Re: Out In The Bus

Took the Crown out for one night to Orange Grove RV Park, which is only about 8 miles from where I live. It is exactly what it sounds like; you stay in an orange grove converted to an RV Park. It's a nice place, but not a whole lot of shade trees. But I was pleased with how my new solar blocking window screens performed. There was a noticeable difference inside the bus. For a Labor Day Weekend, there was hardly anyone else there. It was a nice quiet day of relaxation. My dogs and cats enjoyed it too. I have some new kittens that I found in my garage, so they went on the trip too since I am still bottle feeding them.

It's not what I would call a nice shade tree. It's sad. I had a huge old male persimmon tree with a 60 ft canopy in our last yard in TN. That was a nice shade tree.

Re: Out In The Bus

Got a chance to take the Crown out on the road again this week, to the Central California Coast in Oceano. Four nice days of relaxation and drinking beer Had a good time doing nothing and enjoying the skoolie in the wild...well...with the other RV'ers

On the road through the coastal mountains to the beach!


The gulls, ducks, and others




The Brown Crown


My cat TC (the black one) and my new cat Venus. TC is watching for birds.




My dog Bob and Venus relaxing



The campsite




A good campfire...very nice to enjoy needing one since the Bakersfield summer was brutal with heat as usual
