Usually folks gather to celebrate the Christmas with their immediate families, however, we celebrated a little differently in 2017. We decided to spend some quiet time at Joshua Tree National Park and to take in the beauty of this National Park’s thousands of Joshua Trees, Cholla garden, Desert Lavenders and Ocotillos. But, we didn’t end up alone…
When I’m on a mission to find a solution, I’ll literally drive myself to craziness. And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past TWO YEARS! I’m talking about making French Press coffee in our RV while boondocking without sacrificing robust flavor for lots of water water to clean it.
Since the Boondocking Bug bit us in January 2017, we’ve grown to love the lifestyle more and more. There’s nothing like it; setting up our RV in the middle of the Arizona desert amongst the prickly giants or in front of the red dirt canyons and mountains as the backdrop.
Making coffee sounds simple, right? You turn on your Keurig, put the little pod or K-Cup into the holder, push down the mechanism, put your cup under and push the button. VOILA! Hot cup of coffee right at your fingertips!
But no…that’s not how we do it. Well, that’s not how we do it ‘now’. Four years after starting our RV adventures, we’ve been through a slew of different methods of making our daily coffee rations.
In the past few weeks, we’ve connected with Battle Born Batteries to form a partnership through a social media collaboration. We are excited to take on this relationship with this amazing company. We will be utilizing our blog and social media venues to share our experiences and feedback to not only, Battle Born Batteries but also nomadic and boondocking RVers, Campers and the boating community who are seeking greater energy storage options.
Since we’ve been boondocking periodically for over a year now, we’ve become more appreciative and better stewards of the natural surroundings, land, properties where we boondock. We try to remember that our journey and destinations aren’t just about us. Continue reading “Camping and Boondocking Etiquette”
We’ve figured out how to replenish our water by using our water bladder when we’re boondocking however, we still have one looming stinking issue. We don’t particularly want to pack everything up and give up our great boon docking space just to go empty our black tank and gray tank. So, we came up with a solution on how to get rid of our CRAP.
