I enjoyed meeting people in person who I'd previously met online or through their blogs. And, I also appreciated connecting again to those that I had seen on my earlier travels. On my way into Quartzsite, I took one of these friend's open invitation to stay at her place (thanks VJ) and met up with one of my brothers for a couple of hours in Yorba Linda (nice treat). At the RTR, I even met Jennifer and Johnny whose web site I use to find free or low-cost campsites.

I arrived home last night, It was a good 3 weeks, and now I'm glad to see John and the animals.
Here is a short video of the Elephant Seals
