Our trip from Lake Havasu City, AZ to Newberry Springs, CA covered 157 miles, almost all of it on I-40, across the desert southwest just south of the Mohave Desert. I don't think many people who haven't been here know how mountainous this part of our country is - not the 10,000-14,000 peaks of the Rockies but mountain ranges none the less. We gave the Mothership a drink just before getting on I-40 which should last us until we have worked our way about halfway up the length of California.
We are staying at the Newberry Mountain RV Park
just a little east of Newberry Springs. It is all gravel but does have 50 amp full hookup pull-throughs just barely long enough for us to leave Libby attached as well as a few back-ins and surprisingly a few pull-throughs with no hookups for those that prefer dry camping I suppose. We have strong Verizon since we are only 100 yards from I-40 and their trees are currently very small so the satellite was an easy lock. We will keep our filter fan in the bedroom on high tonight to mask the traffic noise which isn't really all that bad.
We didn't do anything while here but catch up on a few things around the Mothership. We head for Bakersfield tomorrow for a two night stay before turning north up CA.
