Our Adventures

Welcome to the adventures of Larry and Connie Farquhar.

November 2011 Travel Log

November 24, 2011 - Seabreeze RV Park, Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, CA: Happy Thanksgiving! I had some free time, so thought I'd try to bring you up to date on what we've been doing all year. Yes - we're still living and traveling full time in our new motor home. With summer work and maintaing 8 web sites, I don't have much free time to write on this web site. I mainly keep this site operational for reference.

We had another great summer working in the Tahoe National Forest. The summer went pretty smooth without any serious camper problems. However, next year (2012), we're moving to work in the Inyo National Forest. We'll be withe same company, but just in a different location. Larry will still be an "Operations Manager", but Connie will become an "Administrative Assistant". She'll miss not having her own Camp Store to manage and operate. Instead, she'll be doing whatever is needed to help Larry run the place. We'll be staying in a campground in Mammoth Lakes, CA. But now we'll have full hook-ups! For the past three years, we haven't had much electric all summer. While we adjusted, it sure will be nice to always have electric to run everything!

The area we'll be working in encoompasses the Mammoth Lakes area, the Reds Meadow area, June Lake, and many campgrounds on Tioga Pass. This entire area is a popular tourist area. For the past three years, we've had a quite, hidden area to manage. Now, we'll be in a high traffic area. We'll have about 66 employees (hosts and maintenance) work with us, and about 3 times the revenue and expenses to manage. It'll be different, but we're looking forward to it.

After our recent work season concluded (end of October), we headed to the Seattle area for a couple weeks. We enjoyed visiting with Kenny and Wendy Ayers (Larry's sister). We also visited with our eldest daughter Leslie and her husband Andy, along woth our grand daughters Kaylee and Khloe. We stayed at the Burien Elks Lodge for most of the two weeks. While on a noisy highway, the price is good. Besides, there's not may places in the city for a large RV to stay. We had full hook-ups at this Elks lodge for $15 a night. As a special bonus, Andy gave Leslie a birthday present of paying for our youngest daughter, Cindy, to fly up from Arizona for a week. Cindy stayed with us for the week, so we had our entire immediate family together. It was great, impromptu family renuion.
