A lot of full-time RVers hit Arizona in the winter. Some stay at the over-priced, sardine-like resorts, but many opt to boondock for free out in the desert on BLM land. Everything has to be hauled in or out – there are no pit toilets, water spigots, or trash containers. I was expecting the place to look like a garbage dump, but I was pleasantly surprised as there was no litter anywhere. Folk park off the dirt roads a few hundred yards apart and pretty much keep to themselves.

We did a little bit of gem hunting, but as we put near zero effort in, we didn’t get anything out.
