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.

On the Move Again

After 3 weeks at our friend's house in Santa Fe, we're on the move again. With hot weather nipping at our heels, we stay ahead of it at an average pace of 50 miles per day.

Our first stop was near Abiquiu, NM. In the distance are the colorful hills of Ghost Ranch, made world-famous by Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. An eerie phenomenon puzzled us here: The bushes were crackling as if with electricity. Close inspection revealed that the 17-year cicadas had emerged.

We stopped at Chama to see the famous narrow guage train, the Cumbres & Toltec, that goes between here and Antonito, CO.

We learned about this great spot, on the Blanco River south of Pagosa Springs, CO from Days End, a huge database of boondocking spots.

The world's largest and deepest hot mineral spring is here at Pagosa Springs, CO. At $17.25 a soak, no wonder few people were there!

Of course, there are more pictures on Flickr.
