Weekend, March 30 and 31, 2019 Caroline is still in Europe, so ready for some solo hiking in one of our favorite parks. And, I discovered a new trail that I did not even know that existed, and I like it. Saturday was spent doing a campsite to campsite loop via Bear Gulch, the reservoir, […]

Arroyo Seco Revisited
April 2, 2019

Weekend, March 24 and 25, 2019 Caroline had left earlier in the week and I had been in Los Angeles all week for work. My flight landed early into San Francisco airport, I wasted no time to pack a bag and head south for some hiking. Arroyo Seco was the obvious choice, as it is […]

Weekend, March 16 and 17, 2019 The winter rains have brought wildflowers to the Carrizo Plain National Monument, and we headed South to check them out. So glad we did. We left Friday night, got caught on terrible traffic and arrived late into Selby Campground. It was not long before we where sleeping. We woke […]

Santa Lucia Memorial Park
March 3, 2019

Friday, March 1, 2019 Got an early start away from San Francisco, and for once did not really get caught in traffic. We had high hopes of making the campground before the sun went down. And we were making excellent progress until presented with a very prominent “Road Closed” sign. We speculated the recent rains […]

Pinnacles – Monster Weekend
February 24, 2019

Long Weekend, February 15-18, 2019 We spent three days in Pinnacles National Park to enjoy the three day long weekend formed by President’s Day. And we did a lot of hiking, even as the weather so not really cooperating. We have never seen this park so green or the waters running so freely. We hiked […]

Arroyo Seco
February 10, 2019

Spent a lovely weekend away at Arroyo Seco. We left San Francisco early on Friday in an attempt to beat the rush hour traffic. We failed. The drive, which should normally take around 2,5 to 3 hours, ended up taking 5 hours. We still arrived early enough to cook dinner and watch a movie before […]

Wet and Wild
January 21, 2019

Spent the long weekend away enjoying the Northern California coastline at Gualala Regional Park. It rained pretty much all the time for the entire three days. The wet and wild weather didn’t slow us down too much, and we braved it to enjoy nice long walks along the beach and into town for coffee at […]

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 was almost nothing wrong with our Molly, but there were a few upgrades that we sought. Like an extra freezer, rear lamp, rear bumper locker box mount, some aircraft tie-down track and some mast steps to access […]

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 […]
