Finally!!! I'm off on another adventure to Yuma Arizona. Nick and Terry Russell publish the Gypsy Journal Newspaper and have two rallys a year for RV lovers. The West Coast version is at the fairgrounds in Yuma. Having been last year with my good friends Patty and Dan Chance, I didn't want to miss it.
I try to plan my trips ahead so I know how far to drive and where to spend the night and get fuel. I was all set for a long drive Friday to Beaumont-Banning area in southern California, spending the night at the Elks Lodge when Dan called and asked if I had checked the weather predictions for WIND!! Uh ... no ... wind?? ... I was so concerned about SNOW over Tehachapi that I had not considered wind. Apparently it was 40 mph in the Yuma area ... my RV can handle about 25. TOTAL change of plans!!
The NEW plans are to drive the short leg to Tehachapi and spend the night, driving the long leg to Yuma when the winds had subsided. This is my second home over the pass where I have spent many nights. Good thing I planned for all weather, cuz it was 36 degrees when I took this picture as I was heading out at 6:15 a.m. in order to get through Banning before the winds picked up again.
