May 19, 2019 - Ontario, CA to New Orleans
This will be a pretty crazy trip, but my Dad always has these wild ideas. He has set up for us to travel from Dallas to Miami with little stops along the way. Then we are to take a Caribbean Cruise. After that, we are to drive to Key West. Drive back to Dallas. Dad arranged all of the specifics for the trip, booking AirBnB style places where we could stay along the way, a bit of a task because he needs rooms that are accessible. Lisa and I need separate rooms. And, well, it was a lot of work. So, I have been working like crazy trying to...Jump to full entry
Jan 28, 2018 - Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch....
We are back on the road again but wanted to fill you in on “Meanwhile Back at the Ranch” aka back in Covina visiting family and friends. Our final stop on our last adventure was in Pismo Beach to see my best friend, Fran. We stayed at the nearby Elks Lodge and I got to spend quality time with my BFF who I’ve known since 3rd grade. We stayed at the Ontario Elks Lodge for a few weeks to see mom, the kids and Kaia. Kaia and I went to Disneyland one day and we were able to go trick or treating with her along her parents, aunt and uncles and...Jump to full entry
Jun 5, 2017 - Blue Highway #1
Greetings from Naval Weapons Station China Lake! Our first journal will be a short update on our lives since our last trip. As many of you knew, we left Florida earlier than anticipated because of my dad’s hospitalization. He was very ill and we felt it best we get back to California as soon as possible. He was discharged but was very weak. He received in home therapy and made some improvements so we left for our annual trip to Spring Training. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized again and passed away on March 21st and we had we laid him to...Jump to full entry
May 16, 2017 - We arrived!
Hurrah, we made it to Ontario, CA to begin our Run for the Wall! We left home at 6:00 am and arrived here about 12:15. Everyone was super friendly and gave lots of hugs. They really appreciate vets and constantly thank those who served. Larry proudly wears his Viet Nam Infantry hat!! We already had one meeting and will have another one in the morning early. We were told that about 1500 bikes have registered so far in all 3 groups. They put everyone into platoons while riding. We are in platoon #10 which is trikes with a trailer. We got...Jump to full entry
Apr 3, 2011 - Ontario, California
First day on the road and our first stop is also our very first Elks Lodge!!! Got here a little after 5 pm (a little later start from Ceres than we planned). I only drove the first two hours and Sam drove the rest of the way (I was on the laptop using Streets and Trips---I so love that program)! Sam even wanted to drive in LA traffic. Walked into the lounge to get our rv spot and one of the old boys at the bar says haven't seen you around here and shook Sam's hand and welcomed him. After Sam told the guy that we were from the Modesto Elks...Jump to full entry
Jan 24, 2010 - Yummy things from Southern California
There are lots of yummy things grown in Southern California and 2 of them we saw this week are Graber Olives and The California Citrus Historical Park. The Graber Olive House is the oldest olive packing plant in the U.S. and while the olives have all been picked and canned for the year, we toured the packing plant which began in 1894. Their olive groves are in central California and picked when they are a cherry-red color. They are picked by hand and dropped into felt lined buckets to keep them from bruising. They are then shipped to...Jump to full entry
Apr 16, 2008 - Day 4 - Ontario LA
Day 4 Wednesday, 16th April 2008 Ontario LA (19 E15)Problem # 2 , this morning - there was so much water pressure in the camp that it blew the shower fitting off the hose in the shower, but Steve managed to fix this quite easily. We then headed off rather late 10.30 as all these nice folk just wanted to keep talking and showing us various maps and caravan park books etc. Decided to make up some time and head straight down hwy 101S towards LA. We were heading east on the Interstate 10E Steve did great driving and I did spectacular...Jump to full entry
