Sep 12, 2012 - Boondocking Near Old Station, CA

Boon-docking Near Old Station, CA September 12, 2012 We left the Sno Park near South Lake Tahoe this morning. It's an easy drive down Carson Canyon on CA 89 to Minden, NV where we picked up US 395 and drove as far north as Susanville, CA. Here we picked up CA 44 then headed west. We took a lunchtime break at a rest area and then proceeded on to CA 89 just north of Old Station. We drove south a little to where there is a small A Frame building which houses the US Forest Service information center. We picked up several brochures about the...

Time To Look For Cooler Temps May 29, 2012 Well it's gotten a little hot here in Moab and the forcast is for even hotter temps to come, so we've decided to head off in search of some cooler place.

There are a few places between here and there that should prove interesting as well. No real plans just go and see what we can find. But before we leave tomorrow we are going to find a pictograph panel...

In fact, we were usually able to maintain our speed limit of 55. The only real holdup we had was at the California inspection station. The little lady there wanted to come inside to inspect my fresh produce. That didn’t take long and we were...

Aug 8, 2008 - Old Station, CA

Today was great! As we drove from Eagle Lake to the Lassen National Forest and towards Old Station, we enjoyed great views of heavily forested rolling hills. Occasionally, the forest would open up into huge meadows, actually reservoirs that apparently would hold water if we weren't in a drought. The area was beautiful and we really enjoyed traveling on HWY44. Once we got to HWY 89, we made our left turn and began looking for our campground. The Woodalls book listed it, just a quarter mile down the road...well, two and a half miles later, we...
