OUR TRAVEL ADVENTURE The
My memories of our days beginning in the Motor Home:
6/7/2007 9:00am drove to Porterville. Met Ray, the
owner/manager. He seems like a nice, fair gentleman.
Fixing our Bounder coach cost $935.00. I hope this is what
it needed. We stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast and
drove to Tulare. We loaded up the 1994 Bonder RV and
headed out – oops forgot the ice chest – oh well. Our
mileage is 115,220. This is our first camping trip. We are
headed to Sequall Campground. I have never been there
before but Danny has. We stopped in Selma and ate lunch
–pizza, went to bank the grocery store and rested a few
minutes. Up the hill to Oakhurst. WOW – I prayed and
prayed. The motor home got a little hot. Danny got real
quiet, I continued to pray. Nothing was said between the
two of us. Down the hill into Oakhurst – Whew – cooled
off. Great. The road to Sequall campground . Hmm looks
more like a place to take the jeep and a tent!! We
unhooked the jeep and drove into the camp sites. Oh my
gosh, I don’t think we can get in here with the big motor
home “Danny you need to remember that we are driving a
34 ft. Bonder 1994 motor home, it is not a jeep”. Into the
campsite- WOW big motor homes like ours. Danny knows
he can get it in here with no problem. I will watch! The
perfect place is taken but we find another great place. We
drive the jeep back to where we left the motor home.
Danny drives in and I drive in the jeep. MMM smell the
fresh air, the pine trees. Feels like we have so much to do,
set up the tent and blow up the air mattress! Nope, we just
have to put a tablecloth on the table , put up the
campstove, make coffee, set up the chairs and pull out the
awning then roll out the carpet - mmm we are ready to
camp! Danny has a new chainsaw. Whoops, it is
broken before we start and it won’t work at all. We have
great pieced of wood for the firepit and can’t cut them. It
will go back. Roast hot dogs, heat beans and coffee and
enjoy the evening. We did watch TV in the front. The
bedroom TV is not working. Whoa, are we glad we brought
the down comforter it is cold but it kept us nice and warm.
6/9/2007 – Had a hard time sleeping. Think the mattress is
too hard and my arms kept going to sleep. WOW it is cold
here!! I got up and made coffee. I was going to go outside
and cook on the campstove – silly me – we have a stove
that uses propane in the motor home. Just drinking coffee
and relaxing and watching the morning come to life. Baked
biscuits in the oven, oatmeal and bacon. Laid around,
had a hot dog for lunch and went to find fire wood and do a
little 4-wheeling. We kind of got turned around but ran into
a hiker and asked how to get back to Sequall. We found
our way back but had to cross the stream then up a hill.
Thank God the 4-wheel drive works! It is so much fun.
Back at camp, Danny started a fire using some of the wood
we gathered and a big log. Dinner – chicken, sweet
potatoes, onions. Didn’t taste very good. Watching the
fire with a fresh cup of coffee out among the trees. The
birds are singing and it is so peaceful. Today Danny and I
talked about where we wanted to go as “full-timers”. It is
such a great dream – wonder if it will happen? Owning the
motor home was a dream and it did come true! Going to
enjoy the evening with nature. Reality is tomorrow – go
home and get ready to go back to work. 6/27/2007 –
Someone read our questions and our desires about being
a camp host couple and Doug Magruder called at 9am. I
was at work and he offered Danny and I a job at East Fork
campground – Inyo National Forest. Danny called me at
work and sang “Take this job and shove it”. I didn’t
understand his humor so he said “Babe, we’ve been
offered a camp host job up by Bishop, CA. At a loss for
words, I said, “We’ll have to talk about this when I get
home”. That night we talked way into the night, what we
could do and how we could adjust the finances in order to
take this job. After being up most of the night we called
Doug at 8:15am on June 28, 2007 and told him we’d
accept the job if we could adjust the arrival date to July 11,
2007. No problem. I finished getting ready for work and
off I went. I walked into the office and straight into Christine’
s office and said, “I am giving my notice, my last day will be
July 5th”. My sister, Donna, came in and said “What did I
just hear?” I explained about the camp host offer and
said, “We accepted”. Hard to work, I called some of my
clients, emailed some and explained I would not be there
after July 5, 2007.
