Don Quixote Heaven…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort at Palm Desert, California. Mary remains at home and I expecting her to rejoin me in mid-January

Remember Don Quixote? He was the Man From La Mancha…a knight-errant who set off into the world to do battle with windmills.

Back in 2011, Mary and I visited Don Quixote heaven about 20 miles east of my present camping site . It’s the San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm. It consists of more than 4,000 electrical-generating windmills and is located in North Palm Springs, California. Mary has a real interest in energy-efficient devices and really appreciated seeing these guys up close and personal. Normally they’re atop some distant mountain. While we were there, the wind was at about a constant 50 miles per hour!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 67 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 64 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
