What's Outside Your Camper Door?

If you are willing to step off the edge and give up the things that are holding you back, you can have the things you need to satisfy your soul.
Diane's quote

One of the perks to giving up a mainstream life is, we get to live in a different Paradise when we choose to. This is what's outside my camper door. This view has been brought to you by the US Forest Service near the Grand Canyon.

I've been camped with a few other campers for several days near Williams az . After a few days I was able to get out for supplies. I was stuck due to rainstorms,  I  wasn't in dire need though and could last another 5 or so days before needing water. Even at that, I have a water purification system but it did impress upon me how fragile we can be especially if we don't keep enough supplies on hand. There are over 60000 acres , you could hike 26 miles into Flagstaff without crossing a major road I was told. There are a handful of campers enjoying this pristine paradise, all free for 14 days. It draws the big rigs and class A s because many of the roads are passable unless there is a lot of rain. Even at that, there are some great parking places closer to rt 60 that you can nestle in the pines. I've met some nice peeps out here. Mostly people in the 40s on up. Interesting  talking to the full timers who gave up on life for their own reasons and live mainly in the wilderness like I do. I often wonder what their stories are but never ask.


Don't panic, this is a selfie, this is outside my camper, not yours.

Home is where I park it.

If you are coming back east this year I just wanted to let you know I have plans to spend the entire month of October at the NPS campgrounds right on the beach in the Outer Banks. I will be leaving to go back to the north sooner if the weather turns sour due to a noreaster or hurricane.

If you take a look at the weather for 10/14 it only rained .59" for the entire month with around 70-degree high daytime temps and 50's at night pretty much perfect for a tin can tourist in the full (11 hour/day) sun.

I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

So glad I found your blog. I'll be starting my van dwelling journey next summer, and am so excited. It's good to read about ladies on the road.
