Great sequence Kristiana! And Carol, that is too perfect. Great catch.
Michelle the Rescuer parked in a friend's vineyard (and got trapped behind the security gate, but that's another story...) enroute from the rally to destinations north, and stayed here overnight. We relived the rally looking at all the photos she'd downloaded, and I got much vicarious pleasure (nevermind the awe!) looking at photos of her cross-county adventures.

Janet,
I enjoyed staying in the hills overlooking Monterey. I will really be impressed when you tell me you towed your trailer up and down that Mountain you call a driveway!

The roads were bad. They launched everything on the bed onto the floor. Once I got north of the Bay area they got much better.
I am now just across the border in Oregon. Camping on the beach. Wow! The sun is just now setting.

That's what a Women's Rally can do for YOU!
Debra -- Yay! SHE CAN do it! So glad to get this report 'cause to tell the truth I'm starting to get a little nervous about the backing up part again. Not giving up though... Some very patient silver sisters will be on hand for me at the Summer Solstice rally. Right, ladies?

So, tell me more about this programmable coffee maker. I'll be shopping for one for the Bambi soon. Any recommendations?

Hang in there Michelle, you're almost there!

Where did you run into the "bad" roads?

Hi Jamie,

There is no need to get anxious! Our sites at Poor Farmer's are pull throughs. Just make sure where ever you stop between those two points are pull throughs as well. No matter what, you can do it. Just repeat this over and over until you believe it!!!

I love my trailer coffee pot! It is a 12 cup(I love my morning POT of coffee ) Cuisinart with a thermal carafe. It really comes in handy to just take it outside with me so that I don't have to keep going back inside for a refill. It is also handy from an electrical standpoint. After the coffee finishes dripping there is no more draw on the electricity.

June 21 is getting closer!!

Vickie

Laurel,
CA 17, I-880, I-580 were all bouncy. US 101 just north of Golden Gate bridge was rough as well. Once I got to Peteluma they smoothed out. I am still on 101 in Oregon.

Seriously, you two saved the day. I locked myself out in Florida and had to call the locksmith to get in!

Sure is a beautiful view where Janet and Michelle were at. Another story?...

We'll be easily recognized at the Summer Solstice, Vickie. You'll be the one carrying around the coffee pot; I'll be the one following with a coffee cup.

Gorgeous view from your yard, Janetb!

"Launched everything on the bed onto the floor?" Ouch, hope all your stuff is okay!!! Some of our California roads seem to be in pretty bad shape. When we tow our trailer on the 405 through West LA is feels like we are being beaten to death....I am sure our trailer isn't too happy about it either.

Thank you again for your very kind hospitality at Lake Cachuma.....and I look forward to reading more about your travels and hope to see you on the road again....take care, paula
