As the New Year approaches it is time to get caught up, once again, on my entries. We have had a busy time traveling across northern & southern Califonia managing to visit some new areas while returning to some old favorties. 

California really is an amazing place with so much diversity available in just a short distance. You can go from the hustle and bustle of the State Captiol in Sacramento and within 20 minutes be out in the rice fields of Yuba County. Or better yet, the gold country with towns dating back to the gold rush of 1849.   Or you can take a short drive from the San Joaquin Valley and be in San Francisco, a city that people travel from around the world to visit!  How about driving through the central valley with a short trip west over the coastal range before settling in at a beach front RV park in Pismo Beach?  Not done with the coast yet?  Head south, being sure to stop in the "Danish" town of Solvang before hitting Santa Barbara, touted as the "American Riviera" .

Of course, no trip to the southern part of California would be complete without the frustration of trying to navigate the maze of freeways and gridlocked traffic.  Considering we traveled  8 different freeways in just under 200 miles to get to our final destination of the year - and we did so in the coach with the truck in tow ( 65 feet in total - the size of your average big rig! ) This trip went much more smoothly than the last time - when we were in our truck and 22 foot trailer.  During that trip I literally had to pry Ken's hands from the steering wheel and ply him with a very strong margarita to get him to calm down!

The next entry is Ken's annual wrap up of our year.  But before you get to that let me wish you a happy, healthy and love filled 2011.  Ken & I will continue in our travels in the upcoming year, including a months long trip North to Alaska with a group of traveling friends!!  We continue to be amazed and fascinated by all this nomadic lifestyle has to offer and are grateful for our health, love for each other and all the friends & family who make our world a much happier place!!
