Day 1, Saturday, March 3, 2018, Home to Gridley, CA via CA99, I-5
I told my son, Dean, on my last trip to his place in Oceanside back in August, that I was too old to deal with the hellacious traffic of LALA Land to continue my visits with them in Oceanside. I’d been doing so for 15 years or so, and now it was up to him to visit me. And this was his first visit to see his Old Man. I was pleased that he made the effort.It was only a one night trip, but I still had to load the groceries and clothing onto the coach. No, it’s not work; it’s considered playing with my favorite toy!
Dean flew to Sacramento from San Diego and rented a car to drive to Craig’s place in Stockton. He spent that night with Brett, Craig’s son. I drove the coach up to Stockton the following morning and parked at Craig’s while he and I went to Dave Wong’s Chinese Restaurant for a much anticipated lunch together. In the meantime, Lavonne had lunch with an old friend in Stockton, and would meet us at Craig’s after we all had our lunches. The logistics were pretty complicated, but it all worked out as planned. Then the three of us climbed aboard Big Blue II and headed to Gridley where we visited my twin sister, Gale, and her husband, John.
