Traveling In The Slow Lane

We are parked at Rolling Hills Casino in Corning Ca, today we traveled for 4 1/2 hours.  I love going for just a few hours each day to our next destination.  Gives us time to explore and relax, it seems like we spend a lot of time relaxing.
 We are on our way to the Sacramento River Delta, We will park there for the month of Sept. at a RV Park that is about 15 minutes from Mark's .
We started our 700 mile trip on Monday, first day we drove about 5 hours to 7 Feather's Casino  and on Tuesday we drove about 70 miles to Medford and spent two nights there.
We have never spent any time in Medford so we had plenty of time to explore. For years I have wanted to visit Jacksonville, it is about 15 minutes from Medford.  Most of the town was built in the 1850's and it has been restored and  is on the historical register and was worthwhile visiting.  Probably spending a weekend there would be to long but a afternoon walking around and taking the trolly ride was perfect.
We are enjoying our trip so much that I have changed my mind about selling our motorhome.  I really love it when we are on the road.  This sure makes Herm happy because he is not ready to give it up yet.


This house was built 7 years ago, it is in a new subdivision, all the houses look like they were build in the mid 1800's.

I just hope that tomorrow will be enjoyable, the RV park is in a area that we are not familiar with.  With age we do not enjoy traffic especially in the RV.  Tomorrows route sounds a bit tricky, Mark printed it out for us.  It reads: you take the I-5 to the 505 to the 80 to the 640 and on and on from there.  I am the navigator and I sometimes get my right and left mixed up so we have some issues.  I promised Herm that tomorrow we will have no problems, and not to worry.  I will get us there,  My famous words " it will be just fine". I just hope that when we get parked Herm is smiling.

There are forest fires in Northern California, our entire ride today was smokey.  This is the first time driving through the Mt. Shasta area that we were not able to see the mountain or any blue sky.

Nice photos.. I have heard and read about Jacksonville too. It looks nice. If the homes are suppose to look like the 1800's, i would never have guess that. Some look a little like places I grew up in. hehe! . Glad you are still on the road. I am sure you will find the RV park w/o a problem, especially with GPS these days..:). thanks for writing about this..
