Off To Pinnacles NP
Friday: (12/26) Nice clear skies today. I put a few more plants in the green house and covered the two raised succlent beds. It's starting to get colder. I also drained the holding tanks. Leftovers for breakfast. I prepared a version of my breakfast sandwich with a few deviled eggs halves, two strips of bacon, and cheese in a sourdough bun. Lou and Dawn were doing their packing and Lou did some vegetable shopping. We were on the road at the planned latest departure of 2pm. Traffice got terrible when we merged onto Highway 101 from Highway 85 in South San Jose. Stop and go all the way to Gilroy. last time for a similar backup we headed over to Monterey highway and got and got caught for over an hour in a detour around a street faire. This time we toufed it out. We got off in San Martin and visited the Camping World store where I got a new switch for the water pump. When we got back on the highway, traffic was finally moving. It was now starting to get dark since it was 1645. A very slow drive down to here. We continued on to Highay 25 through Hollister and to Pinnacles National Park and were parked in our space a little after 1800. An hour later than I'd hoped. Leftover stew for lunch. Chicken, dressing, potatoes, and fruit salad for dinner.
