      Looks like I'll be out there around noon. Had some trailer tire trouble. (Say that five times fast...)

      Glad you took time to tackling the trailer tire trouble. Trashing or tearing your trailer tires while traveling would be terrible.

      Yeah we forgot to fill the water tank and it was pretty close to empty. So we just pulled up to a random house on the way and started filling up:D

      For anyone headed west on Interstate 10, it is still backed up starting at Palm Drive.

      I was going to post up earlier about this but got sidetracked. It was a charter bus that plowed into the back of a big rig trailer. The bus was coming from the Red Earth Casino near the Salton Sea. It's pretty bad...13 killed and 30 or so injured.

      We made it home safe in spite of an hour detour in the slums of Palm Springs. Had a blast as always. Great to see everyone!

      We made it home about a hour and half ago. Good trip though :thumbsup:


      Crazy Rick made it home before me and I passed him coming out of Red Earth after he filled up.:eek:

      It took us a hour to go a mile, from the back up.:banghead:

      I wasn't filling up. I needed to buy a tail light bulb for the trailer. The drive out to camp killed both the left side trailer bulb and the left front turn signal bulb at the same time. I did a lighting check before leaving home and everything was good.

      Sorry to hear about your long ride home. I saw the wreck on the news. Absolutely horrible. The bus drove 15 feet into the big rig's trailer:eek:

      Time for LED.

      I just swapped out the tail light camper bulbs before I left. Much brighter, and they will probably last the rest of the life of the camper.

      I'm glad I made the impromptu trip out there yesterday. Looks like the new campsite is a hit with everyone.
