February 2012

February is boondock month!

Most of February the crew and I are at Darby Well Road, Ajo, Arizona.  The last week we move northward to camp near Congress, Arizona.  Both camps are on BLM land and are free.  Besides free camping, the numbers for this month are low due to stockpiled supplies.  Notable is the saving of more than half our monthly income.
