On the road again
2/16/06, 4:21pm
Just can't wait to get on the road again...

Early Saturday morning I'll be heading to Cambria. And, I mean EARLY. I'm supposed to be there by 9am. I'll be meeting up with about 30 people from the Canon forum for the weekend. Sunday afternoon when the shindig breaks up I'll be heading back to my favorite haunt: Jackson. I called Tracie this morning and reserved the Pumpkin Room for three nights. On my way home, if the roads are open, I'll swing by Yosemite. I need to buy a new National Parks pass, and I haven't been there in a while anyway.

I haven't even started packing yet! I have to get busy...

Be careful. Supposed to rain on Saturday, especially the Central Coast. Snow down to 3500' too.

I have this pic in my head with Thomas doing this camera thing in Cambria..and then everyone heads back to the hotel..and the guests are appauled by the language coming out of Thomas' room as he watches DeadWood....

I'll probably see some rain on the way up, but I actually want to. I just treated the car's windows with Rain-X and I wanna see how well that stuff works. My brother swears by it! I also put their anti-fog stuff on the inside of the windows. This weather should be perfect to test that.

I'll be coming home via the Grapevine, but not until Wednesday, and it should all be cleared up by then.

At least it won't be anyone I know. The rest of the gang all booked really expensive rooms in Cambria and Morro Bay. Oh, and Dwight is staying in his motorhome at a campground on the beach somewhere.

Cambria is on the central coast of California, between San Luis Obispo and Hearst's Castle. As a camera guy, you would LOVE it...lots of sea lions on the coast and some beautifil country to see.

Cambria itself sits right on the coast and in many areas, you can rent a house that has an ocean view. Cambria is a tourist/artsy kinda town. Lots of great little shops and restaurants.

The area around Cambraia is the new wine area for the state and personally, I think that the wines that come from there are far better than anything Napa has produced..but that is my opinion.

The wife and I just LOVE the central coast. There is a lot to do there...but it is also a great place just to find a quiet spot and read.

Cambria is also a good starting point for other things in the area..Hearst's Castle, San Luis Obispo, Moro Bay, Pismo Beach..all great places to see. There is also a nature refuge..darn if I didn't forget the name, in Moro Bay. A nice place to visit and you get a sense of what California used to look like.

It rained off and on all day today. The rest of the group said there was some pretty serious, hard hail coming down on the way to Montana De Oro, but I didn't see it. I was about a half hour behind them, and it was over by the time I went through that part of the highway. I just saw light rain occasionally all day. That Rain-X sure does work!

It's been fun so far. A couple people here were on the Catalina trip last year, and I've known Tom and his wife for a couple years. The rest are all online friends I've known for a couple years but had just never actually met until now.

Without looking ahead, I'll bet Bill already covered this one. He loves this area. Personally, I don't really care that much for it. It's ok, just not my cup o' tea. On the Canon forum we put it up for a vote. I voted for Yosemite. Me and the 16 others who wanted that were outvoted. I'll show them! I'm going to Yosemite on Wednesday anyway... lol

Are you thinking of Montana De Oro? That's a state park, but I didn't see anything saying it was a nature refuge also, and I didn't see signs for any other.

Imagine that... A California State Park that doesn't charge for admission!

By the way, there's supposed to be a tilde over the second "n" in Montana. It's a Spanish name, pronounced Montanya De Oro. Not named after that other state...

That's it! But..I thought it was a refuge. (I am talking about the part that you cannot camp in.)

I wish I had Ran-X Friday night. I nearly rearended some guy on the 210 in Tujunga because I couldn't see clearly through the windshield. I went out yesterday and replaced the wipers and bought some Rain-X.

Stay dry, but have fun!!! I wish I was going with you to the Gold Country.

If there's a part of it that's a refuge, I didn't see it. We didn't spend all that much time there, but it looked to me like it was wide open for people to trample all over everywhere. There was only one campground I saw, though.

I'm a Rain-X convert now for sure! That stuff is great. You do still need good wiper blades, though. Rain-X really only works best when you're moving at 35mph or more. The faster, the better.

>Stay dry, but have fun!!! I wish I was going with you to the
>Gold Country.

Gold Country is just plain bizarre right now. I've literally driven Highway 49 at LEAST 100 times. Probably more. Every month of the year, every kind of weather you could imagine. I've seen it. Well... I thought so, anyway.

It doesn't snow here. Really, it just doesn't. Well, maybe once every couple dozen years there will be a light dusting in the higher elevation towns, but it'll be gone by noon.

There was snow in Coarsegold! That's, what... 2,500'? And I was still on Highway 41! I made it to Oakhurst, turned left onto Highway 49, and after about five miles I thought I was arriving at a ski resort in Colorado. Two feet or more lined both sides of the highway. Then it started actually snowing... Hard! For maybe 30 or 40 miles the white stuff was attacking my windshield, but Rain-X fought back valiantly. Several hours later I finally made it to Jackson, checked in, then ran Ashley out back for a potty break. THERE WAS SNOW THERE TOO! It doesn't snow here! Wow...

Now I'm wondering if I'll even be able to make it to Tahoe and Yosemite... I did notice the roads to Yosemite are open, but chains are required. I have chains, but I really, really, really hate dealing with those. I'll put them on if I absolutely have to, but if I know in advance they're required, I'll avoid the area.

One other item of note from today's long drive... I took Highway 41 all the way from Morro Bay to Oakhurst. About halfway to Fresno it merges for a while with Highway 46. When I got to the intersection where they merge I damn near shouted "Holy crap! This is where James Dean died! I recognize this intersection!!!" As I pulled into the left turn lane to merge into the 41/46 stretch, I saw a sign that read "James Dean Memorial Intersection".

I'd never been there before, but a few months ago I found a web site that had a bunch o' pictures from then and now. I'm not sure what exactly it was about that intersection that fired the neuron in my brain that brought it all back, but I knew *immediately* what I was looking at and where I was...

Thanks. I was wondering... (And I've climbed Gold Mountain -- it's near Big Bear)

There are more than a few campgrounds around that area! In fact, they JUST redid the state campground.

For me, there is a place closer to Cambria. COULD be Moro State Beach. No showers and you are RIGHT on the beach...but I love that little place! It's probably where your friend stayed with his RV.

I know where that is and have passed it more than once. Of course, now I have to explain to my kids who James Dean was....

Wow, the snow level was really low!!!

When my mom and step dad live in Fresno, I can recall snow in Oakhurst, but not Coarsegold!

It probably won't last long down where you are. Higher up, they should have the roads plowed pretty well in a day or two. Just watch out for black ice.

Now that you mention it, I think I did see two. I wasn't really looking for the campgrounds, though.

Could be. He did say it was a beach campground. I didn't ask for any more detail about it.

It got even lower than I thought. On the news last night they said the snow level got below 1,000' in some places!

>It probably won't last long down where you are.

It's already all gone. My car had about a quarter inch of ice all over it in the morning and I had to borrow an ice scraper to clear the windows. Four hours later the sun was out, the sky was clear and it was well on it's way to temps in the 80's. The snow at the lower elevations was gone by noon.

The roads are all clear now. The 88 (Carson Pass) was the only one that had a chain restriction this morning, and that's my favorite way to get to Tahoe, so I didn't go there today. I'm sure the restriction has been lifted by now, so I'll be going tomorrow. Then Yosemite on Wednesday.

When I spent the winter in Oregon, we stayed on largesh piece of property that allowed me to go to the car and start it..turn on the defrost..then go back into the house for a cup of coffee. When I came back out, the ice was off the windshield and car was nice an cozy. I DID have an ice scrapper for those times when I had to leave quicker than that...but I found that the start-the-car-and-wait method was a lot less work..and, I got the coffee too!

Once, after a really cold night, I did my method and then went into work. One of my employees was kidding with me, saying things like, "Being from California you probably used a credit card to see out your windsheild huh??"

Heh..he as amazed at my solution.

Then, there is the story (myth?) about a kid that wanted to save his Dad the trouble of scrapping his windshield so he tossed a bucket of hot water on it and it broke into a million pieces....

I did that yesterday morning, too. I fired up the car, cranked the heat and turned the dial to defrost then punched the button for the rear window defroster. A few minutes later I started scraping ice on the driver's side. By the time I made it around to the passenger side I was basically just wiping soggy slush off the window.

The skeptic in me says that's probably an urban myth, but actually I wouldn't be surprised if that really did happen somewhere, sometime. Well, I kinda doubt it would actually shatter, but it would probably have a whole mess o' cracks spider webbing all over.

I went to Tahoe today. I was surprised at how much snow there was there. Or, should I say, lack of snow... I really expected a lot more, especially after this past weekend's storms! There was more there after that rather unusual storm in October 2004!

The Highway 88 (Carson Pass) part of the drive was beautiful, as always. That's definitely the way to go if you're headed to the south end of the lake. The scenery along the way is so much better than on Highway 50 that it's worth the extra 30+ miles! It's also not as popular as the 50, so there is less traffic.

From South Lake Tahoe, I drove clockwise all of the 75(?) miles around the lake; up Highway 89, stopping in Tahoma for an early lunch at the Old Tahoe Cafe, then continuing on to Tahoe City where I picked up Highway 28. Once on the northern shore, the snow on the ground was even more sparse (the mountains above, where the ski resorts are, had plenty though). I followed the 28 over to the Nevada side, stopping several times to let Ashley run and play in what little snow there was, then picked up Highway 50, back through South Lake Tahoe (America is playing at Harrah's this weekend! Damn... Why do I have to go home?), then back down the 50 to Placerville, and the 49 to Jackson. Fun day.

The best part of the day was when I stopped at the southern vista point at Emerald Bay, Ashley's first sojourn out of the car at the lake. She hopped out, looked around at all the snow (this is where it was at it's best, too), her eyes got big and the tail started wagging, and she just started darting all over trying to check everything out all at once. Made me think of a little puppy seeing snow for the first time. She's seen, played and hiked in plenty of snow before, but it had been a while. Obviously, she'd missed it...

Tomorrow: Yosemite!

That's because you are in a "sheltered" area. Where we are, that wind keeps the frost away. In fact, since we moved up here, we have not had ANY frost on the cars!

Now if I could just convert that wind to energy....

>Yosemite!!! I love Yosemite.

You and me both. And a couple other people...

It was very uncrowded today. Just the way I like it. Apparently Yosemite got all the snow that Tahoe was missing. At one point I really wished I'd had the foresight to pack my crampons or at the very least, the snowshoes. I wanted to get a picture of Bridalveil Falls from the vista point, but the last hundred feet of the trail was sheer ice. Damn! I can't go up there in Spring because it's too misty to take a camera, and I can't get there in winter because I'd rather not break my neck right now, thankyouverymuch. Maybe next winter I'll go back with the crampons.

I went in on the 120 and had planned to exit via the 41, but when I headed up that way toward the tunnel it looked WAY too icy, so I decided to try something new and exit via Highway 140 to Mariposa. I hadn't gone that way before, so it was great to add a little variety. Nice scenery on that route, since it follows the Merced River down! I'll have to do that one again.

We had a magical moment today, but that deserves it's own message...

Re: On the road again

We're home now, but we visited Yosemite on the way.

We had a very up-close and personal encounter with a deer that was just fascinated with Ashley... We surprised a group of eight or nine near Lower Yosemite Falls. They all stopped to stare for a minute or two, then one by one they wandered off. Except for one. She was just STARING at Ashley while I fired off shot after shot. Then, when we continued on the trail, she followed us for a few hundred feet, never taking her eyes off Ashley. It was hilarious! She got within four or five feet of us and didn't even flinch when several other people came down the trail heading our way[1]. At one point an Asian family with three very young children arrived and followed us and the deer for a little while, mom snapping off several pictures with her P&S, even having her kids pose in front of the deer for a picture or two, while it stared still transfixed by Ashley (who, by the while, was completely oblivious to it the entire time). Then, a couple loud, screaming and yelling kids came running down the trail heading toward us. That broke the deer's concentration and she sauntered (not ran -- she was not timid at all) up the hill.

We continued on the trail toward the falls, around a couple bends in the trail, when I happened to glance up the hill on my right and saw the deer was still tracking us. She was up there maybe 80 or so feet away watching us as we continued on below. I tried to keep her in sight, but I lost her in the trees soon after and never saw her again.

Later, when we made our way back to the car and arrived at the trailhead, the Asian family was there resting. The mom turned to her three kids and said, "Look. There's the dog that deer liked! Remember that?" LOL

Footnote:
[1] One of the people who passed us while the deer followed was an elderly man with two very young kids in tow (I'm assuming they were his grandchildren). He pointed out Ashley, turning to the kids saying, "Look! A doggie!" He said that three or four times as we passed each other... What about the deer right next to us?!? Some people just don't open their eyes and really see what's around them.

Wouldn't that be a great address to have, though? I'd love to be able to give people that as my address... lol "Turn right on Pig Turd Alley, and it's the third house on the left." Hahahahaha

Y'know, maybe we should open up a Mailboxes Etc. kind of mail forwarding service there. I'll bet there are enough people who would want that address to make it profitable.

BTW, I *still* haven't watched all of that Deadwood DVD. It travelled with me but never made it out of the laptop case. And, when I got home, there was a Corrs concert DVD waiting in the mail for me...

It would probably work

I know in Simi there's an Easy Street. I'd love to be able to say, "I live on Easy Street."

Most of the deer in Yosemite are like that. They have no fear of man because there is no hunting. When I was a kid, I'd follow them around in the meadows up there and they would occasionally look at me and then go back to graising. I could walk right up to them. Not sure I'd want to try that with a Yosemite bear, though

I think most animals in Yosemite are fairly tame. They don't have much to fear from humans.

I'd be one of those people! In fact, it COULD be a million dollar idea..find streets with odd names like that and start a mailbox thingy!

All we need now is a few investors and a couple more good street names. I'll keep my eye out for the streets. Anyone wanna invest in the idea?

To be honest, I think Ashley's little friend was more annoyed by the kids than scared. She wasn't the only one...

I'm printing envelopes (1000+) here in the office, so while they were printing I went over and checked out the pictures. Some great shots!!

I absolutely have to do the Hwy 49 trip and revisit Yosemite too.

By the way, great shots of Ashley and I love that one of the "contented elephant seal"

Thanks! Initially my favorite from the bunch was this one (naturally):

But I've been going back again and again to this one:

I think I'm going to have that one printed... Big. It will look great framed and matted.

It's funny how hyper-critical I can be about my pictures sometimes. I was almost pissed off when I filed through the pictures after I got home. Not one keeper in the whole bunch! Or so I thought. It takes a while, but eventually I start to like one or two. Or three... Or a dozen...

If you need a tour guide for the Hwy 49 trip, just let me know. I'd love to travel it with you and point everything out.

Yep, that's a great picture. Ashley looks dog tired

A tour guide thing would be cool. But we'd have to have time to do some gold panning Heck, Janice goes off on her weekend scrapbooking retreats and a week to the national convention too. Somehow it doesn't work the same way when I want to go somewhere Well, maybe if the planets align and I still have some vacation time left over from trips to Indiana.....

I should mention that you'd better not mind having dog hair all over you, because Ashley will be riding along. When we go on a trip she somehow manages to get the car's interior looking like I have fur seat covers. When I take the car to the car wash, they spend at least 15 minutes on it just with the vacuum...

Sophie used to do the same thing...She'd also get slobber all over the windows

Ashley wipes her nose on the windows. The slobber usually goes on the dashboard, center console and doors.

Same deal then...Except Sophie would also get carsick We had one memorable trip up to Lake Arrowhead once..She was one miserable dog. We stayed up at our friend's cabin for three days and Sophie refused to poop the whole time. She had never seen snow before and she was not going to use it for a bathroom!

My old dog got sick once on a trip. Fortunately, Ashley has never had a problem with that.

I think she made it from the car to the cabin without hitting the ground!

It's funny how hyper-critical I can be about my pictures sometimes. I was almost pissed off when I filed through the pictures after I got home. Not one keeper in the whole bunch! Or so I thought. It takes a while, but eventually I start to like one or two. Or three... Or a dozen...


I know that feeling. I feel the same way sometimes. I also find some treasures sometimes that will knock my socks off.

I loved the pics Lon

I posted several of the pictures on the Canon forum with the caveat that there were no real winners in the bunch. After the responses I got from everyone, I had to go back and take another look at them to see what I was missing. LOL

>I loved the pics Lon

Glad to hear it!

LOL I remember when my dad took his little dog and moved to Iowa for a while. Its legs were about 2" long and it just sunk in the snow when they put it outside. They had to clear a piece of grass for her to use.
