Hey guys, little west of Albuquerque and was trying to decide the best (read easiest route) for me to get down to Quartzsite. I'm a little nervous about the climb up to Flagstaff on 40 and then back…Continue

Okay, other than the jokes I'm going to get to lose 80 pounds and always park a passenger in the rear dinette seat, I'm not sure how I can lose weight up front. Pat me on the back - I got the nerve…Continue

...Well, I have to say I'm feeling a little discouraged. Our shakedown trip went wonderfully, and I really couldn't believe that after all my plumbing work there were no leaks. Everything worked,…Continue

Hi all - Yes, I'm a King of the Hill fan! I'm going to post here directly a picture of my propane tank, and regulator - I'm not even sure there's enough room to squeeze in a bypass kit, but in the…Continue

Incredible week (and a half) out here so far. I wasn't sure what to expect but despite the isolation, I have to say everything is much more intense than I anticipated. I don't think I've managed to capture it in photos yet, but the desert is beautiful. Yes, it's very dry, very rocky, but the play of colors and textures has caught me in awe more than once.…Continue

I'm a little slow with my report, but I made my final destination on Thanksgiving, and found "the tribe". For those of you that don't know, I'm doing my thesis research on solo female RVers and vandwellers. So while my ultimate destination is the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR) in Quartzsite, my final physical destination was Ehrenberg, AZ, 17 miles west of Quartzsite. There, on BLM land the 14 day rule is in effect, but not enforced.

I have to say the first leg of my trip, from Asheville, NC to Denver, CO was stressful and there were several times I was close to turning around and packing it in. Those that I've caught up with on chat have had the dubious honor of providing emotional support. In addition to the strangeness of sleeping in new places every night, I was dogged by a mechanical issue that still hasn't been resolved (I'm on my fifth mechanic now and just won't know whether the last fix resolved the issue…Continue

Had one last day of loose ends to tie up, but tomorrow, after all these months of renovations, I'm ready to go.
Tire pressure good? Check. Water level in batteries good? Check? Fluids good? Check. Everything packed, details taken care of, fresh water filled, electronics charged? Check. If anything breaks now, it has to be dealt with on the road.
I've been promising interior shots for awhile now. Remember - being an 84 I felt at liberty to mix it up and…Continue
