Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort…about 20 miles east of Palm Springs, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 17th.
I first posted this info in December, 2010…
While working on yesterday’s Blog, I noticed that I was quite near the San Andreas Fault. I knew it was in this area somewhere nearby, but didn’t know quite where. In case you are not aware, it is the best known earthquake fault in California.
Well, a little research on the Internet and I found out it’s only a 10 minute drive or 7.5 miles distant. It’s only about 5 miles the way the crow flies..supposedly in a straight line from my current location at Thousand Trails RV Resort. It’s located in the Coachella Valley Preserve which is also a National Wildlife Preserve. It is also known as 1000 Palms Canyon.
In the first photo below, the black line indicates the San Andreas Fault in this area…
As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…
This next photo I used Google Earth to give you a different view…
Unfortunately (or better yet, fortunately), there are no gaping openings in the earth. In this photo I’m directly atop the fault looking southeast.
In this photo, I looking northwest…
You can find many websites on the internet by putting San Andreas Fault in the search box.
The following three links provide a lot of information about the fault in this, the Coachella Valley, area…
I hope you enjoyed the photos.
Recently I’ve been running blogs about my 2004 Central America trip. While here I’m intending to continue those postings while also alternating with other past blogs.
I hope you enjoyed the photos.
Yesterday was mostly sunny and 73 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 78 degrees.
Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…

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!
