Follow the Sun.......

Have as small an RV as you can live in comfortably. Stay where you have a minimum of clothing needs, heat-a/c, and travel as short a distance as "reasonably" possible.

But the fuel is approx the same for 250 mi. in 1 day (stay longer) as 250 mi. in a month. Go to Quartzsite("Q"), AZ(G.--is for google) for Dec-Jan-Feb (maybe longer), most any where in SouthWest in spring/fall; summers in Ruidoso/Cloudcroft, NM or 14ers in CO in summers; and Mountain View, AR/Ozarks(G.) in Oct-Nov.

Then repeat.... :-)

Just stay/travel on diff. roads/locations and mostly boondock.

NM St Pk passes (G.) are $225 for 13 mo. (minus a day or two) (no hookups) for out-of-staters. Most(all?) NMSP have dumps and water. Elec for heat-a/c is $4 more per night.

Staying "off season" for 50 nights = $4.50/night. Therefore, 100 nights = $2.25/night.

"Q" has about 25-30 free music jams "scheduled"-unscheduled/week from Dec-Feb+. I don't like heat/humidity in the summer (anywhere); but Mtn. View, AR has 5-10 unscheduled music jams per day (includes "courthouse" jams) from Mar-Nov +/-. {ref: 1st para---Oct-Nov for me

Life is great & fairly inexpensive.
