Moving Day

Good evening one and all. We left Pomona Fairgrounds this morning about 8 am and headed to freeway 57 and then took 210 west to the 14. Traffic was not bad at all and we made it to Thousand Trails, Soledad Canyon by 10 am. We are parked up in "N" section and there are a lot of other RVers here also. Most of the Thousand Trails Travelers are parked down in "K" section. We went down to the Adult Lodge for cards. Good interesting games.

We are up higher in the mountain range and there is snow in the very near distance. It was a beautiful day but the air was chilly. A jacket was needed for most of the afternoon.

I had banking business that needed to be taken care of so spent most of the afternoon in Palmdale at Wells Fargo. Hopefully everything is where it needs to be now.

Time to watch a little TV before getting a good nights sleep. Waiting for what tomorrow brings.

Final Day at FMCA Rally

This morning started as another beautiful day. Temperature started out in the 50's but soon was up in the 70's with wispy clouds in the sky.

Russ went over to the vendor's booths to make sure that he understood the new tire pressure system and the new brake system that we bought and were having installed today. We also had to make sure that the dealer that is making and shipping the jack blocks had the correct address for 1000 Trails up in Acton, CA. as that is our next destination. All is well and the brake system is installed and operational.

This afternoon we also had Interstate Battery come by and check out the batteries as they did not seem to be doing exactly what they are suppose to but according to them they are. We found out that the batteries are going on 3 years so that is why we are not getting all that we want out of them but we still have good life for now.

Tonight the entertainment was "The Bellamy Brothers". They sang and entertained the audience for about and hour and we really enjoyed them. As has been every night, there is a big race for the trolly. We just wait and catch the one with the least amount of people on it. We are home still before 9 p.m.

Tomorrow should be another interesting day as we move from here in Pomona up to Acton, CA.
Until then........

Another Great Day at Pomona, CA. FMCA Rally

Today Russ and I were up early and eager to get to the seminars that we wanted to join in on. Russ left first to go see about getting us a new tow brake system and he also wanted to see Interstate Battery about our batteries. Both are coming tomorrow to either instal the brake system and check batteries.

Tonight FMCA had "Herman's Hermits" for entertainment. Peter Noone was great along with his band. The audiance really got into all of the songs and we had a great time.

It has been a great day. Beautiful weather and much knowledged gained by everyone.

FMCA Rally in Pomona, CA Day 4

We are in Pomona, CA at the FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association Rally). This morning started out with the sun up bright and early. When I started out the door I had on my fleece jacket and before getting to the end of the street to catch the tram I headed back to the moho to leave the jacket as the temperature was rising and rising fast. As I am writing, it is 3 p.m. and the temperature outside is 80 degrees.

We have enjoyed many seminars and looked at a lot of the new motor homes. I have gone to two of the computehrr seminars and enjoyed both and have learned a lot. The instructors are Jim and Chris at Very knowledgeable people.
