Soooooo......, it looks like it has been over 2 years since I last posted on our travels. I won't even attempt to cover the past 2 years other than to say we've been east-west and north-south. But, I will try to post more often, than every 2 years, in the future.
Christmas Monkey is no longer with us. He has been passed along to other family members for safe keeping. Since he is always with us in spirit, we'll keep the name of our blog the same.
After many, many months of sitting in Sacramento while Howie received treatment for lung cancer we are at long last back on the road. Our first stop is Park Sierra (SKP park) in Coarsegold, CA. The park is close to Yosemite NP for day trips, but mostly it is wonderful to be in the Sierra foothills, among the trees and out of the big city. We stopped in town yesterday to pick up "tourist information" and learned that Coarsegold is famous for its Tartantula Festival, in October. We'll, no doubt, skip that!
