Wilderness Lakes Preserve Thousand Trails Update

One of the things I enjoy about Wilderness Lakes Thousand Trails in Menifee, CA is walking our yorkie around the campground.

During our walks I get to

  • take pictures of the birds & ducks
  • see all the fun gadgets other campers have on display
  • meet interesting folks

Wilderness Lakes never disappoints me

I was surprised by the teeth on this one.

 I met campers from Texas, St Louis & California this week some folks lived in 5th wheels, vintage trailers, travel trailer & big diesel motorhomes. One of the campers has been fulltiming for 16 years. I hope I’m blessed with full timing at least that long.

That’s it for my walks this week.

Happy Travels!

accident, family get-together & good conversations

I was cutting tortilla swirls for a family get-together and cut my finger. Ouch! I had to dump the whole batch of tortilla swirls since I bled all over them and buy an apple/grape fruit tray for the get-together.

My finger healed nicely after I was patched up with the Shaw Family First Aid Kit. Kevin’s brother-in-law cooked sumptuous filet mignon for the family. Also, he’s a collector of Raider paraphernalia everywhere I looked a raider sign or stuffed animal was in the room.

We had some nice conversations about RVing with Kevin’s parents. Kevin’s sister & niece shared their secrets to living within a budget with us. Those girls know how to find a good bargain.

Moving Out!

I started to feel like I had to get out of the house so Kevin and I moved our RV over to Pechanga RV Park most of the time we stayed at Pechanga RV Park using our Passport America membership. (Sun-Wed its $25.00 a night unless it’s a special time) After, Wednesday we’re moving over to the overflow area near the Pechanga market. It’s a black top area for boondocking.

This weekend we were able to clear everything but the refrigerator out of the house. Kevin’s sister is buying our refrigerator and is picking it up in a few days. It is a good feeling moving out of the house and into our RV. Its one more step towards fulltime retirement traveling. Kevin will continue working so we’re staying in RV Parks near his work.

Pechanga RV Park is a quiet park. We’ve met a few golfers in the spa and chatted with fellow dog owners. I see several people relaxing in their lounge chairs outside. The birds sing to us every morning although I’ve yet to identify them. :)

It’s a good start to our new RV lifestyle.

Happy Fulltiming!
