“I have a question for you and others. If you folks are so crazy about boon docking, why does it seem so many of you are looking for property” says Judy.
“interesting question that Judy asked..can't wait to hear the answer!.” says Doug and Sue
“I’ve been wondering the same thing Judy but was afraid to ask, so thanks for jumping in the ‘Bear Pit’ and saving me from doing so!” says Rick
OK, I am speaking only for myself and Michael. We owned property near Benson at one time in a development called Dragoon Mountain Ranch, 40 acres. We sold that property after deciding home owners associations weren’t for us. As we have traveled around Arizona through the years the thought of owning property has always been with us, I think that is just the way we are, we see some spot that is beautiful and think, “gosh it would be nice to own property there.”
Part of the fun for us is in the looking, I (Janna) am able to occupy myself by sewing, quilting and reading. Michael has a harder time occupying himself when in the motorhome—thus the perceived need to own property. Michael loves a project and a piece of property with buildings needing built is a project we both would love to tackle.
But……..we both spent some sleepless hours last night and some discussion today—do we need another piece of property, do we need another house and both came up with the answer, NO!!! We can enjoy all the beauty the southwest has to offer from the comfort of our extremely comfortable motorhome, soon to be more comfortable with the addition of solar panels. Maybe we need to get out and sight see more, maybe we can’t sit in one spot for months on end as we did in Bouse—we will have to try and find activities to keep both of us busy while enjoying the southwest.
OK, enough of that question. This afternoon we were invited to Ray and Jeanie’s for late lunch early dinner. Do you ever meet people with whom you develop an instant rapport—Jeanie and Ray are those people. We spent one of the most enjoyable afternoons ever spent today—getting to see their beautiful place, eating Jeanie and Ray’s cooking and drinking some fine wine! And I got to see Jeanie’s quilting. A perfect day, absolutely perfect. Jeanie has a special way with animals and introduced Emmi to their dogs Pearce and Gleeson so that everything was just right. We met the wandering donkeys and the chickens.
And on the way home were treated to an awesome sunset!
