View "Snowbirding 101" or Our first trip South for the winter on jcsc's travel map.

Today is Sunday, and we have enjoyed our busy week in SD area. But we needed to leave to get to our next destination in the Palm Springs area. Our drive north was fine except that we ran smack into a storm coming south. I was tested with rain and wind as I pulled our rig up here to Desert Hot Springs. We are staying at Caliente Hot springs. It is another huge park with lots and lots to do for people that have little or no imagination as to what they can do by themselves. The swimming pools & spas are well laid out and are very relaxing. I have taken advantage of them each evening. The water comes up from deep underground and is cooled to 103 degrees. It is mineral water w/o the stink. After going through the first pool, it is now cooler and goes to the next pool, and so on down through 4 beautifully designed pools and then into a serpentine long swimming pool. There is just about anything a person could want to do around here. They try hard to make their people happy. Yesterday, it was our turn to get their sales talk about their park models. It was an interesting eduacation for us, but for now we are staying w/ our RV. The wifi available at the resort is difficult to actually call wifi. It is so slow that right now we are at a nearby town library using their wifi. That is the one thing we miss about being on the road. Getting a good wifi signal is not always an easy thing to get.

It has been interesting to us that the parks down here are filled w/ mainly Canadians. They really do like our winters here in the SW and the business owners here love them. It's fun to talk w/ them while in the tubs each evening. There is so much to learn from everyone. The weather this week has been awful......that CA storm you have all heard about. The road in front of our site was a small river this morning....almost got my rod and reel out. Our Canadian neighbors have out some bird feeders. So we enjoy watching the Gambol Quail and lesser goldfinch as they feed. Tomorrow is supossed to be sunny, finally. We'll see........
