We left Orange Grove at 7:45 AM…after picking 2 bags of oranges from the trees….arrived in Palm Springs at 1 PM, we had intended to shop at the outlets there but we were too tired & parking & maneuvering the rig was too much…so we headed to Indio at the Fantasy Springs Casino where we had heard there was overnight RV Parking…we arrived there about 3PM …not impressed, it appeared there was no security and seemed a dusty place, so we decided to push to Yuma. We made a stop in El Centro at the Costco, Tom got his scotch whiskey (half price of Canadian) We arrived in Yuma just after 8PM Yuma time(7PM our time). It was too late to get into Del Pueblo (after 8 PM) so we went down the road to the Cocopah Casino and parked there overnight. There were alot of RVS parked there and very good security. we had breakfast at the Casino and then came to Del Pueblo.
We are very happy to be here finally … lots of renewed acquaintances and looking forward to the first Happy Hour here in about half an hour…..
Totals for the trip:
1655 miles…….142.2 gals……$497.25 (100.00 less than last year)
