Good morning mutants near and far, old and new!

2 more days in Provo and it's off to see the rainbow, the wonderful rainbow of RVMdom!

Traveling with Jeff and Marcia is a kick and we're already planning our month long adventures in and around Montrose Colorado.

We have our tickets for the Joe Ely concert on 9/21 - and are looking forward to that and the Montrose Oktoberfest 10/3.

Our day trip plans include Black Canyon of Gunnison, Telluride, Crested Butte, the jeeping capitol of the world, Ouray Colorado, the million dollar highway, the spires of the San Juan Mountains, and Grand Mesa. It's rough duty, but someone has to do it...

Well, Ed, I did not expect 6 lanes of gridlock for 40 miles when 200 miles from the 5.

Ok, here's the proof that Bow is out of the shop (for now). She's going to have to go back in to get the generator oil leak fixed. But we didn't need the genny at the nice little city-owned RV park just outside of Levelland, TX on Hwy 385 South.

Wayne, y'all should have stayed there. It's free for 3 days, then only $25 a night after that. 50/30 amp plus water. Dump station in park. They only have 7 sites, but every time we've gone over, we've gotten a spot. You're by the little airport and will occasionally get to see small planes take off or land. It really is a great little park for travelers or just for a weekend get-away.

Couple of good Mexican restaurants in town. And Levelland is home to South Plains College, a 2 year community college. Sheryl Swoops is one of their most famous alumns. (If you don't follow women's college basketball, you may not know Sheryl.) They also have a world class Bluegrass music program and recording engineering program. Students come from all over the world (literally) to study bluegrass music. Levelland, TX. Who'd a-thunk it?

At Ft. Bragg turned south on CA 1

Stayed on it until State Road 116 and turned east

Sitting in Petaluma, CA for 4 nights (Napa and San Fran trips)

IF you have ridden this route in a car, imagine doing it in a 40' MH w/ tow. A road wide enough for 1 4/5 MHs, switchbacks 5 to the mile, cliffs 1/2 the time with no guard rails. Feared meeting some "middle-of-the-roader" coming around one of the blind curves. White knuckles galore.

I don't think we were supposed to be on that section of road in a MH.
Steve, you need to be careful traveling the West Coast. Some of those routes on Hwy 1 are white knuckle busters but some are beautiful. We use the 101 most of the time and it turns into a combination of Hwy 1 and 101. We did take Hwy-1. Hwy-1 just North of San Fran has some pretty tight turns. From Petaluma, run out the Bodega Bay hwy to Bodega Bay and then take a ride down the 1 in the TOAD. Nice day ride.

South of San Fran you can pick up the 1 and ride it to Monterey, CA. South of Monterey you get into Big Sur country and I personally would not take the MH towing down that highway. I sure do recommend a day drive in the TOAD down the Big Sur. Beautiful scenery. There are RV parks along the way and there are RV's there, like at Morro Bay. I'm not sure what route they use to get there. Probably from San Luis Osbipo where 101 and the 1 meet and use the 1 to get to Morro Bay. Beautiful area.

You can pick up the 1 again in Pismo Beach and it will eventually merge with the 101 in Las Cruces and follow the 101 and 1 South until it branches off again around Ventura. The 1 from there to LA very nice, busy on the weekends. Santa Monica can be a little stop and go with the traffic lights but not real bad. We got off in Santa Monica and took the 10E to the 405S. I did not want to do the 1 through LA and all the beach resorts and around the LA airport.

If you want to stay on the water you could get off the 405 at Seal Beach Blvd over to the 1 and follow it to just past Dana Hills Point and merges with the 5.

We will be in the area until the 18th (Del Mar Beach Resort, Camp Pendleton) if you make it this far before we leave. We may extend here - let you know.

Because we can! Besides most people are where they want to be on the holiday so traffic is not bad until late in the afternoon. We sailed down the 1, 405, 5 and 101 on Monday, Labor Day. Now you should understand Ed that being retired allows you to travel on any day you want. You should try that retired thing. It's great.
