Wind in the Desert
8:30am - Our Nite Camp must be located in a wind corridor. There are a ton of wind generators here. Scampy was not bothered much by that wind. Perhaps remaining hooked up to Little Honda stabilized Scampy?
Morning view of Nite Camp
George is still learning about backing up a trailer. Took about 10 minutes to get Scampy turned around to head out from where we are in the pic above.
The dirt road from the highway to our Nite Camp has graded in bumps. Little Honda has to move slowly over such a road to keep Scampy from shaking to pieces! Baby Boid is very much disturbed by those bad bumps, and moves very close to George. Maybe for comfort support?
9:30am - Palm Springs
After leaving Nite Camp, we drove down the bumpy dirt road and came to the highway. That’s when we saw the sign about Palm Springs. And, decided to head there.
Since we moved to Apple Valley, we had not done a Google Map exploration for cities and towns. We looked at Google Map only to see the forests. We are surprised to find Apple Valley 90 miles from Palm Springs. This camping trip has provided us with a much clearer perspective of where we are at Lone Wolf RV Park.
10:30am - Apple Notes to compose Blog
It was Breakfast at Denny’s this morning. Their pancakes are sooooo good!
While at Denny’s, we composed our Blog using Apple Notes. We have Blogged to you about that before. We are using notes because of AT&T data cost. If we composed using Blogger, we would have to be online and using expensive data. By having our Blog all ready prepared, when we go online we copy and paste and do a little formatting. Then publish! That’s it.
1pm - Water
Both George and Scampy need water. For George,
a 1-gallon bottle of purified water was easy to do.
Water for Scampy, is a bit more tricky. Using Garmin GPS, we found a nearby park. We had to scout around the park for awhile. And then we found a hose bib with water near the restroom.
We never Blogged to you about our giant hose that we bought at Home Depot. It’s extremely light weight and expands to 100 feet in length! Incredible find!
Giant hose for Scampy's water
4:30pm - Morongo Casino
We have made an Afternoon Camp at Morongo Casino. Very likely, this will become our Nite Camp as well.
Morongo has a very strong Visitors Network. When we attempted to signon, a Google warning interrupted stating that the Morongo Network was not safe. “Get back to safety”, Google advised. So, that’s what we did!
With our method of preparing our Blog offline using Apple Notes, we really do not need much online time anyway. Unless we wanted to mess around online to browse.
Elevation: 1,953 feet
PS: Where is this place?
I captured the image below on November 20, 2009. Can you guess where this place is located?
