Finally on our way!!!!!!

You wouldn’t believe how much stuff fits in a small, 2-bedroom apartment! And it just seemed to keep coming up out of the ground!!!!!!!

But finally after 3 days of packing and stuffing things into storage, we got on our way today at 4pm!!! Said goodbye to the lovely people at our leasing office in South Beach Marina Apartments; a few small errands, filled up Sterlin and off we were .. .and immediately all the stress from the last few days evaporated – not that Stephen was stressed at all!

Amidst all that stress I managed to have a nice birthday though. Stephen got some wonderful take-away thai food for us and we enjoyed that with a bottle of Veuve, on our camping furniture, in our living room.

Went for drinks in 21st Amendment with good friends for our last evening – thanks guys!

Greetings from Red Bluff, CA from where we will go to Lassen tomorrow!


  1. I’m sure it was the Veuve who took the stress away … you mentionned the word ‘stress’ 3 times in your ‘finnaly on our way’, who was stressed again ? Good luck guys and have lots of fun, no stress !!!

  2. so glad to see that you are off to a great start, both on your trip and in keeping your blog current. safe travels, and remember that we will be reading vicariously

  3. Sorry to miss the big soiree. I really wanted to be there for the b-day/send-off bash! I’ll definitely make the welcome back party.

    Happy trails… may Sterlin always have a full tank and your cooler always contain chilled Veuve! 🙂

    Looking forward to the updates.
