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 www.lifeontheopenroad.blogspot.com

Name:

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.

The Wall Comes to Quartzsite


Today was the opening of the American Veterans' Traveling Tribute, an exhibit that pays tribute to the men and women who served in the Armed Forces. The major part of the exhibit is a 4/5 scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC.

At first I thought, "Why Quartzsite?" But a lot of the snowbirds here either fought in the War, or knew someone who died there. It is a very emotional experience to see those 58,000+ names.
