We are now in Lancaster, California. It is in the high desert about 48 miles from Dianna's parents in Granada Hills. On the trip down Tuesday we had the truck and trailer washed so it looks presentable again. We came down highway 99 to Bakersfield, then over Tehachipie Pass into Mojave, then down to Lancaster. The pass is much easier to go over than I-5 over the Grapevine.
We are staying at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds RV park. It is only $25 a night instead of the $55 per night at the park we used to stay at in Valencia. We plan to be here for a little over a week so the savings is significant. It is farther away from her parents but it only takes an hour to get there.
We went down yesterday and Dianna is going again today. We did some yard work for them and had dinner with them as well. The ride down on the scooter was not fun due to the horrible winds here right now. Dianna drove their car back but I rode the scooter. It was dark by then and I had forgotten to take a warm jacket so the ride back was even less fun than the trip down. I forgot the Boy Scout motto!
Today and tomorrow the winds are forecast to be nasty as a front passes through. I even had to tie a rope from the end of my satellite arm to the truck to keep the wind from twisting it. Lovely place.
Back in the real world again. Does Alaska seem like a dream now?ReplyDelete
Was "moto" a clever pun on "moto-scooter", or just a typo? (Are you clever or careless?)
No, it does not seem like a dream but we have very fond memories that are still quite vivid. I think we may return again some day.ReplyDelete
Just careless. I'm not that clever. Mom usually sends me an email when she finds a boo boo. You beat her to it this time. It's fixed.
I guess I should do it by email the next time, instead of "airing your dirty laundry"!ReplyDelete
Trust me. No one thinks I am perfect!ReplyDelete
Yes, Daryl! Check with me, and I can tell you all about e-mail editing.ReplyDelete
And how did you find Dianna's parents after all these months? Are they doing well?ReplyDelete
Did you get Dianna a laptop?ReplyDelete
Donna -- We found them by turning left on Lorilard and then left on McLennan.... sorry. Couldn't resist. They are about the same. Her Dad has to have more surgery on his face, but that is nothing new. Her Mom is using a walker most of the time due to foot problems and general unsteadiness.ReplyDelete
Don -- Shush! Our anniversary is this week and I am planning a surprise. Don't give it away. After 39 years I figure she has earned a new laptop.
