|Our home for the week.|
|Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, CA|
|Recently seeded field just east from Bakersfield.|
|Evidence of the low lying fog.|
The low lying fog did not slow us down. We were able to keep pace with the weekend traffic all without losing sight of the road. Four years ago, that was not the case in this area. We were three RV'ers, in convoy, and the road was soupy; so soupy that we had no idea what the topography looked like in the Tehachapi area. And it is a beautiful area. It was nice to see it again this year. Tehachapi, CA - Official Website - Home

|The tall, electricity generating windmills are all the evidence one needs to know that Palm Springs is quickly approaching.|
|Settled into our spot at Caliente' Springs RV Resort. Our 5th wheel is in the middle.|
In the coolest of the hot pools, we enjoyed the company of Jim; a late 70's retiree who calls this place home, these past four years. After full timing for better than 10 years, he purchased a park model at Caliente' Springs. He is one learned man. Incredibly well read, his ideas are clear and well founded. He is a breath of fresh air. He would be a far better political analyst than any who grace the TV screens we watch nowadays. We look forward to chatting Jim up again in the days ahead.
The motorcycle and truck both need a good cleaning and that will occupy the first few hours of my day, today. Yes, it is nice to be back in the land of sun, sand and heat.
Thanks for dropping in.
