Back to Merced California
End of December 2016 thru Mid-January 2017
I got some great pictures on are ride from Texas to Merced. Great skylines and wind power going over the Tehachapi Pass. We stopped at one of largest Rest Stops in Texas – everything is bigger in Texas.
We checked into the Elks Campground in Merced and headed up to spend some time with Geoff who lives in Modesto. We got through all the doctors/dentist appointments – complete for another year.
Getting together with our friends is always special. Thank you Dawn/Kendall/Lisa/Elena for a great night at “Final Round” in Chowchilla. New Year’s Eve was a great get together with Harry’s Golf buddies and wifes.
New Year’s Day Harry made a great Lancaster PA tradition – Pork/Sauerkraut/Mashed Potatoes. Geoff and Ziggy joined us watching football. Great game Penn State even though the win didn’t come about!!
Harry turned 62 in November 2016 and hadn’t bought his lifetime National Park Pass. We heard that the price will increase to $80 from $10. That put Harry to work finding the closest park to buy a pass. We ended up at the San Luis Wildlife Refuge outside of Los Banos. We decided to hike a trail to get a closer look at the wildlife. There were also Tule Elks in a large area that we decided to take a ride to get a better look.
We left Merced January 14th heading for Quartzsite AZ.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and blind can see.
Pork and potatoes sounds good, sauerkraut…not so much!
