Love From The Boonies
Yesterday we moved onto a sweet new boondocking spot so we could hide away and bask in the romance of Valentine’s week-end with only the wide open desert and the two of us alone.
It’s been almost 20 years since I first met my love and I cannot imagine a better man to have chosen as my life partner. Being the total romantic sap that I am I built him a Valentine’s rock heart, and being the manly romantic sap that he is he found it totally touching. We’ll pass the day in classy Valentine’s boonies style with walks in the desert, afternoon cookies (home-made of course), evening cocktails and a candle-light dinner in the rig. Romance at it’s finest.
Wherever you are whether solo or with a partner, here’s hoping you too feel the love today. Happy Valentine’s Day from the boonies!

Sweet, sweet, sweet. Happy Valentines to the two of you. Sounds soooo romantic. Kim and I are in Napa, where we will retire, and I say THANK YOU GOD! With a very HAPPY heart, and also plan to have a romantic Valentines Day. This will be our 50th. Valentine, together.
Good for you! I know you were ready Else and I’m happy you both decided to make the switch. Maybe we’ll see you up there in Napa sometime.
Yes we would love to see you in Napa. Else and Kim

It’s great seeing two wonderfully happy people! Love the heart. Happy Valentines to you both!!
Wonderfully artful heart, I can’t think of a better valentine gift & it won’t take up any space in the beast, it’s so totally original. You are so very talented. By the way I thoroughly enjoyed your very useful recent boondocking guide plus all of the other helpful RV-ing advice you have posted. We just retired last week and hope to use some of the info in your guide(s) when we purchase our 1st RV later this year.
Awesome! Exciting times when you buy a rig. Hope your adventure turns out fabulous!
Happy Valentines Day to you both!!! Love the rock heart!!
Have a wonderful weekend
I love the rock idea , its all we really need you don’t need to buy into the commercial side of the holiday .
Totally agree. I’ve always avoided the commercial side of this holiday entirely.

Bear Tracks Blog says
Enjoy your day! Sounds lovely.
Very clever rock art. Alone in the boonies sounds absolutely perfect. Have a great Valentines day filled with plenty of romance 🙂
To you too Ingrid. Loved your blog post today. Just genius!
Paul and I are lucky folks – to have partners so skilled in expressing their love with whatever is available, wherever we are. Ain’t love grand?
Happy Valentine’s Day you two.
This is hands down the sweetest Valentine’s post ever. Lucky you two to have such love after 20 years. I’ve found that’s pretty rare. Cheers to you both!!
I feel like a very, very lucky girl.
A great way to spend the day, Valentine’s or not. Love the rock art.
Brian and Carolyn says
Rock on you two.
Such sweet rock heart art! Love, love, love celebrating love and life. 🙂
There is no better way to celebrate hearts day than in the boonies. Paul is so sweet with his rock art! Cheers!
Except I made the rock heart 🙂 Paul made dinner (roast lamb) so he definitely shared his love too.
Such a sweet posting!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love following you. My husband Joe and I are starting our new boondocking adventure in April. It is exciting and we are a little nervous. We have 2 pits and 2 chiwawas. Lol Rent out the house. Gave all the furniture to the kids. That was the hard part letting go of stuff. With your inspiration i know we can do it. We will have to live frugal!
Living frugally can be an enlightening challenge. You find new ways to enjoy life without all the “fluff”. Enjoy your adventure! I hope it turns out to be everything you expect and more!
Jodee Gravel says
Sounds like you two did the day right 🙂
It turned out perfectly. Even got one of those amazingly intense orange/yellow desert sunsets. Pics will be coming!
Jim and Gayle says
Just talked with Suzanne. Look forward to seeing you two soon!
Yeah! I’m excited to see you all! You’ve got quite the little village down there.
Hi guys, been following you a long time and really enjoy your posts. We plan on boondocking this March near Quartzite and I’m pretty sure I know the general area where you are now (The path line to your picture had a spoiler in it). Looking forward to your review of this Valentine’s Day spot. Keep up the good work!
Indeed, the place we’re in now will be revealed and reviewed shortly 🙂
You two rock! Hope you had a fabulously romantic Valentine’s Day! 🙂
Kevin and Kim says
