But where to go that isn't below freezing at night? After checking the forecasts and maps, I thought, "Hmmm, what about the Long Term Visitor Area near Holtville, California? It has a hot spring. So even if the weather turned too chilly, I could sit in the spring and get warm, clean and wrinkly. After all, this photo I found looks nice, right?
Well, the place was too crowded (ugh, generators), too close to the freeway, and too close to a power plant. Not our kind of place, especially at $40 for two weeks (even though that pass is valid at any of the other LTVAs in the area).
I called Lou, interrupted his lunch, and gave him my report. "So, I'm going to go back to American Girl Mine Road to scout a place for all of us."
