We're California Bound!!! ☺☺☺



Raised up this morning so excited... Our true journey this year is about to start when we roll out of the Saddle Mountain RV Park in Tonopah, Az. I know... you all thought we've already been on a GREAT journey and we have but this is the Mac Daddy of journeys starting for us... Our friends Norm & Chris arrived safely and we are all on our way. This first leg is taking us to Palm Desert, California.



On our way we saw more of the dessert



Law Enforcement in cars with no officers and closed rest areas





We saw Quartzsite (Boondockers & Rvers paradise) & Boondockers in the desert








We finally crossed the state line into CALIFORNIA









Where we went through an Inspection Station and saw wild flowers along the road








We approach Palm Desert & big mountains



Finally we arrived at Palm Desert Thousand Trails... This is probably the nicest Thousand Trails Park I have ever stayed in... We have all the Amenities that a person could want and GREAT phone, Internet & satellite...

PLUS we found two sites next to each other...








I think this is why it is called it Palm Desert here and a Roadrunner right by our site!!!



So we have arrived safely and are ready for FUN!!!






UPDATE: We had tremors from the 7.2 earthquake in Mexicalli, Mexico this afternoon around 3:30 pm. Scared Chris & I to death... Norm was taking a shower and thought we were playing a trick on him... Ralph just took it all in stride... I sure hope we feel no more of them!!!



Until Later... Have FUN, Travel Safe & Enjoy Everyday!

Hi Donna, Like I posted on Chris's blog, I'm looking forward to traveling with you through Alaska. We did it in 2006 and it was AMAZING. I know you will have so much to share with everyone.

Safe travels and enjoy the view!
Happy Easter, too.

I just read about the earthquake near San Diego....whoa!!! I remember once I experienced that in L A, and I tellya, it's not pleasant!!! And the one I 'lived through' was only 4 something on the scale. But, California!!! One of the best states in the union!!! Enjoy, enjoy.

Hi Donna! California, here you come! What a lovely park you've found. So glad Chris and hubby arrived safely!
Oh, how very scary about the earthquake. Hope it's all over now.
Take care and continue to have fun. And...you got to see a roadrunner. He was waiting for you!
Be a sweetie,
