Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

The China Ranch Date Farm

Somewhere near the southern portion of Death Valley, in the Mojave Desert, lies an oasis of green, plan trees, and dates.  Located near Tecopa, California, China Ranch Date farm is found after a winding, cavernous journey through rock and gravel.   A tight squeeze, so leave your rigs behind.   

As you exit the dry, rocky roadway, you enter into a beautiful, sun-filled, green oasis.  First stop, the gift shop and café…get yourself date shake, try some of the many types of dates they grow there, enjoy a walk through the gift shop. 

Then, take a walk through the date farm to see the different types of dates grown.  Peaceful and beautiful and educational.  Had no idea dates grew on palm-like trees.
