SoCal sojourn........

8:04 am - Sunday - March 25th - Fontana, CA - 48º F, 76% humidity, wind is 2 mph out of the east.....partly cloudy with a forecast high of 61º F.....wait, what?  Where did the warm weather go?

I was up by 6:30 am in anticipation of our 79 mile drive 'home'.....there was not much for me to do other than disconnect the water and electric, then roll our wheels, but I am what I am, and on any departure morning I am up early thinking about what could go wrong.  Nothing ever goes wrong, and maybe nothing goes wrong because I spend so much time thinking about what could go wrong.....I'm not sure, but I will still keep getting up early, nonetheless.

We were out of our site by 8:30, and over at the other end of the parking lot dropping the trailer on the Newell hitch.  Once the trailer was secured we walked over to Steven and Linda's Travel Supreme to exchange 'until next times' with them as well as Bill and Kelly, and then we were off in a cloud of dust.  Our desired departure time was 9 am, and by 9:07 am we were heading north on Madison Street, and eventually I-10 westbound, which would take us all the way to Cedar Ave., and the Fontana/Rialto Elks Lodge......


......we arrived at the lodge around 10:50 am to find our favorite site #7 available.  Within minutes we had backed into our site and were setting things up for a 3 weeks stay....


......our concrete piers we bought 18 months ago when we were last here were still there for us to use to anchor our patio awning against the periodic Santa Ana winds which can be a problem.  The Fontana/Rialto Elks Lodge is our home lodge, and we are so glad we chose this lodge.  Everybody knows us and treats us like family whenever we are in town.

By 5:30 pm we were on our way over to our son's home in Ontario for an engagement party for good friends Tony and Amy.  A bonus was four of our five children where able to be there to welcome us home once again......


.....whenever these guys get together there is always a 'jam' session in progress.....

.......I am surrounded by so many gorgeous women in my family......moi, Laila (daughter-in-law), and daughter Katie.....I'm a lucky guy!


We lingered at the engagement party until almost 9 pm when we headed for home.  There will be many more hugs over the next three weeks!
