Yesterday was a much shorter driving day than Friday was, just 113 miles. It was shorter in miles, but it wasn’t a quick trip. We left the Elks lodge in Eureka about 9:30, and stopped for fuel at a Texaco station a few blocks away that had a separate diesel fuel island, and looked like […]

We said goodbye to Greg and Jan, made a quick stop at the dump station, and left the Lake Minden Thousand Trails a little before 10 a.m. yesterday. We took State Route 99 north about eighteen miles to Yuba City, where we picked up State Route 20, and followed it west 112 miles to U.S. […]

Today is our last day here at the Escapees Park of the Sierras, and we’ve had a wonderful time playing tourist in a part of California that we’ve never seen before, visiting with some old friends here at the campground, and checking out the local restaurants. In the two weeks we’ve been here, we’ve been […]

We never know where our next adventure is going to come from, but we always seem to find them. And occasionally, they find us! The other day, we were visiting with our friends Rick and Laurie Phillips, whom we first met when we all were new fulltimers, a lot of years ago. Rick and Laurie […]

We left the Park of the Sierras about 9 a.m. yesterday morning and drove about 95 miles southeast to Sequoia National Park. Well, actually, Greg drove, because he likes to drive, and I like to sit back and enjoy the ride. Well, I like to enjoy the ride, and nag him about his driving habits. […]

There are no words to describe Yosemite National Park. Words like beautiful, awesome, spectacular, and breathtaking just don’t come anywhere close to doing this natural wonderland justice. I know my words can’t come close! Fortunately, Miss Terry took over 400 digital photographs during our visit to the park yesterday, and they will give you some […]

Albert Hammond Lied

You may not know who Albert Hammond is, but if you ever meet him, don’t believe a word he says. The man is a liar! No, Mr. Hammond is not an RV salesman, nor is he peddling campground memberships. Albert Hammond is a British singer/songwriter perhaps best known for his 1972 hit It Never Rains […]

Breaking The Cycle

Yesterday I managed to break the nasty cycle of getting up way too early in the morning, and I think I may be on the road to recovery. We slept in, then stayed in bed snuggling and having some quiet time together. These are the moments I cherish most between Terry and I. We finally […]
