Apr 7, 2010 - We have a convoy!

Five rigs pulled out of Bakersfield this morning headed for the 37th Annual Jazzaffair in Three Rivers. The McDoles were leading the pack and we were way in the back as tail gunners. Three of these couples (McDoles, Collingwoods and Therouxs) have planned a summer long trip to Alaska and this was dress rehearsal for them and it went pretty good. The route chosen was the less traveled CA-65 where we saw lots of olive tree groves and other fruits and nuts – well, after all, it is California. We didn’t experience any problems – except for a...

May 3, 2008 - Templeton farmers' market then to Three Rivers

We had a “light” breakfast at a French restaurant in Palo Robles, bought some of their beautiful pastries, then headed to Templeton to the farmers’ market. What a delight to all the senses! Beautiful tomatoes, cherries, mushrooms, olives, flowers, Alaskan crab, pastries, herbs, and I could go on and on. We carried all our purchased goodies back to the bus and headed three hours northeast our campground in Three Rivers, CA, just ten miles from the Sequoia National Park entrance. We're assigned to Sweetheart Circle, so named because of the...

Apr 16, 2008 - Jazz Festival at Three Rivers, CA

We left home and headed to Bakersfield, CA. After driving 200 miles we stopped at a rest stop for the toilets. It was then that I discovered I had no wallet. We searched the truck, no wallet. Assuming I left it at home, I dropped the trailer with Susan and the dogs at the rest stop and drove home. I got home around 4 pm. I found the wallet in my pants in the hamper. I drove back and picked up Susan around 7 pm and headed for the Orange Grove RV Park in Bakersfield. We pulling in around 8 PM and were greeted by friends we knew from the...

Apr 9, 2008 - Three Rivers, CA

Going North out of Bakersfield we stayed in a valley that had fields of orange trees, vineyards, almond, pistachio & olive groves and other agriculture. Our destination today was to get to the foothills of Sequoia National Park. Oh my goodness – the park we chose is so beautiful. It’s near the little village of Three Rivers and those 3 rivers come together just outside our RV. Lots of large trees and green grassy spots and so many birds chirping. Too bad we can’t stay here longer, but our spot is spoken for. The weather is 60 degrees and...

Feb 8, 2008 - Three Rivers (Sequoia National Park)

Well, we had a lovely time in Santa Barbara and Solvang yesterday. We found somewhere to park easily in Santa Barbara and had a walk through the town and the parks. There was a beautiful park, created for visually impaired people. There were audio commentary areas within the park so that blind people can have the surrounding described to em with explanations and information about the plants. There was also a lake with Terrapins which was lovely. The weather was fantastic and we had a relax in the park before buying some dds and videos from...

Sep 14, 2007 - The Biggest Tree in the World

Today is my last day here so I spent the day hiking, over 8 hours up and down forested mountains at about 7-8,000 feet. Great views, but best of all the Sequoias. These are yet another step increase in size and general awesomness, indeed I saw four of the world's biggest five trees today. Interestingly, the size of the monster big 250 foot high, 1,500 ton one was slightly diminished by the big crowds around it, and I was much more impressed with fractionally smaller enormous Sequoias in the more remote parts of the forest I found myself in...

Jun 5, 2007 - Three Rivers, California

Kaweah Park Resort On the banks of the Kaweah River Three Rivers, California We got here and never wanted to leave. David had previously decided he wanted to move to Silver City, New Mexico; however, he said Three Rivers, California was now the front leader. It really is a beautiful park! Large trees, birds singing, and in the background was river noise from the Keweah River falling over large rocks. Again, there was grass - again, happy dogs. Once we set up both RVs and put the tablecloth on the picnic table, and the camping chairs out...
