Wickenburg Boondocking

February 16, 2013  |  Arizona

Yesterday after work, we decided to get a jump on our drive to Vegas and we drove an hour and a half north to a boondocking site called “Box Wash.” There are a lot of RV’s here, but they’re pretty spread out. Verizon is extended but somehow I’m using it for internet. AT&T shows 1 bar of 4G but I couldn’t get online with it.

Anyway, it’s beautiful here, though there are a LOT of Hanging Cholla cactus, so Curtis instantly got prickers in his paws and we got them in our ankles.

Dinner: Finally digging into the Avacado Tamales from the Anza Borrego farmers market.

  1. So cute to see you peeking out the door! Looks like a great local except for stickers in paws and ankles…ouch!!! Beauty comes with a price there );

  2. A great photo that Airstream, Inc. I’m sure would like to see. Says lot’s about the happiness and freedom of what their product provides.

  3. Everything you eat sounds great!

  4. I think this is the first time I realized your door is off your bedroom…is that right or is that the kitchen?

    • The back door goes to the dining/living/kitchen area, while the bedroom is up front at the back of the tow vehicle: Mary and I have the same 27’FB model as Leigh and Brian. I’ve always thought ‘tho, that it would be cool to have a 2nd door into the bedroom . . . Airstream, are you listening?

  5. This place looks nice. Another good boondocking find!
