We continue to return to this campground because we are in …

Quartzsite Arizona

  Quartzsite offers a variety of RV parks and boondocking areas where you could try a different area every time you visited and never stay at the same place twice (well, almost). The boondocking areas have both short term and long term visitation. Two of the BLM areas, Plomosa Rd and Hi Jolly, offer free camping for up to 14 …

We enjoy boondocking off of Rockhouse Trail and this winter we found the area to be the least crowded we have seen since much of the area was closed off 2 years ago. Yay!   We like to hike the 10 miles (round …

Those Young Guys Halloween 2017

We are back at McDowell Mountain where I had my bike fall last year around this same time. I guess I was riding too aggressively and went over the bumps and sailed over the handle bars into the cactus and landed (actually skidded) onto my shoulder and ribs. No broken bones but lots of scratches and bruises. This year my …
