We were traveling west on Route 10 and headed towards Joshua Tree National Park.  We turned up the road towards the park and decided to wait for the morning to enter.  We found a clean camping site on BLM land and just relaxed.  After dinner the sunset capped another beautiful day of being on the road in out truck camper!

We visited White Sands National Monument on our March 2020 vacation.  My picture was taken on the main road right outside a parking area.

I was delivering an RV to the dealership in Reno.  As I was walking back to my truck I realized the flag blowing behind it.  I just kinda stood there for a minute to enjoy it.  Definitely one of my favorites.

Here’s just another Arizona sunset in the desert.  We were on our yearly trip snowbirding all over southern Arizona.  I was riding my 900RZR in the desert with friends from Phoenix.  We are so spoiled being able to park or camp on BLM land for free in the most beautiful country in the world.  Three years ago we spent a total of $33 to camp in the three months.  The $33 was because we were at a Lance camper rally for three days, but we could dump and take on water so that $33 was worth it.

I’ve always had an interest in the big ranches of Texas and their histories.  On our return trip this February from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, we had the opportunity to route through Guthrie, Texas to visit the legendary Four Sixes Ranch.  It was established in 1900 by Captain Burk Burnett and encompasses 350,000 acres.  Legend has it that the ranch was won in a card game with a hand of four sixes and thus the 6666 ranch brand was started.
