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.

Cowboy Capital of the World

Wow! Why didn't I know about this town before?

They even have a store! I wonder how much the cowboys are?? Let's go see....

Well, no cowboys for sale, but I did find an appropriate shirt, just in case.

Wait! What's that? Two cowboys, one on a longhorn steer!

I chased him down, and he offered to let me sit on the steer, but I was too chicken.

Later at our afternoon get-together, I got to meet another cowboy from town. I talked to John for quite a while, while my friends were giggling and taking pictures. We talked about how different our lives are. He doesn't even own a car, so his world is very small, limited by how far he can ride his horse.

He offered to let me ride his horse, but I was afraid I'd make a fool of myself. I probably couldn't even get on it!

Well, I didn't kiss the cowboy, but I did kiss the horse!

"Save a horse, ride a cowboy!!"


"Beer for my horses, whiskey for my men."

Now there's where we differ. I would draw the line at kissing the horse. What a cute post!
