Vintage Travel Trailer Rally - Corning CA

April 28, 2013 Sunday
I have been visiting with my friend Cheryll this last week. She lives in an RV park on the Sacramento river near the town of Corning CA. As luck would have it, this weekend there was a vintage trailer outing at the park. My friends Rachael and Joel (Joel is my RV mechanic and Rachael is a member of my RV club) were there with their vintage trailer. There were many beautiful restored travel trailers and cars and trucks. A local car club came to the park on Saturday and parked their cars. It was truly a feast for the eyes. My friend Cheryll and some people from the park participated in an art show and sale. All that talent in one park on one weekend, it was a great time for all.
At 3:00 on Saturday Rachael served root beer floats in honor of our dear FreeWheeler friend Beverly who recently passed away. Beverly would always serve root beer floats at 3:00 to anyone who wanted one. All you had to do was come to her rig. We will miss you Beverly.
Cheryll and I will be going out to a nice dinner and a little gambling at the local Indian casino for my birthday tomorrow. YIPEE!!!
My camera and I were busy all weekend. What a visual treat we had.

This guy was really into lady bugs even though the trailer was a cardinal. He even had lady bug draw knobs. Very cute.
I really liked the color combo on this old Shasta

Dear Mr Mike Kemp. I know you have had this truck for over 40 years, but I really really really covet it.
I'll bet this gets some looks going down the road
Good looking combo.

Doesn't get any better than this.

Lake Berryessa and Lake Hennessey CA

April 16, 2013 Tue
I have been staying at Canyon Creek Campground for nearly two weeks now. During that time I have visited Lake Berryessa
and Lake Hennessey
I have found a few birds at each place and even had a two second glimpse of a Bobcat. That is always a treat. Last week my RV group lost a member and dear friend to cancer. I also learned another close friend has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. Yesterday I watched, with the rest of the world, the horrific scenes from the Boston Marathon bombings. I am once again reminded of how blessed my life is even though this 18’ box I live in sometimes seems a bit snug.
Getting out in nature and enjoying the wildlife I encounter helps me stay grounded. Maybe these photos can bring a little joy into your lives.
