OK...I've taken the liberty of offering you a link to the Lucerne Valley...the weather in April will be spectacular...check out this website and keep in mind that you'll be within an hour of the Joshua Tree National Park...(yes, that JT park but not THE Tree...)

The Lucerne Valley is about an hour and a quarter northeast of the BAW's; I work in that area quite often so when you get into town, give us a hollar!

Thanks Mr BAW!
I've been checking out the website.......i was looking at some lodging options. I will definately want to catch up......I'm not going all that way to miss out seeing some of the Blue crack clan from the US.
It will be 9 years since i last saw my Uncle........not sure how my mum's going to go,she is nervous as all hell, Mum has not even flown out of NSW let alone Oz since the day she migrated from Ireland!

Nice. It looks like you'll be near San Diego too. That's one of my favorite cities in the US. Cali in April is awesome.

"Near" is a bit debatable in this case. I live in San Diego. If I were to drive up to Lucerne Valley the one way trip would come up to be about 148 miles (2.5 hours). It's certainly doable however there are parts that can snag you with traffic.

Well, she'll be nearer to San Diego than I am. I think SD is worth a 2.5 hour trip. No?

No idea where Lucerne Valley is. And I'm from S.Calif.
Safe travels!

And we're having summertime weather here right now

Rookies!!!

fly so high...not that it means anything to you but it will to the "locals" Lucerne Valley is 25 miles due east of the I-15 freeway in Victorville...so when you kids see the Victorville/Apple Valley exits, look east and within that deserted 25 mile range is the Lucerne Valley...

My uncle IS a farrier! You are welcome to join me.......it will be nice to hear a familiar accent....they talk funny over there

Looks like we will prolly be shacking up on my uncle's property.....so his wife will have to know that we are coming 'cause of monetary reasons (around AUS$8000 just to fly 4 people,plus expenses the credit card is going to cop a floggin')... it's a BIG SEEEEEEKRIT that we are coming , my uncle CANNOT find out.
Not looking forward to the saving part for this trip! But soooooo looking forward to seeing them......it's been too long!!!!

Write me in a year from now, we could arrange for a few of us to meet you at one of the nearby restaurants...plenty of nice new ones along I-15 and Highway 18...like I mentioned, I work in that area often and I'm numb to the drive...its a pretty area during the spring....
