A Slice Of Life…

from Thousand Trails RV Resort in Thousand Palms, California.

Yesterday I took my camera on my 45 minute morning walk and snapped a few photos. Here are ten which you may click upon to see enlarged views…

Lots of folks in the Christmas spirit…

Some folks bring along an extra ride…

This guy wins the award for the smallest rig…

This guy wins the award for the longest rig…I paced him off at 88 feet long! When I tow the Ford Bronco II behind our motorhome…I run 46 feet. This guy is almost double my length!!!

And finally my parking spot…

The tall Date Palm trees are not Christmas trees…but they are still nice.

Average daily high temperature this time of the year is 69 degrees and night-time lows about 46 degrees…better than most of the other areas of the country! The nice weather is the main reason we’re all here.

Here’s an interesting comment about our current times. I’ve been stopping here about the same time of year for about 10 years. The park has 445 sites and in the past only about six vacant sites might be found on any given day. This year seemed different…so as I took my normal morning walk I counted the empty spaces. I counted 61…about ten times the normal vacancy rate at this time of year. Interesting.

In other news…

I’ll be departing the park later this morning. I’ll head about 75 miles to the southeast and visit some friends at Slab City for a couple of days.
