Auburn, CA Area

Does anyone have any recommendations for campin/fishing around the Auburn area. We are looking at a day or two at French Meadows. Does anyone know which campsites would handle my TV and 31' TT?

Thanks,
Mac

Mac1, How nice. I will be out College May 8th my last day. That is only half of the story. My Advertising Agency still needs me.

We will be taking short trips for now. Have fun.

Hey mac , if your travels bring you thru Duluth, Mn and you're in a need for a spot, there is a real neat spot in Cloquet, Mn. It's run by the city and is on the St. Louis river. Also we are located just 25 miles North of Brainerd, Mn and can host you with a spot for some local interests. We're in the Wally directory, if ned be. Have a safe and fun travel.
Best,

WayWard Wind,
Thank you for the info and it looks like we will be going through Duluth and are planning on stopping in the Brainerd area overnight. We have a directory and will give you a call if it looks like we will be on schedule and have time. We are scheduled to travel 524 miles that day (Sault Ste Marie to Brainerd). How is Rt 210 for towing, speed limit, etc. Thank you for the offer.

Mac and Linda

Finals Week....Yee Haw!
We are leaning hard on GO!
I got my double lipped seals and spare outer wheel bearings from P&S Travel Trailers yesterday. Hopefully I can repack the bearings in the next day or two, get the truck serviced, have the breaks checked, get the finals graded and posted, plan a Bon Voyage party, celebrate Mother's Day with my Mother in Law and my wife and hit the road.

Can't wait

Well it's almost time. The stops are defined, lists are being checked twice, truck is being serviced, dog and cats records are collected, dog is scheduled for dip and check up. Grades will be turned in Monday, graduation is Saturday. We'll celebrate Mother's Day then.......
I can't wait, I think I will sleep in the camper tonight just to get used to it.

Can anybody else feel the pull? It can't be the full moon, it must be the silver one.

Mac

I'm chiming in with CanoeStream about the Beartooth Hwy. DON't miss it! However, leave your Airstream behind and make it a day trip with the truck, across and back again. It's a drive and a day you'll always remember, but we for sure will never pull our Airstream over. Hope you can make it and report back here on the adventure ~G

I don't want to share this. There is an unimproved (no plug-ins or dump station) state forest campground under the pines that is the most sublime, peaceful experience I have ever known. If you are coming from da U.P. toward Superior/Duluth and running later than you thought -- won't make it to Brainerd and it is not a weekend -- stop and boondock at the Bois Brule state forest campground just SW of the town of Brule half an hour east of Superior, WI. Trout fisher people need apply... Don't bother on Friday or Saturday -- you'll need to get there early to find a site big enough for a medium Airstream. Pit toilets only -- you'll need a Water Thief or jerry can for fresh water from the hand pump. Better yet, stay an extra day and go into town, rent a canoe and have the Brule River Canoe Rental drive you upstream for a leisurly paddle back down to the campground. Please, nobody except Mac1 take note of this jewel or else it will be too crowded next time I want to go there.

Bob,
Thanks for the tip, as I was going over the route on AAA looking for gas stations I came accross Brule. We will certainly keep it in mind. I know that this area is going to be spectacular, I just wish we did'nt have a timeline to meet. We have to cover quite a bit of country in a short period of time in order to spend time with the grandkids. Perhaps we will get a chance to retrace our path with them and do some fishing to boot in the next few years.
Thanks,
Mac and Linda

Smile Local cusine information requested.

Those of you who may be following our journey please let us know where you have found the best local restaurants that are masters of regional specialties.
The smells and tastes of this great land are every bit as important as the visual sights and sounds in enjoying the journey (as well as the friendly people).
Thank you,
Mac and Linda

Trailer is almost ready

The trailer wheel bearings were cleaned and repacked yesterday and the breaks were readjusted. Brake pads looked very good (new last year). Truck will be checked out by my mechanic this week. I have someone to mow the yard, the neighbors have volunteered to keep an eye on things and water the plants.....Grades were turned in today, graduation on Saturday.......close to GO!
