Our Awesome Travels
Taken In Quartzsite Arizona Dec 7th 2015

Moving down the road to Roadrunner BLM free camping, not far but fun to relocate.

Where are we today ?
       Well today was the day we need to leave La Posa West in Quartzsite our permit has expired. We need a place to stay for two nights and that's pretty easy here in this area. We can dump our sewage, fill our fresh water tank and go to the FREE areas. Yep we like free!
       And a thought was to head to Roadrunner BLM (14 day free area) about 5 miles south of here, and see if we could find Jean and Skip that we met the other day. Well we pulled into Roadrunner and drove around a bit. Finally parked our coach and headed out with the car. Now think about this thousands of acres in the desert and Rv's scattered everywhere. We do not know what their rig is other than BC plates, they have a tiny tow vehicle, and three dogs. So after about 30 minutes we were about to give up, we found them. 
       Chatted for a bit and relocated our coach so that we can visit for a bit later on in the day, we only here for two nights.
        All set up with a new home dirt, while they went shopping. We were able to enjoy a nice sunny after noon with our books then get together for a 4 o'clock "Happy hour", chat and chat for a while getting to know each other and so much to talk about as fellow bloggers and rv'ers do.
new home dirt
lots space here
excellent spot 
we have our own Saguaro Cactus here too 
Happy hour with Jean, Skip, Louie, Sophie and Jake
Suzie got her doggie fix
             While we being happy our Weber Q  cooked us up a chicken, taters, broccoli and carrots for supper. As it cooled down time for us to head home after a great afternoon enjoying the company of our new neighbours, that we invaded.
an almost great sunset tonight
supper done right on time
Yep as you know we love our chicken!
        The really great thing about the south western USA is the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land, hundreds of thousand of acres of desert to camp in either free or very cheap. No reservations and lots of open spaces always have a spot to stay.
        Anywho that was our awesome, sunshiny day, new places and new faces, sure do love this lifestyle.
        Thanks for stopping in again for a visit and if you can find us stop by in person.

  1. One thing about being in Arizona is that there are plenty of places to find those free places to park. Enjoy that sunshine!

  4. You really, really need to write a cookbook--I (Janna) consider myself a good grilling cook using my big at home Weber for roasting pork tenderloins, prime ribs, etc. but I struggle with the two burner gas grill we pack when in the motorhome--what's the secret???

    1. The Weber Q 100 has one burner and works amazing. Preheat the grill on high 15 minutes turn down to low, clean the grill, oil and spice the meat (not the grill) close the lid and cook low and slow. Check my recipe blog on the sidebar.
      If you small grill is not a Weber Q its not the same.

  5. George, love the pics but I do have a question. While in the desert camping do you guys see many snakes around your campsites? I'm all about free camping too but after all were in there wild open space. We've never camped yet in the desert its something were looking forward to for sure when we hang up this 9:00 to 5:00 bite were doing.

    1. Have never seen a snake in the last 8 years. Too cold for them in the winter.
      Hit the road sooner than later, we love it!

  6. Another interesting blog with your move and new territory. Clearly, there is plenty of space ion Arizona to appeal to boon dockers.

    We sure do like our Weber Q....and we use it often...and with great results.

  7. We used to have a 2 burner grill and it is just not the same at all as the Weber. We cooked some great dorado last night.
