This was our third time ending and starting the year on a small patch of barren land in the southern California desert just outside the tiny town of Borrego Springs, Calif.
The first year we hung out with one other Airstreaming couple we we had recently met. We had dinner and barely made it to midnight. The next year we joined a medium sized group of nomads for a rocking party around a fire complete music and giant sparklers. Then last year we were in Florida and missed what was quickly becoming an annual gathering of mostly working-age nomads for a desert New Year’s Eve celebration. This year we made it back west in time to join a massive group of nomads for a pretty epic New Year’s Eve party desert style.
When we arrived on the Dec. 26 there were about a dozen RVs already in place and we found a nice spot to ourselves on the corner of the group.
Over the next week the rigs keep rolling in, and by New Year’s Eve the group had grown to around 40 RVs, including 22 Airstreams and at least half a dozen full-time families. Here’s a great drone shot of the group taken by a fellow traveler. Can you spot us? (Hint, look for the orange kayaks on the truck.)
