Our Adventure officially started August 1 with the coach being dropped off at our RV Service Department for a "pre-trip" inspection and warranty work. Just enough time to spend a few days with Rick's sister, Debbie in San Clemente for a little beach weather (a well needed break from intense desert summer heat)!

We will continue on to Pismo Beach where we will spend time with uncle Charlie and cousin Sherrie who live in nearby Orcutt. Our good friends, the Duchenes' will join us on Saturday the 7th on their way to Northern California. Off to visit the wineries of Paso Robles for the day.

Next to the Sacramento Delta where we will stop and see our friends, Mike and Pam Allen. They are our neighbors in the winter and spend the summers at their home in Stockton.

From Stockton our journey takes us to Ashland, OR to spend the week with daughter Karsten and her lovely little family. We haven't seen our grandsons Bodhi and Drake since February and miss them SO MUCH! This will be our northernmost desitnation.

As we head south again, we plan to visit the charming town of Pleasanton, CA. Several people have told us that the downtown district is a bit of "Norman Rockwell" Americana and that the County Fairgrounds that has been recently converted to an RV Resort is a great place to stay.

From Pleasanton we will venture on to one of our favorite places in California...Santa Barbara. We plan to soak up more beach weather before our return to the heat of the desert summer!

We hope you enjoy this little journal as much as we are enjoying putting it together.
