North To Visalia

We left about 8 AM with about 180 miles to go.  Along the way…

Locals call this all sorts things.  I call it smog!DSC_0001  DSC_0006 DSC_0010DSC_0014DSC_0008 

We prefer Tehachapi Pass route rather than the pass leaving LA north on Interstate 5.  All the yo yo’s are around LA and this is just a better route being not so crowded and fast.DSC_0011 

Those are grape vineyards around this oil rig that was running.  Do you like a little oil with your grapes or wine?DSC_0018

Cement barriers are fun.  I don’t mind them but I’m very aware they’re there.DSC_0019

We arrived around noon at the Visalia Elks.  They have 50 AMP, water on flat pavement backed against trees in the back of the lodge.  The cost is $20.  We will stay here until Saturday and move up to Fresno to my cousin’s driveway.  We will probably run the generator for 6-8 hours a day up there.  The temps are expected to be near 100 and we won’t have any hook ups.DSC_0029 

Here’s are 31 year old daughter.  I think she looks more like me than Carol. DSCN1132

She graduates this Friday evening.DSC_0032

To all our friends in Sedalia, have fun, make a toast for us and see ya in January.  That is unless someone has a Lear jet they can send out here to pick us up.

See ya…..
