Joshua Tree - Dec '15

This was another nice gathering of the Italians from San Diego:  Franco, Eric, Bruno, Paul, Dale, Michelle and I.


Most of them have some association with fine restaurants so if you ever get invited to one DO NOT TURN IT DOWN!  :)


They are staying today and coming back tomorrow.  I had only time for one day.  We got there yesterday around 1pm and found Paul who had been there since the day earlier.


Got the tent set up

The rest of the crew showed up later and set up their stuff.  Eric has a hammock set up he loves.

Eric brought some old oak staves from a barrel that was like 50 years old or something.  It burned really well.  Very COLD out so that helped.

The ride into Jumbo Rocks campground

My very own parking spot!  The ranger said only "2 vehicles per site" so I hid mine in the tent.

Video too!


You can see the first few videos from my iPhone are fine but then when it goes to the GoPro you can see the lens is all scratched.  Need to get that fixed!


Last night's menu was:


Marinated pork loin with pasta fagioli.  Dessert was apple pie.

Drink: Prosecco then a dessert wine.


Breakfast this morning: 

grilled potatoes with egg, cheese, oinions and leftover diced pork loin.


Oh man, great people! Awesome
