Dec 25, 2012 - Highland, CA

Merry Christmas Tue, 25 Dec: It was pretty cold in the desert overnite and we sure enjoyed snuggling under our extra blankets. To conserve our batteries we didn't turn on any heaters until we awoke, so it was quite the battle to see whose bladder would last the longest (as in "Honey, while you're up will you turn on the heater?") Sandi won! When we opened the shades we were greeted with a spectacular desert sunrise. We thought there were no sunrises prettier than those we saw on Maui. But these Southwestern desert jobbies are pretty awesome...

2012 Travels

Apr 14, 2011 - Day 10 San Bernardino & Beyond

After breakfast, we ventured out to visit a few close places. We decided to drive east then turn around and drive back west seeing the sights. So off we headed to Victorville, but first we had to climb up and up, passing Oak Hills and the Summit Inn, to a height of over 4000 feet. As if we were not already ditsy enough now we're in thin air. But soon we descended a short way and arrived in Victorville. They have one of the official Rt 66 museums and after we put a pin in San Antonio, we toured, stared, and read about THE MOTHER ROAD we...

Retirement Rocks!!

Apr 12, 2011 - Day 8 Indio-San Bernardino, CA

Woke up early this morning to the birds singing. It sounded like the Snow White movie where she's in the woods with all the animals around her. It was a beautiful day out, a little hazy, but hardly any clouds in the sky, not to hot, not to chilly. Since the RV resort turned the electricity off about 8 am, we really didn't have much choice but to pack up and head for San Bernardino. As we entered the wind farm valley, the wind really picked up. Bob was driving and was barely hanging on. It wasn't as bad as AZ, but when your driving a large...

Retirement Rocks!!

May 29, 2010 - San Bernardino, CA

We headed south out of Las Vegas through the desert to hook up again with Route 66. Then west through the Mojave Desert – we had plenty of water and a full tank of gas. Highest gas price we saw was $3.99/gallon. More abandoned gas stations, restaurants and motels left destitute when bypassed by the interstate. Traffic was very light, but some rough road. Stopped for the night in Oak Hills, CA, about 90 miles from Santa Monica and the end of Historic Route 66.

Apr 12, 2010 - Trip to San Bernardino

Monday, April 12, trip to San Bernardino. Cloudy with intermittent rain all day and temperatures swinging between 48 to 61 degrees. Yesterday evening we were planning to go to Sequoia National Park today, but when we listened to the late night weather we changed our minds. Snow was predicted in the Sequoia which meant that we would have difficulty driving and enjoying the Park; so, we changed our plans from touring Sequoia today to touring it later this week. So, we got up and had a breakfast of those darn frozen and reconstituted eggs. I...

Nov 5, 2009 - day 36 on rt66

our day 36 on rt 66 these last 100miles of rt66 are the most difficult thru LA - many things to see and photo... the area is very smog unfriendly, areas where some would feel unsafe... roadsways are not well named, street signs are missing, streets are very narrow, and when people look at you, you get the feeling they're saying "hay, get out of my hood!"... and to top that, we are getting lost from the lost/stolen/missing signs, have to retrack our trip to be on the route to see the things we want to see, plus, having to camp miles from our...

Apr 20, 2009 - 102 Degrees !!!!!!

Sweltering- that's all I can say. The techs did an ourstanding job trying to get our coach done by 5 o'clock today but it simply was not to be -- so-- we are back at the campground and hopefully tomorrow they will finish the job and we will be on our way. It was tough trying to find something to do for all the hours that we were without a home. We don't need to buy anything so going to the mall is really a waste of time, there aren't any conveniently located movie thaters ( we haven't been to a movie in a VERY LONG TIME), and we couldn't...

Apr 18, 2009 - Lunch at Mission Inn

Met a very interesting lady in the park and talked to her for almost two hours this morning. She has a 28ft motorhome and travels around all by herself. She is in her fifties, divorced, has 4 children who live in California, and has a real "pioneer" spirit. She finds work, stays for a few months or even a year, and then moves on. Guess she is searching for a job or a town that makes her want to stay put. After raising 4 children I guess she just enjoys the freedom of the road! The weather has gotten very hot very fast. Today was 90,...

Apr 16, 2009 - Monday is D Day ( Delivery Day)

The tracking system says Monday for the delivery of our part. We were so hoping it would be tomorrow but as the saying goes "......make lemonade". Since we are still in limbo we have decided it would be a good idea to see the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. It isn't that far and I KNOW we will not be back this way. It is finally going to warm up tomorrow so it seems like a good day to go. Today was laundry day and sit in the sun and read day. The Einstein book is very interesting although I still couldn't tell you that I completely understand...

Mar 5, 2009 - San Bernardino, Ca

San Bernardino is a city born of the ocean. While the city sits in the valley, the San Bernardino National Forest surrounds it. The Indians are the original settlers,led by the spirit sign of the arrow. The arrow face is made up of quartz with sage bushes strategically outlining it. It is completely natural. Soon after pioneers, gold seekers(one of the largest gold finds in southern California), Mormons, missionaries, etc. We had lunch at a restaurant called Claim Jumper-an upscale gold mining operation as the decorative style. You should...

Jan 1, 2009 - Our adventures

Our family consists of me, Michele (age 38), my fiance Rob (age 36), Conner (age 13), BreeAnna (age 11), and Paige (age 6). We only travel part time due to Rob's employment and the kids being in school. I miss homeschooling my 2 kids but we've found an excellent charter school that's perfect for my son. Public Safety Academy is a school designed for kids who want to be in law enforcement, serve on the fire department or join the military. Our daughters also go to excellent schools but we just happened to get lucky with the public school...

Our RV Adventures

Dec 8, 2008 - Starting our trip east

As is usual for me, I avoid cities, so skirted LA, then drove through San Bernardino, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, and into La Qinta with a stop at Shields Date Farm where we bought dates, dried fruit and their famous date shakes. Continuing on through Indio we took the turnoff to the Salton Sea and arrived at the campground on the east coast, just before sunset. This gave us time to walk to the picturesque beach and watch the scores of wintering birds. I had planned on making this an overnight stop but an early morning walk to the lagoon...
