Six Moons

As in  ‘six months’.

It was with the full moon six months ago that I began this journey.  August 10, 2014.   Tonight the moon rises in the east while the west, north and south are bathed in pink, peach and orange sunset colors.  (Pictures just don’t show it with my ‘camera’.)

Six moons on the road….I feel grateful and blessed.  I’m near Why, AZ now on BLM land, totally boondocking and totally loving it.  Electricity and loads of hot water are nice, but I’ve had my fix now for awhile, and in this moment, nature, with stars and the full moon rising, feeling close to the earth mother….that’s all I want.

Gosh, and it’s all for free!  🙂

    Beautiful location. Just because I went and located the moon a few min ago and thought maybe a year or two of moons we will be out there too. Sleep well.

    • Hi Velda, I remember when my traveling days were a couple of years away. I thought it seemed like forever, but in retrospect the time flew by! I can’t remember if you are going to be full timing or not, but if so, it’s not too early to be preparing! And that helps the time pass.

    I know I have said this before, maybe few times… I truly enjoy reading about your adventures, and I am so happy for you …enjoying your journey, as you seem to be doing. Reading what you share with all of us…well, I just want you to know that I really appreciate that you take the time to share it all with us. I wish more of us had the guts to do what you are doing. Miss you! And be glad and thankful that you are not busy enjoying the full moon at work!

    • Hi Elsa. I don’t get tired of hearing that you are enjoying this blog, or that you are enjoying the journey. 🙂 I enjoy bringing you along!
      As far as guts go, it doesn’t seem to me like it takes very many, but motivation must be strong because it’s a big change of lifestyle. Once you start to roll (literally!), it’s one day at a time and enjoying it to the fullest…

      Oh Lordy. The full moon at work! So soon she forgets! Teehee. I actually didn’t think about that aspect last night as I watched the spectacular moon rise.

    Meandering out of our campsite at a Florida State Park, we enjoyed the beautiful spectacle of Moon and Jupiter in the evening sky last night, too. Stargazing always makes me feel like a small speck of the Universe, very connected to All.

    You are truly living the best of all worlds, with amenities when you want them and being attuned to the harmonies of the natural world when you are boondocking. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings with us.

    • You said that so perfectly Marcia. “Stargazing always makes me feel like such a small speck of the Universe, very connected to All.”
      Yes, exactly!
      Thank you for being here. I so enjoy your comments.

    I don’t post often, but please know that I certainly look forward to your updates. I hope to be on the road in about 3 yrs (with dogs) so I’m always interested to learn about your travels. These blogs are a great way to learn about the little things that go wrong or the unexpected, and how to prepare. Backing up is still my biggest fear.

    Do you have any plans of working or volunteering at a park like wheelin’ it and others? Got any specific plans for this summer? Cheers!

    • Hi Caroline. Good for you for looking and planning ahead. I don’t think it’s possible to learn too much or do too much preparation. Besides it makes the time go fast when you are pursuing your dream.
      The reason I haven’t thought much about volunteering is because of the dogs. I would need to be somewhere that would let me have both of them with me, and I’d have to be able to do the work involved with two dog escorts. I just have no desire to leave Joy and Shiloh closed up in WS or JR for hours on a regular basis. If I were to volunteer somewhere it would be at some sort of farm sanctuary/rescue, or pet rescue.

      My son is getting married in May so I’ll be in the Monterey area for awhile then. After that I’m not sure, possibly a more leisurely trip up the west coast, (more leisurely than last year when I did more traveling than site seeing), or I may head to the Calgary area in Alberta Canada. Friends Shirlee and Doug invited me up for a visit. But I have no firm plans yet.

    Still thinking about where you will go next and camps in CA? Check out these links:

    This blogger is now boondocking on BLM land near the Hole In The Wall Campground that the link above describes.

    Good Luck and Happy Anniversary!

  7. You exude warm and fuzzy. Kudos and more blessings!

    Happy Aniversery….you are doing everything right, dogs, stars, peace…keep up the good work…

    • Hi Shirlene. Nice of you to say I’m doing everything right….but in reality, I make lots of mistakes! Day in, day out, but I’m learning to forgive myself. It’s taken me long enough to learn, and is till struggle with it sometimes. It’s good to know we can keep on learning though. Even at ‘this age’. 🙂
