Dancing Alone

Dec 29, Friday Saddle Mountain BLM near Tonopah, AZ continues to treat me well. Despite the crowds that flock to southern AZ during the winter to escape the cold, this boondocking area remains relatively empty. It helps that it’s a large area, with multiple spur roads. The one I’m on is just west of mile […]

April 8th – My office view at Valley of the Gods near Medicine Hat, UT

RV Views, 2017

Warning, picture intensive post! My take on the ‘best camping spots of the year’ is different from most RVers. I make a point to find the beauty in every place I visit and hate to rate them. Instead, I do this post: a pictoral review all the places I’ve camped through the year, as seen […]

Revisiting Saddle Mountain

Dec 21, Thursday With good cheer, I pack up camp at Snyder Hill BLM area in Tucson, AZ. Bertha is running well, I finally got a hike in with my friends, and now that invisible tug is pulling me westward again. Back on the road I go! The drive west on I10 is uneventful. Phoenix […]

Hiking Brown Mountain

After bringing Bertha back from the shop on the 13th, I spend most of my next week in Tucson, AZ focused on work. On the 17th I drive up San Joaquin Road to visit a friend, Malia of Malia’s Miles – a solo full-timer of 16 years(!). The last time we’d gotten together was the […]

Snyder Hill BLM, AZ

Having escaped the Dragoon Mountains before the hard freeze, I ride out the next couple nights at an RV park in Tucson, AZ while visiting with friends who are work-camping in the area. While there, Bertha starts running rough and the check engine light comes on – prompting me to make an appointment with the […]

Full-time Travel Isn’t Comfortable

Five years I’ve been on the road now. Five years of explaining to strangers I meet in my travels about what I do. Five years of hearing people say they wish they could do that too. Five years of asking why they don’t. Some of these people have given travel serious thought and have concrete […]

Happiness Per Dollar

When I was preparing to hit the road I made a list of the necessities for RVing, both things I thought of, and what other people said were must-haves. The list became so big that not only was it not affordable, it wouldn’t all fit in the Casita. There was an important lesson here: not […]

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 […]

An Observation on Self Employment

A few months ago I wrote about how having a schedule really helps a nomad keep a good work/life balance when working remotely for themselves. Today I’d just like to briefly interrupt your holiday weekend to point out one other related point that has come to my attention since I started working from my computer […]

Teardrop Build Reveal and Patreon Info

The order form for Hiker Trailer is four pages long, which I suspect could be quite intimidating for an RVing newbie. As for myself, when I received it my eyes lit up, it was like Christmas had come early. Highly customizable was just what I was looking for. I spent days perusing the Hiker Trailer […]
