I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 139 miles from Acton to Palm Desert, California. Another stressful and tiring drive with lots of heavy traffic, idiot drivers and really bad cracked and broken road beds badly in need of repair, especially on Interstate Highway 10.

Crossing on the narrow roads across the high desert requires strong concentration…






After crossing Mountain Top Pass at 4,804 feet of elevation I began the steep decline into the Los Angeles Basin. Part of it is a steep decline on Interstate Highways 15/215/210/10…






I finally arrived at Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort about 20 miles east of Palm Springs. Sunny and 94.2 degrees with only 2% humidity. A little to hot for my liking…






The usual dinette window view photo…






Here’s a Google Earth view of the 397 site park with my location marked by the X…




It has 805 tall date trees and is set on 25 acres. You can read about this place by clicking this link…


I’ll depart here later this morning. Next stop is my mysterious destination location… an oasis in the desert, which is a mere 56.9 miles away!


Here’s another clue… It’s also 62.9 miles from the nearest Costco.



Be sure to see tomorrow’s blog entry. Lot’s of adventure and laughter ahead!  🙂


I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is sunny and 80 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!

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!
