50 Miles South

We made our move yesterday.  The people who were moving into our site were there and waiting for us to leave. 

Our big move was to the Oasis Palms RV Park, South of Mecca on the 86... and I do mean ON the 86.  We weren't sure we would be able to sleep with all the traffic on the highway... it's very noisy... but we both slept fine.  Hopefully that will be the case every night, because other than highway noise, we love this place!

It is a Passport America park, and we took a Water/Electric site (no sewer and no concrete pad)... but they have a dump station and we have a blue tote so no problem!  AND... we pay only $11 night!  We can stay for 2 weeks at that rate.

We came here rather than going directly to Lake Havasu, just because we want to check out some more hikes (Painted Canyons and Ladder Canyons), and visit Slab City and Salvation Mountain.  But we may stay here for the 2 weeks!  who knows?

This place is unbelievable.  Very friendly staff and fellow RVers, nice pool and hot tub (that stays open all night), AND there are fruit trees all over with Oranges, Lemons and Grapefruit.  All free for the picking.  We picked 4 big Grapefruit yesterday and ate 2 of them.... they were wonderful!

There is just one issue!  Something is wrong with our electric.  They think that a gopher may have chewed through one of the lines, and they have promised to have it fixed on Monday.  They gave us the option of moving to a pull-through full hookup site for no extra charge, but we don't want to move!  We were perfectly level, all hooked up and we love our site!  So we opted to use our generator until they get it fixed Monday.  We had paid for 3 days, and they extended our stay another 3 days at no charge, so we are happy campers for sure!  6 days for $33 and free fruit!

Well it is another beautiful day in the neighborhood, so I had better get out and enjoy it!

Hope you have a wonderful day wherever you are!


  1. What a deal! I hope your electric gets fixed soon. That fruit looks luscious!

  2. $11/night and three free dirt. We wouldn't move either.
    The park looks lovely. All that free fruit...what a bonus. Hope you enjoy Slab City and Salvation Mountain as much as we did!

  3. Wow, don't know how u find all these cool places to stay.... on the cheap too! I like all the grass and the trees!

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent health.
