Another Year of RV Adventuring Part 1

We have spend the last part of 2013 in Jojoba, Enjoying the mostly warm sunny weather. We had another great year of traveling. We didn't get to any new states as we stayed in the western states we have traveled to many times. However we still went to some new places. We started the year in the California and Arizona deserts. We returned to do some boondocking in Borrego Springs, a trip to the madness of the Big Tent Show in Quartsite and to a new free boondocking spot at American Girl Mine near Yuma.

February saw us take another trip with the Escapees Mexican Connection, this time to San Felipe. We went on a four wheel drive run and saw a parade in San Felipe among other fun things while there.

After that we attended a RV Dreams Rally in Quartsite and made our first trip to the famous Desert Bar near Parker.


We spend some more of the winter at Lake Havasu State Park and back to a week at American Girl Mine before heading back to So Cal for some time in Huntington Beach.

Next up was our first time to the Escapee's Co-Op in Jojoba Hills. We stayed there to attend Kori and Nick's wedding at a winery in Temecula which was beautiful and lots of fun. We also fell in love with Jojoba and its great views and friendly people and put money down on a membership.






Springtime found us in some new places. We spend a few weeks in the area around Phoenix area at three of their wonderful regional parks and some time at Lake Roosevelt. Lots to see including the Superstition Mountains, the Apache Trail, and a number of lakes in the area. We paddled at Lake Roosevelt and Saguaro Lake.

The rest of April led us to a return trip to Lake Powell. However, before that we went to two new places, Canyon de Chelly, with more great Utah scenery and then Boondocked on the edge of Gooseneck State Park.

Our last days in April were spent at another new spot in Utah, Kodachrome Basin State Park. What a great little park that has numerous trails right in the park. We also took a few drives in the area as well.






Oh my, only through the end of April and still so many places to go in 2013. Stay tune for one more blog before we head on to 2014 adventures.
