 7:29 am - Friday - March 22nd - GNHS - 56° F, humidity 79%, wind 2 mph out of the southeast......partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 79° F.  On this date in 2022 TLE had just finished stowing the VW in the trailer in preparation for departure the next morning when we headed north to work at LPG&RVR for the first time.....

As is often the case I did not sleep well at the motel after our day of sightseeing with our good friends.  It was not the bed's fault as it was extremely comfortable, and the room was more than adequate.  I just don't do well the first night sleeping in an unfamiliar location with different sights and sounds than those with which I am familiar at my normal nocturnal location of repose (ie, the Newell).  I was up around 5 am typing my brief, vague, obscure, and uninformative blog post about Wednesday.  I made a cup of coffee using the coffee maker provided, but you know how those things are, right?  The brown coffee like elixir produced by that tiny coffee maker does have caffeine in it, is hot, and it gives off an aroma somewhat similar to real coffee, but that is about as close as it!

We were off around 7 am for some last minute sightseeing with our friends, before saying our 'until next times', and beginning our multi hour trip back to GNHS.  We stopped a few times to stretch our legs, and drain our bladders, and were home about mid afternoon, without incident.  We had a great time with our friends, whose wish to remain anonymous remains intact as of this writing, so this brief missive will have to suffice for now.

As many of you know, 'March Madness' (annual NCAA basketball tournament) began Wednesday with the 'First Four' games being played Tuesday and Wednesday.  The actual round of 64 began Thursday, so I missed several of the games early in the day Thursday, but was able to watch quite a few games between our arrival home, and when I went to bed a little after 10 pm.  There were several large upsets Thursday, so looking forward to Friday's games for more of the same.  Needless to say, but I will anyway, I slept soundly Thursday night, and feel quite refreshed as I write this brief recap of Thursday's happenings.

We had no bookings for rentals on Thursday, and have none today (Friday) as I write, but we do have a three day rental of one RZR beginning Saturday, and ending Monday afternoon.  Monday morning TLE and I will be making the 6 hour round trip drive to Poway for my, hopefully, final dermatological exam by Dr. Jou, and then we will have just the two days of dental appointments remaining for TLE in Los Algodones on April 4th and 5th before we haul anchor and head north to LPG&RVR.  As I write they are beginning 5, or 6 days of forecast rain and snow in Likely, so we'll be heading from early Spring back to late Winter in Northern California.

Thanks for stopping by!
