On The Road Again

We’re finally back on the road in our Motorhome.  We started with a Grandson fix.  We stayed at Wilderness Lakes in Menifee, close to Suzanne’s and Matt’s house.  Here’s some of the latest photos:





Needless to say, we’re going to miss the little guy.

After our short visit we headed North on Hwy 99 to Turlock, our old home town.  We boondocked in our good friends, Bob & Kathy Whitehead, yard next to their red barn.  Bob is well know as “Red Barn Bob” of geocaching fame.  In fact while we there Bob & I went out geocaching and found 9 out of 10 caches.  If you’re interested in what geocaching is, click on the link:

We had many special meals, had great conversations, and just had a great time with our friends.  It was so great to see everyone.  It has been way to long since we saw them.  We even go a chance to play Skip-Bo, and as usual Bob won with a lot of help from Rosemarie.

We continued North on Sunday through some rain, but luckily no wind.  Our goal was Weed, CA, and we arrived there about 4:30.  We found a nice RV park using our Passport America membership.  That gave us half off the normal price.  It’s called Friendly RV Park, and it was off I-5, but far enough so there was no road noise.  We got a pull through site so that we didn’t need to unhook the car.  It’s right at the base of Mt. Shasta, but we couldn’t see it for the clouds and rain.

It rained most of the night, and it got down to 38 degrees, but cleared up in the morning and we could see the mountain:



As you can tell, it’s very cold and the snow level is very low.  We hope we don’t have any problems going over the Siskiyou Mountains.

Today we should make it into Oregon, where we lived for 13 years.  We’re really looking forward to it, even thought it’s rainy and cold.
