Plans For the Rest of 2017

August 29, 2017 | 33

Time for another one of my ‘semi-regular’ updates on my plans for this fall and winter, as several people have asked. I’ll keep this short and sweet so you all can get caught up and then back to enjoying these last few days of summer. As always, my plans are written in jello and subject…

Backpacking Trip Prep

July 21, 2017 | 16

The mad planning from early in the week transitioned to mad packing a couple days ago, and by the time you read this on Friday, Julie and I will be in the car and driving up to Grand Portage, MN where we’ll spend the night at a hotel and then catch the ferry out to…

International Trip Prep

June 26, 2017 | 18

After the Minocqua trip with my parents last week, I got into Bertha and drove two hours south on Friday to Madison, WI, where I went to college. Saturday morning I ran (well, jogged really – I’m not a runner) a 5k fun run with my best friend Julie, and I’m staying with her until…

Scenes Around Camp

May 2, 2017 | 27

Today’s one of those days when the words are slow coming. I’m still in the Moab area due to snow in the mountains. So, here’s a few more pictures from around camp. Spring may be slow in coming to the Rockies, but it’s certainly arrived here. I’m still enjoying the company of Kelly and Marshall.…

Quick Announcement

February 9, 2017 | 11

Public Service Announcement: I’m going to be tent camping in Mexico from Friday through Sunday and will be out of touch during that time, although I may be able to put a picture up occasionally on social media by utilizing others’ internet. So don’t worry if you don’t hear from me for a couple days.…

RV Views, 2016 (part 2)

February 3, 2017 | 23

I started a tradition a while back of taking pictures through Cas’ windows at the various places I camped to show what my home and office views are like. Up through 2015, these pictures totaled no more than maybe 12 a year, because much of my year was spent parked for months at a time…

Quiet Days at Sawtooth

May 20, 2016 | 41

Monday, May 16 (continued) I had mixed emotions about coming back to Sawtooth Canyon Campground. When I started boondocking in January, I’d decided somewhat arbitrarily that I didn’t want to visit the same camp twice in the same year. There are so many great places to see, and to me one of the points of…

Mt. Madonna County Park, CA

May 10, 2016 | 55

Saturday, May 7 My time at Park Delta Bay is up and early in the afternoon I make the two and a half hour drive to Mt. Madonna County Park, part of the Santa Clara park system south of San Jose. At $40 a night it isn’t cheap, but it’s no more expensive than Delta…

Taking A Break

May 6, 2016 | 38

The short of the matter is things didn’t work out with with the rescue dog. She’s a good dog, the problem was mine. I feel really awful about the whole situation, and I need a break from the internet for a while to heal. I won’t be responding to comments on this post and will…
