Recent travels in California

well, Cici and I are traveling at the moment. And it has been difficult, folks due to numerous circumstances which I guess is best explained below in the link.

As we drove from Carson City, Nevada, (where I very much enjoyed going to the Hot Springs and Cici enjoyed being part of a pack of Jack Russells (three) and conquered using a doggie door), we made the “mistake” of going via Highway 299, which I thought was not too twisty and windy but WAS not only that but also HOT HOT HOT (weather), SMOKY from all of the fires, and lots of road work going on. Then when I decided to not go back that way to make our way south, the 101 was not at all as twisty and windy as I recalled. So either I have faulty memory or what?

We stopped in Williams, CA and stayed at a very nice not pet friendly Ramada Inn. Since Cici is my service dog, we were able to stay there anyhow.

We also stopped in Santa Rosa, and at the Solar Institute in Hopland. It was good to see improvements there and we got to see a tiny home (89 square feet) up close and personal. They rent it out for $79-89 a night and it is TINIER than TINY !!!!

We did manage to meet some really kind folks in Arcata, CA (Welcoming Center), treats galore and this photo of Cici…  thanks Leah !

we wanted to see the trees (and did but for much too short a time)…

in our nifty new used Jeep and popup camper (don’t even get me started about how challenging it is to drive and park one of these)… suffice it to say that I have massacred a few bushes and thought that I was blocked and unable to get going on quite a few occasions but thanks to kind strangers and prayers been able to get out of REALLY tight spots !!!!
