Jun 4, 2015 - Max still sick

Poor Max, still sick. He is very weak and still puking. Packing up early to get him to vet in Bakersfield. Mt Vet closes at 12 noon so we can not make it in time. Took him the San Juaquin vet in Bakersfield at 1pm. Vet said to feed him cottage cheese and rice and gave us some antibiotics. He was still not eating or drinking and was getting weaker and weaker. Took him home and tried to make him better, but was not happening.

Mar 14, 2015 - Out of the Desert-Finally!

We sure hate that drive - all the way from Texas and across the desert of California. It is plain ugly. There is nothing good to say about it. There is nothing we want to see along the way. We just want to get through it. So, far we have been 1600 miles since we left the beach in Texas and all of it has been ugleeeee. -- Plus, we are trying to get used to being back in dry climate again. Our lips are dry and if we don't keep Chapstick on them, they crack and get sore. Our noses are dry clear up into our sinuses. We are constantly blowing...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Jan 31, 2015 - Bakersfield - center of Kern County, Oil and Orchards

I left my desert retreat in Joshua Tree on Friday...in the rain. When the rain ceased, the gloomy clouds remained and eventually I was in fog. But by the time I reached my stopover in Bakersfield, the sun was shining and California looked green. I had only one more leg to go. Bakersfield is the home of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard and undoubtedly others of greater renown whom I have probably never heard of. If you're old enough to remember Hee Haw, though, you should remember Buck. And Merle...didn't he make some music in Luckenbach with...

Jan 20, 2015 - Bakersfield, CA

We head out in the fog yet again and a little misty rain. Not enough to help this state out, but moisture none the less. We arrive at one of our favorite RV parks, Orange Grove RV Park in Bakersfield. We will stay here a couple of days to pick oranges and wait for Steve & Linda. The smell of citrus fruit is awesome here and the oranges were big and especially sweet this year. We all had fun picking and we caught some of the "pickers" in action. See pictures! Around the corner from this park is California Fruit Depot which is a big fruit...

Dec 12, 2014 - Bakersfield, CA

Arrived at the Orange Grove RV Resort in Bakersfield around 3:30pm after about a 4 hour drive. A favorite stop of hours on the way to AZ and the orange trees are full and ready for plucking. No disappointment as they are large, juicy and delicious and picked a couple bags to take along. Next stop Indio, CA.

Oct 30, 2014 - Bakersfield RV Resort

Well it finally happened we showed up at one of our parks and no room at the inn. So they directed us to the park we are in and I think it is even better than the other one. Weather peaked at 86F today so shorts are the order of the day tomorrow. One more nite then should be at destination the next. That is unless we are big winners at the casino tomorrow lol. Gas continues at 3.07 here in California I cant get used to it. Almost forgot about our ferry ride, WSF 179 BC Ferry 294 hmm what one should I support. We do not have a winner in the...

Sep 21, 2014 - Back in Bakersfield

Left Seal Beach around 9 am, traffic was not to bad. Got to River Run RV park around 11:30 am. We are in spot 58, not bad. We are close to the pool and the spot to our passenger side is not used due to power lines, so our neighbor is far away. We will be staying weekly and will be in and out of here until January when we go to San Diego.

Jul 7, 2014 - Left Bakersfield RV Resort on our way to Santa Barbara Elks

After a week at the Bakersfield RV Resort we are heading out to Santa Barbara to cool off for a few days. We got to spend a couple days here with Jacob and Lilliana. We liked the RV park, it was clean and the restaurant was good as usual. Only negative was that most the staff was not very nice. We had to use wrist bands in the pool and forgot one day and the wrist band cop jumped all over us. The RV spots are not as big as The River Run. Dog run was in a strange place behind several motor homes and was hard to get to.

May 27, 2014 - Bakersfield, CA

Early start to Bakersfield today at 8:15 am. Hot day already at 86 degree. Lots of cars already in progress on I-15 S. We hit a traffic jam from 10:10 – 10:25 am…car rolled over. We saw the police, ambulance, and fire truck taking off from Baker to Barstow to the accident site. Lucky for us, we were only a few minutes away when the accident occurred, so we got through in 15 minutes. I imagine the backup after we got passed to be hours long…from 3 lines down to 1. Saw billboards along the way on I-15 for Peggy Sue’s Diner…had to check it...

May 25, 2014 - Bakersfield - but....

We planned to be in Bakersfield this weekend. In fact, we are in Bakersfield. But the catch is that we will be heading back to Fontana tomorrow. All the scheduled work was done by the end of the day on Wednesday and our plan was to sleep in on Thursday morning and leave at 11:00 for Bakersfield for a six-day stay. But, when I found a lingering problem with one of the small rear slideouts, that was changed to an early rise so that they could adjust the slide in time for us to leave. So we spent the morning in the Alfateer’s waiting room...
