Full-timing in our 24-foot 2006 Forest River Sunseeker 2200 as of June 1, 2011, I've added solar panels and a catalytic heater so that we can camp off-grid comfortably. My dog, Katie, is great company. We traveled a bit in the Western States our first year, and visited the deserts of Arizona and most of the New Mexico State Parks the next four. This year - 2016 - I'm hoping to find a park model to buy so we will have a home base, but we'll continue to travel, too. What a life! :)
Katie and I just took it easy today, we took three long walks which felt really good. Different parks offer different kinds of walks, and this park has good views and terrain for us. Just enough hills, lots of plants to look at, and Katie loves the burro piles. That's definitely a new smell for her. :)
I just paid some bills, watched some TV, played some computer games and took a nap. What a day. I love retirement and full-timing.
Some photos from today:
Our water faucet leaks, and the birds like that. Can you see the bird drinking?
The move their wings like a hummer and just hang there while they're drinking.
I had fun watching them for quite a while this afternoon.
Another drinking bird with lots of buddies nearby.
Pretty birds - almost the same red as the faucet.
Chipmunks get thirsty, too!
He can barely reach the dripping faucet.
Close up of the (I think) chipmunk?
I love the different shapes and arms on these Saguaro Cactus.
The Saguaro Cactus are all over the hills, I guess it's a cactus forest?
Another picture of The Palms.
The sunset reflecting on the lake - I can't get a good Eastern sunset photo because there's nothing there to photograph. Clear sky - it's beautiful, pinks and yellows, the colors keep changing as the sun goes down - but no clouds, no trees, nothing to show except a gorgeous colorful sky. It's much prettier on the Western side where the colors are reflecting on the lake and clouds.
From Me and My Dog, have a great Tuesday evening, everyone! :)
