Moab to San Diego

We had two RV meet-ups in one weekend.

One was in Moab and one was near San Diego. So we left one early and arrived at the other late.


Xscapers Moab Convergence ~ Three Winnebago B Class Vans Parked Together

At the Xscapers Moab Convergence we ended up parking near a Paseo and a Revel. It was the WinnieB section of the runway (the convergence took place on an old airport runway). 🙂


Winnebago Travato Meet-Up @ Agua Caliente County Park near Julian, CA

We left Moab early and headed to San Diego, stopping for the night at a Walmart in Richfield, UT.

12 Travatos + their amazing owners + hot springs in the desert + no cell reception = one fantastic time!

Moab in March

Moab in March is much nicer than Moab in May! Last year we visited Moab in May and it was a bit warm (hot), especially for boondocking. The weather is lovely this week, sunny and warm in the day with cooler sleeping temps at night!


We spent our first night at OK RV Park. After several days of boondocking we wanted some hook-ups and a long hot shower! This campground is on Passport America and a great deal at the PA rate. It is a well-maintained basic RV park with really clean bathrooms and good WiFi!


From there we spent some time boondocking on some great BLM and state trust land. We found the best cell reception at Klondike Bluff Road. Of course, cell reception varied greatly depending on location on Klondike Bluff Road or BLM 142. Some great views, too! Speaking of great views, we also enjoyed Willow Springs Trail. We found cell reception to be a bit more challenging there, plus it was more crowded.


And last, but certainly not least…we are enjoying a night at Portal RV Resort.  We stayed here last year and are back again (we wrote a review on Campendium last year…it is even better this year!). Great place to get ready for some more boondocking! Tomorrow we’ll be attending Xscapers Moab Area Convergence! Seeing old friends and meeting new ones!


Favorite breakfast in Moab: Sweet Cravings ~ Organic coffee, locally sourced produce, baked goods from scratch…it is all good! They have lunch, too.

Boondocking Near Cortez, Colorado

In between Cortez and Mancos Colorado resides this boondocking gem. With a simple name and great views, County Road 34.  There are 12 sites. We found cell reception was better in the lower number sites. At first we parked in site 9, which is a pull-through and had some awesome views. However, the cell reception there was not enough to work.  We moved to site 3 and had much better reception.


Long Beach Peninsula


Travato on Long Beach ~ Great way to spend a beach afternoon!

We enjoyed the Long Beach Peninsula last weekend! And, yes, it was sunny the whole time!

Highlights (besides being able to use Travato on the beach as our “beach house” one afternoon)…

Where we stayed: Long Beach RV and Camping Resort

What we saw: Cape Disappointment State Park ~ which is NOT a disappointment!

Where we ate: Salt Hotel and Pub ~ So good we went back the next day!


Fidalgo Island

We are saying goodbye to Fidalgo Island today. We have enjoyed using Anacortes as a home base to explore the San Juan Islands and Salish Sea area of the Pacific Northwest. We had also rented a beach front home over the holidays to host our family and friends. These pictures are of our last sunset and sunrises the last two days. We will miss this view! We are very thankful for the time we had here!




Lopez Island

This past weekend we explored Lopez Island. In the past month we have traveled to three of the San Juan Islands…Orcas, San Juan, and now Lopez. We enjoyed them all and would return to any of them. However, Lopez really stands out! Some of the nicest beaches we have seen in the area! Especially if you enjoy beach combing as much as we do…agates, shells, and sea glass!!

Since it is winter, Spencer Spit State Park was closed. We enjoyed Agate Beach County Park, Upright Channel State Park, and Odlin County Park. Odlin Park has some waterfront RV parking, too!
