Those desert winds kicked up again last night while we were dry-camping at the Casino in Cabazon, California. Before going to bed we pulled in the slide on the windy side and then in the wee hours we woke up to hear the winds gusting harder, so we pulled in the bedroom slide as well. This is one of the main reasons we aren't particularly fond of desert dwelling for long periods of time. We enjoy the desert for a bit but then want to move on. We still slept well, so no big deal.
We left this morning around 8:30 and drove the short distance east to the Flying J for a fuel stop and then breakfast at the McDonald's next door. It was already above 70 degrees. Whee...now we're talking! We've finally found some warm weather, after a cold couple of months.
We had made reservations for 2 nights in Ehrenberg, Arizona at the Colorado River Oasis RV Resort, a Western Horizons park. We pulled in and parked the RV. As soon as we walked into the office to check in, Bruce spyed a blog posting they had featured on the wall. It was MINE! Who knew? We had stayed at this membership park in January and after leaving I did a blog post on my review of this park. It had garnered the attention of the Western Horizon corporate office and they printed it out and sent it along to the Colorado River Oasis to be posted. After we saw it on the wall, I said to the lady behind the counter..."hey, that's us". I was quite surprised. She immediately ran to get Kathy (manager?) to see that we were out there checking in again. Kathy and 2 young men came out with big smiles. We talked for a bit and Kathy told us how pleased they were with my review and very surprised that I had blogged about it. I told her that a lot of Bloggers do that and that they also read other people's reviews. If you want to read that review click here because I won't be posting a second review since we were here such a short time ago.
I was very surprised to see that blog post displayed. I know that all of our posts are open for viewing by anyone who Googles our subject matter or whatever...but when it comes to my attention specifically, I'm still blown away by it all. You really never do know who is reading your posts.
I received a comment today from Sue and Doug about our Toad. They also write a great blog and I encourage you to head on over and give it a look. Anyway, they asked about our towed vehicle. We tow a Ford Explorer 4 x 4, all 4 wheels down on the ground...no tow dolly for us. Sue and Doug, I did a post on our choice of vehicle, and how we tow it, last year in November. Click Here to read about the Neutral Tow device we had installed to enable us to tow this Explorer (the 3rd one we've owned and towed). We have towed this car from Washington to Alaska, from Washington to Nova Scotia, and from Washington to Miami, Florida and back without problems. If you have further questions that the post reference does not explain, just let me know and I'll try to give a better explanation. Thanks for reading my blog, and for making comments. Much appreciated.
We will be here at the Colorado River Oasis RV Resort for 2 nights, leaving on Monday. We'll be buzzing right on past Phoenix and Tucson and landing in Benson, Arizona for Monday night. We have dinner arrangements with fellow bloggers Jerry and Suzy for Monday evening. Check out Jerry's blog, too, as he is a gifted writer. It will be great to meet them. We are also hoping to meet Marlin, Paul and Mary, and Cindy and Walker in Texas if possible. Busy life this RVing!
Until next time.....so long for now!
