I stored Gina's Jeep and Burro while she was in Mexico working. Then I got my own rig ready, 'cause she talked me into making reservations at Dos Picos County Park.

Here are some pictures of waiting for the weekend to begin:

After work on Friday, Gina picked up her rig. I finished up later and followed. We got adjoining campsites.

Note how I use the Odyssey's second and third row seating to furnish my patio under the awning.

Dos Picos was a pretty good campground for being as close to a large population as it was. It was clean, everyone was behaved and very friendly. We had sites in the unshaded upper loop (It was on a hill above the rest of the campground) but all sites had 30a electric and water was easy for MOST sites. The layout was a bit weird.. but it worked. We had a hard time trying to figure out just what each of our sites boundaries were, because my hook ups seemed to be on the wrong side, but the water stub had two faucets.. my electric was on the left, water on the right, shared with 3 sites (Or more )

I got there before Fred, and decided to park crossway's instead of backing in because of the space between my site and the one next to me. It worked well for pairs of RVs.. tho Fred's site was short and not very wide.

The upper loop would be great for a winter rally. There is a large enclosed pavilion building rentable for cheap in the middle of the loop. All the sites form a wide circle.. about a dozen of them. Everyone can see everyone else from their sites.

I didn't go in the bathrooms, but I saw the rangers and attendants near and in them frequently, so they must have kept them up as well as they do the park.

The lower shaded loops sites are close together, but despite the tent city it created, it did not have a cruddy campground feel at all. And for as packed as it was.. I heard no loud music, burping, beer bottle throwing or other annoyances typical of a close in area.

The campground is located for easy day trips to Julian and rustic Romona.. and high desert points like Polamar mountain, Anzo Borrego and a couple small lakes that were more like melted mud puddles due to the drought this year.

The highlight of the weekend, for me, was going with Robert to his bothers house a stones throw away. His sister in law grows organic fruits and vegetables, in mass qtys...and we got a feast of off the vine food for a nice omlette this morning. I was eating beans off the stalks. Like candy!

That's Fred and Roberts buddies Bob and Roger.

They have a Tin Can (Airstream, I think) but we talk to them anyway

They came down for the day to get out of the Heat in Palm Springs.

Bob and Roger live full time in a resale Fema Trailer that they bought from a dealer in Florida. They keep telling me they got a real bargain.
