G and I stopped off here on our way down to Arizona. I needed to get some work done so G headed out the next morning for Tuscan while I stayed behind with the RV and Kobuk. I needed a remote location with decent cell reception and sun…this place had both! I had a great time here and highly suggest it to anyone passing through. Just remember, like mentioned in the video, you will be hardpressed to find many supplies nearby.
Exploring this nearly abandoned area was really fun! I love checking out new places to camp in our RV. Once I get the RV setup I get ready to change the oil in the generator before the snow comes in. This is important because it was going to get very cold overnight and I REALLY didn’t want to have our pipes burst.
Our RV fridge has been acting up so I contacted thenorcoldguy.com and he mentioned cleaning the burner. I used 91% rubbing alcohol and hoped it did the trick. Then, after leaving the Walmart, we headed over to a rest area to get some work done and figure out where we would head next. We still had no idea if we wanted to head North West through Idaho or Montana, time will tell. Then, late at night, we get a quick dinner before pushing forward onto the small town/truck stop called Little America.
In the morning G goes over our latest eating habits. Since we started this diet I have felt fantastic! Then, we leave our awesome boondocking spot to head North towards Colorado Springs to meet up with one of my old friends. Along the way we passed the worst RV/Car accident I have ever seen. The rig was literally blown apart with gear and pieces thrown everywhere. The truck was caved in on the passenger side and looks as though they would have been ok as long as they had their seatbelts on. Be safe this spring everyone! You think it cannot happen to you but you take one corner too sharp and that is it! We then spend some time with my friend exploring the local area of Colorado Springs.
We leave Santa Fe early in the morning and head North towards Colorado. We find a free boondocking spot at Maxell Refuge and I get to test out our new Weboost RV4G Cell Phone Booster.
We wake up early at our truck stop boondocking location and hit the road North towards Montana. We travel through some amazing countryside to get to a closed boondocking spot. I must have missed it on the site or it was not listed…either one stunk! So, we jump online and I find another boondocking spot along the water so we went to investigate.
Finding boondocking spots near Bend, Oregon proved to be more difficult than anticipated. Nothing was too close to town while others had mixed reviews on safety. We settled for this quiet and secluded location 20 minutes from town and loved it!
We start our morning boondocking in a Walmart Parking lot. After eating some breakfast we hit the road towards Graham, Texas. We shot an awesome container home that is mostly purchased by hunters with remote property. Then, after the shoot we search and find Hubbard Creek Reservoir for boondocking.
