My (Scott, aka ScottyBloggins) first blog! While the GF is working and our daughter is still sleeping I figure I’d take a minute and provide a second voice to our blog! We arrived at the Yosemite RV Park in Coarsegold, CA yesterday. The drive from Bakersfield to hear was actually quite beautiful, the agricultural fields green as can be imagined. We drove through Fresno without stopping and once passed the city and working or way up to the foothills were treated with gorgeous grassy rolling hills spotted with well fed happy cows and large, picturesque boulders. The drive was otherwise uneventful except for the emergency pit-stop at the Flying-J as I’ve been sick the last couple days which led to a lot of grunting and moaning on my end not knowing if I would make it in time and a lot of laughing on Tiffany’s end. The relief was immense! I also got to use the air horn (and brakes) for some dimwitted driver who despite being a full grown adult and who’s probably been driving for at least 2 decades still hasn’t learned how to merge onto the 99 in his hometown that he probably hasn’t left except to go to the oarchard or the next closest town with a population of 1,500. He finally sped up to avoid collision with me and my 60 foot MH and toad, weighing in at a feathery 30,000 pounds and despite me having used the horn he took the time to roll down his window and give me a pleasant wave.
The park we are staying at is nice. It is undergoing some improvements and has a renovated gift shop/lobby area, pool, and playground. We spent about 3 hours on the playground in the evening yesterday with our daughter which was a lot of fun. This is a very hilly park with lots of paths and roads to walk along. Due to a combination of the recent rain and the parks renovations a lot of spots are unoccupied, which we kind of prefer. This place must be a zoo in the summer! We lucked out and only have one direct neighbor on the driver side of our rig which is fine.
We haven’t left the RV park yet to explore the surrounding areas yet. It takes a bit of energy to move locations with all the setup and tear down involved although things are starting to get easier and Tiffany and I are starting to develop our routines. The driving can be a bit tiring as well. During the regular rat race I’ve left I was very used to driving one handed or with the use of one of my knees to accommodate incoming phone calls or to take a bite of my delicious BoSa Donuts croissant sandwiches, but our home on wheels with our car in tow requires constant attention and the use of both hands to steady the ever moving steering wheel. Today we are going to check out the nearby town of Oakhurst as we make our way to and from Bass Lake! Can’t wait to explore the area!
