We’re already back in civilization, but before I leave our boondocking dreams behind I thought I’d do a quick little post on some of the most useful items we own for camping in the wilds.
A little history first though…we discovered boondocking in our very first year, but didn’t really do any of it in [...]
I left you hanging in the last post with the horror of an RV Halloween gathering right around the corner. Ooooooooo….
It all started with the ominous convergence of not just two, but three young & nutty RV couples right here in the Alabama Hills. Watsons Wander crept out of their BLM campground and [...]
We’re back in one of my favorite places…tucked into a private boondocking spot in the zany rocks of the Alabama Hills. I’ve blogged about this area many times before and it’s a go-to stop for us everytime we drive 395. I call it our “putzing” spot ‘coz that’s mostly what we do when we’re [...]
A gorgeously stark boondocking area 6 miles north of Bishop, CA off Hwy 395 in the East Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Location: Casa Diablo Road ~6 miles north of Bishop, CA. The area is officially referred to as the Volcanic Tablelands.
Coordinates: Approx. 37.419867,-118.411945 (start of Casa Diablo Road). Link to map location HERE. Link to info on [...]
We’re winding down to our last few days here in the Bishop boonies. I’ve been battling computer issues which means lots of time wasted cursing at my machine and trying to debug nonsensical error messages. The short of the long of it is that it looks like my hard drive is dying and there’s no [...]
Following last week’s freezing stay in Mammoth Lakes we escaped to lower altitudes and much (much) warmer weather in Bishop, CA. Thanks to the pre-scouting efforts of Watson’s Wonder (talk about fabulous RV friends, eh?) we were able to score an outstanding and very private boondocking spot in the Volcanic Tablelands. This ancient [...]
A very large, open BLM area on the East side of Hwy 395 just South of Mammoth Lakes, CA with hidden free hot springs to boot! Best suited to smaller campers (Class C, trailers, vans) however.
Location: Hot Creek Hatchery Road, Benton Crossing Road (sometimes locally called “Green Church Road”) & Whitmore Tubs Road are all [...]
So, the past few days we’ve been back in one of our favorite areas of 395, the high mountains and thin air of Mammoth Lakes. This is a spot we’ve visited many times before, yet we keep finding new and cool things to do here. We’ve already hiked many trails, explored geological craziness and watched [...]
We’re in the banana belt and the natives are restless…or rather the Scandinavian nomad travelling through this sunny beach-town is taking rather a lot of photos & needs to blog more often! We’re in travel-mode again and it’s an energizing time. I always seem to have inertia to get moving once we’ve settled in a [...]
We’re coming to the end of yet another fabulous summer on the Oregon Coast. This place has so much to offer -> uninterrupted miles of 100% public (and dog-friendly) beaches, cute coastal towns and consistently cool summer temps. We LOVE the coast and we LOVE the State Parks, but coming here in the summer can [...]
