Nov 7, 2017 - Red Bluff CA

We pushed to Red Bluff this year instead of Redding. Should have stayed at Redding ,after driving thru all the hills and curves with semis all over the place makes for a rather stressful day....Ed was exhausted and went to bed at 8pm...he slept until 7 am the next morning. We were greeted with a pleasent 18 degrees C...we are thawing out now.

Mar 31, 2017 - Northbound even with killer winds

The winds continued unabated today, which made for wicked driving conditions again but we made our destination regardless. After our requisite stop in Corning at the Olive Pit to resupply our larder with assorted olive delicacies it was off to Red Bluff for our next must stop. A few short hours ago off we went to one of our favorite Mexican restaurants "Carlitos" and had our annual fill while still south of the border. Head towards Oregon tomorrow and hopefully lighter winds, which they are forecasting to lessen overnight, temps here at 730...

Jan 2, 2017 - we out ran the snow/cold

Well after 48hrs at 7 Feathers it was time to run Grants pass and the Siskiyous. It was cold and miserable/snowy all weekend here, but after watching the forecasts it was time to go. We even pulled thje slides in to be warmer. It was 28F when we departed this morning, roads slushy right up to the summit of Grants pass. Then roads were wet and dirty until we hit Redding on the other side. I have never seen the rig so dirty. We decided to continue on to Red Bluff which is also the home of one of our faviorite Mexican restaurants. Temps now is...

Nov 28, 2016 - Day 2 of the journey

We got a better start this morning. We must be settling into our "fast Cruise". It was cool and drizzling in Eugene, but not as cold as last night with that wind. We got underway at 0830, so a much better than yesterday. We kept monitoring the road cameras on the Siskiyou's, as the weather had been predicting a winter storm with snow. But it said the pass was clear except for some icy spots. Our first stop was the Seven feathers rest area and we took on about 25 gallons of diesel. We never go over the pass with a full tank of fuel,...

Jul 31, 2016 - Red Bluff, California

We left Lake Siskiyou Camp Resort around 1200 for the Durango RV Resort in Red Bluff, California. We have been at this campground numerous times and the only downside to this campground at this time of the year is the temperature. The temperature was around 100 when we arrived and I mentioned how hot it was to our escort from the office to our site and he said you should have been here yesterday because it was about 10 degrees hotter. It did cool of nicely once the sun went down late in the evening. The road from Mt. Shasta to Red Bluff is...

Jan 9, 2016 - From Oregon into California

Day two of the journey: Underway by 0830 with no issues this morning. Thanks be to God! Yeah! Kinda foggy this morning to start with, followed by showers here and there along the way. The scenery was beautiful and comforting. Lots of rolling hills with cattle, and sheep contentedly grazing. We had many hills and mountains to climb today. We started up the highest pass about noon (the Siskiyous), so that was to our benefit weather wise. It was snowing as you can see, but it wasn't sticking on the road. The road had been sanded too. Lake...

Dec 17, 2015 - Red Bluff RV Park

We went thru the whole cornucopia of weather as we transited Grants Pass and the Siskiyou's. Sunshine, overcast skies, wind, light snow showers and more rain. Once we started our descent down from the summit however the skies dried up and temperature started to rise. Did the requisite fruit and firewood stop entering Calif so we are good to go. Stopped at another mom and pop campground we like mainly because there is a great Mexican restaurant right next that is good, cheap and always gives you enough food for at least another meal the next...

New route 15/16

Jun 5, 2015 - May 22-27, 2015 Memorial Day Weekend With the OFF group.

Arriving at Durango Friday afternoon it was good to see old friends and meet new ones. The OFF group continues to grow and the lack of tight organization and rules just seems to work. There were 8 rigs in the ‘main cluster’ and a couple of rigs off by themselves by the river. In the ‘main cluster’ were Ed and Brian, Marc and Gregg, Sandy and Debbi, Tom and Pete, Neal and Gary, Tom and Mary-Ann, John and Victor, and Linda and Billy. Tom and Pete did a wonderful job as usual, thanks guys. It was a nice relaxing weekend, people doing what they...

Oct 28, 2014 - Durango RV Resort

Departed Seven Feathers this morning, arriving at Durango RV Resort mid afternoon. Nice park, but was a little difficult to find the entrance. GPS let us down at the last minute. It is nestled behind a small shopping center. Red Bluff is not the gastronomical center of the planet, we had a difficult time finding a place to eat. We final settled on a Barbeque joint in downtown Red Bluff that advertised "Texas Style" Barbeque. Not...... The waiters made the mistake of asking how it was when we were settling up the bill and after our...

Aug 5, 2014 - Durango RV Resort, Red Bluff, CA

Left Lodi and now at Durango RV Resort in Red Bluff, CA. Cloudy and rainy, temp around 75. Nice RV park, we got a river site, number 75. It's pull through or back in with a nice view of the river. Nice big pool and jacuzzi. The fountain view spots are nice to, one row is back in and one is pull in, so you have a good view out of the back of a 5th wheel or the front of a Moho. The pool is very nice, a little cool. Hot tub was nice and very hot. Very nice clean park, probably the best one we have ever stayed at. Only negative is the freeway...

Mar 19, 2014 - Red Bluff RV Park

Ah if all the travel days were as nice as today. Clear skies, 70F, light to no wind and light traffic. Made the requisite stop at the Olive Pit in Corning for all the goodies and what did Randi spy but a Fabric shop, guess I have another quilt in my future, but of course it was all on sale lol. On to Grants Pass tomorrow and Seven Feathers Casino and Rv park one of our favorites. As we headed north it was something to behold the mountains in the distance with all their snow cap. Us and the dogs can certainly feel the difference in the air,...

Jan 11, 2014 - Enroute to Lemoore NAS in California

Red Bluff, CA. To: Lemoore NAS, CA. Today the sunshine was long gone as we pulled out this morning into the rain, again. (Spike is glad he didn't wash the RV, as it would have been a total waste of soap and effort.) Thankfully the traffic was pretty light today. And I forgot to tie down the TP in the bathroom for the bumpy trip through the Stockton area, so it all unrolled. Shades of Alaska, how soon I forget! (Spike might make me get qualified on how to Properly secure a "head"). Those of you that travel I-5, know how awful that road is...
