I woke up at 4 o'clock this morning hearing voices pretty close to the Arctic Fox, and when your Boondocking that's something that will get your attention pretty quick. I peeked out the window and saw the lights from two vehicles and four or five people standing around talking. Of Course its pitch black outside so I can't see much of anything so I go back to bed.
I can't get back to sleep because vehicles are still coming into where I'm boondocked and the place is getting noisier and noisier so I just lay there until the sun comes up enough for me to see.
About 6 o'clock I go outside and there are vans and SUV's everywhere, along with many dozens of people. I asked the girl standing next my steps what was going on and she told me that there runners and their running from Wickenburg to Mesa Arizona, which is 200 miles using the back roads that they're running on, and where I'm boondocked just happens to be the end of the first leg of the race, oh lucky me. She also tells me that it's a staggered start so runners will be stopping where I'm boondocked until about 4 o'clock this afternoon.
Now I've always felt that if you want to enjoy full-timeing in an RV it really helps to be flexible and try to deal with whatever life throws at you in a positive way. So instead of opening the door and yelling " GET OFF MY LAWN", which was the first way that crossed my mind to handle the situation, I got my camera and started taking pictures and talking to people. Most of these folks were college kids from various schools around the area, and it was kind of nice to talk to people that had more to talk about than their last operation.
