West Coast Spring 2018 – Russian Gulch State Park

June 27 – 29 After a pretty good breakfast at the Best Western, we loaded up the car and headed out, for what we’d originally anticipated would be a short drive, but turned out to be longer as we opted to head to Highway 1 instead of Highway 101 for the journey to Russian Gulch […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Petaluma

June 26 As we were meeting Joanna’s Uncle Matt and Aunt Shana in Napa at 10am, we got a move on early Tuesday morning, saying goodbye to Jessica and Kris as they went off to work, retrieving the car from the same garage we used before for $18, loading up, and hitting the road. Usually […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Henderson, Part Two

June 3 -6 The plan for Monday was to hang out in the morning, then head into downtown Las Vegas to tour the Mob Museum, grab a bite to eat and make it to my doctor’s appointment at 4pm.  We’ve made a habit of visiting museums such as this one (Spy in Washington, East German […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Santa Fe, Part One

May 29 – June 1 With a seven-hour drive ahead of us we got on the road early, walking out the door with Bev as she left for work.  We’d be splitting the 11-hour drive to Santa Fe into two stages, doing the lion’s share today with an overnight in Dalhart, Texas giving us a […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Sikeston

May 18 – 19 Because we had to cancel our weeklong ride along the Katy Trail, we needed to fill up the days before arriving in Kansas at my sister Bev’s place.  We added a day to Nashville and one to our stay with her, which still left us with six nights to fill.  We […]
