cTv RV Life – Drone hunting Wildflowers at Arvin and Lebec, California

Michael – What – travel 400+ miles to hunt flowers growing in the wild at Arvin and Lebec? Yeah, sometimes it’s wise for a husband to pick up a few “atta boys” and get a chance to fly his drone! Turned out to be an awesome 3 day RV Life trip with spectacular wildflowers so we extended an extra day, going South ANOTHER 100+ miles! Stay tuned – we have two more stops in future shows…

Grace – When we were coming home from San Diego early in February I had told Michael Continue reading

cTv RV Life – Playing in Old Town Sacramento, California

In downtown Sacramento after seeing the Capitol and Crocker Art Museum, we topped off the day enjoying the good life in Old Sacramento – This town came to life during the “Gold Rush” days and after a major face lift in the 1960′s it was listed as a National Historic Landmark District.  Find out about the Pony Expresses and much more in our latest video. A great place to divert from traditional RV Life and shop, play, eat and dine with fellow tourists.

cTv RV Life – Enjoy secrets of California State Capitol in Sacramento

On our return trips from the Sierras, we dropped by our California State Capitol located at Sacramento (last of 6 locations over 150 years). Outside, the memorial ground dedications and Vietnam statuary are beyond description and inside, be sure to check out the library. We also enjoyed the memorial commemorating Father Junipero Serra who led the quest to support native indigenous Americans with California Missions. In a future video we will highlight the 58 marquee displays featuring interesting tidbids for each of our California Counties.

Grace Bites the Dust in the Sierra Forest and Drone Time

At long last, we head for snow country in the Sierras. Wanting to avoid frozen pipes or tanks, we spent the first night at Colfax, Long Ravine Campground. We enjoyed the beautiful lake view, drone video footage and…Grace demonstrated The fine art of face plants (fortunate it was in sawdust). And of course life happens when we’re making plans – dealing with a new rattle to repair in our Class C motor home.

ctv RV Life, See Hi Jolly monument at Quartzsite, Then off to Indio California

cTv RV Life, before leaving Quartzsite we stop to appreciate founder “Hi Jolly” then it’s off to Indio California for the evening (after missing the turnoff to Joshua Tree National Park).  Actually, Indio has an interesting history, too – Indians discovered natural wells (originally named Indian Wells), that were vital to the Southern Pacific railroad obtaining water in the middle of the desert… as always, much to the chagrin of the American Indians.
