Day 3 to Arizona from PNW

Short day today. Redding to Vaccaville. Staying at the Vinyard RV park which I recommend. We'll stay 3 nights to get acclimated to sunshine and 72 degrees then move on to Bakerfield and east through the Mohave.
Sorry, Glen, I didn't read your post suggesting breakfast this morning in Redding. That was nice of you to suggest it and then, hearing no response to find us just as we were pulling out of camp in Redding. We would have met up with you had I read your post.

Good day today through the rice fields and almond orchards of north central Ca.

We bought our unit in Nevada last summer and then drove it to Florida and then back to Washington State. I write because I was so happy to see someone write that 350 miles of driving in a day is a lot ad 250 miles driving makes for so much more marital bliss!

Thanks
Tim

day 4 non travel

anyone can drive the long days but not all of us do it with the same ease. We're just old enough that too many hours in the truck seat cause the lower back to ache a little, the legs to feel like they need a good walk and the brain to go a little numb. Even though I'm pretty religious about two hour break intervals we feel better with 250 mi days.

Say what you will about California this morning is beautiful.

Lou

We travel cross country with the Airstream quite often. We also prefer a 250 to 300 mile travel day. We have gotten to where we make a short stop about every 90 minutes. We still occasionally do a 500 mile day, but it kind of beats us up now that we are old people. We also sometimes do 50 mile days when some unexpected attraction catches our eye. Such is the beauty of Airstreaming.

Your dog is gorgeous. I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures, especially your favorite spots and the most dog-friendly spots.

I have two herniated discs and a fractured back. Not sure how any of it happened, but being treated and getting better with a very good chiropractor. What he says is mandatory and people, really anyone, but for people over 55 is to stop every two hours get out and walk around for just a couple of minutes, the more the better and by so doing relieves the pressure off the discs and subsequent leg pain. We tried it without the AS this past weekend with great results. It's a pain to stop every two ours but better than arriving tired and ache all over.

Enjoy

Bud

We're still buried in the snow although the roads are finally clean and bare. Maple syrup time is here as days are above freezing. Camping is still a distant dream but it's coming.
