Nov 22, 2018 - Happy Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving and the day we leave this nice Inn and head to Palm Springs to spend Thanksgiving with our friends and their daughter and family. Our breakfast at the Inn was again fabulous. It consisted of scrambled eggs with fresh parsley from the garden, mixed with shepherds farm cheese from Vermont, Chistorra sausage from Spain over Apple pulled pork and homemade chorizo stuffing. As a side we had homemade roasted cranberries along with a side of minted sweet peas and carrots with carmalized broccoli. Also a salad of home grown...

Nov 21, 2018 - Temecula - wine tasting

To continue our day in Temecula, the four of us headed out to do wine tastings in the area. Our first stop was at the Maurice Carrie Winery. We were taken care of by Krista, a sweet old German lady who could read us like a book as to what wines she thought we may like. We were each allowed 5 tastings and for each of those and each of us she hit it on the head. Bob also bought a loaf of sourdough bread filled with Brie cheese that was delicious. After we were finished we chatted with Krista about her life in Germany and just about life...

Nov 21, 2018 - Temecula

We met Lisa and Bob for breakfast which was most excellent. They started with a fluted glass with sliced bananas on the bottom, a scoop of Nutella topped with a roasted hazelnut, also a scoop of formaggio topped with a raspberry and a macaroon on the side. The top was a dried crystallized sugar coated grapefruit rind. This tasted more like a dessert than a starter. For the main coarse, we had a poached egg over a bed of succotash mixed with edamame. The top of the egg had a sauce of green deliciousness. (Not sure what this was,but it was...

Nov 20, 2018 - On toTemecula

After Lisa was home from work we packed up and headed out about 6:30pm. Traffic was a bit on the heavy side but I guess normal for the area. We arrived at The Inn At Europa just before 8:00pm and the Inn keepers had our information waiting for us. Very nice little B&B After a little Italian dinner it was off to bed. Plan is to meet for breakfast at 8:30am. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable day!

Jun 4, 2017 - San Diego and Rick's house

Sorry I have not been up dating, but we have been really busy and not had the best WiFi. We got to our campground in San Diego and it is a huge KOA located in Chula Vista. Our first stop was the San Diego Zoo. It has been on Susan's bucket list for years. Turned out we visited on a slow day, except for school kids! It is a huge zoo and we walked about 4 miles up and down hills-- did I mention hills? We don't have many of those in Florida and it was the hills more than the distance that got to us. But with the aid of a bus tour we got to see...

Apr 25, 2016 - Hello everyone, we are on the road ! Are you ready to go ?

Our travels began on Thursday the 21st, our first stop was Temecula, Ca. to visit our dear friends Bob & Dolly. We spent a few hours together, catching up our families & talking about the days that we would camp together. We have always enjoyed being with them & having lots of laughs. We stayed at the Pachanga Casino/RV Resort (just a two night stay). Of course we hit the casino & actually did pretty good.

Pete & Jan's Travels

Jul 30, 2015 - We just want to get on the road! @$&?!;

It seems if it could go wrong, it did. The temps were high in Palm Springs, making hard to get the refer cooled down. Not yet knowing we had a problem with the inverter allowing use of the 12 volt electric system, the message on the refer reported we were low on propane. So our first stop heading out of town was to get propane. Well, the task of getting the new tire rack for improved storage backfired when we discovered the installers blocked the LP fill valve. This meant a hurried return trip all the way back down to Santee to get the rack...

May 16, 2015 - Barstow, CA to Temecula, CA

Today's drive was not as picturesque as many in the past and took a lot longer than planned because of construction along I-15. We arrived at the Pechanga RV Resort at 3:30pm, got the RV hooked up, and then drove the car to visit our friends Brian & Gwen Eden at their gorgeous home in Bonsall, about a half hour away. Dan and I both worked with Brian at ITT Gilfillan many years ago. It was great reminiscing and catching up with good friends! Their dachshund, McDougal, satisfied our doggie fix for the day...what a cutie!

Jan 22, 2014 - Triple d's or "DDD"

Jan 20 - Monday - We doing pretty much as back home in the summer. Getting to know the lay of Hemet. Easy to get around. We have been shopping for a bike, cant seem to find a good one in stock, out of season. The Winter here is the DRIEST on record, ever.... The fruit and vegetable growers need water, not oil.. California provides about 75% of the USA with produce. With lack of water, you can only imagine the turmoil that could result with out some rain. As ususal we met some great people who are dirt-less (homeless)from Nevada, they just...

Aug 9, 2013 - Communal living in Southern California

Last year while we were away in Papua New Guinea, Rosemary and Jim from California stayed in our house in Eden Hills on the basis that sometime we would stay in Rosemary's house in Temecula in Southern California which is about half way between Los Angeles and San Diego. We organised to spend three nights at Rosemary's place giving us time to do our washing, update our journal and have a bit of a rest. That was the theory but the practice has not worked out so well. We thought that we would avoid the chaos of flying in to Los Angeles...

USA and Europe 2013

Jun 16, 2013 - Pechanga Casino

Well it's time to check out the casino next door. We took the free shuttle over for the buffet at lunch. I guess we hadn't really thought about how crowded it would be on Father's Day. We got there around 1 and the line was down the hall. Stan thought the line would go down if we waited so walked around exploring the games. At 2 we checked and the line was twice as long as it had been so we got in line. 35 minutes later we got a table. The food was very good and I don't remember seeing a buffet with that many choices. The casino is huge....
