Jan 27 Monday

Main, Mainten, Maintenance......

There is never enough time in ones day to be bored, i believe if your bored - that's YOUR choice.

There is always so much to learn, do, etc...

Today there is a smelly issue happening with our friends RV. The whole thing still has me perplexed, RV plumbing is weird?

I helped Brian flush the plumbing vents from the roof, and then back flush the grey water drain line. We are not convinced the stinky smell is solved.

Jan 28 Tuesday

Going to Idyllwild.

We are planning on driving up to Idyllwild - the most artsy town in California (not my words). Quite deserving of a photo tribute

This is a small town in the San Jacinto Mtns, but has tremendous history, it first gained notability as early as the 1930's for film crews and then the 'Ponderosa Ranch' from Bonanza was filmed here at the Garner's Cattle ranch. The whole town is PET Friendly - every business welcomes man's best friend.....

The small mountain community reminded Pat & I of driving to Greenpoint, Cultus Lake and some parts of Jasper & Lytton. The small buildings reminded me of Sunny-side Cottages at Cultus. It is truly a place where you could just say " I have found IT". Famous stars who have homes here are Doris Day(deceased), Sean Connery, Micheal J Fox to name a few. We walked all over town, and then we headed out to the Garner Cattle Ranch, stopped off at Hemet Lake campground and got temporarily detained

January 29, Wednesday

We went for a 4 mile hike around the lake. Well, that was only part way as it was a 22 mile trail. Had a picnic back at the service center. No rattlers this time of year, next month...
