I moved out to Box Wash BLM Boondocking area this morning, it's getting hot enough now that I've learned I have to do things like that before lunch time.
I only have one or two bars of Verizon but I've received a call already today so I guess it's working. But the Internet signal is not strong enough to use my phone as a hotspot so I have no Internet. I need to go into town tomorrow anyway so I will post this on my blog tomorrow morning.
There were more RVs here than I thought would be Boondocking here. There are six or eight RVs Boondocking in the big parking lot which is more than I've ever seen here in the two times I've been here in the past. I haven't checked the spots out in the desert yet to see if there full, I might walk down later after it cools off and see what's going in the more remote spots.
Listening to a Phoenix station on the radio this morning they were warning people that it's hot enough now that the rattlesnakes will be out of hibernation and to be careful where you walk. snakes don't bother me in the least in fact I like snakes, but I don't want to get bitten by a rattlesnake. I have found that sometimes they will be crawling around when it's cool just before dark, and the darkness makes it hard to see them on the ground. And despite what you may have heard, they don't always rattle. I once walked within 2 feet of a rattlesnake coiled under a bush and he never made a sound. But they're not a huge concern, and a little common sense will usually keep you out of trouble. In all the time I've spent in the desert I've only seen two rattlesnakes.
