I was given a beautiful sunset on my last night as a going away present from Ben Avery gun range
After a brief 50 mile drive I eased into Wickenburg Arizona about 10 o'clock this morning and took the only boondocking spot that was available for a vehicle of my length and girth at Box Wash. So I guess the good news is Box Wash is still open for boondocking and not a state Park, but the bad news is it's rather crowded.
Because it's more crowded than I like I probably won't stay here very long and might just cruise on into Quartzsite in the next few days. But you can never tell, it is a Sunday and sometimes even boondocking areas are more crowded on the weekends than they are during normal days so I'll have to see how things shake out next week.
It feels weird to sit here in my easy chair and not hear gunfire, it seems to quiet. It's also kind of amazing that I can get used to the almost constant gunfire at a gun range and it just becomes background noise that I don't pay any attention to until it stops. We humans are very adaptable critters, I only wish I was more adaptable around noisy generators and barking dogs.
the Box Wash boondocking area was as crowded as I've ever seen it, but at least it's still open for boondocking. that's the Arctic Fox at the far end of the picture
I know by campground standards this doesn't look very crowded but to boondocker's it's elbow to elbow.
One of the things I like about Box Wash is no matter how crowded it is, and no matter where you boondock, you always have a great view.
