We like to stay in the Pioneer RV Park while visiting the kids in Quincy. It's a nice RV park with pine, aspen, and oak trees. And a good Wi-Fi signal. Quincy sits about 3800 feet in the Sierra Nevada mountains. For you newbies to my journals, our son Jack, d-i-l Michele, grandson Marlin and granddaughter Aurora live here. Jack and Michele own Sights and Sounds, a store in town that sells "stuff" geared mostly to teenagers and college students. The weather this trip has been very mild. In the mid 70's daily, with clouds building up every afternoon, but no thunder showers, yet! Michele's parents live here also, Ray and Pat Evans. Both retired school teachers, Ray at Feather River Community College, and Pat at the local high school.

We are always busy beavers when we visit here. So far we have scraped the driveway, Marlin and grandpa got haircuts, Aurora had a doctor appointment in Chico, CA, (almost 2 hour drive), we went fishing one morning, I fixed a window in the bus, Marlin had a graduation performance from preschool, and it's only Friday.

Saturday a good friend, Al Bunt and Cynthia, drove up from Carson City, NV to spend the night. Late Saturday afternoon Al and I and the girls went to check out some calves that Al and his son Will own. The calves are being pastured at a local ranch. Dinner was tri tip at Jack and Michele's, and the Bunts stayed over at their house. Sunday morning I made egg mcmuffins at the bus. We were able to visit until mid afternoon and then they had to head back to Carson City. We try to see one another at least once a year.

Monday morning we hung out at the Evans' property. Grandma Patty gave Marlin and Aurora strawberries right out of the garden. In the afternoon I began to pack up and get ready to hit the road in the morning. A final dinner with the family at a local Mexican restaurant and we said our goodbyes.

Bye for now,
