We hiked up to Hatch Peak over the upper lakes, but slept at the turnout just below the pass and above Summit Lake. No traffic overnight.

Spanish Banks, Vancouver.

Undeniably the best boondocking site in town. Get it while you can. I counted at least a dozen overnighters in this lot alone, despite signs prohibiting such activities. There are several lots like this.

Police patrol intermittently, but take no action. I suspect it's grown too large and ticketing over a hundred miscreants like me would take all night.

Get it while you can. I expect a clamp-down soon. All it will take is for someone to do something stupid and the neighbours will complain. It's relatively easy to gate off most of these areas.

There are idiots everywhere, including this guy who has a wood stove inside his Chebbie.

The views are spectacular, day or night. It's an off-leash doggie park and when the tide's out, you can walk for hours on the sandbanks.

Camped in the middle of the Playa, assembling the Larry Harvey memorial. Three nights of open desert to the north and LED madness to the south....



Cheers,
Greg

You brought a kayak and board to the playa? For Tahoe?

I used to have a Lake Lahontan Yacht Club t-shirt from an early burn...

Last weekend we met some old friends (all our friends are old!) at Sugarite Canyon State Park just outside of Raton, New Mexico.
Pick your poison from rock climbing, biking, hiking, water sports, or just hanging out watching the wildlife and taking in the scenery.

Yep...The best level spot in a hundred yard radius and it took 4 wheel drive to bump over the railroad ties to get there.
The leveling blocks stayed in the van.
The campground host said at our group campsite "park anywhere" and we took her up on it!
