The motorhome is parked in Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart here tomorrow.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted October 10, 2013…

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 135 miles from Redding to Nicolaus, California.

 

I started the day driving south on Interstate Highway 5…

After about 30 miles I reached Red Bluff on got on California Highway 99 South. With slower speed limits and a lot less of 18 wheelers, it’s a lot less stressful and more pleasant drive through miles of fruit orchards. It goes through a number of small towns with an occasional traffic light…

There are no pull-thru sites, so I backed the Bronco in first and hitched back up to the motorhome so I’m ready to roll this morning…

Lake Minden is a convenient place to spend the night when approaching Mary’s home from the north. I’ll continue my southerly journey later this morning. Google Earth is telling me I’ve got 113 miles to go until I arrive at Mary’s home at Murphys, California.

 

Last night I watched another old movie from the 1940’s. This time it was 1943 – Ox Bow with Henry Fonda. Another classic!

 

Enjoying Thousand Trails RV Resorts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
