Golfing In Beautiful Rancho Cordova!

Today Jim and I spent a few hours leisurely making our way around Bradshaw Ranch golf course. It was about 80 degrees and slightly breezy. We had a wonderful day! When I resist the urge to keep track of my strokes, I just LOVE the game of golf!!!

Jim and Kathie

While we were at Puck's we also hung out with her people, Jim and Kathie. Jim and Jim went golfing twice and Kathie and I worked on computer as well as art stuff! Pretty fun weekend!

Our trip to Reno this weekend :)

Jim and I went to Reno this last weekend to hang out at Puck's house. Here she is relaxing in one of her favorite spots.

A wonderful trip among the lakes of the Sierras

We started our trip today at South Lake Tahoe. The cool thing is we were together, which is always fun. And... I spotted a bald eagle above the lake and that was awsome. We also checked out a nice place to camp and had a great lunch. Here's a pic taken from an overlook by Emerald Bay.

The down side was the awful traffic! Ugh! We just sat for long periods of time in line with other cars just to get around the lake.

Then we went to down 89 toward 88 and stopped at Silver Lake! That was just a beautiful, much cooler, and fewer people. Here's a pic of Jim by Silver Lake. Check it out if you haven't. It's just very nice and so are the people at the little resort at the south end of the lake.

Planning our first adventure!

Well the cleaning went pretty well. For having been left on a vacant piece of land for about 3 years, its really not that bad. It may not be the trailer we're dreaming of, but it'll get us out there on our first adventure!

As a matter of fact, I can really see me in this camper! So, the question is... do we go up the mountain to South Lake Tahoe, or across the valley to the ocean? I'm up for either! this is gonna be fun! Pictures to come. :)

Cleaning Day

Our little camper has been sitting on a vacant peice of property Jim owns in Georgetown, California for a few years! So, clean up will be an adventure in itself! First, we set off a bug bomb to evict the current residents, now it's time to remove their tiny bodies. I'll post before and after pics when I'm finished. Hopefully, you'll be able to tell a big differnce.

scaled down adventure

We've decided to start small and take our tiny "pop-up" camper on a trip for our first outing. Should be fun. :) Good thing my sweetie and I enjoy being cozy! First, it's clean-up, gathering supplies, and planning. Then we'll hit the Crystal Basin Recreation Area in the Northern Sierras. Photos to come. :)

still dreaming...

We're still dreaming about our trailer. Jim ordered the breaks today and I did research about housewares, but so far there is nothing wonderful on Craigslist. :(

Searching for the Perfect Travel Trailer for us

Jim and I are so excited about our new adventure! So far, we're still looking for the perfect trailer. Jim is gonna put the special brakes on the truck so that when we find out trailer, we can take it home. We both like cozy spaces so our trailer will be between 13 and 19 feet long. Searching the market (mostly Craigslist) has proven very frustrating. People lie like rugs to those that inqure. It's sad. They'll lie right to your face, arghhhh.

Anyway, we press on, checking the listings and still hopefully excited about the process. Open road, here we come! I can't wait to be snuggling in our cozy trailer or sitting out under a tree enjoying the quiet.

We're looking for a trailer big enough for the kids to come along, so that'll be fun, also. Hiking, smores, bbqs. Woo hoo!
