Hey Jared, ya got'em on 'bout everthin I own!

We drove up #1 highway, Pismo to Carmel and in to Gilroy the garlic capitol.
The road was great, only a couple of work areas but very little wait.
The downer FOG, hardly seen the ocean, never even took any pics and was probably the last time by the ocean till next winter when we go south.
The next 3 days we will be sitting on the interstates to get home. We have decided on some more renos to our Boler so I guess it'll be back to
Theres a hole in my Boler my Boler my Boler as soon as we get back!!!
Fred

Donna! Pissed off and on all day and its POURING TONIGHT!!
Pacific Northwet or what!!

We took the 680 around San Fran, the "scenic" route.
Well the hillsides are beautiful I was kept busy dodging potholes!
From the 101 up to just past Pleasanton on the 680 the road surface
is terrible! Ive drivin on smoother logging roads up the side of a mountain!
What happened to the ROADS PAVED WITH GOLD?


Big day tomorrow, its over 400 miles to Portland,,,,,,
At least it wont all be at 55 (Ca.s towing speed limit!)

CA has the worse roads in the country. You can tell the difference when you cross any border into or out of CA. Its all about the budget issues that has faced the state for a number of years now. Budget seems to be back on track now, so hopefully they will use some of the states money for road repairs. Its killing my vehicles.

DONNA YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT THE RAIN!
And its still raining atthe house.
The last 2 days were a long haul Redding to Portland friday
and Portland home(11hrs) saturday.
Was a great holiday and we booked in for 3 months next year at
the same place.
I cleaned up the Boler and put it in the garage today and have started a list of the renos to be done before summer camping.
They will include but not limited to a rear overhead storage unit, exterior access tothe right rear underbed storage, another drawer for my clothes, shelves at the front above window, looking at undercarridge storage and spare tire mount.
First job is to wash almost 3 months of cooking and moisture off the walls and ceiling. I use bleach in water and a stiff brush followed by water and towel off. I would peronally promote NOT to paint the interior. It will clean up most times real nice with Elbow grease.
So look for more in the mod section Hole in my Boler thread.
Fred

Thanks for letting us know you're home safe and sound. This has been a fun thread to follow. Those of us in the still work-a-day world often live vicariously.

Drove up the 3a highway from wynndel to crawford bay bc. This 40or so mile strech is considered the best drive in bc by more than 1 publication! It is priceless on a motorcycle. Then took the longest free ferry ride in bc across the kootenay lake and spent our first nite at the kokanee spring provincial pk.
