Camper Jeff said I should be doing a trip report or something. I went with trip report, I apologize.

Nemo and Mrs. Nemo were coming back down from their Alaska trip the same time Lynn and I were going in that direction. A tidbit of information gleaned from a Facebook post led me to connect with them and wallah, a promise to "try" to meet up was made. Giving us both leeway to do our own thing and if we missed each other we'd try again another time.

These are a few pics of the trip and report, the whole beachalada can be seen if you click here...or here...or HERE!
Don't worry, rv.net will be here when you hit the "back" button.

Lynn and I took many backroads to get to Gold Bluffs Beach in Northern California, our starting point before driving north up the coast. I said back roads didn't I?

Nice, Dave.
Let me summarize -- Arizona boy moves to Idaho, goes on vacation to California and Washington, tries to be a cowboy with a real herd, gets lost in the big trees, almost gored by an elk, meets up with a sub-mariner, and gets crab(s).
Does that about cover it?
No, actually there's a lot more.

(boy, that other Outfitter looks wrong on a Ford, doesn't it)

Nice work, Dave. But then again when don't you ever do amazing work, especially in TRs. I know I am glad you took the time to put together this report for many of us, including myself, to enjoy. Mr. and Mrs. Nemo are some great people and glad you slowed them down long enough to count the waves!

Safe travels to all.

Ha! A Whazoo trip report! That was just what I needed this November evening (my day is a couple hours ahead, being in Europe and all)

Thanks so much! Great pictures, and I think you had a good time. Thanks, Janina & Joerg
