Three months off the grid is the longest I have gone without posting.
Hello again ~
On my road trip east across I-80, stopped for gasoline in Utah for my RV home, Charlotte. 90s in the valley with snow covered mountains in the distance.
Said adios to my coastal home on Monday, made a stop for oil change and tire rotation. Those men at North Coast Tire in Fort Bragg, California are the best. They made sure I got on the road safely.
My first overnight stop was at Gold Ranch RV Park in Verdi, Nevada, an all-in-one place with a great heated pool and hot tub. They also have a casino, restaurant, gas station. Sandy, at the front desk, was very welcoming.
Hot tub Doug was my buddy while I soaked away the stiffness of the long drive. In less than half an hour, he told me all about his life. Going on the road in a van when he was 17, being a driller for the company fixing a nearby dam, taking a trailer to his daughter up near the Canadian border in Washington, his love affair online with Mimi through a Christian service in the Phillipines who takes care of her 87 year old grandmother and her sister’s 2 year old son. How she travels to Hong Kong to work because the wages are double compared to the island.
At the end of our soak, we wished each other well and safe journey.
It’s a wonderful life ~
