July 28 – And We’re Off!

Day one was without incident. We got up at 4:30 a.m. to take Mr. B to work after dropping off his truck for service. It ensured an early start for us. We made Sacramento by noon after a couple of stops along the way for breakfast (great to be able to pull the bowls, spoons and food out of the trailer and relax outside with breakfast) and stretches.

The trailer towed incredibly well, and at 55 mph the van didn’t seem at all taxed. I noticed other travelers pointing at our trailer and talking as they passed, some with smiles. I don’t know if they thought it was cool or funky, curious or junky, and I really don’t care what they thought. I’m just pleased it provided THEM a distraction along their journey.

In Sacramento we ran through Fairytale Town, a play place from my parents’ youth, mine and now my own children. The girls really enjoyed this place with its Old Woman in the Shoe Slide, giant Mother Goose “slide” and various other climbing, sliding and exploring structures.

Our early start afforded us the long break, plus early arrival at Evie’s in Yuba City. We had a really nice visit, dinner at a nearby diner, evening visit with Charlene, Sharon and Rodney and a good night’s rest.
