Roses are red, violets are blue, no pics to click, what's a boondocker to do?
I woke up this morning to a thick fog more reminiscent of the seashore than the desert. I know things like this happen everywhere, but it just doesn't happen as often in the desert. Usually, it doesn't last as long, which is why full-timers like myself like to live in the desert during the winter, not because it never gets terrible but because it seldom happens as often and usually is over in a day or so.
And that's what makes the weather I'm dealing with now so unique; I seldom experience cloudy, rainy, foggy weather that lasts for five days in a row in the desert.
If I'd wanted to, I could have checked into an RV Park before this bad weather hit, there are plenty of them around here, and I could see last week that this front was on the way, so I had plenty of time to do something about it. But I thought it would be more fun to test my boondocking abilities... so here I am.
I went to the local Big O tire store in Wickenburg and ordered some tires for the Arctic Fox, which are there now, and will be installed Monday morning.
I don't know what I will do after I get the new tires, but I'm leaning towards going to Congress Arizona for a while. It's only about 25 miles from Box Wash, and there's some good boondocking in the area, so that sounds interesting to me at the moment.
But tomorrow morning I'm off to see some Rodeo Team Ropers do their thing at one of the local arenas. Of course I'll take pictures, I just don't know when I'll be able to put them on the Internet.
