The drive towards home

Wow! Has it been a week already? I guess what they say is true. Time flies when you are having fun.
We were able to unhook, dump tanks, drive down the steep windy driveway all with no mishap.
Even stopped and put gas in the RV at Costco in Gilroy (yep...the Garlic Capitol). Strangely, the pump stopped at exactly $100. Do they limit how much you can buy? Or are the trying prevent people fainting from shock at the dollar amount? 

The drive home was fairly uneventful. Stopped for a lunch break along Highway 5. The central valley is not the most scenic drive and seldom appears in tourism ads for California but is the "breadbasket" of the state. We got a photo or two of these wide open spaces...
Lots of farmland, agricultural area, and the California Aqueduct to look at.

Needless to say tsk wasn't too impressed with the scenery either....
He is the best traveling cat I know!

So tomorrow morning we return the rented RV. We had a really good time on our very first time doing this. We had no mishaps, didn't forget any important items. We were both able to drive the RV without too much distress. All in all we think it's something we would like to to again!
Thanks to everyone who came along with us via this blog and for all the great comments left. We have loved reading them all!


  1. OH pawsome I am so glad you all had a good time in RV. TSK is best travelling kitteh! He so cute napping away when travelling!! xoxox

  2. It's a good thing you were well north of the Harris Ranch feed lots or we would have seen a different look on TSK's face.

  3. What a great trip. I seriously think you should considier buying one of those. It's obvious TSK could care less - he's just right at home becuase his people are with him. You sure lucked out with a terrific cat!
