Old Road



Route 66

7am - Heading out of Palmdale
We are going in a southerly direction. Lots of desert. We came to a sign which announced: "Historic Route 66 next right." So, we went right!

We came to a place where a bunch of oak trees created a shady place for Morning Camp. A stone marker described this area.





2pm - Arrived City of Temecula
We did not realize until we just checked that our trip beginning in Palmdale today was 115 miles distance.

Honda & Scampy get 22 miles per gallon. So the fuel for this trip cost $15. The late MsTioga got 7 MPG and this trip for her would have cost $47!

I don't get sleepy driving anymore. That's probably due to sleeping 7-8 hours each day 😎. It seems to me that my overall health has improved since my sleeping habits got sooooo much better!

6pm - Fridge vent cover destroyed!
I'm supposed to do a "walk-around" before driving Honda when towing Scampy. I must have forgotten! And the pic below shows the result. 😫

Our Dometic fridge's flame goes out whenever Scampy is moving. This is a defect which appears to have no good resolution. So, I have to remove the vent cover and restart the flame every time Scampy parks.

I am guessing that when I restarted the flame this time, I forgot to reinstall the vent, and just drove away. Somebody drove over the vent when it was left lying in the parking lot.

Oh no!


PS: A replacement vent for our Dometic was just ordered from Amazon. Until it arrives, we will be ventless! [Just a bit of humor. 😄 ]

    1. Hi Suz,

      Thank you! Good comment!

      I really miss MsTioga. But, with Honda and Scampy, I get about 22 MPG vs 7 MPG with MsTioga!

  3. Have to say it. You look so well for your age. Slim and trim. I have maintained my weight between 183 and 186 since I was 21. Not easy, but no meds ever. I recently dropped to 175 through careful diet to see what it would feel like to be closer to my BMI. Can't say I feel much better. I will give i a while. Take care and have fun.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Thank you!

      We have weight loss in common. When I stopped all meds, my weight dropped from around 182 to 150 over about 6 months.

      Together with going to 24 Hour Fitness every other day, I now feel much, much better.

  5. It was adventurous of you to venture forth in a ventilated state. If future events require inventions that exhaust your inventory, conventional wisdom would dictate relevant preventative maintenance to circumvent becoming insolvent. Otherwise, you might be forced to take up ventriloquism, or worse, wind up in a convent (they have to let men in now, due to anti-discrimination legislation...)
