Thursday morning after finishing loading up we headed to Gardnerville to pick up prescriptions and then headed over to Washoe Lake State Park. We're able to stay for just $10.00 a night with Ken's senior state parks pass. This includes water, electric and a dump station if needed. Can't beat that. The sites have been redone, so most of them are pull thru's which really makes it nice.

On our way there my sister Wendy had texted that her hubby's colonoscopy didn't go as planned. He was on his way to the hospital with what appeared to be a perforated bowel. The hospital was so backed up with a line of 7 ambulances! CA for ya! Eventually they performed emergency surgery on him and he'll be in the hospital for 5 to 7 days. Needless to say he's in a lot of pain. He's got breathing issues along with all that. He's in good hands now. Hope you're feeling better soon Shawn!
WE got there around 1430 and just enjoyed the afternoon. Happy Hour and dinner. A little tv watching and then time for bed! We sat the alarm for 0430!
A great sleep was had and we were ready to get moving. Of course our idea of moving in the morning put us on the road at 0800. We had a beautiful drive down highway 88 ending up in Stockton, CA which is definitely NOT beautiful. You can't believe the homeless camps all along the sides of the freeway! I thought Sacramento was bad, but this was really truly lots of garbage dumps and tents. I was too busy looking to get pictures!
Had a nice drive down I-5 except for the trucks and the fact that everyone is such a big hurry to get somewhere! The main reasons we avoid the interstates as much as possible!

We got to John and Karen's spot just about 1630. They were outside by their 5th wheel and had gotten a fire going. So we parked the Mansion and met by the fire for Happy Hour. We enjoyed visiting for a few hours and Karen had made us all a delicious chicken enchilada dinner with mexican rice, guacamole and home made salsa, it was so yummy! Thank you Karen and John!
We called it a fairly early night and then didn't wake up until 0630 this morning! Breakfast, showers, dishes all done, so we'll see what the day brings! It's a beautiful day.

He looks good and happy don'tcha think?!💙
That's it for pictures as internet is slow. We supposedly have a "wi fi booster" in
here but I'm sure if it works anytime or with electricity. We are going into town to pick up a connecter we need here. We'll be here until Monday morning, guess we should get a map out sometime and decided how to head east!
Have a great day!
