United States exploration in our truck camper

Our United States travel is in a truck camper! We bought an Arctic Fox 990 and a Dodge Ram 3500 dual rear wheel, one-ton pickup in July, 2020 during the height of the spread of Covid-19.  The combination makes for a fantastic way to see the country.  Social distancing is a breeze, so for these two introverts, it’s a great way to travel.  We’re around people if we want to be and not when we don’t!  The US has beautiful countryside and we’re exploring as much as we can.  When you’re stuck in your own country during a global pandemic, what else are you going to do?  We decided to travel to places we’d normally skip to head abroad.  So off we go!

It’s a wind storm!

It’s a wind storm!

We weren't quite prepared for a wind storm in the truck camper so we engaged the truck camper jacks for the first time to attempt to steady the camper. We have these discussions occasionally; "Can the truck camper turn over, or flip over, in the wind?" This was our...

Area 51

Steve was in heaven as we visited this portion of the huge Area 51.  Rachel, Nevada is out in the middle of no where, with miles of open skies.  We boon docked where a local suggested and had amazing views, all to ourselves.  While we didn’t see any actual aliens, we still had a great time!
