It dawned on me the other day as I was doing my morning neighborhood walk just how many ATVs I was seeing. Wow. It used to be a few would be present but this year it has literally been overwhelming—nearly every lot is sporting at least one and sometimes several. Has the character of RVing changed here in the past three years? Seems so.
More lovely homes have been built and I assume the RV crowd is now also younger and more active than ever before. There are even more squatters in the nearby desert whereas before folks were hardly ever found boondocking there. Most of them also are carrying off road vehicles.
Between the RV off roaders and the weekend crowd that comes from San Diego and Phoenix to play in the sand dunes west of Yuma it does indeed seem as though we are now the ultimate playground.
