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 20 years, primarily "boondocking," camping free without hookups, in the Western US. My batteries are charged solely by solar panels. I welcome your comments and emails. I also make trips to other countries, although not usually with the RV.

More Beautiful Hikes

Yesterday, I took a 2-boat trip across Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine. From there I hiked to Grinnell Lake. (1st picture) The boats make it easy to get into the heart of the park. A ranger/naturalist gave an interesting talk on the way over. The big question was, How did they get the boat to Lake Josephine? (There is a .2 mile hilly stretch between the lakes.) Helicopter? No. Disassemble and reassemble? No. The answer? They used a stream that flows only in the spring. It still took 12 college guys a week to shove the boat over.

Today I hiked the first 3 miles of the Highline Trail. This trail starts across from the Visitors Center at Logan Pass, and basically goes along the side of a cliff. It’s full of great views, flowers and wildlife, including some very cooperative mountain goats.
