Cottonwood, Arizona – BLM Boondocking

Our stay at Alamo Lake was great, lots of kayaking, fishing, ATV tours and of course, sunny and warm every day, evening campfires and gorgeous sunsets. By mid-march temperatures are rising into the mid 90's in the lowlands, it's time to seek higher ground and cooler temperatures. Cottonwood, Arizona is about 2000 feet higher than Alamo Lake providing cooler temperatures, otherwise, a large generator probably 3500 watts to run the RV air conditioner or an RV resort with 30 amp service would be Read more [...]

Our Spring Trip 2015 – Hot Hot

  It’s the middle of March and we were trying to stay in the desert till the end of the month, if the snakes or heat didn’t chase us out sooner. Well as it happens we are leaving tomorrow for the Sedona, Az. area, and it wasn’t the rattle snakes. It was the heat. The daily highs are reaching 90 F - 30+C, and higher in our trailer which isn’t hot for Arizona and we could probably tolerate the heat but it takes till midnight for it to be comfortable enough for sleep. I Read more [...]
