Since we didn’t do anything noteworthy in San Diego, I’m counting this place as the beginning of the West Coast Tour. And it’s not exactly on the coast, but it is north.
Antelope Valley Fairgrounds RV Park is a converted parking lot with full RV hookups, but does not belong to either of our clubs. However, it’s only $30 a night. It is right on the fairgrounds property so if you were going to some Spin and Marty Cattle Show, this might be the place to stay. Or, if you were going to the William J. Fox Airfield for the LA County Air Show, you would stay here. No grass, not at all dog-friendly, but close to the air show which was, at best, a three star affair.
We went to an air show in Clear Lake, TX, when we lived there, that was way cooler. And this one had just one vendor selling food. The line was over an hour long. Poor execution. One star off. The planes were good, just no Blue Angels or Thunderbirds. Take off another star.
The next day we went to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, wondering what-the-heroin this was all about. Certainly nothing on March 24th, and from a quick check on 4/18, a dud this year. But the web site’s picture is pretty.
On Monday it was off to the coast where the airborne creatures were more interesting.
