Sleeping with the band in San Antonio!

Our neighbours tonight at Casa Walmart are the Relampaguitos, a travelling band, from Mexico. From their site: With the aim of keeping northern music alive, Relampaguitos was born, a group from Monterrey, Nuevo León. Rescuing the original sound and style made famous by Los Relámpagos del Norte in the sixties and making it known to […]

Taos, NM – OMFG the bearings are gone again!!!

We’d just left Taos about 5 minutes before. We pulled over at the rest area to take a photo and as soon as Harold opened the door I smelled something burning. “That’s not us is it?” I yelled to be heard over the traffic roaring past us. “I hope not!” he responded, followed by “Yes, it’s us!” Surely […]

In trouble with the Susanville, CA cops

The last couple of times we came through Susanville, I had thought the town looked cute and wished we’d made time to stop and check things out. This time, the place looked seedier. I don’t know if it’s having my Reno friend’s opinion of the place in my head, or if the town has really […]

All the way South to Bakersfield

We left home on Friday night, drove to Chehalis in southern Washington, where we bought groceries and stayed overnight at Walmart. My parents had arrived there in the afternoon. They don’t like to drive at night. We often don’t have a choice. Wilson Mobile 4G Cell Booster We’re not exactly on the same trip as […]

“I wonder if the fridge is running? Maybe we need to go catch it too.” Had I seriously just uttered those exact words in jest? Famous last words that came back to bite us less than 24 hours later. Ask me again, that silly old kid’s joke: “Is your fridge running?” and I’ll answer you with […]

This is the end

Another day of riving took us up the Chehalis, Wa Walmart, where we encountered the cold again, then the next day we drove to Tulalip, Wa. At this point we could have just continued home, but we wanted to check out the casino and do some shopping before heading back across the border. The casino […]

Jefferson – the 51st state?

It was down in Paso Robles that we’d first heard of a secession plan to take the northern part of California and the southern part of Oregon and make it into a 51st state named Jefferson. Funny that we’d just now heard of it, since the idea had been hatched way back in 1941. It […]

Down and out in Susanville

This part of the trip is where things became more of a chore and less about fun. Harold had only been able to take two weeks of vacation and we’d wanted to be away a month. Add to that, my best client had a big emergency that couldn’t wait until I returned. So the plan […]
