Where I stayed
The Lakes RV and Golf Resort

After leaving Plymouth we ventured off on the scenic route once again. We had thought of going to Reno, Nevada and Lake Tahoe, but they had snow in the forecast and we're not up to challenging the white stuff. Yosemite National Park already had road closures because of snow so didn’t want to go there either. So many more windy, hilly roads later and sorta scenic, we decided to head for the freeway and make better time and head south.

OMG, the freeway was a shock to us northern folk. Cars, trucks, semis all in a major hurry to get wherever!!! And rough road, worse than some of our Yukon roads. A real eye-opener and we are not done with the freeways yet.

But after a harried couple of hours, we found this amazing RV resort in Chowchilla about 30 minutes north of Fresno. I like the word RESORT now, kinda like a fancy hotel. It’s gated, pool, hot tub, a fishing pond, paved wide sites, palm trees and warm weather. Almost like an oasis from the freeway.

We are staying here for 3 days and will head down the highway on Friday. Thursday was our first real day of doing nothing. We sat in the sun most of the day and enjoyed the moments.

Took Koal to the vet on Wednesday on the advice of our vet at home. Down here heart worm is an issue as are fleas and ticks. No issues in the Yukon. So a few $$$ later, we have some preventative medicines for her and hopefully all will be well.

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in this part of the world. We spoke with my Dad today who is a World War II vet and it was a pretty somber day for him. A day to say thanks to all vets and current folks in the forces.

Yahoo, more freeway Friday!!
