Happy Thanksgiving

We all have many things to be Thankful for on this wonderful day - I am Thankful to be in this park with all the wonderful cooks and friends. Once again we must thank Lori and her kitchen crew for an amazing meal and all the park guests who added to the traditional menu!!

The kitchen crew started the day early with 2 deep fried turkeys and two oven baked turkeys and a nice ham. Then of course there is the gravy and organizing all the serving tables and getting everything put out on time. We started promptly at 2:00 PM and after a few announcements and a short prayer we were on out way!

The food line was lengthy!

Early Winter Update - Season is now starting!! Nov 3, 2014

Our winter season is just around the corner - I am on my way and in Pahrump taking care of some personal business. Yesterday I drove through Death Valley and on the way back to Pahrump passed a whole caravan of RV's, I am sure that several will be headed to our home in Twentynine Palms.

I am anxious to get back to my winter home and see old friends from last year. We had a great season of activities last year and I expect more of the same this year with everyone returning, hopefully healthy and happy!

I managed a couple pictures in my travels to add here!

Nothing like a wonderful Desert sunset - expect more when I get to 29 Palms!

My summer travels took me as far North as Alaska and a long time in Montana and Utah and even a trip back to my home on Ohio. Managed to take a few great pictures and will be looking forward to sharing my trip with my friends at the RV Resort in my winter home!

Got to see plenty of beautiful fall colors!

I will be at resort late tomorrow if all goes as planned. Looking forward to updating the calendar and seeing my winter friends Wednesday at "Happy Hour"

OH and guess what I am bringing for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

You guessed it some wonderful Smoked Alaska Salmon so make sure you are here for the holidays!!

More regular updates starting this week! Stay Tuned!
