Borrego Springs

On Tuesday (12/28) we left Quartzsite for  the desert  near Borrego Springs, CA…but we made a little addition before we left…solar panels!  While boondocking were using our generator, battery bank and after market inverter for power, which worked but not very well. Knowing we are going to be doing a lot more boondocking we decided to go solar, so now we have a fabulous system and it’s working out great!  Since we are out boondocking again it’s really great.  :o)

This area is not as gravelly as Quartzsite so finding a spot to park takes a little more looking.  We are much closer to the mountains here, it’s pretty desert country.    The weather hasn’t been real nice, Wednesday night we had a wind storm that rattled the trailer all night.  It’s also cooled way down…all the way to 32 last night.  Still, looking at the temperatures they are having back home, I’m not going to complain.

Our friends Mike and Joan arrived yesterday.  It’s fun to see them again and as they have camped here many times they know their way around…always nice to have someone’s brain to pick when in a new area!

Happy New Year to you all !!

Nice photo of the rainbow. My wife loves computers and "stitching" photos together for one big shot. Works well. We have been to Borrego Springs and noticed the RVs out in the ATV areas. They love to circle up and ride those bikes in the sand. Do some hikes in Borrego SP, there are lots of them. Happy New Year! Mike of Moorpark

I read in a Good Sam magazine that Solar Panels installed on an RV are 30% tax deductable. FYI
