Now that you have discovered the advantage of using Google Earth and online topographical maps in combination with your GPS receiver, expand your field explorations by adding some searches for geocaches. If you decided to explore Clair Camp and the Radcliff Mine featured the past two weeks, log onto www.Geocaching.com and find what other adventures await you. By entering the coordinates of the camp or the mine on the Geocaching website, you will find that the "Hotel California, Panamints" geocache exists nearby. Geocaching adds another activity to enjoy during your RVing adventures. You will never know where they will lead you or what you will find.
By the way, don't forget the carrots to feed the burros. It's part of the adventure!
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
