Snowbirds like us head to Arizona for its warm winters, but for some reason, Mother Nature thinks that this entire continent should experience a real winter this week.
Since we’re boondocking with solar and our Honda genny isn’t really ideal for running the heater, we’re really, really cold, and testing the limits of our heartiness.
Our Wyatt Ray doesn’t seem to mind.
We arrived here after a week at the Slabs, just in time to catch the last week of the NuRVers meet-up.
Since the end of December, various members of NuRVers have taken over a small patch of dirt here at La Posa South.
The cool kids told us we missed out on a lot of the fun, like the fireside sword swallowing show, but the crew wasn’t too spent to save some for us.
Along with nightly potlucks and good eats, there were copious amounts of cocktails consumed while sharing crazy stories about life on the road.
And in-between the raucous evenings in front of the campfire, we worked hard at our creative endeavors to fund this ideal lifestyle.
Are you Nu?
NuRVers is a group specifically for RVers who break the mold.
Forget the stereotype of a crotchety, decrepit old couple cruising across America in their golden years.
We are singles, couples and families who choose to break from convention and live our lives on the road, enjoying all that this great big world has to offer.
Nobody will tell you how you “should” tow your toad or dump your load, and there’s no know-it-alls who are allowed to run the show.
The only criteria for joining is having a free spirit attitude that welcomes diversity, fun and spontaneity.
Some folks, like Trippin’ with Stanley, have just embarked on their road trip lifestyle. While others are veteran road tripping warriors who’ve been doing it for years. There’s no end to the different ways we all reached the conclusion that life on the road is just more fun!
As Jim and I head into our fourth year of this slightly unconventional lifestyle, it feels great to be connected with such a great group of people who we have so much in common with.
The Nu party is over now, and everyone’s gone their separate ways. But we’ll stay in touch in the Forums, and probably meet up again this spring, somewhere in the Texas Hill Country.
Tonight, as the mercury drops to the lowest temperatures this state has ever seen, I’ll dream of the day when the weather becomes more civilized, and the umbrella drinks will start flowing once more under big starry skies with the NuRvers crew.
