BLM boondocking is our favorite way to RV. It’s hard to beat camping for free on wide open expanses of wilderness. However, to get the full effect of a National Park you should camp inside. So, although Joshua Tree was probably full, we loaded up the RV and went into the National Park in search of an open site!

    I’m still binge watching your videos. I finally finally finally found a video that you had that had music that was excellent. I love your videos and don’t want to miss any of the words that you say or but I did want to figure a way to get rid of this music. I enjoy the music. As well as everything else

    What a nice couple you two make. Sitting together on the large boulder, sitting together side by side at the dinner table. Little kisses The interaction with all your pets is heart warming. I was a horseshoer for over 47 years and saw many folks who should not have had animals. Your Love for your animals shows everytime you scratch an ear or let a cat crawl on your shoulder or play Sweety. Mostly the affection comes through in the way all your animals respond to you. From your Lop Ear Rabbits to all the others. It warms my heart to see animals loved and cared for properly.

    Hi Guys, If you can find your way to the Alabama Hills area just west of Lone Pine, CA, you'll be blown away by the rocks and surrounding areas. Many Western movies were filmed there and it is as magnificent in it's own way as the rock formations and terrain as JTNP. This is a free camping area with first come first serve. Love your videos.

    We were at the Cottonwood campground last week. It was in the high 20s. So beautiful, but cold.

    According to recreation.gov: Reservations are taken from February 1, 2018 through May 27, 2018. Sites may be available on a first come – first served basis outside the reservation season.

    We've been going to Joshua Tree National Park past two years during Thanksgiving week. Only available sites are in the Cottonwood Camp to the south. Very difficult to find a available site to the north during that week.

    The last time I was at Skull Rock was 1966 🙂 Yoly and I have been traveling 10,000 miles a year for the last 8 years and have camped and explored every state but ND and AK … so I can guarantee you that you have a treat in store for you 🙂

    Sorry for your troubles. We have also had very bad luck with recreation.gov. They are horrible. I wish the Parks would take the reservation services in house or get a new vendor. Not to mention, the extra fees you pay for crappy service at best.

    We were there at Christmas – hmmmm not sure how I feel about the reservation system, as I didn’t write down all of the spots that would fit our Rpod… I think I will do that tonight while I can remember which sites will work. Glad you were able to stay – it’s really one of my all time favs!!

    wow, I feel for you rv'ing shoudn't be this complicated. It seems there could have been a better way to way to switch over to reserve sites. But that would have required actually work on someones part. Atleast you were lucky and found a spot. Nice videos tho..

    Just wondering, have you started collecting any souvenirs from your travels. Some people collect magnets, others pencils, some tshirts, postcards, etc. We started collecting the souvenir pennies from those $.51 cent penny press machines. They are small so don't take a lot of space but are nice reminders of where we have been. My wife includes them in each roadtrip scrapbook.

    Great video as always. Of all the National Parks we have been too, we never made it there. Have to put it on our radar for a future road trip.

    Recreation. Gov has been wishy washy in the past for us too.. I don't care for making reservations with an "off site" process… Glad you found a place.. 😁

    Nice to see people from Indiana getting out of the State and exploring our great nation. Maybe if more did what you're doing there wouldn't be such an opioid and suicide problem in Indiana. (my second gf's son killed himself yesterday). Get out and enjoy your life!

    Uh oh I’m just starting your video, I hope you got there early enough. It’s first come first serve I believe. But the north park is amazing! Oh yay! I’m writing as I watch and I. Glad you’re going up to the north park. The rock formations are beautiful. And it will snow there occasionally.
