Oct 5, 2017 - Hemet Elks Rally

We celebrated my birthday a little early, along with my Mother’s belatedly, with family on the weekend. Today we headed out to Hemet to attend the Southern California Elks RV Rally, a charitable fundraiser “for the Children” of our California/Hawaiian Fund. It was held at a nice RV Resort, Golden Village Palms, with two swimming pools and three Jacuzzis. Attendance for the rally was up, there were many more RVs this year than last, and it was very successful in raising funds and much fun was had. We parked our RV with a mixed group of...

Oct 10, 2014 - Elks Rally in Hemet

We moved down to Hemet for the Elks Rally on the 8th. Daisy rides well in the motorhome, in fact, she put her head on my lap and closed her eyes. The Elks RV Rally is a fund raising event for the California-Hawaii combined Charity - crippled children. It seemed to be a smaller turn out of RVers than previous years, but there were still fun events and vendors and socializing. We had paid for most of the meals so we met a lot of new people at each meal. It was attended by many lodges from Southern California, mostly from Orange County and...

Feb 2, 2014 - Superbowl was not a superbowl

missed a couple of pictures from our hike to Diamond Lake. We went to the museum at Diamond Lake where it explained how the lake was made the ancient bones that were discovered. It took several years to build the lake therefore there was limited time on the digs. You will all be happy to hear that it was cold enough to snow in the mountains here, we could actually see the snow. There was frost on the car. Superbowl party at the clubhouse here, its a potluck, byob and watch the game on a big screen TV.

Jan 29, 2014 - Hiking

Went for a drive to Diamond Valley Lake which is a man made lake about 4.5 miles long. It is 22.7 miles around the lake, about 40km. Needless to say we did not hike that far but did hike 4 miles about 6 km around the lake. We stopped and spoke to a guy on a mountain bike who advised us that rattlesnakes would be coming out in about a month. We enjoyed the hike without the snakes!!!!!! Enjoy the pictures!

Jan 22, 2014 - Wine Tasting

We are using our bike, just not very confident on the roads with all the traffic. Went on a wine tasting trip, only made it to two wineries before we had too much to drink. Good thing we had a designated driver. The wineries are only about 20 minutes from here and the are about 20 different wineries. We drove out into the middle of nowhere and then all of a sudden winery after winery. We REALLY liked the second winery we went to all the wine tasting was free.

Jan. 21, 2014 - Day 98 Hi everyone, well it's Tues. morning & I'm just sitting here doing the blogs.

Jan. 20, 2014 - Day 97 So it is Mon. & a Happy Birthday to our niece Erica. Janet made a call to Bob's RV service dept. & yes they had the 30/20A breaker we needed.

He checked it out top to bottom & even checked all the wiring in the breaker box with no viable problems but his professional...

Jan 20, 2014 - Italian nite

18 Jan Had to do more grocery shopping so off to Walmart we went. $100 bux later, got food and a new vaccum for motorhome, vaccum was only $38 bux, good buy but then had to vaccum, lol. The drudgery of housework or should I say motorhome work. Life in an RV park is ruff and tuff. Had to the go for a swim to refresh and rejuvenate. Later we went to an Italian food nite in the clubhouse. It was a pot luck dinner and of course there was way too much food but it was soooooo good. I've never been to a potluck where you had to also bring your own...
