Palm Creek Again

Last week on the 17th of November, we arrived back in Palm Creek Resort and Residences in Casa Grande, Arizonia. Our traveling companions, Kirk and Terry showed up the next day.

Kelly bought a set of used Callaway golf clubs and a Ping golf bag for Pam at a local rummage sale and has been using them to golf a few times.

Days are warm in the high 60’s; nights are in the low 40’s. The sun shines every day. We have enjoyed walking and relaxing. And the night sky is beautiful.

Saturday, we drove to Phoenix to test drive Lectric eBikes. Pretty much decided we will get the new 3.0 Step through bikes when we return to Arizonia. Stopped by the Airstream dealer for fun and then ended our day at the San Tan Brewery.

Jojoba Hills SKP – California

Where are Pam and Kelly - Go to Calendar / Events in the Menu

Not much to blog about this week. We got tired of the rain in northern California and not being able to do much outside. So, we left Crescent City on Monday and headed south.

Monday, we traveled 248 miles to Redwood Empire Campground in Ukiah, California. A simple overnight stay.

Tuesday, we traveled 348 miles to Lost Hills KOA in Lost Hills, California. All we did here was rest, sleep and go.

Wednesday, we traveled 181 miles to Shady Lane RV Campground in Barstow, California. This was a very tight no frills campground. Easy in / Easy out.

On Thursday, we traveled 141 miles to Jojoba Hills SKP RV Resort. This is another Escapees Co-op RV community. It is in the high desert southeast of LA. Very nice community with huge lots and nice amenities. We are staying here for a week to rest and relax.

Next Thursday, we will head East back to Arizonia. We are going back to Palm Creek for 17 days. Meeting up again with our Caravan friends – Terry and Kirk.

On November 5th, drop-off our Airstream to the dealer for warranty repairs in Chandler, AZ and head back to Wisconsin for Christmas and New Year’s. We will be there for a month before returning to Arizonia in early January.

Crescent City, California

On Monday, we drove 45 miles south to Ramblin Redwood RV Park in Crescent City, California. Here, we met up with Kirk and Terry from the Cascadia Caravan for a few days. A campground situated among the redwood trees. Large full hookup sites in a great location.

On Tuesday, we hiked the Stout Grove Memorial Trial, an ancient coast redwood forest (old Growth) with 300 foot trees; scenes from “Return of the Jedi” were filmed here. A short 1-mile hike but a must see.

Later we hiked Grove of Titans Trail. This trail has some of the worlds largest measured redwoods (by volume). It is a cool trail with metal walkways to protect the forest floor from compression to allow rainfall to reach the soil.

Trail of Titans

Tuesday night, we celebrated Pam’s birthday at Marlo’s Restaurant. A simple place in a strip mall, but the food was outstanding. We really enjoyed the evening.

Wednesday, we visited Tour Thru Tree, an 800 year old Redwood with a road passing through it. Unfortunately, our beast of a truck would not fit through all the way – the mirrors were just too wide! Good fun for $5.

Gold Cost, Oregon

On Saturday, Pam and I drove 195 miles to Ireland’s Ocean View RV Park in Gold Coast, Oregon. Right off of US-101 on the Oregon Coast. This small RV park is right on the ocean – 500 feet from our trailer. We stayed 2 nights and had full hookups.

Gold Coast is definetly a tourest town that can handle a lot of people in the summer. For us, it was quite and relaxing. We had dinner at Sunsets Family Pizza; huge place and the pizza was good.

We mainly just relaxed and waited for it to stop raining.

1 Year Anniversary of Being Homeless

Today, Friday, October 28th, 2022, marks 1 year since selling our home in New Richmond and hitting the road full time in our Airstream Trailer. Wow. It has been a great experience. Sometimes, we miss not having a bricks and mortar home somewhere, but there is time for that later.

We stayed at the Freed Estate Vinyards in Winston, Oregon. A nice Harvest Host with lots of room and nice wine tasting. We tasted 13 wines for $15. Pam bought a bottle of Rose which we enjoyed that evening sitting outside. They are done harvesting grapes for the season, so we were able to pick a few bunches of grapes to eat. Delicious!

On Saturday, we head back to the west coast of Oregon.
