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.

Christmas with the WINs

This free BLM camping spot is the best utilized piece of government land in the US. About 75 WINs traditionally assemble here for Christmas and New Years.

Christmas Eve there was finger food, music and singing around the campfire. The tent is our "WINwam," an experimental games and gathering place.

One windy morning, 50 of us crowded in for our morning coffee get-together.

We all enjoyed a terrific Christmas dinner at the VFW, complete with turkeys, ham, and oodles of side dishes. The weather was 70 and sunny. The VFW is located next to the piece of land we're camped on. It's a great dancing spot, with a live band almost every day.

We hope you all had a very merry Christmas

And best wishes for a happy New Year!

Happy Holidays to all the WINs!

Happy New Year! We had a very nice Christmas and were glad that your dad spent the day with us. Hope he comes for New Year's Day too. We phoned Aunt Mimi and Uncle Clarence after our evening meal and wished them a Merry Christmas.
