Morning at Pichacho Peak CampgroundKeith
At first light Jake and Anne start to get restless and want to go outside. It's fine when living on land because there's pretty much always a safe and convenient place just outside the front door. Not so in a sailboat anchored in a harbor. The dogs are going to have to follow a different routine. I won't bore you with the details of the plan at this point, but suffice it to say, I have a plan.
My Own Private Magic CarpetKeith
03/18/2008, Pichacho Peak, Arizona
As things at the office have begun to wind down a bit, I have been taking more weekend RV trips with Jake and Anne. This past weekend I spent Friday night at Molino Basin on Mt. Lemmon (again) and on Saturday I went to Pichacho Peak along the road to Phoenix. Had a long hike before sunset and then settled down for the evening (as depicted in photograph above). Watched a movie on board. Into the Wild. Somebody made a comparison between that movie and my plan. I don't think so. I'm not burning money for one thing, except on maintenance and repairs for my magic carpets. On Sunday I headed up to north Phoenix to visit a kid I represent in court, then drove back to Tucson and eventually had dinner at my parent's house. Now I'm back to work for part of a week. Heading off to go skiing in Park City, Utah on Wednesday.

This is the view on an overcast morning from the top of my favorite hike on Mt. Lemmon, the trail up to the saddle from Molino Basin. You can keep going in either direction from here for miles and miles and miles.
The Bounder at the bottom and the ridge at the top.
Camping Spot at Mt. LemmonKeith
It's a bit obnoxious for just one person and two dogs to RV in a coach built for a family. I see that people are still camping in tents. Been there, done that. This is better. And with two big dogs, even the 34 foot Bounder doesn't seem too spacious. In fact, it's just right. We've all got our space and it doesn't seem cramped. I could (and very well may) live in it with two golden retrievers for months. Come to think of it, we've probably spent 50 nights in the Bounder already. Jake and Anne pretty much consider it a home.
The new moon was coming up right here just after the sun set and it was so beautiful.
The Arizona Trial is almost complete. I hike this section frequently.

I took the dogs up for an overnight RV adventure to one of my favorite camp sites at Mt. Lemmon. It's about a 1/2 hour drive from the Bounder's storage spot.
