Picking up where we left off

Well, dag gum, what’s been going on. It’s been well over 2 weeks, since we have posted. Even Della has stopped for a while. 

So, let’s get back to business.

First where are we, that’s a good question, our coordinates well at least some info:

2892 Crystal Lake Ave, Thermal, CA 92274, 33.330823, -115.950535.

Now for some direction: Coming from I-10, head south on 86 (west side of Salton Sea), just as if you are going to Borrego Springs. When you see the Red Earth Casino. Go 4 miles south and turn left on Mariner Dr. Stay on Mariner until you see sign for West Shores Marine and RV Park. Turn left. Turn left onto Ontario Dr. Then turn right onto Crystal lake ave. Go to end of road and there you will see over 20 sites for dry camping.

If you are in need to fuel, propane, water, dump, continue south on 86 to the AM/PM . Free water and dump.

So what is the draw at this time of year here? PPG. PPG, what the heck is PPG, you say? Power Para Glider, those things people strap or sit in and fly around.

It seems after a week of training and starting around $7000, you to can fly in a PPG and go to these fly ins. We heard from Irene that the Mercier’s and Caterson's were dry-camping here for a week. After learning of this area we decided to head out from Thousand Trail in Palm Desert to visit. Guess what, it has been over 5 days and we are still here.

Next thing we know Lisa and Norm roll in (well after a pancake enticement) and stayed for a couple of days before heading out to Borrego Springs. More on Borrego Springs later. But for now lets get into the photos shall we.
