We stayed in the comfort and safety of the state park for two nights while Troy recovered from his stomach virus. Then we hitched up and relocated 5 miles down the road to what looked like a random desert field. This was going to be our first long term (3 nights) experience with boondocking or dry camping as some people call it. It means that you are self contained with water, electricity, heat, food, bathrooms, etc. So for us, it was a lesson in conservation.
Another side effect of boondocking was that our limited amount of fresh water required us to reset the bar on how often it was appropriate to shower. Daily? Not out here. Every other day? Maybe. But who's counting?
Breathe. Reflect. Enjoy. Finally.
