Yesterday we drove to California. Pilot knob rv park. We are maybe 5 miles inside California. As soon as you drive across the border you gain an hour another time zone ya have not gotten use to the last 2. Today we drove across that line 3 times. So now we are 3 hours earlier than at home. Trying to stay up later but the eyes just cant stay open nothing like getting up at 3 am.
Driving over here we finally saw these magnificent cactus not sure what they are called yet some one told me but can not remember.
This is the first time I have seen this kind of solar system. They are mirrors that shine on a pipe that runs down the center of them they heat up what ever liquid is in the pipe I think it might be water by the amount of steam coming out of the building behind them.I was told they use steam to turn the turbines to make electricity.
There had to be 5 to 10 acres of the mirrors what a great idea.
This is where we are parked We belong to ROD a campground club where you can stay in any of there parks for 2 weeks for free than out for a week and you can go back in for 2 more weeks once a year. 3 quarters of the park is empty yet they act like they have no room for you we are getting so sick of this club we will not be renewing it for next year. If anyone ask me about ROD never waist your money on this club we have had nothing but problems with them this year. And most of the people we have talked to have many complaints.
If you look real hard you can see all kinds of people parked out in the desert. They have areas down here where you can just drive off into the desert and park you can only stay in one place for 2 weeks. then you have to move. Talked to a few people and they just keep moving around. You need to empty your holding tanks and get more water so moving is not a bad thing. They all have solar panels for there electric needs. It cost ether 180 for 6 months or you can pay 40 dollars every 2 weeks. I guess its a cheap way to stay in the warmer weather (except at night time)
