From the past



A View From The Past

4am - Yesterday evening, in the process of replying to a Reader's comment, we wanted to provide an example of MsTioga getting stuck in the mud. We were searching for a long ago Blog post of ours in which we described such an example.

However, what we found by that search, turned up to be like a "time machine" kind of experience! That Blog post, from Saturday May 14, 2005, somehow was reproduced in the format that the TiogaRV Team used back then.

It is absolutely amazing! When you read that Blog post [see link below], you'll view the Mast Head pic that we used way back in those years. It is a Mast Head pic of me standing above the Sea of Cortez on a Camp Site that we used for three winters in the Mexican Town of Santa Rosalia in Baja California del Sur. 

I believed that this Mast Head pic was gone forever. And now, like magic, that Mast Head pic shows up!

Please click [here] to go back in time to 2005!

Note: We feel that this "Back in Time" experience is sooooo important as an historical perspective of our Blog, that we are devoting today's entire Blog post to sharing that "View of the Past" with you!

BTW: The place where I am standing in the Mast Head pic,
is my garden! Made up of rocks forming paths. Cactus and plants
that I collected from the area.

That was a fun time for me. I became a part of the community!

    1. Hi Carol and Bill,

      Yes! Pretty neat. I'd like to do that "Back in Time"
      thing for reals 😎 !

      I would choose to go back to my High School years,
      knowing all that I know now. That would be a trip!

  2. Yeah, I've been stuck a couple of times myself, but was able to get out without a tow truck. I was in sand, though, and it was easy to move it out of the way to make a lower, harder track to move out on. Your situation looks pretty deep and mucky! Quite an experience. I got a kick out of that Datastorm on the roof. It's huge, and I'll bet it was heavy. Things have sure changed, huh? It's fun to go back and see what we did years ago. :)

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Did you notice that my RV in that meadow was down to the axels?

      My Datastorm antenna weighed in at near 100 lbs. I paid $7,200 in 2003. By 2010, they were just about worthless. Replaced by WiFi.

  3. Yes, George! That is exactly the picture I wanted to find a few months ago. Remember, I told you that I was having trouble using your archives? I was trying to make the point that being a " gardener" was part of Tioga George way back then, so it was not a surprise that George at Guava Gardens was interested in flowers, etc.

    1. Hi RnR,

      Yes! I've always been a plant lover. At City Terrace Grammar
      School in East Los Angeles, we had a garden. And in Wilson Junior High, also in Los Angeles, we had an Agriculture class.

      Now I have a gorgeous flower garden. We had a BIG rain storm here in Apple Valley. After, my flowers bloomed big time!

  4. George, don't you think that RVers are at the ready to help one another? We have had help with several minor things but at the time seemed overwhelming. We are always thankful for a helping hand and try to pass it on.
