Not many pics to click, so you can give your clicking finger a break.
My boondocking spot at the Bluewater Casino in Parker Arizona. In fact that whole Dirt parking lot is boondocking. I don't have many snapshots today because it's too dang hot to go running around looking for something to take a picture of. After all this is a desert, and it ain't anywhere near winter yet. But later this afternoon when it cools off a bit I'll walk around and see what I can see.
I motored into Parker, Arizona, this morning. After checking in with casino security, I was given a free seven-day boondocking pass and was told it could be extended if I felt the need. I don't think I will feel the need, but they were very kind to offer.
I went to Walmart and bought a few things before returning to the Bluewater Casino and setting up the bronco for camping. Those that pay attention to my blog will notice that I appear to be spending a fair amount of time visiting Walmarts, and those appearances are real. But if you think I'm visiting Walmart because I love close contact with the shoppers, or I really enjoy pushing those raggedy grocery carts with the one bad wheel up and down the aisles, or it's fun going in the store looking for two items and coming out with fifteen, you would be wrong.
The real reason I'm stopping at every Walmart in almost every town I come to is 1, the lack of storage space in the bronco, and 2, a tiny refrigerator that will barely hold enough food for a weekend, much less weeks.
Since I can't think of any more ways to store stuff and still keep it out of my way, the only thing left to do, especially for refrigerated stuff, is shop more often, hence my frequent visits to Walmart.
Turning the truck's back seat into a storage area was one of the best things I ever did concerning living in the bronco. Without the truck's backseat storage space, living in the bronco would be a lot more difficult.
All the RVs you see are in one of the boondocking areas. There's 4 or 5 boondocking areas here at the casino, and you may wonder why do they need such large areas for boondocking? And the answer is, a few times a year the casino hosts several big off-road races for cars, quads, and motorcycles. And the boondocking areas become the pits for the race cars, and boondocking for the hundreds of RVs the race drivers and their crews camp in.
