When you get a 404 error message on every page on a website that you try, it is typically either the host (the company that has the servers on which the website is located) is down (more frequently) or the website has become scrambled (rarely) or a billing issue that has resulted in the site being taken off-line by the host (rarely).
Did you have any more "snow & ice" issues on your way to Indio? We drove home from Angel Fire, NM with no problems. I thought that we saw you west bound on I-40 around Amarillo on Dec. 28th. Anyway, it was a Newell around your vintage. Were you on I-40 on that date?
After we got out of Okc we had no issues. Im home now and already want to go back! Im guessing the Newell you saw on the 28th was one of my buddys. He left that day to go out to Indio. We didnt come home until the 2nd.
We drove out to ORA Country Club in Feb. 2007 for about a week. We loved it! It is the most beautiful RV resort that I have ever seen. Karl Blade has 2 sites on "Newell Row" and he always has a show coach or two there for sale. The climate is delightful, the resort is first class, and the scenry is gorgeous! Like you, I want to go back a.s.a.p.
We are going to Port St. Lucie ORA in February 2010. It is also very nice. But it can't compare with Indio.
Karl has two spectacular lots there. Really any lot in there is beautiful. When I was at Newell about a month ago, they were just finishing up is 2011 show coach for Indio! Wow! It was quite a piece of art! I could live in Indio 6 months out of the year. The weather there is gorgeous. In the Motorcoach Country club, I counted 20 Newells, in The Outdoor Resorts I counted 16 and in Desert sands I counted 9! I would say they have a majority of Indio.
