On my way to Palm Springs

2014-02-20 06.19.44
Well, here it is Thursday morning!  Bright and early 6:00am, loaded up the car and with the help of my son-in-law got all hooked up and all lights working!

 

Now on the road…I’m so excited I can’t stand it!  Stop three times at the rest area and various CVS for water and signage (see the back of the camper).

2014-02-20 09.58.09  So around Stockton, CA I finally settled down and started driving.  Hit L.A. at rush hour and didn’t get to Palm Springs till about 7:00pm.  But I arrived safe and sound and look what was already in the hotel parking lot:

Am I adding too many pictures in this blog?  Should I write more?

So I got all checked in at the Monroe Hotel and went next door to get some dinner.  On the way back I saw a fella that looked like the guy who asked me if I wanted to go in his place this year.  As it turned out, he came down too.  So I thought it must be him.  So I smiled and said “Hi Brad?”, Nope-not him.  Okay-I’ll just go to the room and watch some t.v.  Tommorrow we’ll be setting up and I’ll pick up Mike (my other half) and Joe at the airport to join in the fun.

So the next day I head to the Hilton and set up in the parking lot with all the other FABULOUS Travel Trailers!

Mona Heath really did a super job getting everyone all organized and Jim and Doug her “helpers” made sure everyone was parked correctly and had electrical hookups.

I ran around and took pictures of all that I could before the storm of people came through.

I’d show you all the pics of the trailers but don’t want this just to be pictures…I’ll just throw in some highlights since you probably are tired of the

pictures!

Okay, Well I don’t want to bore you with pictures let me know if you want to see the interiors. They were so awesome!!!  Had a great time with over 1500 people walking through.  We even got eight adults in our little tin can at one time!  The Docent and I had a little chuckle on how it kinda looked like a clown car with all of them coming out of that little thing!

Even got an award for showing!  My life is complete..
