I’m now at Emerald Cove Resort with full hook-ups. Well, I finally got my hamburger and beer or should I say too much beer. To make sure, I went back the next day and had fish and chips with beer. OK, that’s enough beer. I like this place, the management is well organized and friendly making sure we old people enjoy our stay. I’ll be here until Friday, and then it’s back to boondocking in the desert.
Gosh, I sure have been lazy lately. I need to check the oil level in my Gear Vendors overdrive; I would like to do it at each engine oil change but haven’t done it yet. It isn’t hard, I just need to crawl underneath the beast and do it. I also need to change the rusted headlight adjusting screws, which might be a challenge reaching.
Tomorrow I’m taking off to Emerald Cove RV Resort with full hook-ups. They also have a bar and grill. Maybe I will finally get that hamburger and beer I’ve been craving for.
January 1st is my birthday, I’m 65. I’ve been receiving SSA checks since age 62 and now Medicare. I guess that means I’m old, I don’t feel old.
When I first started out, back in March, I was so stressed that I didn’t think I would make it past the spring of 2019. I was even thinking of getting off the road and moving into an apartment. The stress became less as time went on and as I was gaining experience. Now the stress is gone and I’m very happy with this life style. Those of you, who are too nervous to follow your dream as a vagabond, know you can do it!
There is no BLM LTVA service or permits being sold during the Federal shutdown. This doesn’t mean much to me since I go to the private business Laundromat Mall for all that and I already have the permit. There is no news of people being kicked off the land, maybe because we are self contained.
I am now at Desert Vista KOA Campground for a week with full hook-ups. For me, boondocking is easier and less stressful now that I have more experience and knowing how long supplies will last. Now, full hook-ups is a nice luxury. This park is not much more than a parking lot with hook-ups but I like it. The park is next to wide open desert land, no two daily walks are the same.
