Several different weather reports are saying 20-40 MPH winds with gusts to 60 MPH for part of our route. Folks, wind is not good, not even in a big heavy RV like the Beast. We are headed for Tehachapi Pass. It’s normally windy there that’s why they have a lot of wind mills there…duh. I think once we get over it we will be alright. We don’t HAVE TO BE ANYWHERE so we will see what we see.
We stooped at a Chevron auto gas station in Weed patch that was kinda big and filled up. $3.82 for diesel cash. Yes…in California!!!! I lifted the front end up with the jacks so I could get a few more gallons in. I do that once in a blue moon. The Beast got 7.1 MPG and with me jamming the fuel in. I’m happy to get into the seven’s ever once in awhile. I got over 600 miles on a half of tank (85 gallons). That means I could have gone about 900 miles on 140 gallons with 10 gallons left over. I’ve gone 800 a few times and 600-700 is about normal unless few is less expensive in an area.
This is called Palm Tree Heart (boiled). This is the heart of a fallen palm tree. There’s only one in each tree. He found the tree next to a trash pick up. Brought it home and cut it out of the large tree piece. I said sure I will try it. It tastes like artichoke. If you like artichoke heart you will like this Palm Tree Heart.
We fixed the world economic problems and went to bed about midnight….whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
