Goosenecks State Park

From Moab we headed South towards Valley of The Gods. We had originally planned to boondock down a dirt road but Jaime’s iPhone failed to direct us correctly and my GPS POI had us going up the wrong direction. Seeing signs for Goosenecks State Park, I made a gametime decision to check it out. For […]

Moab

We first visited Moab in 2009 in our travel trailer. Moab is a mecca for hiking, mountain biking, and offroad adventuring with two amazing National Parks (Arches and Canyonlands).  Our friends Denny and Veronica from RV Outlawz posted some pretty great pictures of their stay there and with the usual fall dampness setting in, we decided […]

Virgin Dam Boondocking

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 […]
