Borrego Springs California 2012

Tim and I just got back home from Borrego Springs.  Beth and Elia hosted another great time at the Springs of Borrego RV  park.  This is the 6th year they hosted the same spring event and I think we made every one but one.  The Springs is a GlampGround and priced like one but Beth negotiated a great group rate for 30 rigs.   The reservations sold out in one day  on the Rainbowrv site last November when the event was posted.

We were able to get away from work on Thursday and rushed to the rv park to beat the threatening weather. The wind was at our back all the way up the 10 freeway  past PalmSprings. We opted this path as I feared there may be snow if we drove down Montezuma grade. Yes Snow This time of year the mountains around PalmSprings and SanDiego get a dusting that usually doesn't last more than 2 days at a time. My caution was well placed when we woke up Friday morning to fresh snow in the vistas.

Thursday Night was a pre event campout and as usual we had a relaxing time. 10 of us caravanned to the Borrego Airport for Italian fare.  Good food and great service.  Nothing will compare to Italian food in Philadelphia but this place came close.  Of interest at the airport was a bunch of vintage planes tied down for a pending airshow that weekend.  I'm not into it but we took information back to camp for members who are.  Elia is alway on the look out for things for members to do during the day.

Friday Meet and Greet was warm.  I would guess there were 80 to 90 members there and a bit more present for Saturday Night PotLuck.  Both nights events broke early enought to give us time for LPG Faux campfires and cocktails at everyone's rigs.

Saturday night Tim and I won a expresso coffee service. it is fun to win anything.  the set will remain a cherished treasure ( for someone some day). Teresa & Alex of Mission Viejo won the flag Beth hand made by herself. We were out of the contest for one because Beth made us two. Yes Two. Tim sent one to a flag shop and they lost it. I have been lookin for it on CraigsList China.

Thanks to everyone for making this a great trip. The 4x4 adventure was the best yet... and the flan - also the best we've ever had, flantastic! And thanks to Candy for taking some great 4x4 pictures too... love seeing the Jeeps (and Hummers) in action.
