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.

Golden, BC

Finally, a great spot with plenty of room! We are parked around the perimeter of a huge gravel pit, because in the evening, hang gliders land here. In this photo, our group is getting ready for a kayak trip. As you can imagine, a one-way kayak trip for 25 people is a logistical nightmare.

Reminds me of the time in Moab when a German film crew came in to photograph a cigarette commercial and we all had to rearrange ourselves so they would have a place to land the damned helicopter. It was NOT a welcomed part of our gathering!

I think my daughter and I passed you that Tuesday morning at Iceberg. We had been there since Friday and eagerly checked the trail posting every day to see if it was open yet. When we found out Tuesday morning we headed on up about 7:30 am. We had a bear walk toward us on the trail on the way up. He got off the trail and we continued up to the lake. When we came back there was a ranger who escorted us down. Had a great talk with the ranger. Seems she has been spending winters in Antartica the last couple of years.

Happy trails.
