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

My Photo

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.

Goldfield Ghost Town

I have to admit I've never stopped here before because it looked like a tourist trap that costs money. But it doesn't! At least not to walk the streets of the town. So in I went.

There were lots of my favorite things, rusty stuff, to photograph.

And a bordello, near a chapel.

With the Superstition Mountains in the background, it was a beautiful spot.

Barbara found a guy with a big bag of gold, and immediately started flirting with him!

Beautiful mountains in the background. The bordello building looks out of place with all the wood buildings. Are they original or built recently?

Actually I didn't even notice he had a bag of gold - I just thought he was cute!

Is there a technical problem with the title picture-- the left half is white?

Nope, not a technical problem...
Looks like Randy's been torn off the blog.

The Superstitions look Gorgeous! The green showing on the scree slopes probably looks especially good to a Desert Rat, Eh?? :~)
