Bob,

I have heard that you can now stay in your RV during the ferry ride. They now even allow you to cook in the RV, as well as sleep. What a great improvement for RV ferry riders. Some day, I plan on riding the Copper Canyon RR, then ferry over to Baja, and leisurely drive up Baja.

Lots of selection of r.v. parks, no reservations req'd. in DHS all with thermal waters.
Roger:
Did you find a good spot last time in Desert Hot Springs or should we be 'sussin one out?
Sounds like Uwe is going to meet us in D.H.S. as well. Due to the last trip's confusion on what food we can return Stateside I now have a printout of what is o.k.

We liked the place that we stayed at on the way back. They have 3 different pools with different temps. I will track down the name as it escapes me right now. I will call and ask about reservations for 3 but not reserve them just yet.

Looking forward to getting away!

OK. Found the info about where we stayed: Sams Family Spa

The price is a little steep ($38) but it does include use of their pools, etc. They normally charge people off the street $12/person for that. If anyone knows of a different place, I am open to suggestions. I don't think they take reservations so I will call for availability in a day or two.

Uwe, will you bring your generator again? I may bring the satellite dish to keep the daughter a bit more entertained. I have an inverter but I may need a charge or two.

It is about 300 miles for us on this first leg. So 5-6 hours. We are going high desert 'cause I don't want to mess with the LA basin. We hope to be there by 5pm. Or where ever it is decided to stay.

Looking forward to it!

Roger, I will bring the generator. Entertained teenagers are happy teenagers!
I have not decided if we're going to DHS or straight down.
How many hours is ti from DHS to the border?
I figure it would take me appr.2-3 hours to get to Desert Hot Springs from my home.
Let me know what is decided, then I can make a decision.

According to Streets and Trips, it is 117 miles to the border from DSH. Total of 241 to San Felipe. Are you planning on returning home on Sunday?

Here's a good looking spot in DHS for $25/ night (2 people). Kids would add $5/ea.

I'll keep looking. What would your ETA be on Weds.?

Yes, Sunday morning early. It looks as though the driving distance from Orange to Calexico is within 10 miles from going Orange-Desert Hot Springs-Calexico. Looks promising. I will have to see how we do on Wednesday, with preparing and packing. Hopefully we can meet up at Desert Hot Springs for the night.

Shrimp Festival

I just checked the weather in San Felipe, looks very pleasant, possibly will warm up after a few cloudy days.

Also, we're in luck! They're having the annual shrimp festival in town while we're there.

This is a problem that I have found at many of these parks at DHS. They are 55+ parks. I don't know if they would make an exception for one night for a 14 year old.

Just got an email back (11/1). They will not take children there. Then I realized that Roxie and I are not even above the minimum age! Boy, I sure feel like it! They, naturally, recommended Sam's family spa place. We don't have to stay at the same place but it would be nicer.

Our travel time will be about 5-6 hours. So if we leave by 10am we should be there by 5pm (including lunch).

Let's try and all meet at the same place, if possible.
Creampuff and I will scope out things once we get there, and save spots for the others, if necessary.
PM me if you need a cell phone number.
