Gypsy Spirit - I'm right there with you. I'm 65 and making my maiden voyage on Jan 9 from Albuquerque to the RTR. I can't drive the whole 8+ hrs from here so I'm leaving around noon on the 9th (after therapy LOL) and I'm a little nervous about it all. I waited until late in the season to get things started so I haven't been able to "sleep" in the van as yet. Put a thermometer on the bed in the van last night; when I got up at my usual 430 and ck'd it was 20 deg! Wayyyy to cold for me so I'll have my first sleepover between Abq and Flagstaff I guess altho it'll probably be cold there as well, hmmm well it is what it is ... I'm looking forward to getting there as I've been planning, thinking, visioning this for a few years now. Look forward to meeting!

RV-hopeful - I've been fixing up an old travel trailer and haven't slept in it yet either! I'm nervous to leave the comfort and security of my home. I've never towed before and I'm nervous about that as well. But the excitement and anticipation of the RTR keeps moving me forward.

I'll be boondocking mostly. I'm using an Olympian Wave 3 heater. I also have a mr Buddy heater as back up.

I'm in Silver City New Mexico. Too bad you're leaving so late, we could caravan together! I'll be leaving on the 2nd and traveling at a leisurely pace. I want to get there on the 9th.
See you there!

I'm in the Phoenix area. I've been delayed by a couple of days, hoping to be there on Wednesday or Thursday. Had an issue with the floor of the trailer from some earlier water damage. Am replacing the floor rather than risk falling through it, and that requires taking most everything out. That and emptying the house just took it out of me. I need a day of down time before I repack the trailer.

Confetti, I'm happy to PM you my address if you want to park here before heading out Ehrenberg/Quartzsite/Parker and other points west.

All you single women have this. Once you get out here for a few days or a few weeks you will find older women who have been doing this for years, before Bob's site was here to walk them through and help them network.

Hey neighbor! I'll be at the Purple Gypsy Spirit rig tonight...they're having a sacred fire starting at 6PM, everyone welcome. You can't miss the rig, as you enter La Posa South they are just past the Contact Station on the right. 

I'll PM you.

It's a rig that came and parked near us. They were drumming last night. I threw rocks but they didn't quit for awhile. They are communing with the earth or some woo woo thing. It's not appreciated by their neighbors.

Me too!  6 days and counting for my departure.  Having work done on the van today and then I can start packing it and organizing it.  Still haven't slept in it as it's just too darned cold at night but I'll have to on the road.  Nothing makes it work better than having to make it work!  chuckle ...
