Summer Trippin'

Jun 19, 2013 - Quincy, CA

Today we stumbled on the Lassen Volcano National Park. If you are in this part of CA, be sure to check out. We went in from the west entrance (elev. 1240 feet) and went up to a little over 9000 ft. It was one of the most nerve racking roads I have driven with the motorhome. No guard rail and no shoulders. Just share drop offs...... Stopped at Kettie Resort which looked to have shut down 50 years or so. Good camp site at no cost.

Jul 20, 2012 - On to California

Our last night in Edmonton a big thunder storm went over. Lots of lightning and rolling thunder and BIG rain drops. This was a much different storm than we are used to in California. Wednesday July 18--All the RV parks in the Okanagan Valley (Wine Country) were booked full, I waited too long to make a reservation, MY BAD!! So we changed plans and drove south from Edmonton, through Calgary, to Fort Macleod, and then west on Canada 3. We plan to cross the border in northern Idaho, near Sand Point. We stayed the night in a rest area on Can 3....

Calgary Stampede

May 13, 2012 - Out for A Drive on Highway 70

On Saturday we took a drive out Highway 70, we actually set out to see a botanical garden (which we never saw). We were just enjoying the views so much that we just kept on driving,of course we did stop at a little burger stand (the Polka Dot) in the town of Quincy. They has quite an extensive menu for a road side burger stand. We drove along side of the West branch of the Feather River & the North Fork of the Feather River, if you've never made this drive, your missing some awesome sights (the camera doesn't do it justice).

Oct 13, 2011 - Our time in Quincy comes to a close

This week was every bit as busy as we anticipated it would be. After all of our doctors appointments and dental visits, we're ready to get out of town and relax! While all of the appointments were productive, it was nonetheless tiring. Bev has been referred to a neurosurgeon for the tingling in her fingers and toes, along with several other symptoms. An MRI showed a pinched nerve bundle in her neck which could be the cause of several issues that have been bothering for a very long time. She is being referred to the same neurosurgeon that I...

Oct 6, 2011 - Camp Osocheap, deja' vu

This morning we moved over to Camp Osocheap (home of good friends Nancy & Keith) and got set up. Good friends like these are a real blessing when traveling. We don't want to take their generosity for granted, but it is nice to have conveniences close while visiting. This morning I got to visit with the coffee group while Bev was getting dental work done. It was nice to see old friends and get caught up with everyone. Tonight it is SNOWING big wet flakes of white stuff. The first snowfall typically doesn't arrive until mid-December....

Oct 4, 2011 - A rainy travel day

We heard the rain drops on the roof throughout the night and awoke to a light rain this morning. Linda had prepared a wonderful breakfast of a bread pudding frittata. After the meal we all agreed we should play one game of pinocle before we hit the road. Jerry and I were just too much for Linda and Bev to deal with. Sorry ladies. As we headed south down I-5 toward Chico, the rains began and were with us all day. We stopped in Chico for fuel and a few essentials before heading up the beautiful Feather River Canyon. Even in the rain, this is...

UNITED STATES TOUR

May 6, 2011 - Quincy, CA

Janet flew into Reno on Saturday, April 30th and Michele, Marlin and Aurora picked her up. They stayed in Reno while Jack and I were still out at the lake. Sunday we all met in Quincy where we stayed at the Pioneer RV Park until Saturday, May 7. We got to babysit the kids a couple of times, and work on Jack's motor home a bit, too. Michele's dad is recuperating from angioplasty and doing fine. It was great to see everyone and relax together.

Dec 12, 2010 - We have found the sunshine!

It's been awhile, but we awoke to a beautiful clear sky and sunshine this morning. That bright orb does definitely have an effect on attitude and a positive state of mind. We have missed it. Yesterday, Jan & Eugene entertained us at their lovely home and we got caught up on things they have been up to and talked about their planned motorhome trip this winter to the Southwest. It is our plan to meet somewhere in Arizona, place to be determined. We all are trying our best to be spontaneous and will see each other when our routes merge at a...
