Apr 15, 2007 - The Road to Stockton

Well, the map portion of this is not cooperating. We didn't jump over the mountains to Stockton. We traveled a bit south and stayed in Tecopa Springs, Mojave, and Kingsburg (all in CA) before getting to Stockton. If you bring up the California/Nevada map - I have marked where the towns are. We stopped in Tecopa Springs - just south of Death Valley for the Chapter 14 Rally. Really nice folks and a lot of good cooks. The neat thing about this area are the hot mineral springs. The campground has two bath houses for male and female as the rules...

Apr 15, 2007 - Lodi (Sacramento), CA

We got to the Sacramento area around noon on Friday. From Reno to here we had to go over Donner Pass, so the temps were chilly all morning. When we got here, though, the temp was 72!! Finally, we put our winter coats away, and pulled out the awnings for the first time this trip. Friday night, we went out to dinner with Bill's sister, Bev, and her S.O. Verle, Verle's sister and niece (who were also in town). Yesterday (Saturday) it rained all day. We packed two cars with people and our two dogs (see photos - Bev and Verle's 116 pound...

Dec 12, 2006 - Stockton

This morning after chatting with the Park Hosts for a bit, we back tracked to get the shots that Mum was after. It was interesting to see the view we missed last night. Getting the shots of the buildings between an almost non-existent town of Yorkville (blink and you miss it) and Boonville was quite easy as the traffic was very light. Mum has a real thing for these buildings and is hoping to get enough to fill a small album. She has quite a few already but we came across around 10 in this one area. Most people probably wouldn't see the...

Nov 5, 2006 - Where are we Now, and Where are we Going?

THURS - SUN, Oct 27-29: We are parked at the Elks Lodge in Keizer, OR, just a few miles from Salem. The Elks have put in a very nice RV Park here, full hookups, asphalt roads, even a laundry. And the rate is reasonable. We had lunch in the lodge Friday, came back for their Halloween Party / dinner (prime rib) Saturday evening, and brunch on Sunday. It was a vacation for those of us who cook in the RV! Saturday night we went to Mass at St. Edward's church. In the church parking lot we noticed a number of children dressed up in costume, and...

Oct 18, 2006 - Manteca, CA

Well, we have arrived back at what we like to call 'homebase'. It is a campground located on the banks of the San Joaquin River in Manteca. We will be here for the next couple of weeks visiting friends & family as well as taking care of some Dr visits. We probably won't be doing any updates during our time in Manteca time BUT on 11/02 Ken & I head for China for a 2 week tour. We hope to figure out how to do updates from Internet Cafes while we are there, I'm not sure either one of us is adequately 'tech savvy' to actually accomplish this....

Sep 10, 2006 - Yosemite Park

We spent a little more time in Sonoma catching up on odd jobs, email etc, and decided to call ahead to San Francisco tourism to see where we could find to stay as there didn't seem to be any campsites for the city listed in our Lonely Planet. It was a good job that we did because, as it turned out, a conference was about to start that very week and every hotel, hostel, B&B and carpark was absolutely jammed. We decided on a hasty change of itinerary (if our slap-dash approach to planning could even be called that) and set off for Yosemite,...

Aug 15, 2006 - Stockton, CA

Monday and Tuesday, July 14-15 On the way from the RV park to the coast, we stopped at the "Drive Through" tree. A giant redwood that has a tunnel cut through it so that car's can drive through it. We could not take the camper through, but we took pictures standing beside it. The road over the mountains to the coast and the coast highway were both very interesting the road to the coast was very steep with numerous curves. The coastal highway also had a number of sections with steep grades and sharp curves. Was definitely challenging with a...

May 28, 2006 - Yosemite National Park

May 28, 2006 Yosemite National Park, Wow! What a place to visit. We spent 2 days at Yosemite, driving most of the time. We planned an easy ride to the park, however, there were two rockslides blocking the route, Hwy 140. I had picked a campground just 23 miles from the park entrance. Reservations had to be made months in advance because Yosemite is the busiest park in the US. No way could we change our campground plans. The drive to the south entrance was 83 miles. It did not seem too bad until we started. It took us 3 hours to get to the...

Jan 28, 2006 - Day One - Western Loop Vacation

Ann came over last night to start her house sitting bout. She brought a roast beef dinner wither her!! This is a Keeper for sure!! Not a very exciting bit of news but as long as I have network access I may as well log today's activities. Got up about 315 this morning and packed. WE left about 4:30. We made our first stop in Wilsonville (a few miles South of Portland) for breakfast. We had high winds and rain all the way and it continued till we got to the Siskiyou mountain pass. The Oregon State Police had a notice up that chains needed to...

Mar 15, 2005 - Coming home again, Wolfe be damned.

At a certain point, it became clear to me that to move the Yanui Beach Project forward, I would have to return to America where I could fundraise the most effectively. The outreach from friends and family during the first two months was significant---using only the internet we had raised a good portion of our total budget. But now it was time to collect some big checks from people/institutions who were in the position to underwrite the balance of what was needed. And so, rather uncerimoniously, on a sunny Wednesday afternoon, I packed up my...
