Ahhh, California...

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

George and I finally have made our return trip.
We are back in the central coast of California,
workamping at a great RV resort.

For now we're in a different site than when we left,
but all sites are great here!
We'll move back to where we were in B2
when the other workamper leaves in a few weeks.
We'll be working our normal schedule here,
getting our bank account stocked up.
It was an expensive trip!

Sunday after we got set up and reunited with everyone here,
we took a ride up to Salinas to visit Mom and have dinner.

Yesterday we took a ride up to our favorite winery.
Before we left 2 months ago, we became a club member.
There's no cost, but you must commit 
to 4 bottles of their wine every quarter at club member price.
Not a problem, as we buy that much usually anyway :-)
Hahn Estate wines are the best!

Of course we get free tastings now,
but we love to go up for the view.

The grapes were all harvested, and now the vines are
waiting to be pruned back.

Thanksgiving will find us going out to dinner
with Mom, Adam, and Jennifer.
It will be nice to get together again after being gone for 2 months.

It's going to be a busy year!
Adam is getting married in August,
and we have a pretty cool trip planned in August as well..
more about that later :-)

We're anxious to get together with friends Connie and Greg too!

The whales are pretty active here in Monterey bay,
so some trips over to the ocean are in our future.

If any of our RVing friends are traveling through California in the next year,
please come see us!

Next stop 'home'!

Bakersfield River Run RV Park
Bakersfield, CA

Well, after almost 2 weeks of one night stops,
and a brief stay in Amarillo,
we are finally almost 'home'.

A bit of an update since my last post..

Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers,
as my recheck mammogram and ultrasound showed nothing.
It felt good to leave Amarillo and not have to worry about that!

Before we got to our overnight in Kingman, AZ
I got an e-mail from a long-time blog follower.
They are in Bullhead City and asked to meet us
for a meal in Kingman.

Tebra and George are fellow Pennsylvanians
and are now fulltime since 2013.

It was great to finally meet them and hear
about all their travels.
I'm sure we'll keep in touch and see them again somewhere!

We had nice travel days this last week,
and I always love the desert scenery.

We are now in Bakersfield at our favorite RV park.
Our two night stay will able us to visit,
and rest up a bit!

We had dinner with my Aunt and Uncle last night.

Today we're getting the RV washed, it's got 2 months of
road dirt on it!

Tomorrow we will be back at our home base
at Yanks RV resort in Greenfield.
We've got plans for Thanksgiving with Mom,
Adam, and Jennifer.
We'll start back to work on Friday.

Can't wait to be back and stationary for awhile!

Halfway 'home'

Amarillo Ranch RV Park
Amarillo, TX

George and I have finally landed in Amarillo
after a week of traveling from PA to CA.

We stayed in a new park in Van Buren, Arkansas,

It is conveniently located right off I-40,
and we had a site long enough to stay hooked up.

The park is filled with pecan trees!
They sell them by the pound, but we
found a few right on the ground.

The leaves were falling, sounding like rain on the roof.
We had just enough clearance through the trees to 
get a satellite signal.

We're in Amarillo until Tuesday.
I was called back to do another mammogram screening
as they found a 'subtle difference' from last year's.
Appreciate thoughts and prayers for tomorrow at 1 pm.
There's no family history of anything, 
so I'm hopeful.

We will be in California by Sunday the 19th,
back at Yanks to work for the winter and summer 2018.
