A Somewhat Unique View…

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.


Today’s subject… A somewhat unique view of my current location at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Thousand Palms, California…courtesy of Google Earth.


The below image is seen from about a 45 degree angle looking North. The highway in front of the park is Interstate Highway 10. Also unique is the fact this image was taken June 23, 2010…when you do not want to be here. Temps in the summertime reach 120 degrees! So…at this time of the year the park is actually closed. The trailers you see are rentals which remain in place all year. The entrance to the park is shown by an X. My approximate location is shown by the arrow. The pool area is easily seen. The park has 445 sites and at this time of year is about full. Not easily seen in this image are the about 1000 Palm Date trees, all 50-60 feet tall.


You may click on the image to see a larger view…


This park is one of the most popular in the Thousand Trails system. I usually stop here for three weeks in early December and two weeks in late February.



I hope you enjoyed the photo!

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 72 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 65 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!
