Day 2 in Earp, CA

Well we survived our first day on the road and are still acquiring our "travel legs." Our first night stay was in Newberry Springs, CA and trust me folks, this is nooooooooo place you want to be for long. It is outside of Barstow absolutely in the middle of no where but we stayed our first night here on our trip back in May 2004 so it seemed like a "swell idea." Unfortunately, we didn't make it before dark so it was a bit frantic in the desert, but we made it. The next morning we woke up and the RV was 36 degrees inside but the sun was shinning........

Day 2 we are in Earp, CA at an RV park, Emerald Cove Resort that has 410 spaces and is almost full. It's a great park right on the Colorado River with 2 swimming pools, club house, store & lots of walking trails. After wandering around the park we came upon Karaoke and free popcorn in the outside bar and hung out this afternoon. It's such a great place here (77 degrees and I have my black shorts on) we decided to stay an extra day and leave Tuesday for Quartzside, AZ.

Well at least I found out the computer works with the magic AT&T connection (thanks Nancy) and hopefully somebody out there will be reading this....please let me know. We are really enjoying this beautiful RV and looking forward to much more fun and travel.

I wish I knew what I was doing. I did one comment and couldn't send it. I'm the computer idiot.
Everything sounds good so far. Never heard of Newberry Springs - sounds like I don't need to rush over there.
Did you sing or just drink and eat popcorn?
Anxious to hear about the next venture. Keep these coming.
I'll get this figured out by the time you get home.

Carole, you're doing a great job keeping us up-to-date on your and Will's adventure. I love reading your comments, and I can't wait to read your impression of Quartzsite!

Glad that the computer works and I really am encouraged that you will keep up with the blogging! I am VERY jealous about the weather and the fact that you are wearing shorts! As you know, it is so cold back here--I think it will be a HIGH of 16 degrees on Friday...YUCK! I want to be back in Hawaii NOW! Love ya...have fun and keep writing!

**I am guessing that you DID NOT sing...eating popcorn is more our speed!

Hi Ho you two wanderers, happy to hear things are going well so far. We had a little afternoon sun here, but nothing like you are enjoying!
I will do my best to keep our fellow Breakfast Clubbers in line while you are gone.
Have fun!
