We woke up this morning to the rain that had been predicted. Oh well. We had hoped to get things unhooked, slid in, and ready to go before the rain, but you know what they say, "the best laid plans." We were out the gate at Pismo Coast Village by 7:30. As planned, we went North on Hwy. 101 to Paso Robles to take the Hwy. 46 connection. OK...that was good. The next plan had us connecting with Hwy. 41, and that would take us on a direct route to Kettleman City and I-5. Those "best laid plans" had ideas of their own as Hwy. 41 was closed at that point. Never at a loss for a "new plan" we continued on Hwy. 46 to Lost Hills and I-5. It took us about 30 miles further South than we had planned, but it got the job done.
As we drove North, we had some nice views of the beautiful green rolling hills along our route. The recent rains really greened those babies up! Give it a few months and they will be as brown as the desert sand. We also enjoyed all of the nut trees in the orchards that line the interstate. They were flowering up nicely.
I would like to thank everyone who left comments with 'safe travel wishes'. Much appreciated. So far, so good. Tomorrow we'll be somewhere in Oregon, South of Portland. Maybe way South of Portland if the weather is snowy on the mountain passes. I'll check the weather reports before turning in for the night to see what the prediction is for tomorrow.
Until next time.....so long for now!
