Off of the Grid

High Desert

We have the rig parked at 2000 feet above sea level, in the High Desert of Eastern Washington. The weather is hot (around 90 degrees F) and dry (20% or less humidity), which is great for dry-fitting and dry-assembly of the new wooden parts that reside under the plastic/fiberglass composite skin.

The air is very hot and dry. I am getting a very dark suntan (despite wearing sunscreen all over). Desert dust and construction debris gets everywhere. It is as if we have a ship in a dry-dock. The sagebrush and pine smell wonderful. The sunsets are spectacular and much of the Galaxy is visible almost every night.

We could not have picked a better place to fix up our home.
