A Look Around Thousand Trails RV Resort – Palm Desert, California

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.
My RVing lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’ll depart here December 21st.


My current location is about 10 miles east of Palm Springs, California. I’ve been stopping here for almost 20 years. I thought I’d show you a little about this place. I took these photos in 2010.


There’s a real nice pool for water volleyball…












and a spa…







A large horseshoes court…







Pickleball is halfway between tennis and ping-pong…







An exercise room…







A family lodge where meals are served…







A billiards room…







And a library where you can trade books or checkout videos…







and the Recreation Lounge where such activities as craft sales, RV seminars (I’ve given several presentations about mt 16,000+ mile, 343 day RV trip to Panama here), manager’s meetings with campground residents, church services, cookie decorating, candy bar bingo, potluck meals, line dancing lessons, Texas Hold’em tournaments, big screen travelogues, card playing, puzzle doing, musical jam sessions, reading, a wifi signal for computer users, Friday night at the movies and Saturday Night dances…





And then you have all of the recreational activities to be found in the Coachella Valley/Palm Springs area. Whew!




I hope you enjoyed the photos!

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 76 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 76 degrees.

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

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of California. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


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…


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!
