Nice Travel Days…Others Not So Much!

We left Palm Desert and with not much time to spare until our next rotation began in Bullhead City. Only about half of the drive was on the Interstate and the rest on some great highways. We stopped in Lake Havasu City, AZ at the Havasu Falls RV Resort and enjoyed the pool for a few hours talking with a couple from San Diego who were on their last part of their 30 day travel to many of the National Parks in Utah and Arizona.

Worked for Lt Blender at Sam’s in Bullhead City and this event was so much better than Palm Desert. We only had a mile ride on our bikes, the place was so much busier and we made much better sales which made us much more money. We hope this trend continues since we are planning several more rotations with this company.

We left Bullhead City and headed to Sacramento with a few great travel days and one that was very challenging. We left Barstow and headed to Bakersfield with a short day of 150 miles planned. Most of the drive there was wind, even though the weather predicted no wind for that day. This is a major truck route and when they passed us we felt the additional wind a few times when it felt it had lifted us off the ground.

In some areas it is a two lane highway that had all double yellow lines which meant NO PASSING EVER, apparently this idiot in a black sports car did not see those lines. He had 2 semis and about 6 cars ahead of him when he came out into our lane…at first we thought it was a vehicle we were catching up to but then we realized he was coming right at us and would not be able to pass all these vehicles and it looked as if he did not even consider getting back in line. We had to leave the highway onto the emergency lane completely as he barely missed us.

At another moment we watched a jet plane that was really low make a turn towards us that came even lower and then it was gone…weird!

About a mile to our exit we began to take a deep breath and relax but then there was an accident between two semis which took us over an hour for that last mile.

We are so grateful that these were all close calls and nothing really happened to us but we are so happy that those not so great travels days are few and far between each other and we are grateful that we are now out of the heat and into some perfect temperatures both days and nights.

For the next 10 days we are hanging out in the Isleton/Lodi area just relaxing until our next rotation at Sam's Club in Sacramento begins.
