It was wonderful seeing everyone! Now home after a grueling drive with more traffic than expected. Happy New Year!

San Clemente

Jane, Lori and everyone there, Nancy and I went a week earlier with the car trailer, stayed at the Best Western for our car thing and someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse so we left for home after two days with a empty trailer and a full pocket. The car is now in the show room at a Porsche dealer in Long Beach as they sold the car originally, 50 years ago.
We enjoy SC and would like to have a semi-permanent place there. Great restaurants, weather, views, location and beach trail, but Chico has a lot of trouble when the marines start firing the big cannons and the ground must vibrate as well as the noise. Doheny camp ground we stay at occasionally, but no hook-ups and more kids. We had to evacuate from there one time when they thought the wave from Japan might flood us out, a couple of hours and we returned with the trailer.
Sounds like you had a good time. We wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year.
Jack and Nancy

Howdy Jack! San Clemente was gorgeous. Ann and I did a drive-by too. Trailer had to stay home.

Hope to see you and Nancy at Jalama in September. Maybe you can get a site with a little better view of something besides the bathroom! Dates forthcoming.

For some time I've been trying to convince Angela we should drive south for a little warm weather, especially after seeing the pictures posted above. If we got at least as far as San Francisco we'd be sipping Mojitos on the beach. After seeing video this morning of southern snow, I'm glad we stayed home We'll try again in the spring when you folks get your weather issues sorted out

The cold weather was a gift from you Northerners! I admit the days down here got down to an artic 57 degrees at the beach for a couple days. We just put a little less ice in the margaritas! Life is always good at the beach.

Hey Dave, If you leave now, you can probably get to Southern CA by Saturday when it's suppose to begin warming up....high 70s. Come join us in Sept for our SCABs rally in Jalama, it's pretty spectacular!
