Arrived at the RTR two days ago. This year's gathering is situated in a plum location ringed by seemingly endless desert mountains and lovely flora, including ample saguaro.
The daily seminars are always informative. Like this morning's van-dwelling gadget show-and-tell.
On the day of arrival, the GDB’s completely inadequate 5-inch ground clearance caused a problem at the entrance to the RTR campsite. I scraped the ground effects on the passenger’s side that houses the coach batteries. The noise was horrific. Fortunately, the damage was only cosmetic.
Today, while making announcements, RTR-organizer Bob asked for volunteers to excavate the entrance in order to flatten the offending barrier.
The task was accomplished in no time. Thanks everyone for pitching in!
The weather has been spectacular – just like you would order it – daytime highs in the 70’s, nighttime lows no lower than the 40’s. And the skies impress at sunrise, sunset, and deep into the dark night.
The nomads are housed in a variety of tiny homes including vans, teardrops, trailers, and motor homes.
We got a tour of a most excellent T@B teardrop. Recently retired owner Sharon is now a full-time wanderer and blogger.
As always, it’s the spirit that counts. And the spirit of the RTR is alive with its community of old and new like-minded souls.
