Yes, we did have a couple hot weeks, but we're back to normal now. Going to be beautiful for the BNP. Sorry you left us early....

We'll be back for the BNP the 16th, 17th, and 18th. Can't miss Venus' return.

Yes, inquiring minds would like some details.

Johnitis-May I ask where you stayed in Palm Desert. We want to winter with a newer coach in that area but the Outdoor and Emerald Parks are pricey.
Also looking at Texas. Mexico seems scary, Florida is a long way from home but will do it at some point.
I am wondering if the 42-45ft coach owners stay in the motor coach resort parks all the time because there budgets allow them not to worry about it?
I am hoping we can find nice parks but not at $2,000 + a month?

Rollin Stone, I'm actually really selfish, and normally don't share stuff like this, but we stayed at Horizon Village in Palm Springs. It was our first winter there, but we love the place. The community is mostly permanent "vintage" models, with scattered spaces for coaches up to 45'. No site is alike - some are shaped by the mountain, some by vegetation. The community is wonderful (you Canadians really know how to celebrate winter vacation!) with lots of fun events. Downtown is close, and there's a free shuttle tram that stops right in front. Grocery stores are a nice walk or short bike ride when exiting onto East Palm Canyon either to the left or right. It's right under the hill from the Bob & Delores Hope estate, so can tell jealous friends that you are wintering *next* to it. There are a couple of hiking access trails starting right in the park at the hill. In fact, the hill and mountain were my only issues because it gets dark earlier, but I finally just started cocktails earlier. Thanks to the mountain, however, it avoids those windstorms they get out in the valley. Lots of retired artists from the cities live here, and keep it really beautiful.

Rollin Stone, I don't want to derail the thread to an anti-Mexico rant, but one of the top three best spots ever for us is Playa Santispac, just south of Mulege, Baja California Sur, Mexico. We paid about $8/day for two sites - for the privacy - with a palapa on the beach, no hook-ups, and a dump onsite.

On either end of the beach was a restaurant with a bar, one with a dance floor and pool tables. Every morning, vendors came by with fresh vegetables and fresh fish, and a baker came twice weekly. The Sunbird community, mostly Canadians, and US West Coasters, is great. I clammed and kayaked, there are lots of hiking trails, and the area has great historical sites, and museums. There are markets in town that are quite welcoming, as is the entire local community. Again, no services but propane and fresh water trucks come through.

Playa Santispac is just one of many beautiful beach parks on Bahia Conception, and we'll choose a different one when we return next winter. All have an ambiance of Margaritaville. Most of our friends cross the border at Tecate with all of the other RVers, while claiming less congestion, but we were the only RV crossing (and easily) at Tijuana. The drive down was fascinating, and we never felt imperiled.

Johnitis,
Thank you for sharing the Palm Springs RV site against your better judgement. I would never know this place had Rv sites. |I missed this one. It kinda looks like a 45 ft Rig and a level site might be a challenge but that maybe my wrong impression from the web site. I'll keep it on our radar for sure.

The Mexico Baja site is stunning.More research is needed for this area on my part. Any time I could get on the beach safely I would have to give that some serious thought.Perhaps a new thread to discuss Mexico might be appropriate. I know if i were traveling with otherRvers, it would help my level of safety and security.
Glad to hear the Canadians are enjoying them selves and passing along the party atmosphere. Thank you.
