Our plans are written in chalk, so we erased the board and made some changes..

Where are we today ?
         We had a plan to leave here tomorrow morning and head to Borrego Springs California. Boon dock there for two nights then head over to Holtville  "Hot Springs" BLM and boon dock there for two nights. BUT the weather forecast is telling us, 70- 100  percent rain for those areas. 
      First rain we have seen since the ice storm back in Texas Dec 3rd 2013. Not really great camping in the desert with no sunshine and rain.
      So we did a quick check and found we could get back into Desert Pools Resort (Desert Hot Springs  California) for the 4 nights in question ($9:00 a night with full hookups), so we grabbed that. So nice to be flexible.
       Today it was cool again but we had chores to do. Few groceries, laundry, dust vacuum, dump our sewage, check tires, etc.. and of course enjoy our books.
       We have been here for a week only $10.00 a night and a very nice resort BUT, the road noise from I-10 is not really fun, so we moving away and probably never come back, been there, done that!
this is the interstate right behind us,
 lanes of 70mph traffic
our coach from the Interstate 
        We did get to relax outside for a bit and enjoy out books but kinda chilly. No problem soon time for dinner anyway. Fire up our Weber Q 100 grill our last two garlic, farmers sausage from Ontario, potato slices and zucchini slices. Added to that some steamed broccoli, a fresh bun and we had a very tasty supper.
      Thats it for now, we are now in the process of heading back east to Ontario only 48 days to get there and its a long drive, places to see along the way and hopefully warm weather too. more plans written in chalk.
       Thanks for stopping on by for a peak glad to have you here.

  3. Too bad about that road noise, but it's nice when you can just pack up and move to somewhere better.

  4. We use that chalk eraser often. I certainly would prefer not being out in the desert in the rain without sunshine too. Good choice on your part in my opinion.

  5. Isn't it nice that your home has a key that you can turn on and move when you want to?

  7. The location is certainly convenient for a short stay, but that road noise would drive me 'round the bend. Time to move on!

  9. So many RV parks seem to be located beside either highways, railway tracks or both. It is so nice to find one that has neither.

    We have always found that traveling without fixed routes and destinations gives us the flexibility we need to always find the best locations.

  12. The food looks great! The drought is just about to end in cali I think, but the storm systems are predicted to be violent. I hope you've gotten your RV checked out. Stay safe out there!
