    Nature Lover and friends keep in touch

    NatureLover update!!!! Just got a reply to the email I sent him. He is still Van Living but with the benefit of staying at his family cabin in the mountains in Pennsylvania. He has no cell phone signal or internet connection at that location. That is why he is not posting in the forum so he...

    Dispersed camping attack

    Spacem..an that is not not true of ALL Quartzsite BLM camping areas. It only applies to The La Posa North, South, West and Tyson Wash. Those areas are not free BLM, you have to ay to camp there. The fees help cover the cost of services that are provided which I cludes a waste water dump...

    We lost a lot of ground around Flagstaff this year

    Wow they moved Quartzsite and the Black Rock Desert over to Flagstaff? Quite the feat of civil engineering 🤣

    TN makes camping on public land a felony

    Sounds more like they are trying to prevent fatal accidents from cars accidently hitting people on the sides of roadways. If someone has a blowout or is a drunk driver, distracted by cell phone use, etc, that could easily happen. It is common sense rule to keep shoulders of roads available for...

    Leaking Window

    Looks like it has plugs in the weep holes. It was designed to be used as a universal unit on the left or right side so there are 4 weep holes in yours so it can be switched in orientation. Remove only the plugs that are located on the bottom edge, but leave the plugs inserted on the top edge...

If you know the diameters of the objects you need to insert use those measurements to eleminate the unusable cupholders. On Amazon you can often post questions in the product comment section...

    Travelaround, good to hear from you and glad you are back on your own property, that is a major accomplishment! I wrote to Naturelover at his personal email address a few weeks ago but have not gotten a response. He did ask for prayers a while back as he was having major health issues that...

    compressor chest freezer/fridge

    Yes there are some side by side comparison charts on Engels versus the big name competition units. But they are a number of years old. Use your keywords and you will find it. Or just pull the data from the different companies and put it into a spreadsheet. I am posting this to reclose the...

    Dispersed camping attack

    Situation normal, for the dispersed camping areas ...every year some areas get closed to give them a rest and recovery time, sometimes they close for logging avtivities, road maintained issues, or because the budget for the supervising authority is not sufficient for monitoring them. Some years...

    Harvest host or boondockers welcome

    You don't need either one. Why pay when there is BLM, NFS and COE camping? Harvest host you are expected to do shopping with them. Boondockers Welcome you really ought to leave a gift of funds or some other item to show appreciation. Casino camping is another choice where camping is free but...

    How do you do?

    Guess this summer is not going to be a hot tourist travel year. A big part of success in Nomadic life is being adaptable to changes in travel plans. At present that means less driving around and staying at campsites longer. Unless you are wealthy this is not a year to visit all the National...

    Want to boondock this summer, 2022, and preferably near hotsprings such as Idaho.

    There are apps for hot springs locations. They will mention accessability issues such as approach by car, parking distance and such. Plus going to hot springs is very popular with the Nomad YouTube channels. So you can use YouTube as a visual backup to see places you are thinking of going to...

    Keep your vehicle doors locked

    You entirely missed the joke I was making. The 5 "remote" door locks were me and my 4 siblings. My parents were using voice control. Who needs Alexa or power door locks when you have 5 kids you can command to do all kinds of task including pushing down the door lock buttons and rolling the car...
