Hi Lex
I have stayed at a few KOAs. Never again. I find them to be a poor place to deal with. I hope others have had better experiance.

We did suggest that you go to Yosemite, but we really didn't want you to climb El Capitan.

I'll bet Rita was shaking when she took those pictures of you on the mountain, huh? ;-)

Lex & Rita,

Your photos and log are a delight.

Excepting the U.S. "south", Joyce and I, long ago, visited almost every place that you have photographed. It's great to be able to "re-visit" them through your pictures and story, knowing that we'll never have the opportunity to return to most.

Nice capsule tours of L.A. and "The City", as many San Franciscans refer to it! You certainly saw the high points of each within such a tight time frame.

Thank you, thank you!

B.t.w., your web site downloads in a flash. Faster than most anything else that I go to. Is it based in Europe? And one day, when and if you ever get a leisure day, tell us about your camera(s).

Hi George,
My hoster is http://www.lonex.com . It is cheap and their service is very good.
The website is without any extras, it is just plain html. Except for a javascript to pop and slide the photos.
The thumbnails take most of the load time. That is why I put normal about 120 thumbnails per page.

The main camera I use is a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ20, already an oldie now ;-)
I like the zoom. It takes films of 320x240 pixels.
My "pocket camera" is a Canon Powershot A570. I like its extended capabilities for such a cheap and handy camera. It takes films 640x480 pixels.
To make a panorama I use the Stitch-function of an old program called PhotoStudio, which I got with my first digital camera in 1997.

Sounds like you did well with your visit to San Francisco, Lex. Hope you enjoy the Mendocino area and the Oregon Coast.

[b]Man, that's one sweet Boler!




Be careful with your fireworks tonight, L&R. I envy you traveling up the northern California coast. The "marine layer" is normal, but the scenery is going to be fantastic now. Wait'll you get the Redwoods---can't wait for your reactions----and photos. Thanks!

Yes: Fun. To Willits & back.
But I am worrying (from your log) about too many cholesterol-laden meals from McD's.

We're re-living the Mendocino-coast experience from your great photos. Once stayed at a nice B&B right in Mendocino (B.C.--Before Casita).

As you head north, check out the RV accommodations at Benbow Resort on Hwy. 101 at the Eel River---recall it as a beautiful spot. I can only imagine that it might be pricey, however, simply because of where it is.

We are very impressed by the Redwoods :-)
Our actual site is on campground http://www.redwoodsrv.com/ between the Redwood Trees :-)

What do you folks think of Crater Lake NP?
Is it a 'must do'?

Hi again, Lex & Rita - we continue to enjoy your posts and photos. Thanx so much! Ohhhh yes, aren't the redwoods wonderful?

Don't know how much time you have left for your tour schedule, but we think Crater Lake is a gorgeous 'must see'. There is a lovely US Forest Service campground at the base of the mountain at Diamond Lake. Hope you can fit it in. Safe journeys - L 'n D

I would go up by car too. It is 7,000 foot elevation. While you are at Crater Lake, do not miss the lodge. It is very vice. Also, if you have time and energy, take to boat tour. It is a mile or so hike with a 750' drop down to the lake but worth the effort. (I am assuming that they still do it. It has been a while since we were down there.)

There is a drive that circumnents the lake. It is about 35 miles. We have biked it twice (different years).

Enjoy

Dave
