    Over 1/2 Way Home

    August 30, 2017 in the United States

    It took us three days of driving, but we're now out of California. But not out of the smoke. It was really thick closer to the Oregon/California border but still a fair bit here in Medford, OR as well.

    Aside from the smoke taking away from the scenic beauty along parts of the route and a minor incident with the trailer where we damaged the step and now can no longer use it to get in and out, it's been smooth sailing.

    Each day has started at a leisurely pace with getting ourselves fed and washed and then readying the trailer for the drive. With everyone pitching in its been easy.

    We generally drive for a couple of hours and then stop somewhere. One day it was at a designated rest stop on the highway, another in downtown Merced, where we went for a walk and found an ice cream shop.

    Yesterday we drove through an area full of nut growing ranches and we stopped at a nut store. We picked up some pistachios and a nut mix. One of the workers invited us outside to show us a pistachio tree and explained the process of picking and processing pistachios. She also showed us a male and a female pistachio tree. Do you know how you can tell them apart?

    Then, before arriving at our campground we might stop for groceries so that we don't need to unhook the trailer.

    The KOA's have all been great. We've been able to enjoy playing ping pong or pool at most as well as use the swimming pool when it's been hot. Yesterday, in Oroville we were able to walk a short distance to a huge Casino on the property. Not to gamble but to have dinner in the restaurant. We actually didn't walk there. We were about to but were able to hop on a free shuttle cart.

    Natural Bridge

    August 17, 2017 in the United States

    Die natural bridge ist eine geologische Merkwürdigkeit: Ein Fluß fließt auf einer Strecke von etwa 70 Metern durch einen ehemaligen Lavatunnel und kommt dann mit großem Getöse wieder heraus. Dazwischen liegt das Flußbett trocken und bildet die natürliche Brücke.

    Adventures in packing

    July 24, 2016 in the United States

    We're almost ready to leave. I'm carrying stuff for mom and stepdad, so I had to borrow their larger suitcase to fit it all in. Bless whomever first thought to add wheels to luggage.

    Greyhound Busfahrt Tacoma Redding 900 km

    September 29, 2017 in the United States

    Ca. 15 Stunden Busfahrt von Tacoma in Washington nach Redding von 8:30 bis 23:15, dann weiter mit Privattaxi, genannt uber. Das war ne lange Fahrt, aber ging schneller vorbei als ich dachte, auch hier lernte man interessante Leute kennen. Die Busfahrerin fuhr recht tough, dabei quatschte sie nach hinten mit einer alten Omi, die sehr laut war und ein riesiges Handy hatte. Sehr freundlich und geduldig die busfahrerin. Mit meiner Hand klappte es, hatte Angst wegen des schweren Gepäcks überhaupt zur Bushaltestelle zu kommen, die aber mit ca. 500 meter nicht so weit weg war.
    Das Haus von Anthony und Adriana liegt ruhig am Stadtrand. Wir haben ein kleines Zimmer und kleines Bad, das riesige Wohneßzimmer dürfen wir mitnutzen.

    Drive to Merlin

    July 30, 2017 in the United States

    We headed out the redwoods and turned northeast onto 199 through a very scenic river valley up to Grants Pass, OR.

    There were lots of people jumping off rocks into the river - it looked really fun and on any other day we would have stopped but we knew we were gonna no to be in the water plenty soon and so kept going.

    The temperature in Grants Pass was 103. It was forecast to be 115 by Wednesday! So we ignored the campground reservation I had made and opted for a motel, complete with pizza and screen time.

    Side note: It's too easy to fall into this trap - so glad we have the van and are mostly outside.

    Medford KOA

    November 8, 2016 in the United States

    We CAN'T be this tired from just 2-1/2 hours driving! I think we are still recovering from two months of being hyper-focused. Early to bed tonight.

    Kurzer Abstecher nach Oregon auf dem Weg zurück in den Süden. Highlights: Jacksonville, ein supersüßes Städtchen, und - natürlich - die unglaublich schöne Landschaft...
