Our long time friends, from Port Alberni, gave us the pleasure of their company this past weekend. They were starting their journey to Yuma with a Truck & Fifth Wheel Trailer and managed to stop for a nice visit.
They arrived at our house on Friday night and stayed until Sunday morning. They are taking, roughly, the same route we have planned, with a couple of exceptions.
First day for them was to travel to Chehalis, Washington, where they shared the Walmart Site there with a lot of big Semi Trucks. Not much sleep/rest that night.
Second day found them at Seven Feathers RV & Casino, near Canyonville Oregon at 3:00 p.m. They enjoyed a much better rest. Shared a cocktail with other travellers there, from Nanaimo BC & Gold River BC. 18 degrees and sunny.
Third day to Rolling HIlls Casino near Corning California. An email suggests that they had no wi-fi here, and maybe should have stayed 14 miles north at Durango RV Resort. 30 degree weather here and lots of sun. I’m told there is a great place just into California that have super prices on your favourite alcohol beverages. If you are inclined that way, this is a good place to stock up. Watch for the Big Sign, it will take you right there.
Fourth day took them to an Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park just south of Coalinga, California and north of Bakersfield Ca.
The Fifth day took them near Yucca Valley. I have to wait to get an email tomorrow to finish this post, but bottom line is they arrived, safe & sound on Day Six, after a 4 hr drive.
And here they are at Del Pueblo RV Park in Yuma, Arizona.
