Advice on California Hwy #1
7:15am - Yesterday, Reader Phil sent email warning about State Route #1. We checked the CalTrans website this morning. It appears that there are a bunch of closures. So, we are heading north on US #101.
MsTioga and I traveled the coast route [State #1] many times. It's a bit of a challenge to make Nite Camps along this extremely scenic road. Anyway, we will miss the gorgeous views!
Cricket low speed data
Yesterday we Blogged to you about how we were doing with Cricket Communication's low speed data connection. A few days ago, we used up all of our high speed data for the present period [Ending May 16th].
Our experience is, that very often, low speed data is pretty fast! Also, we are guessing that high speed data speed may be VERY slow at times.
So, we are just going to quit bothering ourselves with data speed stuff. What will be, will be!
10:30am - Breakfast
The Scampy RV Team has Morning Camped in the Town of Santa Margarita so that George may fix his breakfast. And it's a good one!
French toast, sausage and egg
During breakfast, Boid kept staring thru the window at the "No Overnight Camping" sign.
Finally, after a long time of staring, Boid tweeted:
"Wouldn't it be nice and friendly if that mean sign invited
travelers to stay over night at Farmer John's empty field?"
Boid stares at the mean sign!
12:15pm - Atascadero
We have arrived at the library in the City of Atascadero. Little iPhone bought the Jim Croce album, "Lost Time in a Bottle" and was having a tough time downloading the songs [because of the slow data thing].
The library has free WiFi. iPhone's songs are now downloading like crazy! 😊
4:30am - Staying in Atascadero
We are thinking about staying the nite in the City of Atascadero. Since leaving Lone Wolf, we have covered about 270 miles. Today only 35 miles. The Scampy RV Team is a take-it-easy crew!
We have scouted out our Nite Camp site. It's in a residential neighborhood. Next to a wood fence. When we stay in residential, we like having a fence next to us!
Stuff to mention:
- Looks as though there will be no more 24 Hour Fitness Clubs until we reach the San Francisco Bay area! Man-O-Man!!
- John and Mimi buy their two budgies Millet Spray. We bought Millet Spray for Baby Boid this morning. Wow! Boid went thru his millet seeds sooooo fast!
