Friday 465 miles

Took about 9 hours with stops, "road work," and staying around 60 mph for best gas mileage. At 10 mpg and about $100 to fill the tank, we try to save as much as we can.

I can't believe we used to do the whole trip to Coarsegold in one 14-hour day. We were younger, more determined, and used the car instead of the RV!

Stopped in Minden, Nevada-- just outside Carson City-- at the Caron Valley RV Inn and RV park for the night. Very nice facility and very helpful staff. Rates not too bad with Good Sams card.

Off to Coarsegold today with a stop for dinner in Fresno with friends Patti and Mike. Then on to our former neighbor Evelyn's for a couple of days. Will nice not to be moving tomorrow.

And we're off!

Finally on the road. Seems like no matter how much you plan and get done the days before a trip, there's always SOMETHING that needs to done.

And of course we are hitting the usual. "road work" on the way to Winnemucca-- oh joy!

California, here we come.

Wow -- almost vacation

I just now realized that I can shut off my morning alarm clock until August. NO more getting up early! I'm ALMOST on vacation! Only have my ASB school audit on Monday afternoon with the new CPA firm and then I'm finished with this school year until the beginning of August.

AND in a week we'll be on our vacation trip. Going to LA/Arcadia to visit with my 96 year old aunt. Haven't seen her in 5 years. Oh and we'll be seeing my sister and her family along with some friends. Will be a nice visit. Also going to go camping on the way home in Great Basin National Park.

It's supposed to have "the solitude of the desert, the smell of sagebrush after a thunderstorm, the darkest of night skies, and the beauty of Lehman Caves." But we'll be just after  the "Most “super” supermoon of 2013 on June 22-23." We'll probably see more moon than stars.

We'll keep you posted on our trip.

 Happy Friday! :)
