Seems I am in the middle of a big, bad storm. I guess I should have been paying more attention.
It is cold and very windy outside but the rain has now stopped. I got in just ahead of the powerful, gusty winds that are now blowing across the Mohave and am safely ensconced in Minnie. It is warm inside, I have plenty to eat and drink, wi-fi and books to read and a good day's drive under my belt. Not much more I could ask for. Yesterday I was running the AC, today the heater.
Looks like I won't be passing over any mountain ranges anytime soon so the new plan is to head to the coast and slide back into Oregon from that direction. I am actually excited about this new change in plans and hope the weather will allow for this new strategy. I think I can make it to Red Bluff, CA tomorrow and then will adjust accordingly.
Tonight I am in Santa Nella, CA at the Santa Nella RV Park. It is perfectly fine for an overnight stay and is costing me less than $24.
I would post a picture of my site but I am feeling too "snug as a bug" to go outside in this weather.
