Apple Valley

Day 42


Honda's Pink Slip
7:45am - Yesterday I phoned Rowena. During the conversation, I mentioned that I had to return to Apple Valley for Honda's pink slip.

In order to transfer ownership to the buyer, that pink slip has to be delivered. The pink slip is back in Apple Valley at Lone Wolf, inside sweet Twayler.

Rowena asked if I am going to fly? Flying never crossed my mind! I had planned to drive there with the Ford towing Scampy.


9am - Breakfast by George
When I made my breakfast this morning, Little iPhone captured a pic. Little iPhone told me, "That's a nice looking breakfast, George. Let's put it on the Blog!"






2pm - Little Honda to body shop
We made an appointment with Nels at Trachsel Body & Paint. Nels needed a paint sample from Honda.

We have an appointment for Honda to return on Friday, June 23rd at 10am. Honda should only be in the shop about an hour or so.

We don't know what it is about Oregonians! They are sooooo nice and polite. It's like all of the people in Oregon are from a small town.



3pm - Dealing with California DMV
It may seem to you that obtaining a Title of Ownership from California DMV would be an easy thing to do. It may turn out to be easy to do. However, keep in mind, this is California that we are dealing with.

Right at this moment, I have a phone call scheduled to come to me during the next hour or so from a DMV tech person. I'll report to you what happens!

3:40pm - Straight dope from the tech person!

I will be sending two forms to CA DMV:
➡︎ Change of address for Little Honda
➡︎ Application for duplicate or paperless title [pink slip] for Little Honda

The "pink slip" requires a $20 payment.

Since it will take about one month to receive the title [pink slip], I may be able to use that month to find a buyer for Honda so that I may receive the best
$price$. 😀

  1. Hi George!
    I believe you can get a duplicate sent to you for a fee (check with California DMV). It might save you money from having to fly back down there. I know when I traded in my car at a dealership, they said I didn't need to get the pink slip (if I didn't want to). So there might be an alternative. (??)
    Regards and Good Luck!

    1. Hi Tom,

      You are absolutely correct! I found the correct DMV California form, and am mailing it away this afternoon. Costs $20.

      I must change Honda's address so that I may receive the pink slip here in Oregon.

  2. You can drive to the nearest DMV inside of California and apply for a duplicate title (pink slip). Much closer.

  3. I came to the comment page to suggest what has already been suggested twice... Electronic titles cost a bit but save in the long run.

  4. Yreka DMV Office
    1848 Fort Jones Road
    Yreka, CA 96097
    (800) 777-0133
    I think this would be your nearest to Portland, Oregon
    My GPS says 325 road miles..Much better than 1000 miles to Apple Valley.

    1. Hi Sondra,

      Thank you. I downloaded that form and am finding out from CA DMV what to do.

      It's not really straightforward!

    1. Hi Point,

      So very true! California tries sooooo hard to make things hard to do! And, California is sooooo successful!

    1. Hi Rita,

      I understand your point. However, what I Blogged about is not about how some crazy people behave.

      What I Blogged about is how my experience here in Oregon showed me the small town character of the persons that I've met here.

    1. Hi David,

      Thank you!

      Yes, that is me. When I decide to do something like this, I go for it!

      In the bible, it cautions about being double minded. The confusion of being double minded comes often. I have to be extremely careful NOT to get sucked in!

  9. Oh and concerning the catlytic heater. I had one installed in my vw camper in the 80's. I moved it to my first class b and then my latest class b. 2 years ago I replaced it with a new one not because it stopped working but just because I found another one on sale. My wife loves the thing. No noise. I like it cause no battery drain.

    1. Hi Point,

      I'm going to remain in Oregon in order to have time enough to find a buyer for the Honda.

      Mountains sound like a lovely place for you!

  11. I realize the team has made a decision. However, I like the Honda/Scamp setup. A few tweaks would make it perfect. Anxious to see what you replace Fit with.

    1. Hi LBM,

      Yes, agree with your comment. In fact, the only thing that turned me was the installer at U-Haul. He stated flat-out that it was dangerous to use the Curt hitch to tow Scampy.

      So that left me with either listening to that installer, or going on my experience [in metalworking] and staying with the Honda/Scampy combo.

      One other thing. The Ford Transit Connect has a two storage cabinets in the back. And room for cargo. A much better storage area in the Ford compared with the Honda.

      Did you read my June 19th Blog where I describe the Ford Transit?
