Another Visit to My Sis in Gridley
Day 1, Tuesday, July 16, home to Gridley, CA via CA99, I-5
It was time to visit my dear twin sis in Gridley even though the summer temps in Gridley would be in the mid 90s. It had been well over a month since our last visit as we began our Arkansas adventure in early June.
We were able to time our visit to include Gale and John’s daughter, Jill, and her husband, Craig. They were down for a visit from the cold north of La Pine, Oregon, where it has been known to snow in July! We always have a grand time with them and it was good to time our visit to include them, too.
The day would be a warm one, and I pulled Big Blue up to the house about 0730 to get the loading underway during the cool of the morning. After loading on the stuff we need for our trip, we pulled out of our little gated community at 0945 and headed north.
The day made for a perfect drive as the usual northerly breeze was nearly non-existent. We ran the dash air conditioner from the moment I started the coach to begin our drive because it was already pretty warm at mid morning.

We endured the drive along CA99 and I-5, over the pot holes and otherwise lousy California roadways that took us toward Gridley. Once back on CA99 north of Sacramento when we turned off I-5, the road was much improved and the traffic was relatively light. By the time we got to Yuba City, it was lunch time and I was hankering for an In-‘n-Out Double-Double with fries and a vanilla shake. I indulge in such a lunch only every couple months or so, but when I do, it’s a real treat!
