Five Things to Do While Staying in Borrego Springs

We spent three weeks in Borrego-Springs, our first official stop for Project Escape. It could not have been a better location for us. Besides all the great stuff we did in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, we got out and explored beyond the park, even heading to San Diego for a day.  Our plan had been to head to Joshua Tree for a few days as well, but quite frankly we were enchanted by Borrego … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – An Afternoon at Seley Ranch

During our first week in Borrego Springs, Mr. Misadventures and I were immensely enjoying the local grapefruit. At least once a day on our way in or out of Borrego Springs, we drove by Seley Ranch. By the end of our first week, I was very interested about this farm so I reached out to them to see if they were amenable to a visit and interview. You see I was extremely curious about these farms … [Read more...]

Cruising around the Salton Sea

The Salton Sea story is a long one.  It ebbs and flows with many victories and defeats. There is a very detailed explanation about its natural history on Wikipedia, I won't repeat it here.  There is a briefer and more interesting version of its cultural history with great vintage photos on the Salton Sea Museum site. The truth is, this place is fascinating. There have been railroad towns, a … [Read more...]

Seven Things to Do in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

It was a total fluke that we found the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We were Googling "RV parks in San Diego" and The Springs at Borrego RV Resort, where we ended up staying, came up. Which led us to Anza-Borrego.  Given that it is the largest park in the continuous 48 states (there must be something bigger in Alaska...) I find it odd that so many people (I checked) have never heard of … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #3 – Borrego Springs

Surprise! We're in Las Cruces, New Mexico! Our original plan was to leave for Santa Fe on Sunday, but because of snow that was supposed to be coming through (a huge thing to avoid with RVs) we left on Thursday for Las Cruces staying overnight in Tucson to take a more southern, milder weather route.  We shuffled a few reservations and will spend five days in Las Cruces exploring the famous white … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #2 – Borrego Springs

Yes, it is odd to have rusted dinosaurs randomly placed around a town, but that's what we've got at Borrego Springs! Dinosaurs, saber tooth tigers, wooly mammoths, velociraptors on top of the horses, turtles, camels and bighorn sheep. All created by the late Ricardo Broceda.  Makes for fun photos. During our second week in Borrego Springs and the second week of Project Escape, we have visited … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #1 – Borrego Springs

Last Friday, January 15th was the official start of Project Escape, our year long adventure to escape corporate America; the expensive and crowded state of California; and reorient our life a bit. January 1 would have been a much cooler date to start, but with our Thanksgiving trip to France (to explain to my mother-in-law what the hell we would be doing the next year); an unexpected return trip … [Read more...]
