Am interested locally ...

Hi Ray:

Welcome back, glad you reconsidered and to decided to hang around. I'm in Denver and would join you on some rockdocking trips next year. I'm interested in visiting more of our remote and wonderful wild west. My 1964 19' Globe Trotter just had a new axle put underneath this summer, so she's ready to rock 'n roll in the backcountry. Freshly winterized, she's in sleep mode for a while ... but a few of us plan on greeting the New Year in Rocky Mt. National Park. We had that scheduled last year, but then got snowed out. If the roads are somewhat clear and the snow not too high, we'll try some New Year's Eve winter camping this year. You might consider joining us for some, ... ummm, ... "snowdocking".

Keep posting and educating me on how to rockdock, and hopefully I'll join you to apply these newly learned skills in 2008.

Best regards,

OK, what's with the SNOW in AZ? Hey, I'm from the land of Canucks. WE get the snow. AZ isn't supposed to get snow. Or that's what we are led to believe. That it's all desert heat and cactus and craters and warm warm warm.

Snowdocking is too tough for me

We mothballed the AS the beginning of November, after a wonderful two weeks in the mountains of central New Mexico. Once the snow flies, which can be in July in Colorado, we are not to be found north of Albuquerque, NM camping. Keystone is our destination for the winter, if, they get some natural snow this season. We hope.

Our first trip usually begins in late March and to New Mexico. As the winter's grip recedes from the Rockies to the north, we venture into Utah, then Wyoming when that state is known to introduce Spring with just a hurricane head wind and no, or little snow...

I look forward to next year's traveling season and a few neighbors to make things interesting.
