About nine months ago, we became Escapees members. Those that are full-time RVers, and many who are RV enthusiasts, are very aware of Escapees RV Club, based out of Livingston, Texas. As advertised, Escapees is ” A Total Support Network for All RVers”. The Club provides a whole range of services, and also has Co-Op and other relationships with a number of private RV parks. One of these parks is Jojoba Hills, just outside of Temecula in Southern California. This is a private 55+ RV community available to Escapees members to rent on a space available basis. And it is our home for the next month.
We arrived on Friday a bit later than planned. Because the office was closed by then, we had arranged to stay in the boondocking area ($5 per day for members) for our first night. So, Saturday was moving day into the park to our “permanent” site. The park, developed in the early 1990s, is in a setting of rolling hills and boulders, many as big as buildings. Complemented by meticulous landscaping, 6 small ponds and a couple of waterfalls with contemplation benches, as well as babbling brooks, the park is quite beautiful and peaceful. But the really neat benefit while living here, are the amenities that include a wood and metal shop, sewing room, billiard room, a near olympic size swimming pool, two spa/jacuzzis, mens and womens sauna rooms, a fitness center, a library, three separately located laundramats and more.
Pictured below, from left, are our new found dinner companions and friends Mike, Denise, Nikki and Joe…and Sharon.
All in all, not a bad start to this full-time RV lifestyle.
