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.

Sawtooth Valley

Leaving Ketchum, we drove north over Galena Pass into the Sawtooth Valley. The valley is bordered by the Sawtooth Mountains and is the birthplace of the Salmon River. We've followed the river all the way to our current location, just south of Salmon, ID. Each time, we've camped along the river, primarily at Sportsman’s Access Areas. The river is very high and therefore not good for fishing, but Ron actually caught one today. He threw it back, but he said it was just huge. Hmmmmm.....

Idaho is loaded with wonderful natural hot springs. The one pictured is called Russian John, north of Ketchum near MM 146. What a beautiful back drop! The other picture is the Sawtooths and Redfish Lake.
