On The Move

(click on pics to enlarge)
Today we pulled up stakes and moved on down the road. Just after 10:00 a.m. we pulled out of our spot at Ridgeview RV Resort in Bullhead City with a destination of Quartzite Az. This will be our first true test of boon docking/dry camping in the desert. We are located a couple of miles south of Quartzsite in the La Posa South LTVA. (long term visitor area)

Entrance into LaPosa South

We had an uneventful trip here with mostly clear blue skies and temps in the high 60's. The scenery is still amazing us as we climbed, turned and descended through the 145 mile adventure to get here. Our friend George, from Our Awesome Travels, met us at the gate and escorted us back to where they are set up along with Melinda and Gerry who are also new to coming south for the winter.

After setting up, we all gathered at George and Suzie's for happy hour and caught up with what each of us has been doing since last we met. Before you knew, time had flown and it was cooling down and starting to get dark. We bid our goodbyes for the night and headed back to our site to get supper on the go. After supper and dishes, Pat, Clemson and I settled in for the night with a little TV, some reading and writing this post.

Beautiful Sunset
If you have been following along with Pat's post, she has been keeping you up to date on our days at Bullhead City. There is one thing that she hasn't written about. It's my job to write about this one, because it is something that I did and is a touchy subject to some, especially to some of my family. NO, I didn't break any laws. I went and got a tattoo, not my first but my second. Since getting my first one about six years ago, I have wanted to get another, and lets be clear, I have no plans to cover my body in tattoos. As it should be, they need to have a special meaning to you. There have been several ideas but none that really stayed with me. Down here in the south west, in came to me, so after doing some research, I found the shop and artist that I wanted to go to and wasn't disappointed in the results. See the picture below.

New Tattoo
Now you are up to date, stay tune as we explore the area and discover more of this beautiful desert here in Arizona. Thanks for following along, until the next time, take care and be safe.
Love you Dad.


  1. Great seeing you guys again glad that we can get together again. And sure glad you are enjoying the south west.
    Love the Tattoo.

    1. It is great getting together with you guys too and meeting new friends also. It is so great to see the south west for real after only seeing it in your pics on your blog. Thanks for all your help as we start our full time adventure.

  2. Your ink is so much nicer in real life! Right down to the Road Runner, beep beep!

  3. Yes we are not heading out to the LTVA or BLM until the New Year. This is partly so that I can finish setting up our Solar System so we can better survive being Off The Grid. If you are bored Drive north up 95 about two miles from La Posa South on the left side (west) of the road is Quail Run RV Park. We are on site #15, Give us a call 248-205-6712.

    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
