May 1, 2017 - Tahoe to Mt Shasta via St Bernard Lodge

Tahoe to Lassen Breakfast today included granola with yoghurt followed by homemade waffles with maple syrup, yum! We set off from Lake Tahoe at 9:30 and soon after turned up the road to the Squaw Valley ski resort. There were already lots of cars in the car park but not yet many people on the slopes. The sun was shining and we saw a number of people heading to the lifts with bare arms. A guy from Seattle, who told us he gets a season ticket for a Canadian ski resort for $500 for the year, said that with the bumper snow Squaw Valley might...

Sep 6, 2016 - Mount Shasta CA

Day 1 of our six week trip along the Oregon coast and into the Washington Peninsula with Judy and Doug Fowler, friends we have known since 2008. They too are HitchHiker owners now residing in Herald CA. And I will start off by saying that despite what the political opposition is saying, our economy is booming. There are more RV's on the roads not to mention other travelers. The campgrounds were full. The tourist sites were crowded and so were the restaurants and grocery stores. It made the trip rather tedious sometimes, not our usual...

Jul 22, 2016 - Lake Siskiyou Camp Resort

It has been sometime since I last updated this journal and I am not going to attempt to justify my tardiness. I decided to catch-up everything because Marge and I attended the August outing of our motorhome club yesterday morning so that I could conduct the club's monthly meeting. I am currently the club President and this the first meeting I have conducted since Memorial Day when we left for our trip to Calgary. What sparked my need to update the journal was a question one of the club memeber's asked me when I walked over to talk to him....

Aug 18, 2015 - Orlando to Sacramento to Mount Shasta

Upon arrival in Sacramento our original plan was to pick up the RV and drive to Mount Shasta, staying a couple of days. But the smoke from the fires was so bad that Mount Shasta at over 14000 feet was completely hidden. And not only that, our favorite restaurant in Mount Shasta, the Billy Goat Tavern, is closed. We did find a decent Mexican restaurant, Lalos, and enjoyed the dinner. We stayed only one night at Abrams Lake RV Park and fled to Oregon the next day.

Aug 5, 2015 - 7/19-7/31 Mt. Shasta, CA.

Sunday we headed south to Mt. Shasta, CA. which is located in the beautiful Siskiyou mountains at food of the majestic Mt. Shasta. It was a drive of about 160 miles. It was really sad and scary to see Mt. Shasta, though, never in our 35 years of driving by her approx. 2x year have we seen her with so little snow. We are staying at KOA updating their guest guide, which means selling ads. It has been quite hot and the first night we sat outside eating dinner, however the next two nights we had thunder storms with rain, quite a bit especially...

Sep 16, 2014 - Mount Shasta

It was a beautiful, fairly short drive up Highway 89 today. However, the first part of the trip just north of the campground near Hat Creek showed evidence of a very recent forest fire. We found out just how recent when we got to the KOA at Mount Shasta City. Apparently, that fire only started the first week of August and is still smoldering although it is contained after burning something like 60,000 acres. It kept the highway we drove on closed for some time. Now we're only six miles away from the town of Weed where the fire started...

Apr 23, 2014 - From the Valley to the Mountains

Today’s drive took us up the Sacramento Valley of northern California on I5. It’s the northern half of California’s Central Valley. The terrain changes from the flat valley floor with farm fields, fruit and nut orchards to rolling green hills with cattle, sheep, and goats grazing and then to the northern Sierra Nevada mountains. Nuts, such as almonds and walnuts, and rice, are major crops. Nearly 90% of the world’s almonds come from this area. The town of Corning produces olives for oil extraction and for consumption as fruit. We stopped in...

May 13, 2013 - Mount Shasta, CA

The caravan left at our usual hour of 9:30 to drive to Mount Shasta staying at Abrams Lake RV Park. There was shopping to do in Mount Shasta. We played golf at the Weed Golf Club, a rather challenging 9 hole course built on the side of a mountain (lots of ups and downs) and a fantastic view of Mount Shasta. Needless to say we got a cart. The Billy Goat Tavern, one of our favorite burger joints, was our choice for dinner. Eating out again. Do you see a trend here?

Sep 18, 2012 - Around Mount Shasta

Around Mt Shasta Sep 18, 2012 We have set up our Grand Jct at the very first place I lived when arriving in Mt Shasta back in 1976, Abrams Lake Mobil Home and RV Park. It's located a little northwest of town in the shadow of Black Butte, an old cinder cone which also cast shadows on Interstae 5. When I lived here back in 1976 my neighbor Neal worked for his dad's logging company and it was Walter that finally gave me a chance to work in the woods. Back then as today it was one of the better paying jobs. Although logging is a bit different...

Sep 12, 2012 - Mt. Shasta

Mountain Gate camp is the best value we have found in all of our travels. They even served continental breakfast with bagels, pastries, muffins and coffee. Nice touch! We stopped to talk with Bruce and Kim of Jacksonville, FL who have a Roadtrek 210. Those who have Roadtreks love to talk about them! Spent an hour comparing rigs and travels with the outcome that they may visit us in Sonoma. They have family in Forrestville and Bakersfield and have plans to move to the west coast. They both recently retired but Kim worked for one of my...
