A summary of our Adventure.

(For a detailed description of our travels follow the left.)

On Monday, January 17th, we said good-by to family and friends in Yuba City and headed south for warmer weather in Quartzsite, AZ.

We arrived at La Posa South LTVA on Friday January 21st. On the 22nd we met with some RVclub.com members. There was another RVClub.com get together on the 29th. It was fun to meet up with folks we've exchanged e-mails with for so long. We also renewed acquaintances with members we first met at the Lodi get together last year.

We had planned to hang out in Quartzsite for a month or two but our e-mail setup wasn't working too well. Also, just before we left Yuba City, we made arrangements to do a web site so we decided we needed hookups and a phone.

Our home during February and March was Castle Rock Shores RV Resort in Parker Dam Arizona. We had a nice stay and while we were there we met with friends Betty & Everett Emmons, Buddy & Gayle Lee and Bill Hanley. We also met Tom & Kay Seliskar.

On April 1st we headed to California. First stop was Twentynine Palms where we visited Joshua Tree Monument and Giant Rock in Landers. Next stop was Jojoba Hills Escapees park near Hemit. Staying two nights allowed us a day to explore a little bit of the area. From Jojoba Hills we traveled north to Lancaster.

While in Lancaster we attended the spring Escapees' Escapade but instead of parking at the fairgrounds we stayed with Fran's #1 son and his family and drove to the fairgrounds each day.

On Saturday the 29th we returned to Ft. Mohave Arizona to participate in the Escapees' Woodcarvers workshop for a week. We had a great time and we each managed to carve a gnome figure.

After the workshop we returned to California and stayed a week at our home park Royal Oak Resort at Kingsburg. While in Kingburg we took a couple of day trips to explore the area. The longest trip took us to Pinnacles Monument and Hollister via route 25. We returned to Royal Oak on back roads driving through several small valley towns.

On the way to Yuba City we stayed three nights in the California Delta at Lighthouse Resort. We took one day and toured the delta looking for an RV park that can accommodate next year's woodcarver workshop. No luck though, the two parks we had in mind were already booked and one was taking reservation for 2002!

Now we're in Yuba City, California for the summer. But just because we've parked the house for a few months doesn't mean we've stop taking day trips and exploring.

On Saturday, June, 4th we took a ride down to Alameda Ca. and toured the WWII Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet. We spent several hours there and explored most of the ship that was open to the public.
