Yep, The Blog Continues, blah blah…

Update… We are alive and everything is fine.  Blah, blah, blah.

Friday… We drove up to stay at Quartzsite SKP Social area on the east frontage road.  Along the way….DSC_0005 DSC_0012 DSC_0014 DSC_0019-001 DSC_0023-001 

We met the Hall’s, Pinner’s and the Sierra’s there.  DSC_0018

It was nice except for the Interstate 10 traffic shooting by at night about 100 yards away.  We have never gotten use to that. 

Saturday… Mark N. came rolling in and parked with us all.  That evening a bunch of us went and saw the New Christie Minstrels.  They should be called the OLD Christie Minstrels.  I don’t think there were many under 60 years old.  It was good entertainment.  We saw them last year here too.  Hey, $13 bucks a person and it was worth it.

Sunday….Mark and I went for a 320 mile bike ride.  We went to Slab City in California.  It was my 1st time and Mark hadn’t been in years and years.  It was worth the trip.  Very interesting is the Salvation Mountain.  The man who started it about 30 years ago has since passed but it continues on.  It’s sorta like a young hippie crowd of a dozen youngins doing/maintaining it now.  The camping area was not as bad as the stories I’ve heard of it.  I would camp anywhere within Slab City.  We stopped at the Imperial Dunes along the wayDSCN0551

then arrived at the entrance to Slab City.DSCN0554DSCN0561    DSCN0557DSCN0560  DSCN0559

No pictures of Slab City itself.  It was different and a lot of people would be scared to camp there but not me or Mark even.  It’s the same thing in a campground.  There are certain campers you would prefer not to park next too.  Anyhow that was a good ride.

Monday…… We decided to move on out to Plomosa Rd.  It’s about 10 miles north of Quartzsite off route 95 then about 2.5 miles on Plomosa Rd, hang a left and go into the desert.  We parked real close to the Elks BOF among Ed/Sandy Kruty, Art/Caroline Fennell, & Denny & Susie Orr.  Ed/Sandy brought our Polaris RZR side by side down from Congress.  Plus they got their toys.  It looks like a toy lot around here.  Art has his big toy his Medium Duty Truck.

Monday afternoon we baby sat Ed & Sandy’s dog Cody.  Our cat Rainbow and Cody reunited their friendships pretty quick. DSC_0039 DSC_0043 DSC_0044

Monday night we went to the VCR night out at Silly Al’s pizza.  Another great night with all.  This gathering of active and retired Escapees VCRs has been going on for years.

Tuesday….we shall see what we see…blah blah blah.

See ya……
