I can't believe it!! I forgot to publish my last journal entry for our trip. My Bad!!! We got home Thursday Aug 2nd, almost two weeks ago. Sorry.

Leaving Auburn, we drove down to Carmichael to visit with Terry and Jennifer. They used to live in...Jump to full entry
Jun 27, 2012 - Lake Forest to Las Vegas
June 27--We started our trip with a rather unusual lunch--catering trucks in nearby Irvine. These trucks have become very popular and "roach coach" does not apply, it's way more gourmet than that. It's like having a "food court" right in a parking lot. We met up with some friends and all experienced a different dish. That is except for Charlie and me, we both had Lobsta rolls. After lunch Janet and I went and got the bus and headed out to Las Vegas, NV. You can't imagine how hot is was crossing the Mojave Desert, 108 degrees going through...Jump to full entry

Jul 23, 2010 - Starting off from Lake Forest, California
Welcome to our 1st journal posting! After weeks of waiting looking at our vacation countdown clock we finally blasted off Wednesday morning about 10AM headed north to our first overnight camp at Boulder Creek Campground in historic Lone Pine, California. When we arrived it was 102 degrees so that called for a dip in the campground pool to cool off. Many of you I’m sure remember as little kids getting up Saturday mornings and turning on the black and white family TV and tuning in to Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, or the Long...Jump to full entry
Feb 11, 2010 - Shuttle Launch
Dear Friends, I have always wanted to see a shuttle launch, especially a night launch. It wasn't exactly on my "bucket list", but every time I saw it on the evening news, I wanted to witness it first hand. A few months ago my brother-in-law Gary traveled to Orlando and saw a launch and came home beaming with enthusiasm about the experience. And some great photos too. That did it!! When NASA put tickets on sale for the February launch, we went on line to NASA.gov, entered the virtual waiting room, and got selected to purchase tickets. Our...Jump to full entry

Dec 28, 2009 - California Day 15
California Trip -- Day 15 We arose and decided to have breakfast at the "Corner Bakery". I was familiar with this place from eating at the bakery while in Chicago. We had Anaheim Scrambler and a Banana Muffin. We then headed to work on Brian and Emily's pation landscaping. We made our first stop at Lowe's and picked up a variety of plants. We then took them to the houses to share with the kids and decide on other options for plants. Brian, Bill and I went to Home Depot to look at other plants and picked out more to fill in the planting...Jump to full entry
