Friday things…

We’re getting ready to leave tomorrow. The first stop will be in Salinas/Monterey KOA since that’s the halfway point. I think that site will have hookups so we will try and figure that out since we haven’t had that yet. Then the next day down to Refugio State Beach. Refugio does not have hookups as far as I can tell. We’re planning to go into Santa Barbara Tuesday as that’s the farmers market.

Today I packing up the dry food and tomorrow will do the refrigerator stuff. Barclay had the oil changed in Chevy and so we’re good to go there. He’s going to pull the RV out this afternoon and then just back slightly into the other driveway( our driveway splits) so we can pull straight out tomorrow. Part of the reason is our newish neighbor’s daughter’s boyfriend parks in the road( usually on Friday night) and that would block us from being able to do a wide turn so this way it’ll be done.

I had a good swim this week and will miss the pool while we’re gone. Hopefully, it won’t feel like I’m starting over after 10 days. Well, it is what it is.

I’ve finished up my house chores except for vacuuming and this morning PGE is coming out to check on the tree by the barn that is a leaner. It’s a huge Ponderosa so maybe they’ll take it. Then right after that, I’m going to the pet bookstore to load up on some books to bring with me.

I’ll post some pictures when we’re there if I can get some Wifi service.

Planning our RV trip to Refugio state beach

We are still planning to go on our trip to Refugio in 2 weeks. We have it planned where we will drive to Salinas/Monterey KOA the first night and that’s about 4 hours. I absolutely do not want to drive more than 4 hours while trailering the RV. I know it may happen once in a while but we are definitely trying to keep it within that time frame.

Refugio State Beach is just about the only campground near Santa Barbara. At least above SB. I’m not sure what I below it going south. It’s about 30 minutes from SB so not just a few minutes down the road. It’s a small campground that is as all the campgrounds are these days booked way in advance. I hope we like it.

Then from there we will leave and come back up to Paso Robles area and spend a night and then go over to New Brighton for 2 nights and then home. New Brighton is about 4 hours trailering.( going 55-60mph)… All this is contingent on the weather as California state beaches closed New Brighton when the big atmospheric storm came in. We still haven’t got our refund and I’m going to have to do the same thing that I did in September with Nevada Beach when that got cancelled and the refund was sent but not received by my bank. Pain in the Ass.

I’ve started to line up next year and hope we can get some reservations.

Here’s what I have so far listed not reservedyet:

Wright’s Beach

New Brighton

Nevada Beach

up the Oregon coast then over to Portland and then down I -5 to get home.

?? something new maybe down by San Diego ??
