Where I stayed
Whisky Flats RV
We started day one early, hoping to miss traffic and get a good chunk of our journey done while it was still light. Unfortunately, the best laid plans and all that...we didn't bank on hitting early morning fog! Thick as sea poop, as they say, for the first hour or so off and on. Managed to get to San Bernadino and once through there, the fog disappeared.
All was going well until just north of San Bernadino. It was quite windy and we heard a loud clunk suddenly. We looked back on the road and didn't see anything, pulled over and checked around the motorhome but couldn't see anything. So, we started up again and shortly heard the same loud clunk
The rest of the trip was pretty uneventful. Drove up and up through a lot of desert and eventually reached a plateau near Victorville, a sprawling community in the middle of nowhere. Stopped for gas in a small town called Big Pine, which was surrounded by beautiful mountains. Another climb and other than this, the scenery was VERY boring...miles and miles of nothing but sage, tumbleweeds, antelope brush, sand and rock...the Mojave Desert. It went on forever!
We crossed into Nevada and in the late afternoon, reached our destination for the night...Hawthorne, NV. Stayed at a nice RV Park with pull-through sites. We didn't even unhook. We ate an early dinner then went inside the office to watch the Oscars until the office closed, headed home to watch the end on our pipsqueak tv and tucked in early.
