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.
