Mortimer Turtle is a small mobile home. Morty sets out with RV Pilot Jim Kelly and Navigator Lynne to explore the USA in bite-sized chunks.
In between trips, we share some everyday experience highlights while Morty patiently waits in the driveway.
Marking our one-month milestone, we are by most measures, due to be turning around. It seems like the weather at Yosemite, is just a little too nasty for this trip. After three days relaxing in the California desert, Morty was feeling the need to roll out some east-bound miles. We checked and rechecked the AAA book listings for openings on Sunday in El Centro or Winterhaven, but none were to be had. So we started looking in Arizona, and found a modern, clean and mostly paved park called Las Quintas Oasis RV Resort. Here the discounted rate of $36 per night gets full hook-ups, including cable TV, WiFi, heated swimming and spa pools.
