You Never Know Who You Might Run Into

We took a day trip from Yuma over to Anza-Borrego State Park.  I thought I had read online that the cactus had started to bloom over there so off we went.  It was president's day weekend so there were quite a few people on the roads and in the park.  

Being fulltime rver's and traveling around we meet lots of great people along the way.  Some read this blog and some I meet on various facebook groups and if we are in the same area we try to get together.  And then there are the friends who you run into quite by happenstance, like Greg and Karen who also write a blog that you can see here.  We were on our way back to our car after visiting the visitor center when Karen recognised us.  What an amazing thing that was.  We first met Karen and Greg a year and a half ago at Abiquiu Lake in New Mexico.  It is such a blast to run into friends along the way.

Sadly Karen was taking the picture.

The flowers are almost here.

Soon, very soon.

We have finished all of our winter project on the car and rv and have left the Yuma area.  Right now we are camped along the Salton Sea and next week we'll go back over to San Diego to cat sit for my daughter.

I had a little free time last week and just so you know I don't take myself too seriously I added some color to the back of the rv.  That's my brake cable, for the Honda, hanging on the ladder.  Also that red solo cup sticker in the upper right side of the window shows that I'm a member of a facebook group for solo women travelers.

Some Interesting Things We've Seen Lately

We spent a week over in Casa Grande, AZ.  We had passed through there last Oct. and had paid for 4 nights at an rv park but it was so darn hot that we left after only one night, but the manager said to remind them of that the next time we came through and they would give us our other 3 nights. So that's what we did and we ended up staying a whole week.   After a couple of months parked out in the desert sometimes it's nice to be in a park with lots of water and electricity too.  Then it's time to vacuum and wash everything inside. 

On day while driving around the Casa Grande area we came across this building.  We could see it way off in the distance and could see that it was something to see more up close, so off we went.

It's a skydiving school.

On our way back to the Yuma area we stopped off in Bouse, AZ for friday night all you can eat fish and chips at the local cafe.  Went there last year with the boondockers group and never forgot about it.  Yummm

While driving around the countryside there's always something interesting to see, whether we're in a town or out in the desert.  Saw this truck in Yuma, the other day, with a bumper sticker from my hometown in northern California.

See you down the road.
