We are settled into a small RV park in Rohnert Park in Sonoma County north of San Francisco. It rained hard on us all day until we got north of the bay. Since we arrived it sprinkled a little, but nothing serious. Today involved driving over some of the roughest highways we have experienced. The result was a mess inside the trailer. Some doors popped open and storage boxes spilled. Nothing broke and nothing was liquid or other mess, so we escaped with a little pick up.
We put up our side awning/canopy for the first time since our aborted efforts at Falocon State Park in Texas. It doesn’t appear as if there will be wind here to blow it away. Having the canopy over the front door gives us a “dry” room for our shoes, etc. It makes it seem more like home.
We intend to stay here for several days to see Vicki and family in Berkeley and Kevin and Barbara south of San Francisco as well as to visit some of our favorite places. This is our first visit here since Aunt Gen died. She introduced us to so many wonderful things in the area. We will be revisiting many of them and expect to evoke memories of our visits with her.
The other activity while we are here will be watching the road/weather forecasts for the Siskyou Mountains. When it looks like there will be a favorable 2-3 days we will make a run for Oregon and home. Right now the next warming is predicted for next weekend.
