Palm Springs - Swing baby!

My wife and I just bought a house in the Palm Springs area. I will be spending most of the winter out there doing my normal job and some work on the house. Plus, year around dirt riding! Swing baby your platinum.

Nice. Palm Springs will most likely not be our final destination. It is an area where we can afford a second home. When my wife is ready to move full time, I think we will be looking at CA and southern Oregon.

I visited Portland for the first time last May and I liked it. It obviously has its rainy days but, it had a great vibe and outdoor lifestyle. You can have a beautiful home with land at a good price and still be within 30 minutes of downtown. Plus Washougal is 20 minutes away.

just drove past palm springs on my way to Glamis, the worlds greatest sandbox , and ocotillio wells, 2 of the worlds greatest off road parks , you will love it there, im out there regularly during the winter, watch out for trucks, buggies, and sandrails when you ride these places, if you want an expert guide to Glamis let me know, you will need a paddle tire

Nice - I am looking at a 2nd pad as well down in the Islands.........just have to decide now between Rock, Stoney or Blue.

Now that I am back in town, there will be an adjustment to next year's west coast swing. I will not come back to IL until at least mid-April.
