We've got a pretty good handle on the summer of 2013 now. Thought we did earlier, but for some reason started checking average temperatures and realized we had routed ourselves through the desert for 3 weeks during July. Not good with AVERAGE temperatures in the 100's daily.
Had to make this in two maps, so we'll go through each of them. An asterisk (*) denotes an Elks Lodge.
We'll take off from Portland, TX making overnight stops at Kerrville*, Fort Stockton, and Las Cruces* on our way to Albuquerque where we'll spend a month.
Mid June we'll make an overnight in Raton, NM on our way to Westminster*, Colorado for a month.
Mid July, we'll make overnights in Laramie and Rock River Wyoming on our way to Salt Lake City, Utah.
Towards the end of August, we'll head to Reno/Sparks, NV with overnight stops in Wells and Winnemucca.
As we enter California, we'll have a weeks stay at Roseville* and Carmichael*, we'll pull into Fremont* for 5 nights for this summer's feature event, the Ohio State Buckeyes playing a road game at Cal-Berkeley.
You can use the +/- feature to make the map bigger below:
After the game at Cal, we'll continue on down the coastline with week long stops at Santa Clara*, Santa Cruz* (only 2 nights), Salinas*, Atascadero*, San Luis Obispo*, Santa Barbara*, Canoga Park*, Downey*, Garden Grove*, Oceanside* and 5 nights at El Cajon*. 10 weeks exploring California!
We'll make our way to Yuma, AZ for a week then on to Desert Trails RV Resort in Tucson, AZ for our winter.
Hope you'll be along for the virtual ride!
