Apr 7, 2016 - A Happy Camper

We spent the past week visiting with our friend, Sue, while staying at Sugar Barge RV Park. We went out to eat several times, but mostly I just spent time with her, talking and visiting. It is always hard knowing what to say or do when someone has lost a spouse or a loved one. We were happy to see that Sue is managing quite well and has several people helping her with various things to make her life easier now. -- The park is very nice and once the boat people left after the weekend, it was very quiet. In fact, we were pretty much there by...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Aug 16, 2015 - 8/6-8/8 49er Village, Plymouth, CA

Thursday morning we packed up and came across the mountains. We came to Plymouth for a Blue Cross Reunion at Helwig Winery. This was spearheaded by Tom, Susan Reed and Dave Helwig and has been in the planning for well over a year. About 30 people attended. The Helwig crew did a fantastic job setting the event up, feeding and managing this rowdy group! Thank You! 4 rigs stayed at 49er village, us along with Carl Kirnon and Diane Watern, Mike Framberger, and Mary and John Lovell. It was nice to get some extra time with these people since we...

Apr 5, 2015 - New Scenery

We loved the spot we had in Coarsegold and enjoyed our quiet visit there very much. It would make me very nervous to stay there this summer, however, because of the possible fire danger. I think that California is in for a long summer. There was a fire on Saturday in nearby Sequoia National Forest but they managed to get it out with only 20 acres burned. But if your home is in that 20 acres, it is pure heartbreak. -- We moved this morning, still staying in the Sierra foothills. We took our fellow RVers' advice and did not travel Highway 49....

Dec 17, 2009 - Wine Country

Both of us are feeling better so we left Klamath to head up to Plymouth in Amador Co. We stopped for the night at a pullout outside from Ukiah. It was set back from the Hwy. with an area to walk the dogs and worked out great for the night. For dinner, we had our crabs with wine and settled in reading our books. The drive was very pretty, traveling through various countryside’s from Cranberry bogs, tall Eucalyptus, rolling hills with scrub Oak and Madrona trees then large fields of garlic. We are officially in CA as we saw our first palm...

Nov 7, 2009 - Trip 15: Far Horizons 49er Village, Plymouth, CA

Another gold country trip, this time we decided to avoid Latrobe road. Latrobe is a narrow, no shoulder, windy, pot-hole filled adventure that gets you from highway 50 to highway 49. We decided this time to stay on 50 to Diamond Springs and connect to highway 49 there. As we got to 49, we thought we had done well, that is until we started down a narrow, curvy canyon on 49. Maybe Latrobe is not that bad after all. This is a park at the end of Plymouth, another small, small town. The park is very nice lots of grass, ponds, and paved access....

Summer 2009

May 30, 2009 - Plymouth, Days 2 and 3

We went up into the Sierra Mountains yesterday. We ended up within about 30 miles of Lake Tahoe before we turned back. We reached elevations of up to 8,000 feet. That wasn't our only excitement (I hate heights, especially without guard rails). Bill forgot to get gas in the car before we left. As an aside - is it only Bill that likes to wait until the fuel light comes on before he gets gas, or is it all guys? He does this frequently at home. I'm just the opposite. As soon as my car hits 1/4 of a tank, I'm at the gas station. Once, when I was...

May 28, 2009 - Plymouth, CA

We arrived in Plymouth early yesterday afternoon. This part of California is called Gold Country - it's where the big gold rush happened. We are in a terrific campground that has a cafe, jacuzzi, a pond, and an amphitheater (although no concerts until mid-June). The pond has huge frogs that have the deepest croaks I've ever heard. If Sam Elliot were a frog ("Beef, it's what's for dinner"), he would croak just like this! Two of my favorite things at night are frogs and fireflies. So, I'm very happy that I have the frogs here. When we got...

Oct 3, 2007 - Sacramento, Plymouth, and onto Minden

Storm due on Friday, Oct. 5th, so all this might change. Spent 4 days in the Placerville, Calif. visiting a friend, that I went to highschool with, and her husband. They took us to the Apple Orchards, and shopping in downtown Placerville. Haven't seen much of each other in 40 years, but we easily talked like it was just yesterday. On Saturday, Oct. 6th we drove to Coloma, Calif. which is about 8 miles north of Hwy.50 on Hwy. 49. Coloma lies in California's Sierra foothills in the fabled Gold Country. It is where the historic gold discovery...

Sep 21, 2007 - Gold Country - Amador City & Sutter Creek

We camped in Plymouth, CA at the 49er Campground and traveled daily to visit the Gold Country towns. This area is the foothills (west) of the Sierra Nevadas, where gold was discovered at Sutter Mill. Our first visit was the cities of Amador and Sutter, with Sutter Creek running through town. The buildings were restored and the shopping was fun. We took an underground mine tour that was very interesting and chilly. Our tour guide was a real miner with lots of tails to tell.

Aug 1, 2007 - 49er Village RV Resort~Plymouth, Ca.

Our quest to find out all about living a fulltime RV life style proved to be very interesting. Anyone who finds this to be something they would like to try should do a lot of research before considering. It takes a lot of thought and planning to know exactly what you need to do to prepare yourself for such a life change. First and foremost you have to be o.k. with giving up all your "stuff". What I mean by that is getting rid of all the things you thought you could never, ever live without. All the nick-knacks, dishes, pictures adorning...
