October 2009 Travel Log

10/31/09 - Rachel, NV - Happy Halloween! >We've closed all the campgrounds and are now heading to Arizona. As a change of pace, we decided to go through Nevada instead of California. Since we've never been in this part of Nevada, we decided to go a little out of the way and drive the "Extraterrestrial Highway". This road borders the infamous Area 51. We stopped for the night at the "A'Le'Inn" i...

September 2009 Travel Log

Jackson Meadows Reservoir
9/15/09 - Jackson Meadow Recreation Area, CA - Things have finally slowed down around here. Not many campers coming in, although the weather is still nice. Since business is slowing down. I've had to lay-off some camp hosts and reduce the work hours of the others. We're now keeping our new store open only on the weekends. Even then, it doesn't make much money. I almost feel like we'd be better off...

August 2009 Travel Log

8/20/09 - Jackson Meadow Recreation Area, CA - We have bears! For the past month or so, a bear (or more) have been visiting the campgrounds almost nightly.

But there's always someone who leaves food out overnight. The bears are starting to get us...

March 2009 Travel Log

3/22/2009 - Indian Valley Campground, CA: We GREATLY enjoyed our stay at Beale AFB. The campground was in a quiet section of the base. We didn't do much during that week, except relax. Since we're anxious to get started on our summer jobs, we did make a couple day drives to the areas we'll be managing. After a week at Beale AFB, we moved a few days ago to Indian Valley Campground on the Yuba River...

February 2009 Travel Log

2/28/2009 - Seal Beach, CA: Having maintenance done on the Motorhome went pretty smooth. The cruise control repair only took 45 minutes, so we headed directly over to the tire shop. They were able to get us in immediately and took a couple of hours (and $1500). This put us a day ahead of plans. Instead of fighting city traffic, we decided to spend the night at the local Sam's Club parking lot. We ...
