My new boondocking spot at La Posa North LTVA. There's a beautifully designed and well executed fire ring here already that someone put a lot of thought and effort into. I almost never make a campfire, mostly because I don't see myself as camping. I didn't make campfires when I lived in a house that didn't move so why should I make campfires now just because I live in a house that has wheels. But by the number of fire rings around here I would say my opinion is definitely in the minority.
Despite it being Friday the 13th I decided to throw caution to the winds and move from my boondocking location on Plomosa road to the Quartzsite Long Term Visitor Area [ LTVA ] La Posa North. I had planned on leaving Plomosa road earlier but it's been raining so much I didn't want to have to deal with any flooded arroyos when I moved to the LTVA so I've been putting it off.
I need to dump my tanks and take on some water so I signed up for the two weeks for $40 boondocking deal at La Posa North. Since the Big Show is long gone, and there's very few vendors around, La Posa North has plenty of room so nobody has to be anywhere near each other unless they want to and I definitely don't want to. I figure this will give me two weeks to see how the Coronavirus shakes out and decide where I want to go next based on that.
I think I've stayed at the LTVA's twice both times for the two weeks. I've never done the $180 seasonal deal which is a good deal if you like to stay in one spot that long, or like to move around to the eight different ones in Arizona and California. I've always wanted more freedom to decide where I want to go week to week and month to month than that deal offers me but for a lot of folks it's perfect.
The little dry wash that ran right next to my boondocking spot on Plomosa road, is not so dry anymore, it's about 10 feet wide and running really fast.
Plomosa road curves off towards the mountains leaving behind ominous clouds and a handful of boondocker's.
A wet dreary day on Plomosa road, the kind of day when I'm glad I'm living in a 30 foot trailer and not in a van. But once I start driving down the road I'll wish I was in a van .
