SlabCity USA and The Salton Sea

Above all this part of California is not a resort and SlabCity or the Salton Sea is no exception. Details in SlabCity-USA-Salton-Sea-Bob Davis Podcast 1047.

Slab City Gets A Lot Of Media

Firstly I have seen articles about Slab City USA for years.

Hot Springs

Even more a person appeared in our camp in Arizona recently and insisted we go to Slab City ‘if only for the hot springs‘.

New Experience

Secondly I have never experienced the hot springs.

Short Distance

And since high fuel prices are slowing everyone’s roll we thought heading a short distance over to SlabCity USA was a good plan.

Not A Resort

Most importantly Slab City itself is not a resort.

Of course there are some RV campgrounds.

America’s Last Free Place

But most of the people at Slab City are not your average RV Life Community.

Slabbies

Certainly the so called ‘Slabbies’ are my kind of people.

Don’t Bring The Million Dollar Rig…Or Bring It

On the other hand they might not be your kind of people if you’re rig is an eight hundred thousand dollar coach.

Salton Sea

In addition there is the whole Salton Sea experience.

Mistake Lake

For example The Salton Sea itself was created by mistake.

Mecca For 1960’s Tourists Is Dying

Moreover the sea is dying although it was a mecca for tourists back in the day.

Which is kind of cool.

Details in SlabCity-USA-Salton-Sea-Bob Davis Podcast 1047.

Leave Some Attractions

Meanwhile I did not visit the so called Slab City Monument for some of the other attractions here.

We Always Come Back

In short I have learned over the years to leave some experiences because we always come back.

Novelty

And of course I want my travel experiences to have some novelty to them as time goes on.

Partial To Hot Springs

Further I am kind of partial to the hot springs.

Finally a little primer and what you’ll see and some of the people you will meet if you’re going to visit SlabCity USA.

Travel These Days

To sum up I am taking shorter trips as I travel these days.

Deeper Experiences

On the other hand I am seeing and getting to know places I want to come back to.

Isn’t that what it’s all about?

(Editor’s Note: Every now and then I make a silly mistake. I don’t know why but I said Slab City is “Something like six hundred THOUSAND acres”, which would make it very large indeed, even for a former Marine Base. Slab City USA is in fact something like 632 acres. Still pretty large, right?)
