Well the van is at Agile Offroad. The trip down was uneventful,
. It had been dumping snow in the Syskyou mountains all last week and chains were required to travel that section of I5. The one clear and dry day was the same day I left for Agile, Friday. Roads were clear and dry.
Spent the Friday night at a Loveís truck stop in Corning. Was there instead of a campground due the CG being sunrise to sunset only. The saving grace to Loveís was that the parking lot was level and the Dennyís restaurant had good cheese cake. It was also pretty quiet for a truck stop.
Saturday night was spent at Hungry Valley SVRA at Lane Ranch just north of Castaic. Nice campground that became even nicer once the quads and motorcycles folks went home. No one else was camping that night. It was clear and cold.
The Sunday morning drive through Los Angles went smoothly. Traffic was light all the way down to El Cajon. The hardest part for me was making sure I was in my lane. The lanes seemed to meander sideways across the concrete as you drove along. It took more driving awareness than I am use to.
Had dinner with a friend Sunday night on the waterfront in San Diego. The food was excellent plus it was nice to catch up which what has been going on in our lives. Got back to my hotel and earned that when staying at a Motel 6 to request a top floor room. I did not and could hear the people above me walking around and having a 2X good time before they went to sleep.
Got to Agile around 9:30 Monday. Talked to Jesus and John about the conversion. Paid them half the cost. Then John took me to the airport in a van they had just completed but not dialed in yet. It rode smooth and seemed to handle very well. The next time I will see my van will be April 16th. Am looking forward to getting it back and heading to Arizona, Mexico, and Texas before heading home.
