The weather has been great. It is going to be beautiful.

Normally there is a little fog in the morning that burns off around 10 am. Not thick fog, just 1 mile visibility. It is staying light ’til about 8pm.

See y’all in 4 days.

We are feverishly working on the trailer and TV. They may not be too pretty but will be up and running by Thursday night.

Right now we are trying to fabricate a back window lock...might be a good idea for that window to stay closed on the road to keep our bed clean! One of the several things to check off the list before take off!

I'm getting excited!

This subject has sure gotten quiet. Has everyone left for Cambria already? How many trailers are going so far?

Well, MY trailer is in my work parking lot, right out front for all to see. It is taking up 3 spaces and is the subject of much snickering and curiousity.

"Can you change your mind without turning around in that little thing?" "I would like a dozen free range eggs, please" "Look! It's Fender colors!" (Well, it is, but I didn't plan it that way).

So, technically, I am already on the road!

I'm getting ready! This is our first trip in the Boler so I'm trying not to forget anything. We will be leaving in the morning, caravaning with Gina, and Fred and Co.

OK, all you Cambria-bound folks,
Ann and I are jealous! Since Ann doesn't retire until the end of the month and we are pinching gas money dollars, the best we can do is attend vicariously through your comments. We would like to put faces to the names we've encountered on the FGRV Forum. Maybe next year we'll get to join you.
This season, after Huck Finn, we'll be traveling to La Grange, possibly to Atascadero, then the Seattle area, Colfax/Spokane in South/ East Washington visit relatives, over to Idaho to see friends and then to my son's in Stevensville, Montana. From there we would like to see friend's new home in Tennessee, then Virginia and up the Eastern seaboard to Philadephia & points North to enjoy the fall colors. The cost of gasoline is going to be the limiting factor on the extent of the travels. Dreams are inexpensive until one actually attempts to bring them to fruition!

Is anyone planning on attending the Huck Finn Jubilee in Victorville at the Mojave Narrows Campground? It's over the Father's Day week-end in the middle of June. Don't come unless you enjoy an entire week-end of Bluegrass music. Square and Line dancing in the evenings have a devoted following. Lots of things for the kids to enjoy, but I'd suggest grubbies for the kids to wear while painting a fence, bulding bird houses, constructing a log cabin and other "crafty" activities. Many booths cater to those who need (or just desire) musical instruments, sheet music, CD's, a big selection of all styles of hats, western style "duds" for the gals and a myriad of other items too lengthy to list. A good selection of food types is also offered. And did I mention around-the-clock Bluegrass jam sessions? You just haven't heard anything 'til they get going on some of the old gospel songs. Y'all ain't heard nuthin' 'til they git goin' on "the Old Rugged Cross" or the Church-in-the Wildwood"! You can even exercise your vocal chords on Sunday morning during the outdoors church service. Mel and Pam Tillis will probably provide the closing festivities on Sunday. Laurie Lewis and her group and a whole bunch of others will perform on the main stage during the week-end. Check it out online, look up Huck Finn Jubilee. Boon-Dock camping and entertainment for all tastes as long as you enjoy Bluegrass and country western. There is usually even a car show during the week-end.
Enough (probably way too much) already!

Kurt & Ann K.

Kurt you'll be glad to know that when I talked to my mom in Missouri on Saturday she was horrified to have to pay $2.56/gal for gas.

Myself and three girlfriend are taking a 9 day roadtrip to Michigan and back the end of July to meet a friend we have known online for 7 years. We are not looking forward for paying for the gas....but what's the option?....staying home and not going. I'm going to go while my health still allows!

I wish you and Ann could join us in Cambria we will miss you!

It's 102 here in the Central Valley today so I'm ready to hitch up in the morning and head to the coast. I plan on getting to Cambria by lunch time and hope there's parking downtown for my trailer/truck. Forecast on national weather service for Cambria is calling for chance of showers 20-30% so bring a jacket. See you all there. Mike

I think of it this way: Living where gas is most expensive means that it is cheaper to go camping than to go to work!

The pre-load out process has begun! The Odyssey & The Eggstacy will be hitched and spend the night on the launch pad, all systems go for a morning count-down.

We are packed up and ready to pull out.

The weather report this morning says “Possible Rain”. WHAT, on my parade? It made the news because it is so unseasonal.

Yep, possible sprinkle tonight and 50% chance of rain (1/4 inch) on Sunday. Boy that would be a ‘frog strangler’ for us.

But guess what? Clouds mean GREAT Sunsets. Bring your cameras.

See y’all there,
Mike

WIFI works great in downtown Cambria. It's sunny today and everyone having a great time. 21 trailers in the camp. A nice camp fire at night with plenty of free wood to burn.

What a lovely little camp! It's late at nite, the fire has died down and folks are just now wandering back to thier rolling condos.

The weather has been quite pleasant, foggy in the am and day time just about perfect. We had a young couple drop by to see all the trailers to see if they could tow with thier Element, so we had "outsiders" venturing around being fascinated by all the glass.

No "Official" trailer tours, just folks wandering, yaking and being casual.

A group of us went and toured Heast Castle today. What a puney little house with a pathetic view (*smile*)

Dinner was a fine spread and you couldn't beat the view! We are sharing the camp with... get this.. a Christian Motorcycle Gang. (Yep, really!) All very polite guys with purdy motorcycles.

If the cell signal is stable enough, it is real touchy here, so I don't know if a pic upload will fly.. I am gonna try.. Here is a pic of the spread and location.
