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 […]

RVing in Adverse Weather Conditions Part 1: Heat and Cold

A couple e-mails have come in recently asking how adverse weather affects the camping experience, and how well the Casita handles it. I figure when several people ask the same question, it’s worth making a post out of because there are likely others who haven’t written in wondering the same thing. The article quickly grew […]

August 9, Tuesday My time at the employee campground at Old Faithful is up. It’s time to leave Yellowstone and head on to new adventures. Bertha chugs over Craig Pass and down the other side, crossing the continental divide three times on the way to Grand Teton National Park. Sunday’s storms are well gone and […]

Tips for Visiting Yellowstone National Park

On the 1st I moved camp from Island Park, ID into Yellowstone National Park for a family reunion with my parents and brother – the first family vacation we’ve had together since I was in high school.

In short, I don’t think boondocking is any less safe than any other kind of camping. The lower population density out in the desert means fewer marks for criminals, and […]

Solar and Heat for Boondocking

Back in November when I was working at Amazon, I placed an order for the solar equipment, propane heater (I don’t have a furnace), and other odds and ends needed for boondock this winter. I wrote quite a bit about it all when it arrived but I couldn’t give a review of how well things worked […]

Finding Good Campgrounds

Invariably upon arriving at a new RV park, I compare it with the places I’ve stayed at in the past. It’s not a intentional thing, just something that happens in a corner of my mind while I’m occupied with other tasks. Oh, look at how big these sites are. A lot of dirt and gravel, […]

Heat and Battery Woes

After leaving Caprock Canyons on the 6th, the last five days of my 1,300 mile journey from Wyoming to Texas wind to a close with little worth blogging about. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to get out and explore because I certainly have, but the weather is getting in my way. I’ve been hiding […]
