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.

Serendipity Along Green-Dotted Highways

From Boise to Bend, we chose the green-dotted scenic route, traveling in short daily hops of 50 miles or so, escaping the heat by camping each night at a different mountain pass. Almost always you can find acceptable camping at a mountain pass. All are given names like Eldorado, Dixie, and Ochoco summits.

How sweet to wake up in the morning to sweet peas!

Adventure wagons - the old and the new.

Start a new game, like "shoe tree." Others will play. A sign says: A bearing tree - no cherries or peaches, just a few pairs.

A female horse for sure! Check out the painted toenails. We dropped in on the 4th of July parade in Redmond, OR.

Show-stopping Clydesdales!

Wow, you can't be far away. I just left Doc in Bend and am driving to the coast. I spend the 4th of July in Folsom with the WIN's and it was hot! I'm glad I'm in the cooler environs of Oregon. Great photos!
