Boondocking

I know some folks worry how things will go when boondocking.I can tell you it will go very well if you have the right equipment.
Here is how we do it with friends.Photos taken at our last outing boondocking at Colcord Ridge AZ.

(1) Boondock with lots of Champagne.
(2) Boondock with lots of friends, shrimp cocktail and more Champagne.
(3) Boondock with lots of Eggs Benedict for breakfast and Bloody Mary's.

See boondocking is no problem when you have the right equipment.
I hope that some time next week we will be off to a new boondocking site.

The right equipment we learned

Our first outing with our airstream. BTW, nice fancy get ups on your meal tables, mighty impressed.
Anyways, we went up to Yellowstone and we learned lots and I think I have been through the manual pretty good now.
My list of right equipment:
1) A quiet generator, thanx to the forum for pointers there.
2) New batteries. On our way home we were in 12 degree nights. Our batteries lasted 2 hours. The party we bought the trailer from must have put in brand new batteries........... Walmart brand. Methinx we can do better?
3) Raising the jack stand, can't even come in our driveway without scraping our drive. That is done already.
4) Ottomans, we sure were fighting as to who got to put our feet wherever.

So thought I would chime in. I did make cranberry, white chocolate monkey bread one morning, and even some fresh rolls another evening. Of course wine to accompany the chef as she works.

More most likely later as I get all my pictures situated.

Man - I'd love to do that one of these days, especially with folks who have desert camping down to an art. Or science. Whichever one mixes drinks better.

Maybe this year. I've joined the great unemployed and need to figure budgets out. It's very tempting.

My mother always said that I was too easily led astray...

Pat

Sure Hope your unemployment is because you retired.
I got my last job at 66 and work till I was 72 then retired, wish I had retired sooner.
Time to come West and visit us in Quartzsite for the Winter.

Ya know, a Long Term Visitation Permit(LTVA) can be purchased from the BLM for $180...good for 7 months...gives you access to dump, water, and dumpsters(and if you're brave, pit toilets)...that's $0.85 a night...can't keep our house that cheap when it's shut down for the winter, and we turn everything OFF...well, we leave the fridge on to keep things from freezing...oh, yeah, it gets that cold....the first time I looked out the kitchen window and saw -32, I went back to bed...it did get better...-20...AZ is a good place to be in the winter, and Quartzsite is a great place to boondock...just gotta find your place(there are ...uhm...several...it's a desert)...if you can park there, it's yours, and you can move if you don't like where you are...Jimmini did, and it meant I had to walk over a wash after BLOODY MARYS or drive the drive...drove more than I should have, but the first dive into the wash made me want something more substantial than jeens around me...and, yes, I will do it again...if ya haven't met Jim and Minni, yer missin' out on a great experience, and a great BLOODY MARY...m

And the answer is...?

Hey Pat,
Sometimes, it just isn't worth the worry...give the pursuit a rest, and go for the enjoyment while you can enjoy it...we didn't retire rich, but economy versus enjoyment is NO contest...go for it...mike

Mingus Mtn campground is off AZ 89A between Prescott and Jerome AZ
Prescott has much western history.In the 1870's it was the Arizona Territory Capital (twice)
Across from the couthouse on N Montezuma st is whiskey row.



OLD COURTHOUSER
Whiskey Row was the red-light district untill 1956.Now Whiskey Row only has whiskey.





First Territorial Capital and Governors Mansion.1854.Now part of Sharlot Hall Museum.

Jerome was a mining town that has been reborn as a town of artiste.
Jerome is the home to the Jerome State Historic Park.(NOW CLOSED DUE TO AZ BUDGET SITUATION)It is in the old Douglas Mansion that was the mine owners home.
