beautiful spot. Set 2,000 feet lower in elevation than Leadville, the climate is distinctly dryer. The tall lodgepole and aspen forest farther north is replaced here by open fields complete with cactus and more sparse and shrubby pinon pine. This makes it easier to see the mountains […]

Whisked Away

There have been two types of days at my camp on Turquoise Lake near Leadville CO. The first type is partly to mostly sunny and windy, but nice enough when you’re in the sun. On these days, I’ll take my camp chair down the hill to the beach and read while listening to birds call […]

The Dreaded RV Breakdown

Note: This is a travelogue post of my breakdown near Leadville, CO. If you’re looking for what to do in case of a breakdown, that post can be found here. The dispersed camping area near Leadville, CO is a curious place. My first evening there I discover that butting right up against it is a […]

Mountain Moods

My current camp near Steamboat Springs CO is, in my opinion, the prettiest I’ve ever had. The sweeping views at the top of this hill are incredible and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s been a stormy few days up here at 10,000 feet and today I’d like to share some of the pictures […]

A foggy morning at Mt. Madonna County Park, CA

The Waiting Game

As a full-time RVer, I have more leeway in where and how I spend my time. I can decide what part of the year I want to work, and what part I want to travel. I can more or less decide where I want to travel. I do have more freedom than the stationary person […]

Mt. Madonna County Park, CA

Saturday, May 7 My time at Park Delta Bay is up and early in the afternoon I make the two and a half hour drive to Mt. Madonna County Park, part of the Santa Clara park system south of San Jose. At $40 a night it isn’t cheap, but it’s no more expensive than Delta […]

Upheaval

Edit 5/21/16: “Jessica” did not end up working out, but I decided to leave this post untouched other than to add this disclaimer at the top so new readers aren’t wondering why I never talk about her. I ended up fostering her for almost three weeks before driving her down to her new foster family […]

Not Just a Sunset

So far, the boondocking experiment has been going amazingly well. My 100w of solar is getting the job done, I’ve learned to stretch my holding tanks and propane for 3 weeks. I’m having a blast, and I’m not breaking the bank. I’ve been at the dry lake bed near Joshua Tree (the town) in southern […]

Julie's cat Chance waiting for breakfast at Joshua Tree National Park, CA on 1/8. We were at Indian Cove campground, can see the rock formations through the window.

RV Views, 2015

Here it is, the annual review of places I camped in 2015 – as seen from the Casita. The majority of these photos were taken from the inside looking out or barring that, from as close to Cas as possible. There’s been so much to write about this year that it’s a bit late, but […]

Woohoo!

The Great Fridge Debacle (part 2)

Let’s rewind time a little. In the last episode on the ongoing saga of my broken fridge, I opted to drive out to Arizona to attend the RTR and Xscapers convergence rather than wait in Texas to get the replacement done at the Casita factory. I’ve not regretted my decision, but it’s now been over […]
