After visiting Mike & Joan at their boondock site near Quartzsite we decided to leave Salome a day early and join them.  We really enjoyed our short stay; beautiful weather, desert scenery, relaxing and so quiet.  Also a fabulous sunset and sunrise.  We may do a week or so of boondocking a little more often.

This morning we left Quartzsite and made our way to Thousand Trails Palm Springs.   The park is filled with date palm trees, I understand there used to be a date palm farm here.  The trees make it a challenge when you’re pulling a 35 foot fifth wheel, not to mention parking it in a site, but we made it.  After we got setup we went for lunch and then groceries, now we are all settled in and relaxing.  The “happy-hour” group should be arriving over the next few days.  We’re all meeting up for Thanksgiving which should be a lot of fun!

Too funny!!

I'm not sure why boondocking seems nervewracking for me. Maybe because we haven't been "out there" all that much so far.
The thought of not being contained to a park is intriguing though!
Great photos!!!

For just one night it was easy, but if we boondock longer it will definitely take a little more thought and planning. I loved being where there was so much space and Cheye didn't have to be on a leash!

Thanks!! As usual the photos just don't seem to totally capture how amazing the sunrise and sunset was.
