Mar 27, 2013 - Day 4

We went to the Valley Plaza Mall, the mall of Bakersfield. Its bigger than Fashion Fair with more clothing and electronic stores. At first we we're just walking around but later we decided to shop around, a girl's favorite thing to do! The first store we entered was the Apple Store but we were scared to buy something because we didn't want to go over our budget. The next store we went to was Hot Topic, Terrell wanted to buy a Batman shirt; that's his favorite superhero. The last store we visited is my favorite clothing store, Forever 21....

Day 4, unlike the other days from staying home during the day we went to the mall and walked around. I went to my favorite store Hottopic and bought a Batman shirt. After Hottopic and going to Forever21 with Elaine we went to the Apple store to play with the new ipods and iphone 5. Later that night we went bowling all night from 9-12 for only $20. This is the store and the shirt that I had bought from Hottopic for myself. This is what it looks like inside of the Apple store at Bakersfield This is the place that we had went bowling for...

Today I decided to have a nice evening out on the town: movies and a dinner. We both decided to go see Alex Cross at the nearest movie theater and dinner would be after. Dinner would be at one of my favorite restuarants, Elphant Bar. Fancy and great. Dinner went great and even the service was good. I had a philly cheesesteak sandwhich served with fries and ice tea. Terrell had an ultimate cheeseburger and fries also a soda. Dessert we both had a giant ice cream cookie.

The next day during the sun hours we didn't really do anything. All we did was watch TV and chill. But that night we went to Camelot Park to Mini Golf and play some arcade games. This is the price of how much we had spent for tokens to play some games we spent $20 for 80 tokens to share. When we were playing Air Hockey she was dominating but when we played Marvel V.S. Capcom i was winning After all the games we played we went to play some mini golf.

Mar 24, 2013 - Leaving the Rat Race

The park in San Diego "fixed" their WiFi system so we couldn't get on any more and post our journal until today. -- On Friday, we explored the beach areas just north of San Diego: Mission Bay, Ocean Beach and La Jolla. These areas were very beachy and more like the poor man's beach towns. As we drove into LaJolla, we could see bigger homes up on the hill overlooking the ocean, and supposed that the real estate would just continue to get more expensive from there north. Once again, the weather was perfect, so much so that John and I started...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Mar 24, 2013 - Day 1

Terrell and I decided to attend our vacation in Bakersfield, California due to the fact we only had $586 to work with. Hotels, motels, hostels and bed and breakfasts we're a litte pricey for our budget. Terrell's brother and sister-in-law said it was okay for us to stay at their place. The money would go to our funding of activities, transportation and food. Terrell and I bought our greyhound roundtrip tickets , now on our way to Bakersfield, CA to stay at his brother's house for the week. We arrived at 4:30 in the morning after we went...

Mar 2, 2013 - Bakersfield, CA

Yesterday we made a 4 hour drive from the Palm Springs area and out of the desert arriving at the Orange Grove RV Park about 1pm. Very nice place with orange trees at every site...and the oranges are juicy and delicious. Nice to feel some humidity again while keeping the warm temps. Lots of snow birds staying overnight on their way back North and the park was almost full yesterday. We were planning on staying 2 nights but like this park and area so much will be here now until next Wednesday. Sunny with temps into the low 80's today....

Jan 21, 2013 - Bakersfield, CA

We once again traveled to Bakersfield, CA and stayed at Orange Grove RV Park. There are those that tell us that there are better places to stay, but we really like this park. You park among the orange trees and they let you pick a bag of fresh oranges while staying here. The fruit is large and sweet and nothing fresher. Oh so good! The only downside to staying here is getting here. The garbage along the roadside in central CA and coming into and out of Bakersfield is appalling. Enough so, that I will be contacting the State of CA and...

Dec 30, 2012 - Day 5: Bakersfield to Borrego Springs via La Quinta

The last day of the journey south. Be careful, be very careful. Most motor-vehicle accidents occur within 10 miles of home. Seasoned off-shore sailors say most of their troubles occur within the first and last couple of months at sea. We have a complicated day ahead; we remind ourselves to take it easy as we set off east from Bakersfield along Highway 58. This is a familiar route to us, one we adopted a couple of years ago, which avoids LA freeways and the portion of I-5 known as the Grapevine, which is frantic and often windy. We lost a...
