Mugu Beach with the Elks

Once again I took on the job (Wagon Master) to organize another camping trip for the Simi Valley Elks camping club. This trip was scheduled for Pt. Mugu State Park at Mugu Beach.  The camp-out was schedule for July 7 - 11, 2014. We had 13 rigs that made it out for the camp-out.

I have attached the a link to the camping report on the trip rather than rewriting it all over again. Enjoy!

Yes, another excuse to bring the Smoker...Tri-tip anyone?

We have a patriotic crew...

Joshua Tree National Park

I sure love the desert!
Well, as I enter this post I realize how far behind I am with all the trips we have had. In April  (3-6, 2014) we linked up with some friends at Joshua Tree National Park for a great weekend of camping. We stayed at Black Rock Canyon Campground, near Yucca Valley, which became our base for several adventures while exploring new country in the Park.

Our friends Don and Lynn Buck also brought Lynn's Mom Maria on the trip. One day I took the gang on a off-road Jeep adventure on the Geology Trail. Lynn's Mom, Maria said she has never experienced going off road in the desert and truly enjoyed the ride, even if it was a little bouncy.

Good day for a drive...

Jean, Lynn and Don...where's Maria?

I should also mention that it was a great flower season in the park.

One of the days I took off on my own and drove through some new country I have not explored in before. One road took me to Eureka Peak which  I hiked to a few years back. I did not know that there was a road to the peak...

So once the summer heat starts to decline I'm heading back for some more desert camping!

Pechanga RV Resort

Well, time sure flies when you're having fun. I'm going to keep this blog short because I'm so behind on posting. For the weekend of March 14 - 16th, I took the RV to Pechanga RV Resort to camp with my Brother Patrick who was celebrating his Birthday.

I must admit it's a very nice RV Resort next to a Casino. I plan to go back again sometime in the near future.
