Crescent City, CA

One of my favorite places to park is the City-owned Shoreline RV in Crescent City. On the bay, next to a river, across a channel from the lighthouse, next to the marina, seals barking on the wharfs.

Nice day for travel through the redwoods, but the rain will return tonight for a few days.


California Cannabis

California’s legal marijuana regulations are a mess. That’s the opinion of everybody involved, not just my idea.

When the rules went into effect January 2018, temporary licenses were issued because the rules were still in work. This was risky for license-holders, but this type of thing has happened elsewhere and the impact was minimal. […]


I made it to Eureka, and will be here a week at least.

It took a long time from Fort Bragg on Highway 1. I cannot recommend anyone pulling a trailer take this road unless you need to check this route off your life list. There are a lot of 15 mph hairpins, I […]

Fort Bragg, CA

Fort Bragg is along CA-01, the Pacific Coast Highway, in Mendocino County. I’m glad I finally made it out here, but the challenge of the roads here hints that it might be a while before I return.

When I sat down to update my blog, it wouldn’t allow me to log in. I did […]


Every year I make this trip north on 101, and always stay at the fairgrounds rv lot. Ukiah is a must-stop so I can visit the Solar Living Center, which is now called Eco Terra something.

The other reason I stop here is to do a weather and conditions check. I expect, and have experienced, […]

Washington pot legislation

This is an update on the bills being considered for cannabis in Washington state.

Rumor has it that politics stopped the attempt to allow homegrown cannabis in the state, potentially leaving WA as the only state that doesn’t allow it. It’s hard to discern why the reluctance. There’s always the moral objections to cannabis, some […]

Santa Rosa

A break in the storm allowed me to comfortably reach Santa Rosa, and highway 101. I’ll be here a few days waiting out the rain.

I’m at the fairgrounds, which still has a lot of the trailers supplied by FEMA for the wildfire victims well over a year ago. I didn’t expect to find so […]


As planned, I made it through the central valleys and am now in a decent rv park waiting for the next storm to start. Flood warnings are posted, and I’ll be watching things in Sonoma county. Hopefully I can make it over there on Friday.

Meanwhile it’s books and video games here.

Hung up in Bakersfield

Bakersfield is not what you’d call a tourist city, but ahead of me is flooding and high winds so I’m sitting for a bit until the weather breaks. Maybe on Sunday or Monday I’ll make it to Lodi, then re-assess the situation.

I’m in a nice RV park, but there’s not a lot to do […]
