It takes us almost an hour to get out of the Arco at Hwy 86 because the wind took out their system for paying at the pump, and our driver's side input still won't take fuel so we have to jockey to fill.
We're here to get "stuff done" in a good size city before heading back out to the desert for a couple weeks. Remarkably, Indio, CA, is now considered a resort town and every RV park reflects this in their pricing. I found a special for $39 less the 10% Good Sam discount at Indian Wells RV Carefree Resort and we're happy with the choice.
Not the type of place we usually stay, we are still happy with our spot, and it's proximity to all the stuff-doing places.

Drop off at Goodwill, pick up at Target and Shields Date Garden and Trader Joes. Tessa gets a much needed wash and wax of her own - as does the Jeep.

We take advantage of their propane filling service and get back on I-10 East.
A nice drive with increased traffic due to the holidays, we arrive in Lake Tamarisk before noon. Bill helps Coy get things ready for family and friends arriving over the next couple days.
New Year's Eve Coy's girlfriend Patty (and our dear friend), and his brother and sister-in-law Jimmy and Maggie (also friends of ours for decades), arrive during the day, and by the time the sun sets we are all having a great time!

We look forward to a 2016 full of new vistas, new friends and more Wows - while visiting old friends and staying connected to family.
|Ready for another great year!|
