Home Sweet Home in Trinity
After picking up Trinity at the dealership following the repairs, we traveled to Cal Expo RV Park for our week in the Sacramento area. It was so good to be back in our rig after our visit with Erik, Tori and the grandkids. I must admit, it feels much better sleeping in our own bed again. We were bare bone glamping without many of our stored supplies and an empty refrigerator/freezer. So we picked up some essentials for breakfast and lunch at the grocery store for the week. We spent Thanksgiving weekend with Nick, Lindsey and the girls so in two weeks we were fortunate to see two of our three kid's families.
While in Sacramento we had a roof rack installed over the truck's crew cab and added a Thule storage box for some additional storage capacity. We now can carry all our scuba diving equipment and inflatable two-person kayak in the 11 cubic foot storage area. The drawback to this new accessory is the added height to the truck which is now 8 feet 6 inches tall so no more drive-thru fast food or car washes. We also need to be aware of low hanging entrances to parking garage structures in shopping malls. We headed back to Sonoma County on Monday, November 28.
Returning to Sonoma County we arrived at the Herrick vineyard base for the duration of this year. Our plans for December include a recreational diving trip with some of my fellow members of the Sonoma County Sheriff's dive team to Roatan, Honduras (December 3-11). We will visit with friends and church family throughout the holidays before leaving for a year on the road. Our itinerary is still in development, but the first part of January 2023 is scheduled with 6 days at Del Mar Beach at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California then east to Anza Borrego State Park for two days in the desert.
