Desert Hot Springs CA (Low 53 Partly Sunny High 84)

We drove recently from the dead zone, aka Castle Rock Shores RV Resort near Parker Arizona to Desert Hot Springs California, adding that state to our visited map. It has been almost 2 years since we added a state,

Here is the route we took from Goodyear to Parker and then into Desert Hot Springs.

Observations about the dead zone (will talk more about the park later and what we did while there) it was like we were camping :-)

It was not as bad as we originally thought, we adapted well, there were a couple of spaces we could walk to and sometimes get cell coverage, park had free wifi at the clubhouse so we hit that once a day. After the dead zone we then dealt with some computer issues here in Desert Hot Springs that was preventing us to access some, but not all, websites. Blogger of course was one of the sites we couldn't get to. That just got resolved so hopefully we are back in business; back traveling and back blogging.

The Desert Hot Springs area (near Palm Springs) is gorgeous. Here is a picture of the park from our back window with JJ admiring the view.

It was good to add another state, continuing our full-time adventures.

Till next time,

  1. We will be doing that route next year but the opposite direction. We will spen some time around the Hort Springs area before we head to Goodyear for spring training.

  2. Glad to hear from you again. Really hate dead zones.

  3. We're down in Indio tonight. Any time you're near Indio, look up and stop at Shields Date Gardens. They have the most wonderful date shakes, and their many kinds of dates (grown on-site) can continue your enjoyment of the place for many days. Stick around until you have finished your shakes, and if you like the taste (as we did) you can pick up some bags of their Date Crystals which allow you to (almost) reproduce them using your own ice cream in the future.

    We are off to the SKP park in Aguanga tomorrow.
