Finally, it’s time to descend on the Quartzsite RV rally and meet mega-friends! We left the Bay Area rain on day 1 with drizzle on our tail as we pulled in to Bakersfield with 3 other rigs in our caravan. Better weather on day 2 going over Tehachapi Pass, across the Mohave Desert and Colorado River, into Lake Havasu’s “London Bridge,” spending the night at Buckskin Mountain State Park in sunny Arizona. With only 60 miles to go, tomorrow we’ll get up early for some awesome sunrise pictures before descending into Quartzsite – can’t wait!
20,000+ Monarch Butterflies – WOW!!! Here at Pismo Beach in November there’s even more butterflies than tourists 🙂 They love the nice weather snuggled near oceanside Eucalyptus, Cypress and Redwood groves – don’t we all… California Travel Videos continues to learn the ropes.

Finally, we are off and ready for romance in our Fleetwood RV “Rhiannon” on our first trip. It’s celebration time for two newbies ready to taste the good life and RV Living in our recreational vehicle. So will we find romance or…?

WE’RE GOING OUT ON THE ROAD…………………..
