Friday, Saturday, October 20 and 21 2022 Headed for home near Downieville CA.
It was too chilly and early to get up, so back in bed for another hour.
Pavement starts here
The sign said pavement ends here which for us meant the wash board stops and the pavement begins.
We stopped here for a break and to make plans where to look for a camp spot on the way towards home. We’d need to find a camp spot for tonight as we didn’t want to travel home today as it would be a long drive.
We got back on the road and continued on down 49, turning off at Marysville road where we hoped to find a decent camp spot for the night.
Finding a camp spot
We’d just crossed the New Bullard’s Bar Reservoir dam when I saw a spot to pull over to on the side of the road to let a truck pass that had been following us. Since we were stopped I said let’s take a break for a bit and got out our chairs. While sitting there I noticed a small dirt road taking off from this pull over spot and said to Marty, I need to check out that little road there as it looks promising for a camp spot.
Eventually I got out of my chair and walked down that road and found it good enough for tonight’s camp spot.
We pulled on into the dead-end road and made camp for the night.
Tomorrow we have four hours or so driving to make it on home.
October 21, Going Home
Not too far from home traffic came to a complete stop and it was stop and go for a few miles. Turned out they were putting in new guard rails and really screwing up the traffic on a Saturday. There was also a lot of traffic so from now on, no traveling home on a Saturday, only Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Leaving on a Sunday is good as most people are headed for home which opens the way when going from home.
We made it home ok. I started to unload some of the stuff I needed in the house and then took it easy.
Nice day, Nice trip.
