A fellow part time boondocker

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

A semi-retired, widowed federal government transportation contractor, I've lived in the Hi-Desert for over 20 years. I spend a lot of time during the winter boondocking mostly in California, Arizona and Nevada.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Mainly the skill of surviving the trucking business for a few decades. As a teenager I was mentored in writing by the late Skip Webster, who among many credits wrote or produced over 50 episodes of a 70's TV program, Fantasy Island. Unfortunately my parents thought I should pursue other things. Needless to say I love art and writing.

jimdunlap's Pets

I have two dogs, a 9 year old Pekenese named Won-Bean (name of a Korean movie star, long story) and a 2 year old Shih Tzu named Gypsy, and a cat, Ginger.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Almost everywhere!

jimdunlap's Hometown

Born, raised, and lived part of my adult life in the Los Angeles area, where my trucking business still is. I also lived for a while in Queens, NY where I had a seafood delivery business. Love the Big Apple, but the desert is my home.
