Here is a pic of Annette, Vana Blue, and Freya too happily set up in Casa de Fruita.
Hey Dan, I just found your reply. It was so great meeting you and I must say your enthusiasm is totally contagious. I think it's amazing that you came to Casa to lend support to Cam. And thanks for posting the pic. In it I was excitedly connecting the coaxial (sp?) cable and for the first time in a couple of weeks was able to watch tv on my laptop using a tuner. Worked like a charm.
So speaking of full speed ahead....I absolutely totally without a doubt HATED driving the California freeways through Sacramento, Oakland and San Jose. After Casa de Fruta I decided to try a little R&R on the coast at my friends' home. I must say, as nice as this is, I feel bad that Freya is parked outside, cold and lonely. The Vespa, however, has been used quite extensively.
What I've learned from just a couple of weeks on the road is that it is difficult to be spontaneous when you are pulling a trailer, and if you're not totally sure where you're going, you're screwed. So I will do a little more research before I head out for the next leg of my trip which will probably be after christmas, toward arizona.
More later...it is blowing like hell and I think we may be on the verge of losing electricity.
