I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

My World Tuesday - The gypsy life of a seasonal park ranger

At the end of my first summer season at Oregon Caves National Monument I gave away the cheap car to a fellow guide and hit the road for the winter...

I was looking forward to this weeks episode...but yet another cliff hanger.

I worked one winter season at Joshua Tree, (at the time), National Monument. I followed and counted Desert Tortoises and created a little report reccomending where to set up additional permanent study plots. So is Joshua Tree where you will be working this Winter/Spring?

Sounds like such an amazing way to live and travel. Sometimes I look at trailers and motorhomes and actually think about doing something like that. Great post.

Lost of people have mentioned Joshua Tree. When I lived in Southern California it was a favourite place to go star watching. It was nice to see some warm shots on this cold, windy Canadian night. - Margy
