Headed out this morning with two things in mind. First I wanted to stop at the office of Jojoba Hills to pick up a packet to apply to become a member. For those that might be interested, as an Escapee member, it costs $1,100 to be put on the waiting list for a site at this Co-op park. $100 of that is not refundable. I’ll fill out the form and turn it in on Monday. I’ll probably be number 21 on the waiting list. How long will it take to get to the top of the list? Who knows, but I’m hoping it won’t be too long. It could be that some of the folks ahead of me on the list aren’t interested in making the commitment in the near future. They have the option of turning down any site offered three times before being moved to the bottom of the waiting list.
It’s a little complicated, but my plan is to take any site offered. In my opinion, none of the sites are awful, and once a member, I’ll have future options to move to a site more to my liking. These are really not year-round sites, and I plan to still travel and volunteer each summer should I get a site here.
With that taken care of, I drove to the city of Temecula to do some grocery shopping. It’s about 12 miles away. Some folks don’t like to drive that far for a gallon of milk, but I found it a short hop down the road compared to many of the refuges I’ve stayed at. It did seem to me though, that California drivers all seem to be in a great rush to get wherever they are going, and really like to tailgate. It’s a two lane highway, very curvy and hilly, and I got the impression that most wanted to speed along way over the 55 mph limit. Maybe it’s not quite so bad during the week.
Once I got back home, Emma and I sat outside for a while. I was playing around on my I-Pad when someone walked by with their dog. I have Emma’s leash tied to my chair. Emma hopped up to let the passing dog know that this was her territory. Grrr. The other dog started barking, and so did Emma. As I grabbed the leash to haul her back in, the I-Pad flew off of my lap and crashed onto the concrete patio.
But this is what it really looks like. It still works fine, but I can’t really use the touch screen without cutting my fingers. I sure don’t know if you can just have the screen panel replaced or not. Guess I’ll have to find a Geek Squad in Temecula tomorrow to find out. I was not a happy camper at this point. If you know if it’s toast or not, I’d appreciate your input.
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
