A WALK IN THE CEMETERY
I took a walk this morning over to the old cemetery that's about half a mile from where I'm boondocked and took a few pictures. I shouldn't visit old cemeteries because they always make me sad but it's fascinating to me to see how people buried their friends and family long ago and often far far away from where they called home. This is especially true out West because a lot of the people that were here came from somewhere else. So that meant that a lot of the time people had few or no family members living here and the ones that were here may not have stayed very long, and moved on to the next mining town or the next farm so there would be no one left to take care of their relatives graves. So one of the things that's very noticeable is the difference in the way the graves are cared for, some graves have been there for over 100 years and they're still taken care of while others are nothing more than a depression in the dirt with no visible marker, I think those are the ones that make me the most sad.
I'm leaving here tomorrow morning and I'm thinking about going to Laughlin Nevada, I haven't been there for eight or 10 years and it used to be a great place for RVers. I've heard that they tightened up the rules on camping in the parking lots but back in the day it was normal to live in the parking lot, the casinos didn't have a problem with it but I think the town did and passed some restrictive laws. I guess I'll find out when I get there. Of course I won't get there tomorrow I'll be stopping along the way and looking for boondocking spots, there is a lot of desert between here and there so there must be some interesting spots to camp.
