Oct 26, 2015 - Tulare, CA

We were up early this morning. This will be a long driving day. We are anxious to get home so Bill can get all labs and appts done for his knee surgery on Nov. 23. We left at 6:45 with the intention of staying in Bakersfield. Within a few minutes the sun started rising which made for some nice sunrise pictures. Even though we have stayed in the desert we have never been up early enough to see the sunrise. We took 95 North out of Blythe to Needles. This will eliminate going through Palm Springs and San Bernardino which is normally a mess....

Sep 7, 2014 - Dunnigan, CA to Tulare, CA

Not a picture day. We had an uneventful day and settled into our RV park early in the afternoon. The park was very nice and had a beautiful pool that Tony, Jim, Bob and I enjoyed. It was nice to act like we were on a real vacation. We had a nice dinner of pork chops and all the trimmings. We ate dinner in Bob and Cathy's RV since Tony was not anxious to set out, he had multiply insect bites on both legs, and they did look painful. We all retired to out own places early to prepare for another travel day.

Jun 21, 2014 - OTRA - CA - Tulare

6/21/14 My goodness. We certainly got off to an early (for us) start today. We were on the road by 8:40 a.m.!! I wanted to leave early because they're predicting windy weather with gusts to 50 mph and we have to go through the Tehachapi Pass and along that stretch is where I thought we'd run into those winds and gusts but, thankfully, there were none along our whole route. Hear my sigh of relief here? From CA-58, we merged onto CA-99, a route we had taken a couple of years ago on the way to Yosemite and, at that time, it was horrendous....

Dec 30, 2013 - Why would anyone.....

We were ready to leave Santa Rosa, I was putting everything away inside and Buzz was doing the same outside; he went to hook the car up to the motorhome to tow it when he realized we had a problem. There are 2 lock pins on the car which we use to connect the car to the motorhome so it can be towed. Evidently while the car was parked at San Francisco Airport, someone decided they might have a use for them and removed them (for the life of us we can’t figure out what they would use them for if they were not towing a car AND had the exact tow...

Nov 7, 2013 - Why Bother to Clean?

There is much that we love about California, but probably the main thing is the weather. When we got up this morning it was cool - 38 degrees – but once the sun came up over the mountains around us the temperature warmed up quickly and we spent the day without jackets or sweatshirts for the first time in over a month. It felt wonderful!!!!! The motorhome had gotten pretty dirty after all the weather we had driven through, so we found a truck/rv wash about a half hour from where we had camped and made that our first stop of the day. We had...

Sep 23, 2013 - Arriving at Tulare, CA

After a much shorter drive than yesterday - we drove less than 200 miles - we arrived at Fun and Sun RV Resort at the south edge of Tulare, CA. This is not nearly as nice a resort as the previous two and (we discovered after being there a few hours) there's a very active railroad track just over the wall from the RV Park. Trains run all night until about 3 AM when they take a break until 6 AM. Then it's every half hour for a while. It's really annoying. Oh well. We're here for a few days so we can visit both Sequoia and Kings Canyon...

Jul 27, 2013 - End of Day 1

I continued west across Sherman Pass Road where it crossed the Kern River Highway and became Mountain Road 99. Over the next several miles and hundreds of twisties, I turned north on M107 into the Southern Giant Sequoia National Monument. The roads were fantastic and the Giant Red Sequoias were beautiful to see! But it was time for me to get to the Hotel in Tulare. This was a very mentally and physically taxing ride, but was worth doing... once!

Mar 13, 2013 - Day 240 - Las Vegas, Nevada to Tulare, California

We decided to leave Las Vegas a day earlier than planned to ensure that we get to Coburg, Oregon by Wednesday, March 20 in time for our appointment at the Monaco factory service center. We left Vegas early, on the road at 8:30 AM and travelled through desert and mountains into California. We started seeing more agriculture areas, fields of rows and rows of green put we could not tell what it was going to be. I would guess mostly vegetables. As we approached Bakersfield it turned into orchards, many in bloom with acres of white or pink...

Sep 14, 2011 - A Day of Rest in Tulare, CA

We needed a day of rest and catching up after traveling quite a bit lately. We decided to stay here two days and get the journal up-to-date, read, and do laundry. We'll head out again tomorrow. Sally called her sister, Louise, for her birthday. Louise is 70 years old today. She was about to get into her kayak for a three-hour relaxing paddle all by herself around a lake. Good for her! Go, girl!
