Jan 27, 2019 - Off to see The Wizard

1-27 Our days visiting Daphne and Marie sadly over, we launch into the traffic of S. CA...well, actually, Bon does, I'm just an observer trying not to be too much of a front seat driver! Left about 9 am and find ourselves on the road much longer than expected due to unexpected traffic. As usual, Bon performed magnificently arriving at Ron's about 5. He had been gracious enough to open his guest quarters a day earlier than expected but having a bit of a sore throat eliminated his plans for the evening...we stayed in and talked. This may not...

Apr 21, 2017 - Cross the border to Ron's

4/21 Up and out early from our 'cave' in Encinata...got to the border by 9:30 am and after cooking in line until 10:45 we had no problems entering the US... ___ Gas in the US is cheaper than MX, so we filled up at a Costco in Chula Vista and got to Ron's by 3 pm....typical CA traffic, fast, then sloooow, even stop, then gradually speed up only to slow and coast along for several miles again. Ha!

Mar 23, 2017 - Visit Julie Steinbach

11/23 Heavy traffic with Red doing just fine with his new New distributor, ha! We arrive about 4 and chat and do some catching up...then Julie was off to a meeting...she's very busy with lots of volunteer work thru church and other community organizations. When she returned we went to dinner at a local Afghanistan restaurant, Walter's. Good food good friends...what could be better?!! Her sister back in Wisconsin, went on Bon's last AYH trip back in 1977!

Dec 26, 2015 - Claremont with Ron

12/26 Due to Bon's exception logistical planning our travel has been relatively hassle free.  The plan for today began with a shuttle back to the airport, this time with the 2 checked bags and 2 others filled with sleeping bags,  2 small tents, & misc. stuff not needed for India/Indonesia. Fron the airport we caught the FlyAway bus to LA Union Rail station where we connected with the 10:30 am MetroLink to Claremont. Great friend Ron was magically at the station when we arrived having gotten our text informing him of our impending arrival,...

Nov 19, 2015 - Travel S. to L.A. - First Ron's in Claremont

11/19 We had a fast turnaround in Missoula unpacking cold weather gear/clothes and repacking for our trip S.

Instead, we don't leave Missoula until 1:30 after a short stop to visit our friend Shirl Braxton who may...

Apr 10, 2011 - Claremont

Left Joe and Noree late this am after a very laidback, enjoyable visit...walking Phil and talking with Joe lots. Arr in Claremont just as son, Christopher was about to leave after moving out (now into apt). Got to see Amy (Ron's X) briefly for first time in long time. Walked to Sat market (Claremont is very walkable community), then spent rest of day chatting about lives, plans, possibilities, and (what else?) politics. Did watch a great ending to Masters and a fine French 160 mile bike race Paris-Roubaix Race Thru Hell . We toured Ron's...
