It's New Year's Eve and we are doing our usual.....nothing. Sounds good to us, though, after a busy Christmas and hectic life dealing with all of the winter issues we had back up there in Tumwater. Peace and quiet, and watching Dick Clark in Times Square will be enough for us. We can get good old Dick Clark on our satellite here in the west at the east coast time. Makes the non-celebrating celebration a lot easier on us "old folks." We did want to wish all of our readers....
Happy New Year for 2010 !!
We arrived here in Winterhaven, California yesterday afternoon after leaving Indio. We took Hwy. 86 out of Indio down to El Centro, and then picked up I-8 going east to our RV park in Winterhaven. We are 7 miles west of the town of Yuma, Arizona.
We are staying at the Pilot Knob RV Resort. This is also an ROD (free for us) park in our system. When we checked in, I did opt to pay a fee of $3.00 per day to gain us a 50 amp space. Bargain price. So, for the 6 nights we are staying here, it will cost us $18.00. This park, unlike Indian Waters in Indio, allows us a full hook-up site. They make no distinction here between Western Horizon or affiliate members.
There is a clubhouse with a large gathering hall for pot luck suppers and social events. Plus they serve some type of meal here everyday except Wednesday. That's the cooks day off.
They have the obligatory swimming pool and spa for those inclined to take a dip.
There is also a nice little library and puzzle room for guests.
They have nice grounds here. The interior roads are good, although gravel and sand so it can be dusty. But hey...it is the desert and there is bound to be dust.
This afternoon, Bruce and I took a walk for about 45 minutes out behind the RV park toward the boondockers in the desert. This area is chock full of boondockers and they all seem to have the required equipment to make their life easier. We saw most of them with the large solar panels mounted on their RV's.
