Jun 1, 2016 - "Disneyland for Adults"?

Aguanga, California is just a short drive from Temecula, California. Temecula has been called Disneyland for adults, as the wine country of southern California. There are dozens (seriously) dozens of wineries and vineyards in the area. This area is perfect us, as you know we do wineries! We visited a couple and stocked up our wine supply. At Wilson Creek Winery & Vineyards, they have flavored sparkling wines, the coconut sparkling wine was a favorite of Chris. One of the wineries we visited and toured was Callaway Vineyards, which was...

Mar 17, 2016 - Jojoba Hills SKP RV resort in Aguanga, CA

Left Mission Bay before our month was out and headed to Jojoba Hills SKP RV resort in Aguanga…15 miles east of Temecula. We had to stay in Boon docking (4 nights) as all the lots were full. Got a great tour of the park from Bud. I got to play pickle ball for 3 days and even had a chance to try the pickle ball tutor…a machine that spits out balls really quick and hard…great fun. I met up with Isobel and Doug at the courts, made friends with Julia, and had a lesson with John. Before long, we would leave this park because we could not get a...

Jan 16, 2016 - Jojoba Hills RV Resort

Well we arrived yesterday after a 10 day, 2600 mile trip from Wauchula Florida to Aguanga California. We are exhausted but happy. Beautiful place. So many activities. So quiet. And we are about an hour from our granddaughter, Audrey, who lives in Dana Point. This place will serve us well as a part time home base in the winter. Still planning to travel in the summer.

The Bright Side

Jan 1, 2016 - Aguanga, CA

We leff home on New Years Day and stayed with Rick and Virgie Gavern at the SKP park in Aguanga, or Johoba Hills. We spent one we and were able to go to the movies twice, a winnery, out to dinner, dinner at Rick and Virgies house and dinner at our house. We took a tour of the park. We are not interested to buying into Jojoba Hills, but if for some reason we were forced to sell the house in Ramona, we would probably buy a lot in Jojoba Hillls. It is the best rv park we have ever been in. Buy in is about $30,000, but if you give up your lot...

Apr 23, 2015 - Inland North San Diego County

Heading for Aguanga, inland and north of Oceanside. There is a Escapees Co-Op Park where you buy your lot and can improve it to your liking. They also have transient RV parking, or if you know someone who owns their spot there, they can reserve a vacant lot for you. So I had called our friends that own one for the winter months, and they got us in the park for a few days. We traveled through the mountains and hills, past orchards and interesting metal structures up on the hill tops. We got a lovely spot with a great view of Mount Palomar...

Feb 25, 2015 - Jojoba Hills RV Resort

Last week we arrived in Aguanga, CA and checked into the Jojoba Hills RV Resort. An Escapee co-op park that we have had on our list to check out for several years. While this is the most expensive park in the Escapee system, it is worth every cent. The lots are spacious, actually oversized and nearly every one has a view. The park was developed 25 years ago entirely with volunteer labor. They have an excellent water source, which is critical in southern California. They have an artesian well that is more than abundant. The water is so soft,...

Dream On

Mar 12, 2013 - Jojoba Hills

We had a fun time, in between our San Diego stay and our month with Peter's family, in Temecula. We were delighted to reconnect with our friends Izzy and Carol Avila whom we went to church with when we lived in San Diego. One of our most interesting tours was at the Temecula Olive Oil Company. They are really passionate about olive oil and growing olives in general. The owner is extemely knowledgable (Thom Curry is certified by the International Olive Oil Council as a Master Taster and sits on the California Olive Oil Council's Taste Panel)...

Feb 15, 2013 - escapee

Since we retired and started RV'ing for long periods of time we've belonged to Escapees. This organization was formed by and for full time RV'ers. We use their mail forwarding service and have attended one of their rallies. They also have a network of reasonably priced RV parks, mostly in off-the-beaten-track parts of the country, which members use as a home base. They purchase reasonably priced lots and can get the purchase price back when they decide to leave. The ones we've stayed in before have a combination of member purchased sites...

Sep 30, 2012 - The Final Lap to Jojoba

Saturday, September 15 we departed Meadow Lake Resort – a time-share exchange - for the week-long home stretch back to Jojoba. Meadow Lake is a lovely development with a beautiful golf course and easy proximity to Glacier National Park. It was a good stopping place to prepare for the journey south; as Lynda said, “The horse (me) is heading for the barn!” This means that sightseeing along the way would be brief and limited to our (my) planned route. We first headed to Eugene, OR to visit Lyle and his wife Pat. Lynda knew Lyle as a boy in...

Jun 9, 2011 - Lynda Will Be Home Sunday

Yesterday’s report from Oklahoma City was very positive. Betty is doing much better and feels confident that Lynda can join me in California. Hooray! The sisters have been out and about getting haircuts, buying flowers for Betty’s garden, and who knows what all. Of course, Lynda has been playing chauffeur; a role Bill can readily assume. Betty loves her garden but, obviously, has been unable to plant spring flowers. Although it is a bit late in the season they have found some, so Lynda has become a temporary Mary Mary. Yesterday Lynda was...

Jun 2, 2011 - Our New Home

Before I begin my latest tale let me apologize for the absence of photographs for this and the previous entry. Without my technical support (i.e. Lynda) being here, no pictures until she arrives. I don’t have a clue how to enter them into the computer and then upload them to the journal. My technical knowledge as an aerospace engineer has not followed me into the digital age. After a pleasant visit in Scottsdale, AZ with long time friends Richard and Ann, a “no problem” dental check-up, and a delightful lunch with Oak and Maxine, I drove my...

Apr 5, 2011 - Palomar Divide Road

Near the entrance to our RV resort in Aguanga, CA, was a forest service road meant for Jeeps. Naturally, we couldn't resist it. Most of it wasn't too difficult, but there were just enough ruts and rock crawling to make it fun. The views were spectacular. The road is called the Palomar Divide Road because it goes up to the Palomar telescope, but there is no access. You have to go a different way to get the tour.
