We took a quick trip to the desert -- boondocking at Kelso Dunes. Here's a link to our blog post:

Too many people think the desert is just a mass of nothingness. 85% of SoCal residence have never visited this this area. 4 wheeling out there is an incredible eye opener.

I like to get out all year. In the winter that means the desert. It is part of an outdoor mental health plan. There is plenty of room and no need to be near anyone. I avoid campgrounds. Boondocking is the way.

For the low desert, I like to leave the RV at home to better negotiate the turkey trails and rough roads. We use cots to get above the rocks and reptiles. No tent so we can see the stars. Simple food, a couple of chairs in the shade of the truck. All of that space and you can see 100 miles.

Careful there, you're about to exceed your fun quotient for the year.
