Slight Change of Plans

We have plenty of time to get to San Diego but our funds are low so we are being very creative. We left the Cocopah Casino early in the morning and headed just a few miles to the Paradise Casinos. We signed up for the Players Card, had a good breakfast for 99 cents, got our free play $ and hit a small jackpot…off we go!

Our plan is to boondock a few days, then one at a campground, then boondock a few more and back and forth. We learned that the RV Parks in California are really highly priced so we are planning on moving around a bit while we are there to ease that burden a bit so that we can get our fuel fund filled up again to get us to North Carolina in May. We love staying at different parks anyway, so we have turned this into a review marathon while we are there.

We checked out our discount card books to get a deal so we could hook up for a night, we found one in Winterhaven, but as we have been noticing more and more, the discount was no longer valid at that park. This is going to be an entirely different article and into more depth about this common problem.

We could have chosen to stay and pay the high price as we usually but this time it was a bit different, the clerk was downright snotty, so because of her attitude we opted to move on down the road. This was of course a blessing…we went into Steely, California and found the perfect park for the same price and even though the discount was not valid, her attitude was so inviting, we chose to stay and enjoy this very nice 5 Star Resort. Be sure to check out our review on this one…Sunbeam Lake RV Resort…it was fabulous!

The drive on I-8 was interesting and a wide variety of landscapes…it went from desert to sand dunes to mountains. There were many stops for the Border Patrol to check you out as well…thank goodness we don’t look like Coyotes. The climb was challenging but even with the Jeep hooked up we made it without any problems
