I started the year off in New Mexico figuring it would be like the year before. I get a little isolated out there by myself. After New Mexico I went to California for my virtual job. I met some great people there. New friends. Had great conversations and still talk to them today.
While in California I spent a week in Slab City where I met a group of snowbirds I hope to see again this next year. They welcomed me instantly. We had campfires every night. Chili Bob took me and a Slab full timer friend on a tour of the area. The morning I left we all went to a local restaurant and had breakfast together.
After my time in California I went to Yuma Arizona to visit Bob and Julie who I had met while working at Amazon.com that fall. I stayed with them for a week at their RV park. I fit right into their spot. I was working virtually but when I wasn't working we were hanging out getting Date Shakes, visiting the old prison, cruising around the area and playing cards.
