But... knowin' who's tellin' this story... I'd sure not go makin' any hefty bets on that.
Fact is... Arizona just might could be the best "spot" in the country for boondockers. I use the maps published by each National forest. They show where NF roads turn off the black top and go back in. With a decent set of those, a person should be able to keep legal with the 14 day limit "stuff" and still not spend one red cent on "Parking Fees" the whole dang winter! Just move 25 miles every two weeks and you're golden!
Once we get past the family visits and the Colorado Christmas run... I'm schemin' to make just that effort. That should take some of the strain off our budget... as well as our tuckered out Ol' Rig! ... though... with that much time, settin' in the sun... that big Red, Yamaha Raider is likely to be gettin' a lot of exercise.
We are burning propane a lil' quicker than the budget needs us to. A quick moving front rustled through at least the North end of Arizona the last day or two... with the temps last night dipping below 20... Don't know where Mark an' Bobbie are at, in their quest for some warm... but I'm thinkin' they may need to get south of Sedona to find it! :o)

A really good thing 'bout this past week for me is that I finally, got my disreputable butt back to work on my Next Writing Project. Yup... started out this week with only about 2500 words of my next literary masterpiece put down, and hadn't worked on it in a few months...
Well... the past three days... that file's gotten a lot thicker... The story has swelled up over 14,000 words... and a few new twists popped up that even, I, didn't see coming! After having that conversation with Rex Thanksgiving day, something he said must have poked my writing parts... 'cause I've been squeezin' the juice out of the inverter to keep this laptop hummin' ever since! :o) Thanks Rex!
I think more people will like my upcoming story than my ebook, "A Matter of Honor". Honor, being set in 1875, and a regular Louis La'Mour kind of Western has a fairly narrow niche of readers... This next one, that for now we'll just call "Cocaine"... is current time tale... Quite a bit "grittier"... and I guess you'd call it an Action/Suspense... still a lot of the "West" in it... but that west is struggling along, trying to survive as it gets drug into the Modern world... having to deal with not only the West... but.. the East too! ... it's a fun story to write... so many more bits and pieces... Suh-Wheet! :o)
Keep goin' like this and it'll be a done deal some time after new years... so... I guess I better go take my mid day walk... fire up the coffee pot... and get back to Tap Tap Tappin' on the key board...
gotta get her/him/them into and out of... more Trouble! :o)
Boondocking and Story Spinning... somewhere in the West
