Pala Casino, San Diego CA 2018

Pala Casino, San Diego CA 2018
St Pats is March 17 but we celebrated it two weeks early this year. Naming an event is mostly a way to give it character before the characters show up to camp. We set up Pala Indian Casino for this years StPats SoCal event. Tim and the caterer set the theme and decked the halls. I am so glad he likes to decorate because it sets a mood and makes the...

Jackson California Event 2018

Tim and I visited the Northern California group last year and so much wanted to make it back once again to see the folks we don't get to see at event south of Pismo Beach. One of the best things that came out of this event was the formation of some other event choices. Keep an eye on the calendar for more information on that. On the way up to Jacks...

Three days after we got back home we decided to spend a week dry camping (camping an RV without hookup to Utilities) along the coast at the Rincon Parkway in Ventura I started the morning early with a quick drive to San Diego to visit a customer ...

RVers are the Nicest People

RVers are the Nicest People

One thing that Donald and I have noticed is that for the most part, the people we run into in RV parks are some of the nicest people. Of course the Rainbow RV rallies involve some of the nicest people we know, however, when we venture off on our own for either a weekend getaway or holiday week, we have noticed that the people around us are just more relaxed and have a carefree attitude about life. Perhaps it is because of the type of  resorts we go to or is it because by nature, the people who we run into are on vacation and therefore, much more relaxed. We love going for frequent walks and seeing all the different types of RVs and getting to know the park, and almost every single time, we get frequent "hellos", "how are you" or even strike up conversations. Just an observation that I wanted to share to see if any of you have had similar experiences. Anyway, we just signed up for the Temecula Wine Rally in June which is kind of silly because we literally live about 7 miles from the RV park, but again, there is something magical and cathartic when we go on a trip, even if it is in our backyard! Looking forward to reconnecting with existing friends and looking forward to making new friends as well!

 

 

Luis and Donald (and Molly)

Driving the coast! PCH to San Fransisco & back to the desert

Happy Holidays!  We are heading up & down the southern coast, from palm springs to san fransisco & back!  May not be exciting to you, but we are STOKED!!  Please, any one that has done this that may have words of wisdom, chime in.  It's a week, and seems like enough time to get a real sense of the PCH.  Maybe not.  We're reaching out to anyone that might by chance be doing the same thing or has done it & has irresistable advice or recommendations.  Driving a 24' Tioga dark gray with a golden retriever at the helm.  Peace!

Southwest Road Tour?

Chris and I are starting to plan a week long honeymoon road trip starting December 26th. Were guessing the Southwest is a better destination than heading north that time of year. We're looking for suggestions! RV Parks? Must-see sights? We're open to suggestion! You can contact us here or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thanks fellow RRVers.

A Year in Review of Two New RVers

A Year in Review of Two New RVers 

July 2013- July 2014

 

What a year! In July, the US Supreme Court upheld that Prop 8 was indeed unconstitutional! Donald and I were elated and we wasted no time in scheduling our appointment to get married, On July 9, 2013, Donald and I were officially married, after 18 years. Our marriage ceremony was quiet and simple, with our best friend Shirley and our god-daughter Randi, as our witnesses. I wont say we did it on the cheap, however, I did make sure we were coordinated in Donald's favorite color; yellow.

The Fabulous Fifth Wheel

When, a few years ago, I suggested to my partner Dave that giving up our day jobs, selling our B&B in New Orleans and setting out in an RV to tour America for a couple years would be a swell adventure, I was expecting an arched eyebrow and withering stare. Dave loves New Orleans. Dave loves familiarity. Dave hates surprises.  And yet…he agreed. With surprisingly little hesitation.

An act of love?  Of course.  But there is an adventurer’s spirit deep in his soul as well. And this particular solution to feeding that spirit comes with a bit of familiarity hitched to the back of the truck.

And so, much to my astonishment, the adventure began.

Our first year on the road has been more fun, more fascinating, more fulfilling than either of us imagined. And I've been blogging about it all along the way here: http://fabulousfifthwheel.com/.

Long Beach Pride 2014

Well this was my first pride event, and my first event in Long Beach. The park was great and I couldn't have had a better site location.  The meet and greet as well as the potluck was fantastic.  Hooked up with some old friends, made some new friends, and lusted after some others ;). I had a blast.  This was my first time participating in the parade and I must admit,  Rainbow RV was looking good, as well as all the guys and gals that participated. In my humble opinion we were the best entry in the parade. Thanks  Tim and Greg, and all the people who attended.  After all, Tim and Greg provide the vehicle, but it's the participants that drive it home, and this was one ride, I didn't want to end.  Overall another 5 star event.

Gettin Ready for the Bodega "Trailer Trash" weekend.

Now this weekend is taking some thinking.  Being trailer trash and all, it almost leaves the door wide open as to how to decorate at this event.  I am sure there will be some festive decorations show up.

 

We loved the Temecula meet up and this one to be as good.  Loved meeting the Rainbow RV hosts Greg and Tim.  What a couple of great guys.  As newbies, they made us feel right at home.

 

We are not doing a dog show this weekend so we can come to this gathering and what a joy it will be to take the weekend off and enjoy.  We are sure we will but hope to meet some great people this weekend.
