Death Valley and then Bishop, CA

We left the Space Station Campground in Beatty, NV and decided to go through Death Valley NP and head back to CA on highway 395..we have always loved that highway!  So we drove a whole 40 miles and landed at the Furnace Creek Campground in the park!  The sites are huge and very improved.  They had sites with water and sewer for $18.00 a night, they will have electricity with them once that's approved by the government, but then the prices will rise too.  So we enjoyed being there, we rode our bikes over to another campground and had a nice chat with a fulltimer who's been on the road for 13 years.  She was from Texas and just a lovely lady.  We rode up to the next campground and then turned around and back to camp.  This time of year is wonderful to be in Death Valley...temps high 60's and nothing but sun!  Read my book awhile and just enjoyed the afternoon..had some leftover tacos for dinner and had a nice evening.  

Got up and knew we probably had about 160 miles today to get to Bishop.  We took our time and had a really nice drive out of the park.  Got to Bishop about 1300, signed into our site and enjoyed our lunch in the camper.  After lunch went across the street to Von's market and spent a little $$ for groceries and diesel...Diesel is definitely cheaper in the other states as Ken paid $4.05...and $3.69 in Beatty, NV...Welcome back to CA!  

Tomorrow is about 200 miles to Reno, and we should be at the Grand Sierra Resort for the night...probably got 3 loads of laundry to do so I know what my afternoon will be..oh well.  After that we'll head to Ca for a few days, but back in Winnemucca for a few for dr appts on Thursday..

Think we might be heading for Oregon after that for a bit..

Happy Birthday to our Grandson Mason, who turned 8 today!!!!! 
Happy Birthday to our nephew Dusty tomorrow!!! Love u guys
