I don't think I 5 qualifies for our name

A Road Less Traveled
But here I am, on I5 heading south as it is the most direct route. This is also a first. I'm towing a vehicle, alone and trying desperately not to get myself into any situation where I might have to back up. That would be a disaster. I would have to unhitch and then rehitch, both which might cause me pain.
My first day was fine, my stops were all in rest stops where I had no problems. I found a lovely campground south of Roseburg Or at the 7 Feathers RV Park and Casino and my last hurdle is getting gas.
Where to stay Day 2 is another question. I can go south to Corning, CA where there is an campground or two with pull throughs, but after that is little to pick from until after I get past Sacramento. Thats a long drive. I guess I'll just see how it goes. Past Sacramento is a long one day drive.
BTW, I dont think that I do badly towing, I followed on RV towing a car for about 30 miles and his/her foot was on the break every time we came to anything that might resemble a downhill grade, and this was farm country not the mountains. I wonder how long his/her breakshoes last. LOL

Great weekend

We did our annual trek to Teanaway Campground just north of Cle Elem Wa with our group of friends and had an absolutely wonderful time. The weather was near perfect, the food was delicious and of course the friendship was so great.
Since I didn't take the camera, have no picture to share but heading out day-after-tomorrow for 29 Palms and will take the camera and will blog along the way.
This will be a first.
I am going to be traveling alone and towing a car. I'm not worried about it, but I want to get to the desert by Saturday so I have at least one day to set up camp and visit with friends before starting work. The job may be just a little while, a month or so, but long enough to get down to Indio to my most favorite Mexican Restaurant in the World, El Rincon del Norte, and into Joshua Tree for some spiritual rejuvenation.
