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.

Beaverton Extra

Al steered us to the Beaverton Farmers Market. He did not steer us wrong. Here the accent is on homegrown, natural, organic, wholesome fruits, veggies, and flowers.

We saw things I didn't know existed: lemon cucumbers, "heritage" tomatoes that really taste like tomatoes. Spent a terrific half day with Al and Sally, mingling with wholesome and organic people.

Very near the Elks parking lot, we discovered exotic animals on our doorstep--two alpacas! Molly really enjoyed rubbing noses with them.

Yay for heirloom tomatoes! We have been enjoying fresh local organic ones as well.

As always I love reading your blog. Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy your travels vicariously.

Finally, a desk. And a couch. Ah, life if good.

Vine ripened tomatoes. There is nothing like the flavor. This is the time of the year that I search for those farmers markets where ever I happen to be.
