Valley of Fire State Park
Valley of Fire is the state's oldest State Park. We've driven by several times, and driven through once, but this is the first time that we've stayed at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. It's popular as a day trip from Las Vegas but also has camping avai...

Rolling the Dice
We've been trying to balance historical weather averages. Wanted to stick around for Mother's Day but I wanted to avoid 100+ degree weather as much as possible. We've only had a few days of hot weather so it looks like that roll of the dice is working. Our ...

Finally!!
Years ago, we switched to a pair of 6 volt golf cart batteries instead of the smaller stock 12 volt battery for the low voltage system in the trailer. That decision was right for us and the way we use our rig. The down side was that it left room for only on...

BJ Thanks Him
I figured out that one of the features of the new truck was lacking. We always haul a couple jerry cans of additional water when we're boondocking for any length of time, but the tie-down rings in the truck bed are too low to retain the jerry cans on rough ...

North of 1000
Long time readers of this blog know that my grandson introduced me to geocaching during the summer of 2015. By August of that year, I started placing a few geocaches. I quickly figured out that I really enjoyed putting out caches that were not typical. Most...
