It has been some time since my last entry. This will start those for summer.
We left Sun City at 0700 for the drive to Long Beach and the campground. We had moved the check in date up from Monday to Sunday thinking the traffic would be less, WRONG. It was a beautiful day, clear skies, no wind with a temperature forcaste to top 100 in Phoenix. We were on the I-10 by 0730 and already it was heavy traffic. It only got worse along with the temperature. By the time we were in Palm Springs it was over 100. It seemed everyone was coming back home to greater LA on the roads. The 10 was stop and go, then on to the 60 which was a little better. BUT then the
215 and 91. The 91 looked like a huge parking lot. Everyone stopped, then they all move and then they all stop. Not many people using the carpool lane or the toll lanes. I will have to check into the costs of the toll lanes. Finally made it to the 710, headed South to Long Beach. Traffic heavy but not bad. The turn off to the campground was not closed as reported earlier so an easy entry was made.
The manager of the campground was on duty, welcomed us and said to check in and not worry about paper work until later. We will be here the entire summer and she knows us from before. Our same slot was open and held for us. Took a few minutes to place the coach exactly like we wanted it and then to get out of the heat. It was over 90, very unusual. The campground was FULL. Seems it was PRIDE week and you could see the rainbow flags on all the coaches. They will all be leaving tomorrow.
Monday will consist of finishing the set up and looking over the area to familiarize ourselves again.
