Made it to Sacramento

We’ve been here at the Cal Expo RV Park since yesterday morning. But before getting here we had a wonderful night at Van Ruiten Family Winery in Lodi. Great wine, wonderful atmosphere, if you’re ever in Lodi we recommend you stop in!

Now we are sitting here at RV Park, it’s nice to be in full hook up. The location of the park is fairly quiet. But when we reserved we had been told that the shuttle for Aftershock Festival came to the RV park. Which was the big deciding factor on not bringing the car. We found out yesterday that the shuttle pickup is 2 miles away (Still on the Cal Expo property so it wasn’t a lie).. 2 miles through Sacramento streets, which makes us (well me in particular) feel very uncomfortable walking in the middle of the night.

Concert a night at Church Parking lot

Had a wonderful time at 5he The Bridge City Sinners and Twin Temple ! We spent the night at the local Assembly of God Church parking lot, they were very nice and accommodating, we thank them for allowing us to stay.

Tonight we head to Flying J in CA! We had someone ask why we don’t travel further in a day.. We could push and had madeMesa in one day. But we are in a 40ft RV, and found it’s safer for us and the RV to do smaller “jumps” our rule is 200 to 300 jumps. If we are wanting to go further in one day at 300 we have to take a long enough break so that the RV cools down, engine and tires.

We like traveling early mornings, later evenings or overnight, as it’s cooler, roads are cooler. Less wear and tear on tires, than running on hot surfaces.

Actors needed Haunted Hell Ride Rancho Rio Grande and Plateau Hame De Colquhoun

July was a quiet month We had few campers, we got a break from the desert and went to Phoenix for a concert, then took the RV and stayed at Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post . It was a nice park, but more crowded than we cared for. It had a pool and hot tub that we took advantage of.

Now we are back home and working on the next bigger events. Haunted Hay (Hell) Ride we are looking for volunteers for actors, drivers, attendants. With an after-party for all participants free camping.

Practice dates times to be determined.

2 in September after Labor Day, 2 in October before 21st. Contact us if you’re interested.

We also have a few private events and a couple trips we are getting ready for!!
