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.

Hop, Skip, and a Crash

After Glacier National Park, we headed west, but the heat was unbearable. So we went skipping across northern Washington, staying at each mountain pass.

At Loup Loup pass, a forest fire just to the north of us made for a spectacular sunset.

At Rainy Pass, we hiked to Lake Ann, a hike we had done 8 years ago.

As the weather cooled off, we arrived at Burlington, north of Seattle. While passing through an intersection, Diana’s car was hit by a car that went through a red light.

Ouch! She’s fine, but the car will be in the shop for 2-3 weeks. We’ve settled in at Enumclaw, a lovely town within touring distance of both Seattle and Mt. Rainier. We plan to do a lot of sightseeing.

I'm glad you are OK, Diana. Sorry about your car. I'll be in Seattle for Labor Day. Will you still be in the area then?
