What a Strange Driving Day

Since we had some time to spare, we decided to take another detour and head to the Jackson Rancheria Casino in Jackson, California. It was sort of on our way and since we had been wanting to go to for a few years we thought we would take the drive.

Instead of taking US-50 W, we needed to take NV-88 to CA-88 to the casino.

The road was beautiful but was a long and winding road that seemed as if we would never reach our destination, but we did…finally!

We have been traveling without reservations our entire time full-timing and have never had any problems getting into a park, but that all changed today. When we pulled up, after a very tiring drive, not in miles but in road conditions, we were relieved. But instead of being graciously welcomed...

We were informed without a reservation, we would not get into the park that evening or for the next few days for that matter. We asked about boondocking and he advised us that they frown on it but we could go and park and see if they said anything. Not what we had in mind, so we passed and drove on to our next destination.

It was an additional 90 mile drive to our next destination, after a phone call confirming they had vacancy, which they did we were on our way. To get to this park was another climb through some winding roads so the drive was slow, but we finally arrived and got hooked up.

Our plan was to stay for 4 nights but after a few findings upon hooking up, we decided to stay only one night and move onward to another park.

We never used to make reservations back in the 90's when we traveled for long vacations. Now since we try to use our membership parks at every opportunity, reservations are a must. We got used to it.

Hope you continue to enjoy your journey. Your pics are beautiful so far.

HWY 88 the road I drive all winter to go skiing. You guys were in our back yard, to bad we were not home. Jackson Rancheria is a nice place to stay, but has become very popular with the California crowd. The casino is nice, but the food is expensive. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
