Pretty Damn Nice! travel blog


Thursday, RVers started coming into the park in droves. By Friday night, the park was once again nearly full. It is obviously a favorite camping spot for nearby RVers. We spent the last few days at home, enjoying the gorgeous spring weather and the spring like scenery. After the recent rain, the grass and trees are brilliant shades of green.

We had a bunch of RVers who were camping together alongside us for the weekend. I think there were five or six rigs together. At first, we were apprehensive. Would they be up all night, playing loud music, drinking and making lots of noise? Wait a minute . . . they are old folks just like us, so ... no problem. They would be in bed early . . . and they were. While there were a few hangovers reported on Saturday morning, they were generally quiet after 10 pm on Friday and Saturday nights. That's the difference between RVers and campers in general. Old farts (aka RVers) party early and then go to bed early.

I did laundry on Friday in the perfect laundromat in the park. And there was no one else in there but me.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 49er once again and look forward to coming back in the future. It truly is one of the prettiest parks we have stayed in.

On Sunday morning, not too early, we headed out, traveling down Highway 16, out of the foothills towards Sacramento. We picked up Sunrise Blvd and headed towards Highway 50. This is a much better way than going on Highway 49 to Highway 50, which is extremely narrow and windy. Once we hit Highway 50, we headed north to the next exit, which is Hazel. This is the back way that John is used to taking to Uncle Steve and Auntie Squeak's home in Lincoln.

I have mentioned before how much we love these two and enjoy visiting with them. They have a lovely home in a Del Webb complex. They are always so happy to see us and we enjoy their company immensely.

I got to go shopping today with Auntie Squeak while John spent time with Uncle Steve. We went to Costco and WinCo. I was able to replenish my Costco favs. Most things at Costco are way too big for our rig, but there are a few items that are good bargains (vitamins and supplements) and are just good because of the Costco brand (albacore tuna). I can buy a boneless pork roast that I cut into three huge roasts for $18 ... what a deal!!!

We are parked in the street in front of Steve and Squeak's house for three nights. We are not hooked up to electric or water. I am trying to run the lights for a minimum amount of time at night, but it is hard for me to go to bed with the chickens like John does. I am so used to staying up really late.

--

The kitties are also confused. They have been sleeping and eating more than usual, but then there isn't much more for them to do. We are inside the house visiting so the kitties have been left alone in the rig most of the time, except at night.

--

But it is only for a few short days, so we will all survive just fine. We are just hoping that the rig will start on Wednesday morning when we get ready to leave. This time, I have not run the radio ao hopefully, the batteries will do their thing.

Keep fingers crossed for us.
