Hi everyone, we are parked here in a place called Kingsman,AZ. It is HOT. Last night we were in Bakersfield, CA and I thought it was going across the Mojave desert and it was 103 degrees at 11am. The Hwy 40 was straight..........and hot. There were a change in the surrounding areas as we headed East. From farm land to cacti and odd rock formations. Eventhough it is sooo hot, the beauty is vast. We found out that California fuel (diesel) is higher than Arizona. The RV park in Bakersfield was very nice, Bakerfields Palms RV Resort was what it was called. It was older, but had a new section that we stayed in and it was very southwestern (all cement and palm trees). It had a pool, that we really enjoyed. Close to groceries and shopping. Hard to find, but we finally found it. Well worth it. It is a Good Sam place so we got a 10% discount. We are here in Kingsman RV park, in AZ. It is 103 degrees at 6pm. Nice place, but no pool. 15 miles East of Kingsman. It is a Good Sam so we got the 10%. Tomorrow......Grand Canyon.....
