Along Came A Spider

I had a coupon for three free nights at the Fountain of Youth Spa RV Resort so I have been here for a few days enjoying all the luxuries of a full hook-up as well as the numerous hot water mineral pools.  Feeling so luxurious after four nights of dry camping.  The park is across the road from the Salton Sea which is another beautiful area for camping.

Today I was enjoying lunch outside when this BIG spider came walking down the road.  I have never seen anything like it but I am guessing it is a tarantula.  What a beauty.
Tomorrow I am off again for more dry camping.  I had some problems with my generator on the last dry camping experience so I am hoping that new house batteries have solved the problem.  My generator worked fine for awhile but then it puttered out.  The only way I could start the generator was by starting the car motor and as soon as the motor was turned off, the batteries would slowly lose power and everything would start to dim.  I had the batteries checked and the reading said they were not holding a charge so with two new house batteries, I really hope that is the end of the problem.  Otherwise it will be a cold few nights!

Off to the Slabs and Quartzite.


  1. In Quartzsite, the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous will be Jan 8-22. I'll be there, along with many people living in vans, trucks, rvs, and people wanting to find out about it. You can probably get help with whatever project you wish to work on.

    1. Hi Blars. I am hoping to make the RTR in January. Going to try and connect with Bob at his campsite in the next few days.
