These are Pictures from Saturday:
California Along I-5

Our Site at Kit Fox RV Park, Patterson (You Can See How Wet It Was)

This Funky Airstream Was at Kit Fox

Sunday turned out to be a nice day although it rained off and on all Saturday night/early Sunday morning. We checked the weather when we got up and it was only 28F in Tehachapi and seeing that it is at an elevation of 4000’ we decided not to rush leaving in the hopes it would warm up as we didn’t want to hit icy roads, as it was, it was 36F when we went through about 11 a.m. and the roads were wet so it probably didn’t hurt waiting. You can see from the pictures that there was lots of snow, and windmills, on the mountains as we went through. Once we got clear of there we hit sunny skies and had a lovely day the rest of the day.

Mountains At Tehachapi

We picked up I-40 at Barstow, CA, and there was a sign for Wilmington N.C. – 2544 miles – wow, that’s a long interstate!

We drove 435 km and stopped at Needles, California for the night. We stayed at Desert View RV Resort and it was a real nice park with hedges between the sites and the price was $33/night, not bad for California. Again, the internet was poor so I didn’t get my blog posted.

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day, clear blue skies and a high of 68F, sure did like that! We had a good drive to Yuma, although it is pretty boring from Parker to Yuma and Quartzsite was pretty well dead although there are still quite a lot of trailers boondocking on the BLM lands.

Rock Formation Near Lake Havasu City

We arrived at Mountain Cactus Ranch about 2 this afternoon and are now all set up. Tomorrow we need to do some major cleaning both inside and out and go to Time Warner and get set up for internet as the park only has it at the office. We went out late this afternoon and got some groceries then went to Applebee’s for dinner – much easier than worrying about having to cook after a day on the road.

The people in the park here seem really nice, we were surprised by the number who stopped to talk and welcome us to the park while we were setting up.

After four days on the road we are both tired so it will be early to bed tonight.

And so ends a couple more great gifts of days and we look forward to another interesting day tomorrow.
