We are back home after a whirlwind trip to Sacramento that started yesterday morning at 5:30 in Ojai and ended at 11 tonight in LA. We have successfully delivered a 42-foot Spartan to our orange grove, navigating over 720 miles and managed to climb up 4183 feet at the Tejon Pass and then gingerly descend.
We were up early this morning – at the RV storage lot by 6:30 – and drove out of there at 10. We arrived in Ojai just as the sun was setting, around 8 pm. We encountered a slight glitch when we were turning onto the private road for the orange grove. A mailbox out front almost got clipped by the very long trailer and there was a car across the street from the turn that was a little too close for comfort. But, we made it and now we are both dead tired and ready for bed.
So, let me just give Ray Beaty a shout-out for figuring out all the trailer lights, making sure the tires and brakes were in good working order and then driving all the way from Sacramento to Ojai with the trailer. I drove yesterday from Ojai to Sacramento and took over this evening for the drive to LA.
Okay, I can hardly keep my eyes open so I must say good-night. Thanks to all for your well-wishes along the way.
I’m be checking back tomorrow after a very long sleep!
Driving into Ojai this evening.
