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.

Winter Wonderland

The Yuma Foothills is a unique community, where you can buy a lot and either build a house, or live in your RV. This great idea has attracted 20,000 residents, mostly retired Snowbirds.

To drive around the Foothills is an inspiration. Even though it's a very individualistic idea, the residents manage to come together for all sorts of events and activities.

Those on 55th Street get together and dazzle everyone with their rendition of "The Night Before Christmas."

Some of the houses were decorated in great detail. It seemed like every surface was covered. This house had a ferris wheel!

This was Diana's favorite.

Even their dogs get decorated!

What an amazing sight! But you know how I feel about dressing up the poor unsuspecting dog. Thank heaven you don't put Molly through that.

I agree, the dog doesn't look too happy.

Impressive light display.
