small footprint, missing nothing

We are exploring this world in our small travel trailer and on our boat. We have a small "footprint", but enjoy "the good life" ~ good wine, good beer, artisan cheese and local foods, dog-friendly places and people-friendly places.

The Rincon Parkway ~ A “Campground” Fav!

This is the exact opposite of what we consider a campground.
In fact it is not a campground.
At all.
It is parking on the side of the road.
With noise.
Freeway noise.
Train noise.
On asphalt.
With other RVs inches away.

Why do we consider it a favorite?
The view.

The sunsets.

The beach.

Oh, and being 15 minutes from home!

La Paz to Agua Verde ~ A Sailing Flashback!

Time for a little flash from the past.
Some of our favorite Mexico cruising grounds are North of La Paz, Baja California.
Islands.
Quiet anchorages.
Beaches.
Sea life.
Geology.
Oh, and cows on the beach!

 

Hauling Our 49′ Ocean Catamaran for Bottom Paint!

Well it was time.
Actually it was time a couple of years ago…

 

When You Can’t Go Camping… When You Can’t Go Sailing…

This is what I do.

Compositing Toilet in our Rpod 177

And something a little different…
Another modification to our Rpod.
Our gray and black water tanks are now combined and we just extended our “boondockability” by days and days!

Lost Lake Resort ~ Funky But Fun!

We are including this funny little campground (which is part of a much larger trailer and mobile home “park”) in our “campground favorite” series because it was fun.
Pretty.
Different.
Way funky.
But way fun.

The Shelf Above The Bed ~ In Our Rpod 177

And for the Rpodders looking for storage options ~ we call this “The Shelf Above The Bed”!
Certainly not OUR idea ~ hundreds of Rpod owners have done this.
A great place to store lightweight items.

Solar Panel Set Up on our RPod 177

RV Parks are not for us!
We like to be off the grid.
Far, far and away from a 728′ diesel pusher.
At primitive campgrounds.
BLM land.
Out in nature.
We rarely camp at hook up sites.
But we do like to have power!

Banderas Bay Whale Show ~ A Sailing Flashback!

Twenty minutes that will be etched into our memories forever.
