Life on the Open Road (April 2006 - May 2008)

The continuing saga of a single fulltime RVer who travels the western US. This is part one of my journey, from April 2006, when the blog started, to May 2008, when the blog continues at

I have been a full-time RVer for 18 years, primarily "boondocking," camping free without hookups, in the Western US. I am connected electronically with the world via satellite TV, phone and internet. My batteries are charged solely by solar panels. I welcome your comments and emails.

Mobile Codger Rendevous

I have discussed with Scott Legear and Al Vargas the idea of creating the world’s first Mobile Codger Rendevous; a gathering of independent, freedom-loving, wandering, eccentric souls for purposes of comradeship, information exchange and inspiration–somewhat like the rendevous of mountain men a century ago.

We could focus on common concerns such as free boondocking places (escape from heat, cold, hassle, sameness; the city challenge), dealing with authority, technology (that liberates, connects, amuses), rigs (tweaking secrets), strange and wonderful experiences, hobbies, etc.
And–we will elect from our number a King of Mobile Codgers.

Location and time are still under discussion. The Slabs, Anza Borrego, and Ajo after Thanksgiving have been mentioned. We will cast a wide net inviting SKP Boondocker and Boomer codgers, WIN codgers, Freeroaders, etc. More later. Open to ideas!

Maybe other people are like me and don't know about the mountain men gatherings. Perhaps you could explain what they were. For instance...

What do mobile codgers do,
when they rendezvous?
Cogitate while camping?
or non-stop complainin',
Of prices, guvmunt, women?
