Jun 4, 2008 - Getting ready

It is less then 3 weeks prior to our trip. We have the trailer loaded with non-parishables already. I have our entire route mapped out including places to stop for gas. I am trying out this website out to see how it works. I will keep everyone updated on our travels.

Jan 25, 2008 - Back to Lancaster, CA

We made it back to Lancaster again. I think this is the first time I've seen CA all GREEN on the weather map. We stayed in Indio last night and came the rest of the way today. When we got to the top of the I-15 where we would have gotten on the 138 to go to Palmdale, it was snowing and required chains to go up past the Wrightwood area. So we went straight toward Victorville, took the 395 to the 18 to the 138. There wasn't as much wind as they said we were going to get and only a little rain. There is SNOW everywhere around us on the...

Jan 1, 2008 - Happy New Year!

We would like to wish you all a very happy, healthy New Year! We were in Lancaster and are making the journey to Tucson, AZ for some motorhome fixes. We have stopped for today in Quartzsite, AZ. This will be the location of the new website, which will work better than the last website. My new year's resolution is to update the website often!

We may also be in CA...

Sep 30, 2007 - Back in Lancaster

On Aug. 27th. we returned to Lancaster, Ca. Pete's back was giving him trouble while we were at Powell. So with the help of Jim, Nancy & another friend (Bill) we were able to return back home with family & friends. We are staying at the Elks Lodge & will be here through the holidays. We hope that we will be hitting the highways in late December, early January. We thank Jim, Nancy & Bill for all the help. Pete & I also thank Phil, Scott for all their help here at the lodge.

Dec 29, 2006 - Christmas in Lancaster, CA

As we noted in the last entry the 5th wheel need a lot of repairs and we told you that we got a lot of the problems fixed. Actually we got them fixed by trading it in on a new rig. The photos on this entry are of our new Motorhome. It's our Christmas present to ourselves, also birthdays, anniversarys, and all other special occasions for the next many years. It is a 2003, 40 foot Monaco Dynasty with 3 slides, a 400 HP Cummins diesel, 6 speed Allison automatic transmission and a tag axle. Got all the bells and whistles. It also has a monthly...

Nov 10, 2006 - Over the Mountains and Through the Desert

Before we go into this adventure, go back to our "Home Page" and take a peek at "View Guestbook" in the upper right corner. Some of our readers send us mail using this feature rather than the regular e-mail system. We publish some of them in the Guestbook, so that you can read them. If you'd like to be "published" on the Internet, leave us a message through the website! When last we wrote we were at Stockton, CA and headed for the Coalinga Elks Lodge. We spent two nights there, had a wonderful ribeye steak dinner for Suzy's birthday, and...

Jun 12, 2006 - Sequoia National Park, CA

The past week has been a blur of airports and of packing and repacking my luggage. Carmel and I returned from Portugal on June 5th and then I turned around the next day and flew back to Wash DC from London. I had a few days in Baltimore to get caught up with family and friends and then it was time to pack once again to head back out west. Ed and I flew to Arizona yesterday to pick up my car and things and began the drive to Seattle where my next job assignment is. We were able to put in about 500 miles and made it all the way to Palmdale,...

Jun 8, 2006 - Calico Ghost Town

Dad got in a hurry and didn't get all the info from mom before the last update. I was typing a little slow. Good thing I had my nails clipped before we left or this would have been even harder. So, here is a little bit more from Hollister first: Mom mailed more postcards to friends who don't have computers. She is going to have to print some of the pictures and mail them back to Oregon by snail-mail. We are living in a 27-foot travel trailer and there are two laptop computers and two printers on board, as well as two cell phones. Yup, I am...

Mar 26, 2005 - Flight back to LAX and my first days back

FLIGHT BACK TO LAX The flight back to LAX was easy. I flew with my buddy Joe. At the check-in counter I tried everything to get American to waive our $100 change fee, but they wouldn't budge. I even offered to point out which words from the sign (pictured here) on the counter were misspelled. Denied! However, I did save Joe $150. He was just about to upgrade, but I told him he was crazy. We were flying on a 757. First Class is terrible on these planes (no footrest), and I heard coach was empty. When we landed he thanked me. Both of us had a...
