After spending a week in Bakersfield, CA with Tom and Lori, we headed southeast to Quartzsite, Az for our RV upgrades and warmer temps.
We were so busy this summer with work, our daughters wedding and the final renos to our house, Myron didn’t have time to upgrade the shackles on the 5th wheel trailer as he had planned. Our 2014 Cougar 337FLS came with MORryde CRE3000 Suspension, however the factory bushings and shackles are very light duty, and with the amount of traveling we will be doing he wanted to beef them up with MORryde’s Heavy Duty Shackle Kit Upgrade.
Laughlin to Quartzsite, or Laughlin to Palm Springs, or Laughlin to Yuma………….
Since our time was up in Laughlin, NV and the temp was starting to drop, we decided it was time to make some tracks and head further south. We were having a tough time deciding where we wanted to go next, when our friends Tom and Lori called to say they discovered they had a few issues with their 5th wheel. So we headed to Bakersfield, CA to help them out!
Check out Tom and Lori’s blog posts below to see what Myron has been up to!
We decided to take a road trip and head out to a former mining town, now turned lively ghost town!
We drove through the Black Mountains of Mojave County, not far from where we stayed in Laughlin, NV along historical route 66.
The Main Street is where all the action is, small stores, sidewalk vendors, Restaurant and Saloon.
Wild Burros are wandering and panhandling throughout the streets.
If your timing is right you will even witness a bank robbery and a good old fashioned gunfight take place.
Parking is limited, so you may not want to take your trailer or larger rigs as it is difficult to find a place to park.
If you do bring your pets, be very careful as the Burro’s have been known to kick them. We have a pet stroller we use for Rider and of course Miss Bella gets her usual royal treatment of being carried.
