Sep 24, 2018 - The American Riviera

Arrived at the visitor’s center in downtown Santa Barbara around 10. Traffic was once again a challenge. Missed the 10 o’clock trolley by a few minutes but bought a ticket for the 11 o’clock departure. Had some time to kill so walked the couple blocks down to State Street where Stern’s Wharf goes out over the water and took a quick walk out onto it. Back by 10:45 so was one of the first on the trolley. Tour was an hour and 45 minutes and a very reasonable $22 which got you 2 days if you wanted. After the tour I took a more leisurely stroll...

Sep 23, 2018 - Driving and Hiking + Hearst Castle

Departed Salinas shortly after 8. First stop was Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park which is about an hour south of Salinas on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) or CA 1. Followed the River Path along the Big Sur River (I may already have mentioned this but it doesn’t take much for something to be called a river out here. This “river” can be leapt across at many spots and is ankle to knee deep in most places.) for .5 miles. Crossed a bridge and hooked up w/ the Buzzards Roost Trail which was 1.8 miles to the top. After some gradual elevation at the...

Oct 8, 2016 - 2nd Update

October 3, 2016 (Monday): Left Denver by 7:00 AM so that we could get to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP early enough in the late afternoon to see the spectacle. We knew nothing about this National Park, so Betty and I were pleasantly surprised. The Gunnison River has carved this crevasse the way the Colorado River carved the Grand Canyon. In fact, they are very similar but the distance across the canyon in the Black Canyon is probably about a ½ mile, whereas the distance across the Grand Canyon is probably 5 miles. The distance to the...

Mar 7, 2015 - Oxnard- Channel Islands

Today we went out for Breakfast I had French toast with bacon and it was yum. Then we drove to the hotel but we stopped at Santa Barbara. We saw some Pelicans and a whale in the water. The whale was jumping up and down. In the night we had a spa at the hotel and the hotel is two stories high. Our spa is private. Love Ollie

Today we left Tito June's house and we headed to Tita Linda's house. Nana and Daddy said she was sick. Her daughter was there so i met her too.

Jun 28, 2012 - Hot Days

109 is HOT! Even though it's a dry heat, it is soooo HOT! Then add a 50 mph wind and you feel like your in an induction oven. Going into California was pretty miserable with the heat; constantly watching the trucks gauges, stopping to give her a break occasionally. We had two drops in our delivery. Our first in Ontario, on the far eastern edge of Los Angeles area and our second in Oxnard, on the far western side of Los Angeles area. We left our first drop by 6:30 am, hoping it was enough time to get us the 99 miles to Oxnard before rush...

May 4, 2012 - Playing Catch-Up

As I am SO far behind, I will just fill in via point for my cool map, and highlight our loads to get things caught up. After delivering our Mushrooms, we did a drop and hook in Bradenton, Florida (blowing the horn when we went past Brooksville) picking up a load of juice going to Walnut, California. It went to a container transfer place, which probably means its going on a ship over the Pacific. Needing to get home, the best load got us heading into Minnesota. We had a 2 pick-up produce in Bakersfield and Oxnard, which mainly consisted of...

Oct 23, 2011 - Down the road towards LA

On our way to LA. We stopped in a small town, Slovang, founded by Danish Americans from the midwest in 1910. Nine thousand acres of land was purchased to start a Danish Colony and folk school. The town was very quaint with danish architecture. In the upstairs of the Book Loft/Kaffe Haus was a Hans Christian Andersen Museum. Very informative. Not only was he a master of writing childrens fairy tales (Princess and the Pea, Snow Queen, Little Mermaid, etc) he also was an accomplished artist in intricate paper cuttings. An enjoyable stop and...

May 15, 2010 - Channel Islands National Park

Today we visited the Channel Islands National Park. The park is made up of five of the eight islands off the coast of souhern California. The area was designated a national Monument in 1938 and was upgraded to a national park in 1980. With over 140 endemic species of plants and animals, the Channel Islands have been called the Galapagos of the United States. We only had time (and money) to visit one island, Anacapa. Anacapa was a Coast Guard Station and still has an operating lighthouse. Anacapa is a sanctuary for the brown pelican (a...

May 12, 2010 - Catalina Island

Today, we took a ferry ride over to Santa Catalina Island--simply known as Catalina -- for the day. This island is part of the Channel Islands Chain. There is a National Park in these islands. Anyway, Avalon, founded in 1887, is the main city on the island. At one time, William Wrigley (the chewing gum Wrigleys) owned the entire island. Now it is a popular resort location with all kinds of touristy thing to do. Kayaking, scuba, bike riding, snorkeling, and parasailing are some of the diversions offered here. In addition, there are tours of...

Oct 30, 2009 - Oxnard: les plages, enfin

Nous repartons vers notre camping qui s’avère être très bien situé et garni de palmiers énormes. Nous avons un beau site qui nous rappelle celui que nous avions l’hiver dernier à Fort Myers. L’entourage est calme et les autres campeurs semblent être là à l’année. Une voisine vient nous voir car elle a reconnu notre plaque du Québec. Elle est toute énervé de cela car son mari est québécois, il travaille dans un garage Nissan de Ventura et habite les US depuis 12 ans. Nous partons avec le Jeep pour voir les plages et les beaux coins de cette...

Périple CAN-USA-MEX

Oct 29, 2009 - En route pour Los Angeles

Ce matin, vers 9 heures, nous avons quitté Salinas avec le motorisé afin de poursuivre notre descente vers le sud. Nous nous arrêtons cette fois à 275 milles de là, à Oxnard, pas loin de Los Angeles. Nous stationnons à un Walmart pour la nuit car le terrain de camping où nous voulons aller ne sera disponible que demain. Sur la route 101 que nous avons suivi pour venir à Oxnard, nous avons vu encore d’immenses champs de laitue, des vignobles et, assez surprenant, des petits champs de pétrole avec des extracteurs. Nous avons rencontré de...
