Backpacking Trip Prep

The mad planning from early in the week transitioned to mad packing a couple days ago, and by the time you read this on Friday, Julie and I will be in the car and driving up to Grand Portage, MN where we’ll spend the night at a hotel and then catch the ferry out to […]

From a walk in Elver Park in Madison on Sunday

International Trip Prep

After the Minocqua trip with my parents last week, I got into Bertha and drove two hours south on Friday to Madison, WI, where I went to college. Saturday morning I ran (well, jogged really – I’m not a runner) a 5k fun run with my best friend Julie, and I’m staying with her until […]

Scenes Around Camp

Today’s one of those days when the words are slow coming. I’m still in the Moab area due to snow in the mountains. So, here’s a few more pictures from around camp. Spring may be slow in coming to the Rockies, but it’s certainly arrived here. I’m still enjoying the company of Kelly and Marshall. […]

Quick Announcement

Public Service Announcement: I’m going to be tent camping in Mexico from Friday through Sunday and will be out of touch during that time, although I may be able to put a picture up occasionally on social media by utilizing others’ internet. So don’t worry if you don’t hear from me for a couple days. […]

Rabbit Ear Pass near Steamboat Springs, CO.  Quite possibly the prettiest camp I've ever had.

RV Views, 2016 (part 2)

I started a tradition a while back of taking pictures through Cas’ windows at the various places I camped to show what my home and office views are like. Up through 2015, these pictures totaled no more than maybe 12 a year, because much of my year was spent parked for months at a time […]

Quiet Days at Sawtooth

Monday, May 16 (continued) I had mixed emotions about coming back to Sawtooth Canyon Campground. When I started boondocking in January, I’d decided somewhat arbitrarily that I didn’t want to visit the same camp twice in the same year. There are so many great places to see, and to me one of the points of […]

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 […]

Taking A Break

The short of the matter is things didn’t work out with with the rescue dog. She’s a good dog, the problem was mine. I feel really awful about the whole situation, and I need a break from the internet for a while to heal. I won’t be responding to comments on this post and will […]

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 family near […]
