(Santa Barbara). Hi. 75. Lo. 43
Headed to Live Oak on Wednesday morning. It's a Lazy Daze gathering.
I have been hanging in Santa Barbara for a couple months since my mom
had a bad fall. She is better but can't drive and everything that goes along with that.
I plan to be anchored here for a bit to help her. I do plan to do Quartzsite in Jan for
2 to 3 weeks.
I haven't been blogging cause there was nothing going on. I hope in the near future things
will get more exciting.

(Sacramento, CA) Hi 78 Lo 51
I spent 9 nights at the Convention. I had just a great time.
Upon arriving, everyone is met and checked in. Then the carts take you to your
spot. I believe there were over 300 attendees.
Here is Mom on the job
The Oregon Chapter was in charge of parking.
Below is a pic of a Myrtlewood bowl with lid that was in
a gift bag from the Oregon Chapter. The tree grows in
I spent a couple days driving the carts. Had a blast.
Gathering in main room
The gathering area between all the seminar rooms.
Here is Baby getting out a bit.
Here everyone is enjoying the root beer float social.
Solo traveler group area. They had potlucks and social times.
I became a member during the week.
During one of the seminars
Eating out at California Pizza Kitchen. We also had a movie outing.
Sweet little Katie
All of us first timers at Convention got a teddy bear.
Here is a sign that will be attached to my ladder.
I took other photos but could only put a few on here. Wish the week didn't
have to end.
After Convention, I needed to give the rv a good wash.
A new heater to keep warm.
A few days ago, a man who was looking right and rolling
through the stop sign( u can see where the white line is)
ran into my path. If I hadn't swerved left and dumped my
bike then I would have been hit. My derailleur was bent and I ended up
with a bunch of bruises.
Further on that ride I came across this little kitty
Stay tuned. I will write another post soon to explain why I have
been off the grid for a couple weeks.
I still plan to be at Live Oak for the Lazy Daze GTG in Dec and then in Quartzsite in Janurary.

(Jackson, CA) Hi 72 Lo 48
Here was a great rest area layover
Layover at Thunder Valley Casino resort in Lincoln
There were a couple other rv's overnight
Layover at Red Hawk Casino in Placerville
Taking a break
Here is some moss that was seen everywhere in Klamath area
on the trees. I had hoped to keep it going by keeping it moist
but it just didn't work.
I bought Baby a scrunchy sounding tunnel to play in
but he has no interest in it.
In Jackson CA I stayed a night at the Elks Lodge for only
$12 for full hook-ups.
Shortly after getting there the sky opened up and poured.
A nice lightning and thunder show.
Baby showed some interest in the noisy cows.
I had a great view.
Here is a great book with Elk campgrounds in 6
western states. Before I went to the campground I went to
the movies. As I was waiting in the parking lot I noticed a guy
drive up and walk into the bushes. As I watched, he came out
looking a a gadget in his hands. That's when I knew he was looking
for a Geocache. So I went over to help him find it and we had a
success. I took a pic of him but its on my iPhone.
Here is the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort in Jackson, CA
My view to the gathering area.
There were about 18 - 20 Lazy Daze rv's here.

(Fort Klamath, OR) Hi 75 Lo 43
The following are some views of Crater Lake.
We drove around the whole lake clockwise.
Thats the best way to go so you aren't so close the
Formed around 7700 yrs ago by the collapse of the volcano
The lake is the deepest in the U.S.
Here is a look at one of two islands and its
called Wizard Island.
Here's a little friend hoping for a snack.
Between the trees and out in the water you can see
an island. It's called the Phantom Ship. We thought
it looked more like a castle.
Tried to see Mt Shasta but the clouds weren't helping.
