This past year I feel very fortunate to have added an Airstream into our lives. We had been talking about it for over twenty years. Instead of waiting until retirement we decided now is the time to enjoy traveling with a little more comfort.
My love of travel keeps me happy and satisfies my strong sense of curiousity
In particular we are happy that there is a shower to clean up after trail runs, ample room for puppies, and a kitchen. We now join the ranks of trailer park people. It’s a fun and interesting subculture – I’m a white trash superstar!
Day 7 of the 66 day being in the moment challenge – road trips.
A great road trip does not have to be long, but it should always be fun and preferably to somewhere you have not been before.
Don’t be in a hurry. Road trips can be purposeful and structured, but never rushed.
An afternoon wander not too far from home is a great way to discover a road less traveled.
We call it the tank
Our road trip vehicle
Park road in Sequoia National Park
A road trip is a great way to be in the moment – turn off the phone, breathe deeply, smile, listen to music, talk to your copilot, and enjoy the journey.
P.S. – Sometimes getting lost isn’t so bad!
Some great roadside architecture and special places in Tulare County, California, between Sequoia National Park and Visalia.
Pumpkin Hollow Bridge an open spandrel reinforced concrete arch was built in 1922, spans the Kaweah River in Three Rivers.
Just to the north of the bridge is the Gateway Restaurant and Lodge, which displays a great sign enticing travelers to and from the park.
Further to the west stands the The Cottonwoods in Lemon Grove with great local history. The town also includes a restored and a vacant service station.
