Description

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.

That looks like quite the adventure. I'm glad you are happy with your new "vacation" home. :)

May it treat you well, and take you on many beautiful journeys!

I really love this Gaelyn. We used to have a Ford F259 with a camper like this on it but when I came back to SA I sold it and really miss it now. Seems like you had a great trip and I know you are going to be very happy with your camper. :)

Sorry, should be F250. :)

I am happy for you and your new camper. I used to do the same when visiting the desert....drive down some BLM road and find a nice place to pull over and enjoy the night sky with the warmth of a camp fire. Funny, Orion and the Big Dipper are some of my favourites to observe too as well as the seven sisters.

Is your white flower some kind of star thistle. I have a few arizona plant guides. If I find the species in it, I will post the answer then. Good Evening Gaelyn.

Gaelyn,

Try looking up Stevia Pincushion (Chaenactis stevioides) for the white un - named flower. I remember now having seen them throughout the Majove and in Arizona. Beautiful.

Ah,Gaelyn, what a lovely post. Thank you for taking us on the trip with you, I cannot imagine how blissful it must have been to feel all alone in that desert with just the sounds of the wind [and rattle of a distant snake, yikes]

Louise said...

It DOESN'T get much better than that!

Looks like you ended up having a great trip and taking some nice wildflower pictures. I looked up the pretty white ones before reading the comments and came up with the same species as Natural Moments. My book calls it Esteve's Pincushion.

Looks like you got a great deal followed by an even better night in the desert. We are getting more sunshine now, but could use some of your warm temps. Today it is about 35 degrees and will go up to maybe a little over 40. But that's OK with me. - Margy

Howdee Gaelyn,
Just catching up on your blog..
How cool that you have this truck camper.
I have thought that it would be kinda fun to have a van or mini camper to pull behind our Motorhome..to use for places that we cant get the Motorhome to...and also use it as a guest house.
Congratulations

Have fun...

That looks like the perfect home for a geogypsy!

Susie of Arabia said...

How utterly cool! What a great deal you got - you're such a good bargain hunter! I love this time of year when the desert is in bloom. Love all your photos, especially the spectacular sunset, the flowers and the one with the shadow. What fun you always have!

RuthieJ said...

What a great camper--good for you Gaelyn!

Quiet Paths said...

I loved this post. Such a mix of the excitement of acquiring the new camper plus the lovely wild flowers in the desert. More please! I can't believe the deal you got with a working shower (OK you HAVE to tinker with something, or it wouldn't be right). Wonderful camping and congrats!

Amanda said...

You did good! We are looking for a camper for our truck. The new ones are very pricey so we are looking for a good used one. Congrats!!

The Good Life in Virginia said...

now your cooking!
so happy you were able to find a good deal on a camper shell.

take care.

As a truck camper person myself, congrats on your "new" camper. I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of it, and the water system working.
