From The Ocean To The Desert

We had a beautiful drive from Half Moon Bay to Bakersfield, with mile after mile after mile of Almond farms and even a brief section of citrus trees. The smell was amazing – it was like ‘Soarin’ Over California’ at Disneyland’s California Adventure!

After Bakersfield, strong, gusty winds made for a fun drive with Monty 🤪 The Tehachapi Pass has been harnessing wind energy for electrical power since the early 1980’s and is the largest wind farm in California.

Wind Farms

Made it to Las Vegas and were completely blown away (not just because of the 60 mph gusts of wind!) by the size and scale of the RV park we booked in to! Everything is massive in Vegas, and this is no exception.

A secured, gated entry, several ‘check in’ lanes, and a main office building that included a store (groceries, souvenirs, clothing, RV supplies, slot machines), restaurant, bar and banquet hall, took us by surprise! The pools are located behind this 😎

There are about 935 RV sites in this complex and at least half of them are occupied by the big diesel-pusher motorhomes, with tow vehicles! There are only a few vacant spots and they are completely full for this next weekend! Unbelievable!!!

We love Vegas! Shopped, ate fabulous meals, gave some donations 😉 and now it’s time to move on.

The Fountains of Bellagio

So far on our journey, we’ve been quite familiar with the cities and towns on our route as none of them are new to us. It’s now time to venture out to parts unknown, at least to us 😜 and see where the road leads!
