Hot time on the High Desert – #2

The first place I camped after leaving home was a pretty spot on the desert where I grew up.  This campground was on a lake with geese, ducks and other water birds… peaceful and quiet.  I visited four friends while there. A first for me was getting gas with my trailer hooked up and towing it through a gas station successfully!Hesperia LakesThen, because it wasn’t hot enough in Hesperia (110 degrees), I headed for Barstow and met up with a few of my cousins at Black Bear Diner.  Black Bear DinerBarstow still wasn’t hot enough (114), so I left for Boron.  Cousin Millie & Rob let me park in front of their house for a few nights, and Rob repaired three shelves in the trailer.  He also gave me a lock for my hitch coupler and answered a ton of questions about trailers and towing.  Millie and I cooled off with water aerobics and met a friend for Adult Coloring at the library. Pool

Rob showed me the 1956 DeSoto he’s been restoring.  Such a cool car! No cup holders, though, and not much headroom for me.DeSotoRob's DeSoto

After breakfast with my 92-year old first cousin, it was off for new parts of California! Cousin Coffee
