We decided to leave Pismo and head East and up in the mountains again. We found Lake Nacimiento so we decided to stay there. The place was just about empty and they had showers. We got charged $22 a piece. What a rip for a state campground.
It was a very quite night. We had a visitor who we figured it was probably a raccoon. It finished off our beef jerky and two packages of crackers that we left out.
Day Four of our trip now. We decided to see some friends up in Colfax, Sharon & Frank Piccolo. We took routes 42 & 49 to get us in the general area. They live past the tattoo parlor and down the next to the tracks thru the railroad property. It was something else.
We watched the weather reports and realized that a big weather front was coming into central and Northern California the next day, Sunday. We decided not to ride in the rain. The next morning we headed East.
Day Five we left Sharon & Frank’s place and headed East on I-80 over Donner’s Pass which was over 7,000 feet. Here’s the rest area we stopped to warm up among other things.Yes, it got a little nippy but we survived. We had no place in mind to go and we were just headed East out of the projected rainy weather.
In Fernley, Nevada we took route 50 East towards Ely. Route 50 is dubbed the Loneliest Road in America. Nope it’s not. We hung a right onto route 376 which turned out to be very lonely. Along the way..
Well that finishes up thru Day Five. I will continue the rest another day.
Now back to today,Friday March 27, and us moving to another campground. We are at the Catalina Spa in Desert Hot Springs. It’s a Coast to Coast park which is only $10 a night. BUT, if you want 50 AMP and a site that you can park in it’s $7 more. In 90 plus degrees we had to take it and squealed all the way as we paid it. It got to 99 degrees so we had both AC’s running to keep the coach cool. Tomorrow is suppose to be even hotter.
