We’ve been in Cali for a few days and action packed they have been. We took a wrong turn outside Barstow and ended up going to LA … outskirts but close enough for traffic. I would rather ride around DC on a moped then go through that shit again. INSANE.

On our way to dinner with Evil Genius Petey and his gal Tricia some asstard chucked a rock off an overpass. As luck would have it – it destroyed our sun roof. Our shade was closed so no glass or injuries to our persons but it could have been worse.

Also the gas hot water heater thingamajig died so when we are boondocking we are taking cold showers.

Both repairs are on the books for next week. So we are hanging out until then. Right now we are in Petaluma, CA … it is a nice small town with lots to see and do and still a reasonable drive to San Fran should we want to go down there but I am telling you now I am so over California traffic it isn’t even funny.

A couple of bonuses … the landscape here is amazing. Just north of LA there are these huge rolling green mountains like something straight out of Middle Earth. The sun glistens on the wild patches of mustard that seem to be painted on the sides. Amazing.

Fresh fruit and veggies is the other plus – and there are stands like every other block. Great prices.

That is about it for now … thanks for keeping up.

Happy Trails,
