Those sites in the Sands are weird in that they want your RV in the middle of the site... To me that screws up parking on both sides of your rig... But like you say after a couple of weeks there I was ready to move on...

We loved the Desert Hot Sprngs area last winter and may return again this year. Check out Sams down the road with all their hot mineral baths and mineral swimming pools.

Happy Thanksgiving Howard and Linda-
I've been reading you for four straight years...I've never reached out to you until now! You're an inspiration to all of us...keep living the dream!



My mistake. I stated in my comment on your last post that Borrego Springs was East of you, but it's actually 70 miles South. I hope you get to check it out, it's quite interesting. Golf, hiking, Iron Sculptures spread all around the town off road. Enjoy...

Happy Thanksgiving Linda and Howard. We too have stayed at the Sands. When we were escorted to our spot we were able to pull through just like you did. However, when we went to leave one of the palm trees on the right jumped out and attached our motor home and bent the awning structure. At least that's the story we are sticking with. Enjoy but be careful pulling out. Also Linda, there is a great swap meet at the local community college.

Our spaces are bigger here at Jojoba - 50x70! Chuck D. says he's ready for you to play golf.

We stayed in that same park last January. Really nice people but awfully tight sites especially when there's golf carts and trucks parked directly on the street across from your site that you're trying to back into.. Loved all the friendly Canadians we met & big dog park there. Gets really windy there sometimes.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving. We are just catching up on all things related to internet as we have been in rural Missouri, far away from internet.

What type/brand of satellite do you have? Do you use satellite for internet? We are interested in the new HD receiver you are "getting" from Directv. Thanks for your assistance.
