MEETING OTHER BLOGGERS

So if you’ve been following along at all you know that I met JEAN & SKIP while stopped in Overton, NV on my way South this year.

WELL !  I haven’t been able to get rid of them since !!!  Surprised smileWinking smileWinking smile

Here is their set-up boondocking in Borrego Springs and I’m right behind them.  Pretty cosy huh !

This is my set-up right behind them….

Last year I met TOM & DIANNE while in Quartzsite with that Escapee crowd.  Didn’t get to see much of them though because that was during the time I was sick and therefore spent most of my time inside my rig.

Turns out they are boondocking here also so we’ve visited several times already.  Great Folks !!

They are hosting a camp fire tomorrow night and invited Jean, Skip and myself over.

In my last post I mentioned some “famous” Bloggers boondocking not too far from where we are.  Coming back in from Town the other day we see that a new rig had pulled in not far from where we were.

Check out that solar !!!

Turns out it’s none other than NINA & PAUL (and of course Polly).  I have been following their Blog for several years now and was thrilled to finally meet them in person !!

These Folks are unique in that they are YOUNG – LOL – and didn’t wait until they got OLD (like the rest of us) before they started their full-time RV journey.

Nina’s Blog is very popular (with almost 1,600 Followers) due to her wonderful writing style and is always full of great tips and information pertaining to living in an RV – and in particular boondocking.

I was particularly amused – and quite surprised – observing Bennie and Polly interacting.  Since Bennie has gotten older he is now very afraid of larger dogs.

Well he wasn’t afraid of Polly !  As we chatted the two dogs walked all around the campsite with Bennie following Polly wherever she went.  This is very unusual for my little guy.  There were several points when they were nose to nose but I wasn’t fast enough with the camera.

Ahhhh, Another beautiful Arizona sunset…

  1. You are clearly in the midst of boon docking social scene. Great fun to meet up with friends and make new ones too.

  2. I'll bet Bennie wouldn't be afraid of our Pheebs. Pheebs makes friends with all dogs wherever she goes. Big or small. Isn't Borrego Springs & Anza-Borrego just the greatest place. Had we not had a Jeep starting problem we would have stayed longer a few weeks ago but hope to return in late February or early March.

  3. It's great that you're trying new places. You'll have to tell us all about Borrego Springs. We haven't been there.

  6. Well, that's very cool! I read Nina's blog all the time, love it! So cute about the dogs. Bennie looks awestruck, or maybe he's in love? Really cute. I love the look on his face, looking up at Polly. :)

  7. Well, we are doing just fine over the mountain from you, but sure do miss the wide-open space and views of the BS desert. We miss you and our little "neighborhood" there! Was a great time! But, since it's partly your fault :) getting us more fired up about adding solar, we HAD to leave and get on with it! While parked here at friends' Tom is cutting and filing the edges of his bracket pieces, drilling the holes, etc. Thinks he may pull it all together when we get to Yuma? You may have to help!!! And we are loving the LED lighting changes! So, take care, keep on having fun and we'll see you in Yuma! D & T
