Santa Paula airport hosts a “Must See” antique airplane show first Sunday every month.
Dale was repeatedly National Aerobatic Champion in the 1960’s, and gave us a personal tour of his excellent collection of antique radios and TV’s.
Paul, designer of the Zyborg motorcycle, has a great “man cave” of a hanger. Reg has posters of racing sidecars in Europe, and is a big Steve McQueen fan.
Of course all the antique airplanes in various stages of reconstruction were fun to look at.
At REI, Christene deciphers hieroglyphics on my T shirt from Egypt. Turns out it spells… Egypt! Oh the little things we have fun with, eh?
Plenty of margaritas and guacamole at Frank and Debbie’s! We all enjoy drinking a few beers, for variety, with Steve and his wife Debbie, who run the avocado orchard.
Sherry and I enjoy bike rides up Wheeler Canyon and around Santa Paula. The weather is typically marine layer in the morning until 10:00, then clears up and is in the low 70’s rest of the day. It’s tough living in such a harsh environment… <grin>
Toured the Channel Island Parks visitor center. The Channel Islands have quite the history in this area. Boat rides are available to tour the islands themselves, but we declined. Frank helps us quite a bit fixing up our trailer.
Geocaching/hiking with Debbie in Point Mugu State Park. Walked more than 8 miles, and found about a dozen geocaches. The area had been severely burned in recent months, so many of the geocaches were melted. Great time! This was the first time geocaching for both Sherry and me.
Continue researching our path to travel. The US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) have hundreds of campgrounds across the US, at very reasonable cost. In California, most USACE sites are in the Sierra Nevadas, and typically next to water. Often the campgrounds provide water and toilets, but no electric. That’s ok because next week we install solar panels onto our trailer. Woo Hoo!
