Well, there is not a whole of of news to report. My stay at Boca was cut short again due to bad weather. I was awaken to the rocking motor home with 40 mph winds and decided to wait for daylight to determine what to do. The forecast predicted continuing high winds and 6-8 inches of snow. I hooked up and was out of there by 7:00 A.M. and back to Verdi to park my RV in front of my house. I figured I could dodge the HOA patrol for a few days. (We now have a no RV- parking -on- the street rule, not even for loading and unloading). I dodged the patrol as they showed up while I was pulling out on Friday to go back to Boca.
I headed out on Tuesday with a stop in Livermore to see my kayaking and road biking buddy. Spent Wednesday morning road biking a 20 plus mile ride in the beautiful hills north east of Livermore. Then headed over to San Jose to see my brother and have dinner. The Bay area has great weather but the traffic is not friendly so you have to plan travel during the non commute hours (generally 9 A.M. -2:30 P.M. and the in the late hours of the night and wee hours of the morning and then there can still be traffic).
This morning I left San Jose and headed down to Pacific Grove to see my mother and also catch up with a few high school friends. I was able to secure a spot at the Elks club which is the least expensive place to stay on the whole Monterey Peninsula.. $20.00 per night with electricity and water and on site dump but basically a parking lot. Other RV parking in the area runs from $40.00-$65.00 per night with no better amenities. Ouch!
The weather is beautiful. So glad to be out of the wind and snow of Tahoe!!
