Snowing in Yosemite
December 3, 2018

Snuck away for the weekend to Yosemite. We arrived late on Friday night and just before it started to snow. Our timing could not have been better. We awoke on Saturday to about 8 inches of snow. And as the campground was unusually quiet, we slept in. This trip would be a good test for […]

Well Baby Visit
October 28, 2018

Drove up to Bend Oregon and the birthplace of Molly for the 6 month well baby visit. There almost nothing wrong with our Molly, but there were a few upgrades that we sought. Like an extra freezer, an rear lamp, and rear bumper locker box mount, some aircraft tie-down track and some mast steps to […]

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018 The plan was for a weekend camping trip to Pinnacles National Park. First chore was to mount the new license plates. Unfortunately less than 2 miles down the road, Molly decided it was a good time to throw an engine code and enter limp home mode. Weekend cancelled. The dealer advised […]

New Floor and Record Temperatures
June 3, 2018

Weekend, June 1st to 3rd, 2018 Spent the weekend at Acorn Campground, which mainly involved walking in the heat of the day, laying a floor in Molly and fixing the front camera which I broke.

Molly
Bodega Bay
April 4, 2018

March 30 – April 1, 2018 For this weekend getaway I’d managed to find a last minute spot in the ‘Porto Bodega Marina and RV Park. Since we left on Friday after work we wanted to have a guaranteed spot to stay as opposed to having to drive around in the dark to find one. […]

The Wrap.
March 21, 2018

The EarthCruiser FX is a really good-rugged-looking vehicle with clean lines and a well thought-through design. In it’s new-born state it is gleaming white. As the date for picking up Molly drew closer, we started thinking of possibly putting something on the sides:  an outline, a picture, …. we weren’t too sure. Eventually we came […]

The Naming.

Taking Molly Home.
March 16, 2018

Thursday, March 15 & Friday March 16, 2018.   As we were a tad pressed for time to get back home (one of us had to be at work the next Monday) we didn’t do any sightseeing on the way south. The Thursday night we stayed in an all-year campground en route. It was freezing […]
