On Christmas Eve, we left Burbank and moved over to Cougar Buttes Dispersed Camping in Johnson Valley OHV Area.
We were joined by our dear friends Kelly & Dave who we hadn’t seen in two years. As full-time RVers, we usually don’t have campfires, but for some reason this week we enjoyed them almost every night.
Even though I had time off from work, I found myself working every day this week. Finally on Thursday, I insisted we relax, so Brian and I had a “spa afternoon” in the trailer.
By Thursday evening, hundreds of RVs rolled in for the long weekend and our camp turned into a dustbowl, so Friday mid-day we moved on.
