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!Then, 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. Barstow 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.
Rob showed me the 1956 DeSoto he’s been restoring. Such a cool car! No cup holders, though, and not much headroom for me.
After breakfast with my 92-year old first cousin, it was off for new parts of California!
