And It Starts With a Bang

Can't get to our 1st destination without something happening!

sunny 75 °F

And so we are off once again. And before we even get to our 1st destination we get a call from our granddaughter, from our house. She has found Dale’s wallet, complete with cash and his driver’s license, on the kitchen counter. Dale is driving, it’s his turn, so he tries to find his wallet and sure enough, it isn’t in his pocket or the door.

Fortunately, we came up with a plan so that she will overnight the wallet to our youngest son, where we will be on Monday. Crisis averted. Although, like Jen said, hopefully, Dale can pass for over 21 at the wine tasting pickup parties!

I also forgot both of the Canadian phones so, since we have the wallet being mailed to Oregon, the phones can be mailed as well. Now I don’t need to buy yet another phone in Canada.

So the plan, as we know it to be, is to reach San Francisco soon. We will stay at a parking lot RV park in Candlestick Park. This is not a great RV park, but we’ve stayed there before and it serves the purpose. We will move to the KOA on Saturday when a site opens up.
Tomorrow I have some claim work to attend to then we will play in the city.

Saturday and Sunday are wine tasting and pickup parties, then we will work our way to Canada. This time to ask questions about immigration and start looking for property. This is just the 1st step. We will see where it leads, but yet another adventure and possible option.

Never know what we will be into tomorrow!

Starting our Grandkids Trip to San Francisco

Finally packed and headed to San Francisco with the gang.

overcast 55 °F

Finally, we are on the road! 3 little kids in car seats in the back seat of our truck, 2 adults and 2 big kids in the RV. We gave the 2 big kids Dale’s laptop and Justin brought his, so they will use the hotspot card we have and be online until we lose our signal, an hour or so up I-5. I have a hotspot in my phone so we have that here in the truck for my laptop.

Getting ready was such a chore, had a bunch of laundry to do and kids had made shambles out of the house. I did get bathrooms cleaned, sheets changes and with my grandkids help we cleaned the rest of the house plus washed the kitchen floor to avoid the ants.

As usual, the only way to do these trips within reason is to cook all of our meals, or as many as possible. Tonight, we will stop at In-N-Out as it is a 4-1/2 hour drive, putting us into San Francisco at about 10pm. We will just do instant oatmeal for breakfast then take snacky things with us tomorrow to the Aquarium/Natural History/Planetarium. Hopefully we can take food in but if not we will just get our hands stamped and eat in the park outside. We did bring 6 bottles of wine, wish I’d brought the hard stuff too as some may prefer rum instead.

Kids are asleep, Dale is driving and I’m having some quiet time with a cup of hot coffee!
