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.

Pacific Crest Trail

It got hot in Merlin, Oregon (elev 900', 95 degrees), so we rerouted ourselves east on Hwy 140 to this cool mountain pass snow park (elev 5000', 79 degrees). Nights are delightfully cool. We'll stay here till the weather breaks.

Pleasant surprise! The famous Pacific Crest trail passes through here enroute from Canada to Mexico.

So we followed it a ways through a huge lava flow, with Mt. McLoughlin (9,495') in the background.

We have to put in a picture of Diana every so often so Mara can keep track of "Trailer Grandma."

Big thanks to the trail makers and trail markers. They make it hard to get lost.

A side trip to Lake of the Woods. Randy sat in an Adirondack chair, a comfortable bit of classic design that has spread nationwide.

Molly received a surprise visit from Jimminy Cricket, who urged us to always tell the truth. Diana snapped this lucky shot before he hopped away.
