Welcome to 2022, my friends! I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get online this morning. I started this post yesterday evening, and wasn't able to upload any pictures. This morning, all the yahoos (and their automatic weapons fired off at midnight) are still in bed, and so they aren't hogging all the bandwidth. Not that I would ever hog bandwidth...just sayin'. And this gives me an opportunity to say our internet access could get a little dicey over the next week or so. Tomorrow we'll be heading to a small park in Bakersfield before reaching Lake Skinner Recreation Area, a California state park...or maybe it's a county park...either way. Those are the kinds of areas where we're often in an internet desert. If you don't hear from me for the next week or so, that will be the reason.
But let's back up to our last driving day of 2021. As we left Oroville, we could see the snow-capped mountains off in the distance, and we were glad we weren't there.
