The first day of driving from Phoenix to the Mountain View RV park in Tehachapi, CA ended up being a pretty good adventure. We wanted to stay off of the major interstates as much as possible so after taking I-10 out of Phoenix we got off at exit 45 and took Vicksburg Rd to the 72 then the 95 and on to Parker. From there the plan was to take the 62 across to Joshua Tree but a flash flood had shut the 62 down and we had to drive back to Quartzite and keep taking the 10 till the 177. Eventually we were on the 62 and got to experience 29 Palms, or as we now know it: 29 Tweakers. That was a strange town, granted we were only at the gas stations for a fill up so it may not be the best representation of the area. There sure were a lot of old RV’s all over the place. Probably a cool place to return to in the winter months.
We made out way to Apple Valley where I had a conference call with clients. That is one windy town. Holy moly!
Eventually we made it to camp after way too many hours of driving. We have decided that 300 miles in a day is the new maximum. The park was up against a grass runway for a small rural airport that also does glider trips. We setup ate dinner and crashed to prepare for the next day of driving.
