We left the Bowers place yesterday heading to our next stop, Eagles Nest RV Park. Our GPS tried to direct us on the shortest route when we arrived in the area, don’t believe it! Then we headed up 139 a little further and followed Lucy’s direction again, wrong! We should have driven down County Road 97 A a little farther. Ended up going through a field following the park’s owner. I was worried about it not being on a gravel road due to our weight. It all ended up just fine. One reminder, follow this link for their directions ( I confess, I didn’t do that). It’s a very nice well kept RV Park, with lots of green grass and pine trees. The owners are very nice and want to make sure you enjoy your stay. Highly recommended!
The route through US 395 to CA 139 into the Modoc National Forest was spectacular! This by far is the route to take when traveling to and from Reno. Wow!
A few words about our stay with Paulette and Daniel in God Hill, NV. We originally planned to stay one night, but ended up staying for four. The area has so many things to see and do it demanded a longer stay. The best part of this was getting to know our hosts better and of course I was in Silver Eagle heaven with 4 of them in various stages of construction. The white Eagle shown below is the one that they do some extensive traveling in with a great solar system that allows them to boondock for long periods of time. One of their trips took them to Alaska, where Paulette spent many years before they got married. They do enjoy their bus conversion! They are such gracious hosts and have invited us back anytime. I’m sure that next year we’ll end up visiting them again. Thanks for such a great visit!
We visited the train museum in Carson City the day before we left. This is a must see, add it to your bucket list. What a great collection of locomotives and cars that helped to bring the masses to Nevada. We were blessed to have a personal tour by one of the volunteers. He was very knowledgeable and shared the rich history of how train travel was so important to the many aspects of mineral rich Nevada and the growth that was allowed to happen due this form of transportation.
We are headed to Crater Lake RV Park today, where we workamped during the summer of 2012. It will be great to see old friends again. We can’t wait to get up there and the weather looks to be great!
