FINIS - Winter Season 2016-2017 Ends

Things have really wound down here at Twentynine Palms RV Resort, most of our snowbirds have headed back home or on to other adventures.

There are still a few of us here closing up things and waiting for better weather at our chosen summer locations.

We could not be without our Saturday Evening Dinner, so Jim and Linda put some dogs and sausage on the grill and we all brought something and enjoyed a wonderful evening outside in the cool desert air. The weather has been beautiful the past few weeks, highs in the high 80's and lows in the 50's make for very comfortable evenings.

The "Back Porch and Man Cave" were put to use!

World Problems were easily solved!

Food hit the grill!

Always under a watchful eye!

Plenty of food!

The "Man Cave"

The Clubhouse Kitchen is all closed up for the winter scrubbed clean!

The main room in the Clubhouse is scrubbed and everything put away!

Tables folded and stored!

Chairs all stacked and ready for next year!

Ready for next years Memories!

If you are traveling be safe and we will see you next year!

If you are looking for a fun friendly place to spend next winter, make plans to join us for some winter fun! Great Park and most important - fun people and tons of activities and fun times. Three miles from Joshua Tree NP, large clubhouse with Saturday Evening dinners and dancing, enclosed pool and hot tub, walking distance to a regulation 9 hole golf course with scheduled weekly scrambles. Warm winter weather with plenty of sunshine! We will be back in early November so make plans to join us for the winter 2017-2018 and beyond, once you join us you will be back year after year!

Look back through the winter months at our activity calendar and see the fun we had!

Blog Update - The Last Supper and Breakfast

It's Official!

Last evening about 12 of us gathered for our last official Saturday Evening Dinner. Jim and Bobbie provided the main dish of spaghetti with meat Sauce and salad, pot luck for the rest - there were wings for appetizer, cabbage salad, hot garlic bread and pie and ice cream for dessert...we had a great time.

Ben baked pies and they were popular!

Sunday Morning was pancakes and sausage and had a good crowd - with Spring break still going on, bunch of tent campers and families up for the weekend - free entrance fees at the National Park and their campgrounds are full!

Big Jim was working the griddle...


Many Thanks to Jim & Bobbie Groos for a wonderful season!

Nice crowd for pancakes!

Lots of young people tent camping in the RV Park!

All that remains for this season is final cleanup of the kitchen and clubhouse then pack up and head North!

See everyone in November!

Blog Update - Joshua Tree in Bloom & Last Dinner

Have to laugh at hearing about the snow people are dealing with who left early - Our weather here has been perfect the past two weeks - high in the high 70's - low 80's and high 40's low 50's at night...perfect sunny and light winds most of the time...the golfers are loving it.

Joshua Tree is in Bloom!

We had what seems to be the last Saturday Night Dinner Potluck - Hamburgers and Hot Dogs on the grill!

We had a nice crowd of about 15 people and they brought all the fixins - relish tray - potato salad, chips and dip etc.

Wednesday Night Happy Hour and BBQ will continue for a few more weeks, but the kitchen is getting cleaned out and closed this week. Jim & Lori will be heading out this week as well as Don & Frankie.

I will be here until mid May and Jim & Bobbie will be around a few more weeks.

Stay Tuned!

Blog Update - A few of us are still here and having fun!

The winter crowd has dwindled down to a few, but we are still getting together and having fun. Another great Saturday Night dinner!

Jim & Bobbie Groos provided a wonderful dinner for our small group - a family specialty - Chicken Ole!

There was plenty of chicken breast in the casserole and it was fantastic!

And do you remember the wonderful Prime Rib we had on New Years, well Jim Prestwood dug up the ribs he removed from the depth of the freezer and boy were they good!

And for dessert Anita provided a wonderful Tequila Laced Trifle which was fantastic and a little ice cream!

There were plenty of snacks and appetizers to start Happy Hour and of course wine and beer!

There was also a pancake breakfast this morning and there were about 15 people signed up so we continue on. Ice cream social on Friday also had a good turnout.

Wednesday Night Happy Hour and BBQ is now moving to Saturday the season winds down.

This week is clean the kitchen and get everything put away for the winter.

Stay Tuned who knows what will get planned over the next couple weeks.
