Some full-timers travel through the winter months, trekking across the southern stretch of the states or venturing across the border into Mexico (though fewer are making that journey these days).
For us, winter has been a chance to hunker down in one — or a few — spots for awhile, getting the rig cleaned and having needed maintenance done. Then, as soon as the filters are changed, tires rotated (or replaced), the rig polished to sparkling inside and out, it’s time to get it all dirty again by hitting the road.
We made our epic journey to Alaska last summer, and we have a general idea of the direction we’re headed this season, but other than one obligation in our domicile state we are on our own schedule and route. Ahhh!
And what better way to start than re-visit Pahrump for some more off-road Jeeping? The desert was blooming the last day of April, when we made this hike:

(Oh, wait… we say that everywhere….)
