Back into town with windshield wipers flapping we stopped at Calicos for a coffee and muffin to go. Had to hand the wrapped muffin back when I realized I only had enough money on me for a coffee. Took us for a drive around the south end of Borrego Springs taking a few photos along the church road. And then we saw a rainbow.

Heading out of town we took another familiar desert road checking a few more RV spots and it was out here off the beaten path in the wind and rain we were suddenly attacked by a herd of ferocious Dinosaurs. It was a narrow escape for us and at one point we had to hastily exit the Jeep and make a run for it hiding behind a small cactus low to the ground.
|JEEPING THROUGH RAINY DESERT I SPOTTED SOMETHING LARGE MOVING UP AHEAD ON THE LEFT|
|SAW MOVEMENT BEHIND THAT OCOTILLO|
|OH GEEEEEZZZZ WE'RE IN BIG TROUBLE NOW|
|WE BETTER MAKE A RUN FOR IT PHEEBS|
|OH CRAP THERE'S TWO MORE|
|OH-NO THERE GOES THE JEEP!!|
|WATCH OUT FOR THOSE SHARP CLAWS PHEEBS|
|WHEWWWWW CLOSE CALL|
|HURRY, WE'LL HIDE BEHIND THIS CACTUS UNTIL THEY'RE GONE|
|LET'S MAKE A BREAK FOR THE JEEP DAD WHILE HE'S LOOKING THE OTHER WAY|
|RUN PHEEBS RUN I THINK HE'S SPOTTED US|
|OKAY DAD PEDAL TO THE METAL LET'S GET OUT OF HERE|
Back into the Jeep again we were able to finally put some distance between us guys and those fearsome Dinos. Quick as we could we made our way back to the highway and our rig at the Legion not far away. With all the running Pheebs and I had to do we had worked up quite an appetite so Kelly whipped up some scrambled eggs. Following that she decided to take the Jeep and head into Borrego to check out a few of her favorite places.
|WE REALLY LIKED OUR SPOT, BUT...…...|
|WHEN WE CAME HERE A COUPLE DAYS THEE WERE ONLY 3 RV'S IN THE WHOLE PARKING LOT......NOT ANY MORE|
|THE GUYS JUST KEPT ROLLING IN|
Finishing up with the tanks I parked the rig at a different spot near a Tamarisk tree, put the slides out again and waited for Kelly to return, if she could find us. Of course our big Canadian flag decals stick right out and she saw where I had moved to right away. Lucky for me the spot I picked was suitable and upon her return she didn't make me move the rig somewhere else.
|OUR (HO-HUM) NEW SPOT|
|WE MOVED FROM OVER THERE TO THE LEFT SOMEWHERE|
Through pouring rain late this afternoon with temps hoovering around 45F I headed for Borrego's new library to take advantage of their speedy internet to finish putting my post together. A warming trend is forecasted to begin Friday with a week from today predicted to be a sunny hot 81 degrees. Too hot for us of course so we may have to head for loftier elevations as the higher temperatures of a southern California Spring begin to settle into the area.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Mahatma Gandhi often walked barefoot which produced an impressive set of callouses on his feet. He also ate very little, making him rather frail and with his odd diet he often suffered from bad breath. This made him a super calloused fragile mystic hexed with halitosis.
