The most important lesson we have learned over the past year is to be flexible. We cannot anticipate everything (typically the weather), and so we just have to roll with it when our plans are upended. The night before we were set to leave Leavenworth, we did our typical night-before strategizing. Since we had reservationsContinue reading “Last Minute Change of Plans, Olympia, Washington”
We finally boondocked on BLM land! I am not sure what was holding us back, but our first experience at Dugway BLM outside of Sinclair, Wyoming was absolutely delightful.

We are meeting some incredible people along the way, and some of the best people we are meeting are our hosts through Boondockers Welcome. We learned about this membership early on in our planning process and knew it would pay off big for us. We stayed with Boondockers Welcome hosts in both Vermont and NewContinue reading “Our First Boondockers Welcome Stays”
