Olympic National Park

From Pacific City, we headed up the coast to Ocean Shores, Washington. We passed through some epic scenery but didn’t stop as Google told us we had at least a five hour drive. The Washington portion of Highway 101 was especially curvy and bouncy. We have learned to be wary of opening cabinets after a […]

The Oregon Trail

From Zion we started our migration back to Oregon. We stayed in our first Walmart Parking lot outside of Ceder City. We had planned to stay in a great National Forrest area but the weather was pretty chilly so we opted for the Walmart which turned out to be fine. We would definitely come back […]

The Subway at Zion

On our last full day camping outside of Zion National Park, I was lucky to score a last minute permit to hike the amazing Subway. I did the non-technical bottom up route. The top down route requires repelling. The hike is only 9 miles but is definitely challenging as you have to cross back and […]

Virgin Dam Boondocking

From Lake Powell we drove a couple hours north to a boondocking spot close to Zion National Park by the Virgin River dam. Jaime questioned my sanity for taking the Bago down a slightly sketchy looking rutted dirt road to the edge of a canyon and refused to even look as I drove. We scouted […]

Lake Powell

After getting smoked out of our Grand Canyon boondocking spot, we headed North to Lake Powell. We had stayed a night in Page, AZ in 2009 on our Tango Trailer tour but hadn’t really explored the area. This time we camped at Lone Rock just across the Utah border. The Park Service lets you camp […]

The Grand Canyon

Our northward migration continued to the Grand Canyon. We found another great boondocking site on Campendium just outside the park borders. I did a hike  into the canyon on the South Kaibab trail. This is a pretty steep trail and the 7,000ft elevation at the canyon rim make for a difficult hike. Maybe a mule […]

Sedona

After Baja we started heading North as temperatures started to creep up in the desert and made plans to meet up with friends Kirk and Anya in Sedona, Arizona. We had read about a great boondocking spot outside of town on Campendium.com. Sedona and the area in general was pretty crowded as Easter approached but […]

San Felipe, Baja Mexico

We are down for two weeks of sun, sand, and fun with our Xscaper friends Denny and Veronica from RV Outlawz in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico. Really nice weather and great company. The drive down was an easy 120 miles or so from El Centro, California. Here’s a video of our waterfront site from Denny. Not […]
