Cool Time to Go!

It has been snowing up here for the last couple of days with most of next week in the forecast as well. We are out of here!
We will be at Thousand Trails in Menifee for a couple of days and then off to Arizona.
Anyone near Parker?

We will be at Emerald Cove or Yuma Lakes. Emerald is actually in Earp, CA, yes it is named after Wyatt because he lived nearby in Vidal.
Not sure how long we will be there since it is winter and a great time to travel with the kids all in school. Too much snow to come back here until it melts!

OK, well we'll give you a call when we are on the road, and if you are still in the area we'll stop by for a few days.

Yuma may be fun as well. Algodones, MX is only about a half hour awy with great shrimp tacos and dentists. We will try to hook up with Brad and Karen this year at Senator Wash near the Yuma Proving Grounds.

Well, if you are in Yuma Lakes when we depart we'll aim for that spot. We could have a mini-rally at Senator Wash....an all solar gathering.

We should try to stay in touch. Forest and Cindy may be coming that way as well.
Tricia is interested in Ghost Towns so who knows where this will be taking us. I have completed the Howell EFI installation on the Jeep CJ7 ready so we should be towing it.

I say yes! Just when. Brad and Karen should be there near the end of the month.

PS it is still snowing up here! Almost anywhere sounds great.

We are all ready here. We shot out of Tennessee and made it here in 4 days doing 687 miles one day. The trip was 2022 miles. Arrived here a week ago. Mini rally sounds good. There are many 4 wheel places to go out here. You should check out a place called the names. You can google it. It's a few miles from here in the desert where rvers overs many years have put their family NAMES on the desert dunes made from stones. This place is about a half mile wide and two miles long. If anyone needs more info about this place (Senator Wash)you can call us or email.

Looks like 5 Newells if we can all make it. Maybe we should look at a date for this, we may even be able to get the likes of Tom out there?

if we can't come in the coach, we might still drive down to visit. btw, your perspective of hot is off a bit. march in az is still COOL. NOT HOT.

Come here in late July and see what hot really is.

Yea I know what you mean, I watch the temps here year round on my desk top.
I don't do well in the heat, we head for higher elevations in the Spring.
This year it will be about 40 miles above Vernal Utah in the Ashley National Forest.
Elevation 6000+ ft.

Late March is too late for us. When Yuma gets hot we go the other way. Yuma is great in Jan. or Feb.
I vote for during or just after Quartzsite? Others should be in the area by then and who knows, could be a nice gathering.

PS Come on Tom, we want to see your new "camper".
