    A question more uncomfortable than "Where do you go to the bathroom?"

    I have two dogs with me that I would like to continue living, so I’d appreciate someone grabbing them. I also have some health issues and would appreciate someone coming to rescue my ass if I’m only unconscious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    A question more uncomfortable than "Where do you go to the bathroom?"

    I have chronic health issues and I won’t be doing this forever. I’m getting very tired and this isn’t getting easier. I’ve clocked three plus years on the road so far.... I have an app on my phone that my adult children use to follow my movements. If I don’t answer my phone or move for a few...

    Sales of new rv's decline

    It used to be, back when I had money, that three stocks let you know how the economy was doing. Harley-Davidson Caterpillar Winnebago Caterpillar being up meant construction was doing well and the other two meant that middle class families had money to spend. I do not know what you would...

    Sales of new rv's decline

    I’ve been seeing signs of an economic downturn. Way fewer people camped in the Sierras this summer, available parking spots in Yosemite. I saw the same thing in 2007. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gyms, Blythe Ca

    Be fore warned that a large prison is just outside of Blythe and a lot of the guys at the gyms are prison guards. I’ve found them to be a bit paranoid of unfamiliar people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    another crackdown in Ehrenberg

    Wow- they make it sound exactly like slab city. Was it really that bad? I camped there in 2017 and it was pretty clean. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sites to sell off my junk?

    I sold all my stuff during the community yard sale where I lived. At the end of the day I gave away what didn’t sell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How often do you use your bicycle?

    I do not use my bike for transportation, I use it for exercise. I have some health issues and swimming is my doctors first choice, the bicycle is second choice. Anyone who has camped with me can tell you I ride the bike in circles. I need to keep all my muscle groups and skeleton moving. The...

    Tentative plans - feedback & advice welcome

    Get a vehicle you can stand up in. Lots of folks start out and say their biggest problem is being stuck inside and unable to stand up. You can get stuck inside for many reasons such as weather and trying to be stealth in an area. Being able to stand up in your vehicle will greatly improve your...

    CA and NY are going to make you pay to leave them!

    I lived in California near the Oregon border. Lots of local California residents would get Oregon license plates for their cars, avoiding the California fees other residents would pay. That is what they are cracking down on. It isn’t some sinister plot, it is finding and prosecuting tax cheats...

    What would you say?? (Propane fridges)

    That is why I don’t like to leave the dogs in the travel trailer when I am not there. I worry about fire, not like a panic or anything, I’m just careful. When my propane frig broke I replaced it with an ARB electric freezer. I use almost no propane now. I think it was a good upgrade. Sent...

    Dark Sites for Stargazing in or near SoCal?

    Borrego Springs is one of those low light communities. They don’t have any bright lights at night. It is lovely for star gazing, but pretty dark to drive through town late at night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Leaving my unattended Travel Trailer in Quartzsite???

    YARC is a thread on this forum and on the Vandwellerforum. It’s the You Ain’t Right Club. The folks at YARC host a winter camp in Quartzsite at the La Posa North LTVA. It’s a friendly bunch and they welcome newbies and old pros alike. The community camp often has communal meals and campfires...

    Leaving my unattended Travel Trailer in Quartzsite???

    La Posa South hasn’t had any thievery I’ve heard of. La Posa North is close to town and had a few thefts. I’ve seen trailers left unattended for as long as a month at La Posa South. It isn’t uncommon. One neighbor caught a plane to visit a relative and asked us to keep an eye on their camp...

    Leaving my unattended Travel Trailer in Quartzsite???

    I’ve done it three years in a row. Camp with a group, you can meet them online if you don’t have a group of fellow campers already. YARC has a camp all winter long in the Quartzsite LTVA. Ask someone to keep an eye on your rig. I make several visits to my mom over the winter. I’m always camped...

    first aide

    Oh, and if you have a furry companion you will need first aid items for them as well. One of my dogs got infected anal glands and some organic canned pumpkin and some amoxicillin fixed it up. A dog I am currently camped with tore his foot pad and socks with surgical tape along with triple...
