Recently, my family and I took a trip down to Ocotillo Wells, CA. The first/last time I had been down there was pre-baby with my husband and his parents. I had fallen in love with the beautiful desert landscape, the quirky desert towns, and, of course, off-roading. The speed! The adventure! Going places off the beaten path that I would never seen any other way. Truly amazing!
This last time we ALL went. Me, my husband, my three year old, my in-laws, and the Great Grandparents, as well as some family friends. There were 9 of us.
We spent the day there riding and hanging out at our basecamp, a 2000-something Weekend Warrior.
Hey, it’s a classic.
Hanging out with my family and friends out in the beautiful desert was just wonderful, but the most impressive event of the day has to be the great ride that our 92 year old Great Grandpa Bill took in the side-by-side.
That’s right, 92. He was able to enjoy being out in the desert with his family because we had a comfortable place for him and Great Grandma (did I mention she is 86 years young?), the rest of us adults, and a 3 three year old, too! The toyhauler provided us with plenty seating and a bed to take naps in, cold beverages, food, a toilet, shade. Everything we could need, we had.
It was a priceless adventure for all of us.
