Home Sweet Home...Central CA We Have Survived and Arrived!!


So we spent last Friday morning finishing packing up and headed out the door.  I was pretty confident that "I Got This" when we pulled away with our 26 foot long U haul...but after we added an additional trailer I started to wonder...
I was OK with this (drove a truck before)

Drove with a trailer before (OK)

<><>
But never drove both together before.....Yikes!!!  7 parking spaces long and have to go down a mountain
So Thank the Lord my husband, Terry, decided to take on the challenge.  And for any of his family and friends that would never believe he would drive a 26' Uhaul and trailer down a mountain...He did and did it well (Since I'm typing you know I made it alive)

So Goodbye Mountain...
Going....

Going....

Going....

1 Gone .... A few more mountains to go...

Goodbye
Terry also drove through Sacramento like a pro.  I am so proud:)
We had to stop in Ripon Cal and took a short pit stop; it was wonderful to see the palms again and feel the warm air.

Very nice place, great staff and reasonable rates:)


We hit the road again early Saturday morning, my turn to drive but we made it to Fresno in one piece.

We have landed and are very happy to be back; now we just need to unpack and set up again.  What an adventure:)  One that I hope to never have to do again.

I can't wait to visit Yosemite again...
