Anza Borrego Desert Camping - Feb 15, 2015

Wanted to share some pictures of camping in the Anza Borrego Desert this weekend. Daytime temperature yesterday was 85 F with a light breeze. The desert floor is green from the rains two weeks ago and we should see wild flowers soon. Saw a 4 month old Escape 17' yesterday camping about a mile away. We have a wine picnic hike planned today at Arroyo Mud Caves in the badlands followed by frozen margaritas and a fish grill and asian stir fry veggies in the evening. Gotta love the February weather out here!

Nice. More about your solar, please. How many watts? Do you have to manually tilt the panels? What size inverter? Thanks

Also, is it safe there to leave your rig while you're gone? What type of hitch lock do you have?

Not many, Mexican food is an American thing. Our most common restaurant food is either Chinese or sushi.

And lots of diff. varieties of Mexican food in the U.S. - TexMex, New Mexican Mex, Mex Mex, Creole Mex, French Mex, Chinese Mex, My Ex's Mex, OK, I just made a few of those up, but they could exist for all I know...

OK, back on track. Never been to Borrego, but lots of folks say it's great, and those temps are perfect.

Oh man, that stuff looks like it could clog a few arteries, for sure! That means it would taste really good, eh?
