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.
