For example, I’m having a minor issue with my inverter and could easily return to the dealer in Tucson on my way back east.

This morning we had an informative seminar on stealth camping and boondocking on public lands. Our guide, Bob, is a master-boondocker. If there were a black belt for stealth camping, he'd have one.

He also has a passion for this lifestyle and one senses the joy he gets from sharing it with others.Randy read his poem about urban camping.

That seems to be how it works in this life.For those of you who are interested in seeing more of the RTR, fellow-camper and fellow-blogger NewAgeNomad posted some photos of our little community.
