Driving West to Jamul, California

Eric & I travel west into

....  on Interstate 8 West.

We watch ATVs driving on
the Imperial Sand Dunes.

painted white along this
section of our drive.

I wonder if that has been done to provide a sharp contrast in an area with few colors.  

This Hydraulic Concrete Paver
covers two lanes.

Freshly seeded fields are

Sheep graze roadside.

Radiator Water Signs with
Tanks & Call Boxes are
common sights on this
stretch of highway.

The Radiator Water Tank has
instructions: Do Not Drink.

This is a harsh &

Wind Turbines on the ridgeline
at an elevation of about
4,000 feet above sea level

Drivers are warned of the
6% downhill grade over
the next 4 miles.

I almost missed the sign

We approach a BorderControl Station...

.... and continue west.

Exit 40 takes us to Japatul

It's a narrow two-lane road.

We watch for Horses.

This region has Horse Farms.

Street corners have numerous
Real Estate signs.

is on the left....

.... with the Pio Pico RV Resort
Campground Check-In.

Thousand Trails Campgrounds and Resorts allow incoming RVers to select from vacant campsites.

Eric & I chose Site A 32.

It has full hookups.

Besides water and sewer connections, we have 30 amp electricity.  The voltage is holding steady at 123.  Our DirecTV Dish connected to TV satellites.  The reflections on the windshield are one of the many mountains that surround Pio Pico RV Resort and the cabins across the road.  The building behind us is the Laundry.

Being surrounded by mountains, the cell phone connection at this Thousand Trails Park is very poor.  RVers need to go to one of two spots to make calls.  In case of emergency, RVers are to go to the Security Booth and report the situation to staff.

Jamul is about 8 miles north and Chula Vista is 11 miles west of this Campground.  It's frustrating to be so close to populated areas and not have reliable cell service.

Internet Service is non-existent at Pio Pico RV Resort and Campground.  Eric is paying $15.00 per week for internet access.
