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.

Landers, CA is the American equivalent of Timbuktu, Africa: The end of the world, about 35 miles north of Palm Springs. Home of extreme individuals; get-away-from-it-all deep desert dwellers. Eccentricity is commonplace here.

Case in point: George Van Tassel, builder of the Integratron pictured above. He was telepathically instructed by extraterrestrials to build this temple exactly here, without nails, to this exact pattern. Its purpose is to capture and focus harmonic, healing, anti-aging energies for those seated at its exact center. George died anyway in 1978, but the healing continues by two nice ladies who will seat you and "wash you with rejuvenating sounds" for the low, low price of $10.

That's a great price! Why do people bother going to the doctor?
