Down the road to Pilot Knob Resort Winterhaven California and great memories....

Where are we today ?
         This morning we checked many emails and condolences for Suzie's Gramma both on our Blog and facebook, would like to thank all who commented and sent their prayers.
        By 9 am we are all secured and said good bye to our friends here at Picacho Peak and headed west to southern California.
        A great driving day and only a few sprinkles of rain. 
not too much traffic and good roads
         Along the way Suzie was on line and had a video chat with two cousins in Kitchener Ontario Canada and one from Germany. Gotta love Google + Hangouts, works amazing and is free! Sure picked up her spirits today. Want to thank Rick Doyle for his great tutoring on this program.
          Actually stopped at a rest area so the road noise would make it much easier for the chat.
On Google + Hangout
       We just kept up the pace slowly making our way to our destination.
more colorful overpasses
208 miles today
         Around 2 pm we reached our destination and checked in. Another membership park with 12 days here(maybe more) free camping with full hookups.
      Got checked in and all setup on a huge site, no sites behind us either, afternoon sunshine perfect!

couple of cinnamon apple sausage and a can of baked beans
a little sauerkraut sure hit the spot
then a nice sunset in the Imperial sand Dunes

        Today we are dealing with Grammas passing yesterday, and Suzie's father's 81st birthday yesterday as well, not a great birthday present, but at least he is healthy and doing fine.

         And today I am also remembering my father passing Dec. 20th 1996. We all have such great memories and miss them at this time of year.

          Well we are doing fine, enjoying this lifestyle as long as we can and our health allows us.
          Thanks for stopping by for a visit and hope ya'll had a great sunny warm day. If not stay cuddled up and out of the cold weather.

  1. We will be arriving in that area (Pilot Knob) about the 7th of January. But we will be boondocking outside the RV park. We just may overlap our time there.

  2. Glad to see you had a good travel day nice pic's. Have to agree that I am loving Google+ for staying in contact with my Canadian family, and Rick was a great tutor or I still might not of used it. We are leaving her December 25th for a couple of weeks so going to check ROD if Pilot Knob has a vacancy for a couple of nights maybe we can finely meet? Nice picture of Grandma, and thanks for sharing.

  3. So sorry for Suzie's (and your) loss of her Gramma. This can be a very difficult time of year as we remember our loved ones. Though I do think that they would all be pleased to see us living our lives to the fullest while we can. Love and Hugs to both of you.

  4. We've stayed at Pilot Knob many times. We're "thinking" we may head that direction after the holidays but who knows where we'll really end up. We've visited the Hot Springs several time. I sure do like their hot water tubs.

  6. What a nice picture of Suzie's grandma. It is nice to have those memories. Happy Birthday to Suzie's dad, I know what it is like to have a birthday a day after someone close has passed away. Kevin's dad passed away a day before my birthday in 2010. We are thinking of you both and your families.

  9. Please accept my belated condolences to both Suzie and you on the loss of her Gramma - that sure was a great picture of her. It's an especially tough time of year to lose anyone.

    Thanks for the shout-out but all of you guys are quick learners and didn't need much help from me.

    Pilot Knob? You're almost within hollerin' distance now!!

    1. Thanks Rick
      Yes we are plan on heading out that way in the New Year, if all goes well.
      Gotta meet up with you guys.

  10. Also accept my late condolences. It's not a fun time of the year to lose loved ones. My dad died on Christmas morning many years ago and my mom followed a few years later on Thanksgiving. I'll have good thoughts for Suzie's grandmother.

  12. It is wonderful to hear of your daily adventures, no matter what they entail. You are so blessed to be missing this freezing rain, snow and temps of Ontario. We opened up our 5th wheel last night to show our friend who was over for dinner and it just brings the desire to take it all south that much closer! This site is free with membership? We can't wait to connect with you when you are back in Ontario but I'm not rushing it, don't worry! ha ha
