Redding, California

Mary is traveling with her 14-year-old grandson on a trip to Turkey. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

Yesterday I drove the 131 miles from Nicolaus to Redding, California. Most of the trip was on California Highway 99, a much more pleasant drive than yesterday’s drive on Interstate Highway 5. Much of 99 passes through miles of orchards…

Along the way I stopped at a couple of GoodWill stores to buy some used books to add to my waiting-to-be read collection. Arriving at Redding, I parked at Moose Lodge #1006…


And the usual dinette window photo…


Yesterday was a sunny day at 95 degrees. Forecast for Redding today is sunny at 95 degrees. Too dang hot! This morning I’m heading due west to the California coast to escape this terrible heat. The forecast for my destination of McKinleyville is only 60 degrees. A little cool but much better than this horrible heat!

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
