Dec 27, 2009 - California Day 14

California Trip -- Day 14 We went to Brian and Emily's house today to finish up the electrical work on the security light. But first, we all decided to go to the Orange County Marketplace which is a huge swap meet or another name for a flea market. Bill and I found many bargains and bought things that we really didn't need but the trip was fun and it was great to spend the time with Brian and Emily and of course, James. They left early but we stayed a little longer to do some shopping. We went to Del Taco for lunch before heading to their...

California Trip -- Day 13 We spent the day at Brian and Emily's house. We were helping Brian with some jobs with which he needed assistance.

California Trip -- Day 12 We rose up early and had a healthy treat for breakfast...fresh blackberries with cream. We prepared for the day. We were going to have Christmas breakfast at Rosie's house.

Dec 24, 2009 - California Day 11

California Trip -- Day 11 When we got up this morning we wanted Krispy Kreme donuts. After talking to Brian and Emily about heading to their house, we left to do the donuts thing. Two and a half hours later we finally made it to their house but we never did get the donuts. Our ride to Krispy Kreme turned into a two hour hunt....we actually were also trying to find the route to their house without taking the interstate. We did have to take a 4 mile ride on interstate 5. We did some Christmas shopping for James. We spent the day with Brian,...

Aug 26, 2009 - Final entry - Charlie and Mary are back home!

Hi everyone, No more pictures...We made it back home to Lake Forest, Monday evening about 7PM. So this is our final entry for this trip. We covered 6825 miles with no problems, visiting 9 states (CA, NV, ID, OR, WA, MT, WY, UT AND AZ). We got to visit 8 of our great country's national parks (Yosemite, Sequoia, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and the Grand Canyon). It was fun to meet up with some of you along the way for various segments of the trip. We'll be doing a cross country one next year from the Kern River...
