From The Jungles of Oregon To The Redwood Forests And On To The California Highlands

Our spot at Whalers Rest Thousand Trails was spectacular with a beach access trail within steps of our front door, excellent clubhouse and indoor pool but the wet weather left us drowning.

The management threw a hell of a good Thanksgiving dinner and there were plenty of attractions to keep us busy each day.

Once our reservations were set for our next resort stay, over 500 miles away, we ordered a replacement tank for our leaking 10 gallon Attwood water heater and had it shipped forward to our next long stay in Oregon House CA.

We took a couple days to get there choosing not to drive after dark and practicing our super cheap stealth camping.

The Redwoods are a must see. Pictures do them no justice. We were left speechless at their size and beauty.

Soon it was time to leave the coast and start our trek inland toward our next reservations.

Historic Town of Shasta CA

Lake of The Springs Thousand Trails in Oregon House CA is a huge and mostly empty rv resort this time of year and even has its own private lake. We found a great hillside spot full of wildlife and great privacy.

Not sure where we're headed next but there's talk of Las Vegas....
