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.

Help! Let Me Back in the US!

It used to be such fun to go over to Algodones, Mexico for lunch, and cheap medicine and dentists. But all that has changed. Here I am in the line to get back across the border. I guess it is about a quarter mile long, and took almost 2 hours.
This picture looks back up the hill to where the other picture was taken. The Mexicans are building shelters and benches for us, but they aren't done yet. You can see some elderly people trying to hitchhike here. One man collapsed right in front of me. Something really needs to be done.

Having passports was supposed to help, but it actually took longer if you had a passport than if you didn't. So keep those new passports at home!

Thanks to Ernie and Helen, my line-mates, for the pictures.
