My timing seems to be off these days - haven't caught anyone in chat in ages - so wanted to just wave, say hi, and send everyone best wishes for the holiday season!!Continue

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

We traveled down to Yuma, Arizona last week, and I wanted to share a couple of places for free camping. I am traveling with two other RVers that are planning on taking advantage of 'medical tourism'. Between us we are getting dental work, eyeglasses and medications filled. Los Algodones is very popular for those things with snowbirds. Many stay near the border crossing at the Que Casino which offers free boondocking, but is crowded and noisy. We opted to stay further out and try out some…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'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.
So, many RVers that are going to the two…Continue

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
