Interstellar Orchard: Haunted roads, snow and boulders

(March 23, 2018) -- Last travelogue left off with our caravan of five solos staying at a Forest Service campground in the mountains near Castaic, CA not far from LA. We did some hiking, called the cops on our loud and intoxicated neighbor, and generally stayed inside during the cold weather and got work done. Read More »

Interstellar Orchard: From the oceans to the mountains

(March 7, 2018) -- At the end of the last post, Kelly, Marshall, Michael, Joni, and I drove up the Pacific Coast Highway (hwy 1) from Santa Monica to Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, CA for a night. An expensive camping option, but one that gets us close to the ocean. Read More »

Interstellar Orchard: The future of RVing

(Feb. 5, 2018) -- Recently, I received an e-mail from a reader that brought up a topic I haven’t addressed on IO before: the future of RVing. And I thought my opinion on the subject was something worth sharing, so here it is. Read More »

Interstellar Orchard: How to make friends on the road

(Jan. 31, 2018) -- This year the Xscapers Annual Bash is set up differently than previous years. Instead of two weeks spent in Quartzsite, there’s a part 1 and part 2 to the event, with the first week being in Q, and the second week being down near Winterhaven, CA along American Girl Mine (AGM) Road – where I boondocked for a while last February with several other Xscapers solos unofficially.

Interstellar Orchard: Dancing alone

Interstellar Orchard: The ‘D’ word

(Jan. 9, 2018) -- When I was a kid, I loved winter. I grew up in Wisconsin and winter was ice skating, sledding down the hill behind our house, and hoping every time a snowstorm was predicted that school would be canceled. Read More »
