Well I just got home and I'm glad I'm done fighting the WINDS. Friday was the best day out there. Rick, Mark and I got there in the afternoon and the weather was very pleasant. Friday evening the weather was still nice and everyone who was just arriving got to see an outside evening drive up movie and then Directv from the Satil. dish provided the rest of the evening's entertainment. Sat. morning was still nice with a little breeze and we all loaded up our truck's for a morning run. By noon ALL H--- broke out. The wind and sand were to much. We all spent the rest of Sat. inside the coach watching off-road movie's provided by Spotterguy (Winter). There was only one minor carnage by RJ friend. He broke off a valve stem and they had to go back to camp for his spare tire. By late Sat. nite ( I was already in bed) the wind had die down and a few of the guy's did a nite run. By then they also were able to have a fire (12:30 pm). Today Sun. the weather was pleasant when I left at 10:00 am. but by the time I reach Palm Spring's on I-10 all H--- broke out again with the wind's. Not fun in a 38' RV. Anyway I think we all had a good time inspite of the wind's and the last TH for the season, until next Oct.:D

Being the current campsite queen that I am currently I get to watch everyone leave to go out on a run, and wait for everyone to return. While they were out wheeling I was watching the ever increasing WIND bend the flagpoles and hold me prisoner inside the motorhome. The flags I am more than happy to report held up fantastic!!!! :D
 






I had a good time out there. Thanks Mark for letting me ride along. Your Explorer with 375,000 miles is simply amazing:D

Good thing I left early as the winds were really picking up about an hour away from home. The cross winds were bad.

I'll be posting pics soon.
 






...glad to hear you guys had fun...can't wait to see the pics..:popcorn:
 






Made it home a little while ago. Had a great time this weekend. Sat. morning was a good run:thumbsup: Got to test out my winch draging RJ's buddy's Heep out of the spot they were in after they lost there valve stem. I got stuck on the rock over at the water fall:rolleyes: Had 3 tires spinning while the slider was sitting on the rock. Went to the phone booth where I learned Rick and Paul had never been:eek: Saturday afternoon was a wash because of the wind, and we were waiting for the jeep to get back. Wind got worce, and then died off enough for us to make a night run. Froader, Bkenndy, and myself (with Maniak riding shotgun) went out and found some good chalaging stuff in the ditches:thumbsup: Sunday some of the guys headed out for a morning run, but I desided to back up and leave. My Truck and Trailer setup was good on the way out getting 14mpg:thumbsup: But on the way back it was horriable! The truck son't have enough a power, and that new trailer, is just way to heavy! I was having trouble holding 55 going up the hill out of palm springs, in 2nd gear at 4000 rpm:( I will not have a trans long at that rate. I'm thinking of selling the trailer, and picking up a lighter one in the fall.
Thanks to Paul for the use of his theater services:D:thumbsup:

I'll post pics soon;)
