I’m in the middle of nowhere in the high desert on a lonely highway to Desert Hot Springs. Today’s drive is taking longer than expected. It’s very warm at our next stop with pools waiting for these kids. Another RV park not knowing what to expect.
Last night’s stop was interesting. It’s small, in a dusty location outside of town. There were a lot of long-term residents, but the place was clean with concrete patio areas. We were in a lot behind the main park because we wanted a pull thru. There were two other overnight RVers. We had a desert view. The bathrooms were clean, better than average. The manager lady sounded nice, though I didn’t talk to her, just heard her talking to John outside the RV.
A friend told me her husband got laid off today. That sucks. And this is not the first time. They went through their savings last time, and when they finally sold their house, they walked away with nothing. I try to get her to think positively about money, but she just keeps talking about being broke. Well, here you go.
We were able to walk away with money from the sale of our house. John got paid accrued vacation time. We paid off credit cards and put $10k down on the RV after selling the donut shop. So if we end up without much at the end of this trip, we’ll be no worse off than some other people. But we will have the experience.
I know we will end up with the perfect campground in the perfect location.
