Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
Where are we Today ?
|The is the area we are leaving|
|today's journey 83 miles|
|the Salton Sea in the distance|
|can you see the camper?|
The a little further we see a typical desert subdivision surrounded by block walls with the standard pink stuccoed walls and red tile roofs.
Now all refreshed on the road thru more desert towards Brawley.
|fields of hay bales|
|bus with trailer toilets|
|fields of sheep|
|Holtvile has a new sign|
|now thru town about 6 miles to our destination|
Now as we turn onto the road for our destination a sign tells us the bridge is out "Road Closed" So here we pulled over to decide what to do next and a fellow rv'er in a jeep pulled up behind us. He just happened to be from southern Ontario as well and spends the winters here in his RV. Tells us that we can get across the bridge, he just came out about an hour ago. So we carry on to find that while he was gone cement barricades have been erected and it is for sure closed.
|yep its closed|
|dirt road beside the canal|
|going and going until the tiny bridge.|
No to the tiny narrow wooden bridge and we crept across all 22,000 lbs of us to the other side.
|can we make it !|
|not a very wide road|
We made it to the camphost here all covered in dust by we are here. Registered and paid our $40. fee for two weeks of camping. Love this Hot Springs BLM land. This permit is good for many BLM lands in southern California and Arizona and gives us access to garbage disposal and some areas have dump stations and water filling stations as well. Here we have awesome Hot Springs!
|yep lotsa dust|
|only the dust is scratched|
|load up the truck and head into town|
|Don and Ailene's warning sign|
|Sun is setting|
Now that the sun had gone down I fired up the barbie to grill a couple of chicken breasts and heat up a can of Bushes baked beans for a quick tasty supper.
