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

My Photo

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.

Another Landers Surprise

And I thought there wouldn’t be anything to do in Landers!

Gubler Orchids,, one of the nation’s largest orchid nurseries, is located here. They have over 5,000 different orchid hybrids. It smells great, the moist air feels wonderful, and they give free personal tours to everyone, even RVers who have no room for plants!

One thing I found interesting–Since orchids don’t normally bloom for 4 years, they artificially accelerate the seasons here to make them bloom faster.

They also sell carnivorous plants. Randy bought a Venus fly trap and a Pitcher plant. We’ll see how long they last....

Say, macro photography is new on this blog, isn't it? I vote for more!

(I got some funny email from you the other day that I don't understand.)
