Our drive over the mountains from the Mojave desert was interesting. The slow climb on the east side was deceptive. We topped the mountains at over 4000 feet and then on the west side we had a steep decline to Bakersfield. At times we were dropping with the engine break slowing us and me using the breaks from time to time to help.
Tonight we made an overnight stop in Bakersfield to stock up on groceries and get ready for the next two stops. Tomorrow's stop will be a full hookup park but not near any stores. The next after that will be in the mountains at the King's Canyon portion of the Sequoia National Forest. No hookups. No cell service. Just mountains and huge trees. It will be a real test of the booster if we can even get a phone call out at all. I really doubt we get anything.
As we came over the mountains, we dropped into a valley of citrus and fields of produce. Even the RV park is in a citrus grove. Our 5th wheel has orange trees on both sides. To bad they we are early in the year because nothing is ripe.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
