Well looks like driving back to the coast was a mistake….
The Spring breaks here are staggered – they start March 1 and end April 30 – the campgrounds are all full. We entered a lottery, but our name wasn’t chosen. In fact, we couldn’t get a site until the middle of April and even then you would be jumping sites every day and no availability on the weekends. I am talking for 300km.
We wondered around aimlessly without a home for a day and a half and for those of you that know us – we do not like crowds or should I say -at least not around us - so we had a quick look at our one of our favorite surf spots and the bodies lined up on the beach and we jumped back in our van- which was the last thing we wanted to do after just spending 2 full days driving here.We headed out without a plan. We stopped by a horse show to see if we could stay there as we saw trailers in the parking lot , but you had to be part of the show in order to stay – thought about buying a horse - but didn’t know where we would keep itJ
Tonight we find ourselves in the desert – Joshua Tree – the campground is full – and we are on free forest land –where there are no rules & no reservations required…..much more our speed.
We have no immediate plan other than maybe trying to find an airplane to get on…..even that has become complicated with our lack of cell service and nearly impossible WIFI time. Stay tuned….
