We left Granite Bay California on Monday to head north on the 65 and the 99 to get to Red Bluff and then Redding California. We had made Advance reservations for Green Acres RV park with the initial intent to only stay three days and two night. We are really excited to get to Ashland Oregon because of all the awesome outdoor things to do. The one full day and Redding according to the forecast was going to be gray and cloudy and rainy which it turned out to be.

The RV park was very easy to find and about 5 minutes outside of Redding proper, and although the park itself is very nice and we feel safe here all of the hotels next door and around are definitely not a place to wander. 

We like the RV park and it is very quiet except for the occasional train that comes by the tracks (which is very close) however we quickly tuned it out and did not mind it. We got full hookups in spot 30…

They also have a beautiful Koi pond with a waterfall areas so of course we had to go check that out…

We did a quick Google search on outdoor things to do, hiking trails, bike trails and restaurants around the Redding area. Apparently there are dozens of gorgeous bike trails and hiking trails up and down the Sacramento river which goes straight through the city. We found that Redding has the world’s largest working sundial here so we decided to go check that out because it is it is attached to a bridge and a beautiful work of art as well. The challenge would be facing the cold winds and light rain that was spread out throughout the day. We drove to the Sacramento River with the intent to go on a bike ride which did not end up happening due to the cold winds although the view was magnificent.

Just around the corner from the park here was the Sundial Bridge so we decided to go exploring…

Toddler for perspective…

We found out that once you walk across the glass bottom Bridge you can walk underneath it and look up which is really cool …

here is Scott for perspective…

We also saw a gaggle of geese and their goslings..

Then today which was supposed to be the day to head up to Ashland we had everything packed and ready to go and then Scott lifted the hydraulic jacks and went to turn on the vehicle and discovered that one of the gauges was not working. Yippee!! :/  We called numerous places including Freightliner and Winnebago customer service and Scott did a few tests to see what the issue was. We are pretty certain that it is just the gauge which is not working and there are no air pressure issues (which would be a huge cost) so if the gauge is that’s no big deal …we just need to run to NAPA Auto Parts and get a new gauge… Going soon..A little bummed to bump our trip back a day as we LOVE LOVE LOVE Ashland but we should arrive tomorrow nonetheless.. you will see below the REAR AIR PRESSURE IS AT ZERO!!

Our first electrical issue oh boy! Ah the adventures of RV life!!
