With the ending of the Fiberglass rally in Quartzsite on the 15th, the last social gathering on my list for this winter is checked off. I could go anywhere from here, which is a very liberating feeling.
It’s already getting into the mid 80’s during the day so I could start heading north. I’ve heard Lake Havasu is nice and know people going that way. If I went west into California I could boondock near Joshua Tree National Park and get to see more of it than I was able to last year. Or I could go east and finally see those organ pipe cactus I’ve heard so much about.
So many options. Too many, really.
But there’s work and chores I’ve been putting off to attend these rallies, and if I head straight to a scenic location, the lure of sightseeing might prove too strong. Anyone who’s been a full-timer more than a year knows about the dangers of treating the lifestyle like a perpetual vacation. That’s a good way to run out of money.
Some of the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous people have moved to the town of Ehrenberg, just west of Quartzsite on the boarder with California. It’s not a very scenic place but that’s for the best when I have writing to do. I can also get my mail sent there and the Verizon signal is strong enough to do my taxes online.
