Back in SoCal

We moved back to Southern California to visit our family and prepare for our Central Coast Wine Tour. We are meeting our friends on 4/12 at Flying Flags RV Resort in Buellton, CA. Our friends are 3 couples from the Monaco Northwest group that we meant at rallies last summer. Two of the couples spent the winter in AZ, and one spent the winter in Indio, CA. Of course, being active RVers, they moved around the southern areas exploring different areas. The last place we saw them was in Quartzite, AZ, in January.

The first few days we were back we stayed with Linda's Mom, Lois, in her driveway. We also saw John's mother, Linda's sister Donna, and our niece Valerie and her little girl Iris. There's a lot of excitement in the air as Michael & Kathie are expecting their first boy in April, and Rick & Valerie are expecting their second girl in May.

On Sunday we moved close to Santa Barbara to complete the plans for the tour and get the agenda finished. We stay at a Thousand Trails park, Rancho Oso. It's a beautiful park, but it's located over a high steep pass, down a forest service road, and finally a one way road into the park. We were worried when we got there because it was windy and the daily high was in the 50s. At the end of the week it started warming up, and the forecast is for nice weather for the week.

John visited some wineries and setup the tours and tastings. Linda made reservations and planned meals. It's the first time we've done this type of tour, so we want it to go well. We'll give you a daily update after the tour's over to let you know what we planned.

So everyone gets here tomorrow. Wish us luck on this new adventure.
