It’s our Dispersed Camping Debut! It’s next step in our growth in off grid camping skills. We’re in the Alabama Hills BLM east of Lone Pine, California. It’s our first Bureau of Land Management (BLM Lands) experience. According to at least one T@B owner who’s done a lot of dispersed camping, we’re finally officially “boondocking”. Our site is not far off the road and even with that we’re glad we were pulling with an F-150! There are others camping nearby but not in direct line of sight so it still feels pretty private. With solar panels deployed and plenty of sunshine, a full freshwater tank, and seven gallons of drinking water, we’re set for a few days of relaxation or exploration or whatever tickles our fancy! Big thanks to Nathan at the Eastern Sierra Visitor Center for pointing us in the direction of his favorite area off of Movie Drive and encouraging us to make the step!

    That looks awesome!
    So happy for you to be enjoying the immensely great out doors!

      It might be our all time favorite campsite. That said, our time with you was definitely one of the high points of our trip.

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
