Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort – Nicolaus, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 135 miles from Redding to Nicolaus, California. We are parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. We will depart later this morning.

The below Google Earth image shows the area. Since we spent only one night, we decided to boondock (no utilities) rather than park in a regular site where I would have been required to un-hitch the Bronco then re-hitch it this morning. The arrow shows our boondocking location away from all the other campers where we enjoyed a pleasant quiet night’s rest…

I took a short walk to the lake edge to take a couple of photos…



This park is a convenient location 113 miles north of Mary’s home where we will arrive later today. We always enjoy our stops here.


With regards to my upcoming cataract pre-op exam and consultation is set for September 29 at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California…surgery is scheduled for October 9th.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny day and 78 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 67 degrees.

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

The red dot on the below map shows our approximate location in the State of California. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


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!
