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.

The other day, we went to see Horseshoe Bend with our friends. This is a lovely overlook of the Colorado River in Glen Canyon as it winds around a big rock.

Glen Canyon dam, dedicated in 1966. The town of Page did not exist until the construction of the dam began. It took 17 years for Lake Powell to fill for the first time.

A view of Lake Powell near Wahweap Marina. The water is so low that the boats can no longer get out into the lake through the area in the middle of the picture. They have to go all the way around Antelope Island to the right.

Diana went on a very exciting back country trip with Bob, Donna & George to the north side of the lake. This is a picture of Gunsight Butte.

Randy and Diana,

I've been following your blog for several months and really enjoy it.

I just had to comment on your recent picture of the two of you at Horseshoe Bend. Your smiles are priceless and made me smile too.

Thanks and take care in your travels. Bill

Thank you, Donna, for taking the picture. She and Bob left today for their rafting trip through the Grand Canyon. They should have some great pictures when they get back. Check them out in a couple weeks at
