Desert Rendevouz 2014

So over the weekend of March 21st I once again got to go on what has become one of my favorite yearly events, the Desert Rendevouz hosted by Dave and the wonderful people at http://americanadventurist.com/ This year the event was just off the Bradshaw Trail a bit north of the Salton Sea and only a few miles from Chiriaco Summit on I10.

A few pictures around camp on Friday afternoon

Memorial Day Camping 2011 (Day 1)

So Mrs. Nomad and I decided to go camping for our Memorial Day. We got ourselves, the trailer, and the Jeep all loaded up and set off for Idyllwild Thursday afternoon prepared for a great weekend…

After battling our way past traffic on the 91 freeway we were finally  on CA60 heading past UCR on our way towards Banning when we heard a distant “POP” Not thinking too much of it we continued on our way.
