Day 5 – Del Pueblo RV Resort, Yuma Arizona
Sorry for the late post. We arrived at the park yesterday at around 4:00 pm local time after leaving the Orange Grove at 5:15 am. We travelled in the dark toward a beautiful sunrise on the way to Kramer Junction, where we turn south toward Victorville.
We then turn East toward Apple Valley, Lucerne Vally and and then to Yucca Valley
Some nice weather happening.
After Yucca Valley, we swing south again to Palm Springs, Indio, and then to El Centro California where we made stops at Wal-Mart and Costco.
And finally, Yuma Arizona.
Day 4 – Orange Grove RV Park, outskirts of Bakersfield California
5:30 AM start this morning! This was a long drive today(412 miles / 633 Km) not much to see for most of the drive, a few hours of fog as we passed through Sacramento & Stockton.
It’s a real treat to finally be able to leave I-5 and start heading East to Bakersfield.
And finally, the Orange Grove RV Resort. Tomorrow, YUMA.
Day 3 – Rolling Hills Casino and RV Park, Corning California.
We left Seven Feathers at 7:15 am, headed over the Siskyou Mountains…travelled through a very mixed bag of weather, rain, wind, and fog. Very grateful the temp was about 10 degrees above freezing so there was no snow falling.
We made a short stop at the “All Star Liquor Store” just as we enter California, to pick up a To Go Order for our friends in Yuma.
In the higher elevations around Mount Shasta, we ran into a bit of fog, but luckily we didn’t see any snow or ice, except what was on the ground from some previous snowfalls.
hmmm…that looks like a palm tree but where is the sun?
We pulled into Rolling Hills Casino RV park around 12:30 pm. It seems like a short day but after all the steep grades, up and down, it is a tiring drive hauling an R.V. Paul & Lisa pulled in about 1/2 hour after us….had time for a game of Pegs & Jokers before supper.
We hope for a very early start tomorrow , it’s 400 miles to Orange Grove RV in Bakersfield. We are also hoping that the Oranges are ready for picking!
Day 2 – Seven Feather RV Resort, Canyonville, Oregon.
We spent last night at Tulalip Casino Truck/RV parking lot in Marysville Washington with our friends Paul & Lisa. We were all missing Mr. Bentley, their darling Bijon dog, who passed away last month The weather was VERY WET. We had an early night, then an early start this morning at 6:00 am.
Forecast was for rain, heavy at times, they were correct, but we did hit some sunny breaks. Arrived at Seven Feathers shortly after 2:00 pm, Hot apple cider at reception on arrival. Nice to have some electricity and running water.
That’s a “traditional” Hot Apple Cider that they give when you check in. Very warm here for this time of year.

We will start our journey south tomorrow. We are taking the same route as the two previous years, following Interstate 5 to the Bakersfield California turnoff, then on to Yuma via Palm Springs. We should arrive in Yuma Arizona late afternoon on Wednesday Dec 9. The weatherman is calling for Rain all the way to California, then overcast to Bakersfield with sunshine onward to Yuma. We will try to post daily as we travel, with many updates during our stay.
