Church, Checkup and More Research


First, I want to thank MargieAnne For her kind comment.  I just read your blog and will have to go back to read more.

Sunday I picked up Sam and Gilbert for church.  Gilbert is such a sweetie.  He knows that I usually have treats in the car or in my pocket, so he checks me out.  He is well behaved and only gets one if mom says it’s okay.  I will usually pick them up when Kyle isn’t able to, or when we have choir practice.


After church I went home to pick up Angel.  It was so nice out  (in the 70s)  that I didn’t want to stay home and do stuff that I should be doing, so I went to feed the car and took a ride out to Village RV (part of Camping World) to see what they had.  I checked out a few Class As and of course some some 5vers too.  Oh how I wish that it was time to begin the  process of creating the short list.  At least I am sure of what I am looking for in an RV.  On the way home I checked out Twilight RV Park to see if there were any openings and how much their monthly rates were.  I stopped  and spoke to a resident.  He has been there for a month or so with his wife and son who they home school.  He likes it and says it is quiet.  (with everything it’s a bit over $600.00)   Then I stopped at Folsom Lake RV to check out what they had.  One of the sales reps  showed me several 5vers even though they were having a Super Bowl party.  Of course the ones that I like are out of reach for me, but who knows, I may find a used one with all the bells and whistles, all in the budget.  I finally went home when sun started to set and it was getting cooler.


Today I took off the whole day because I had my annual check up for my surgery. I was there for less than an hour and took the rest of the day for more research.  Angel and I checked out the KOA in West Sacramento and spoke to a couple of people there.  One was an employee.  He started as a workamper and said that they do have openings occasionally for 20 hours a week.  The other person was a woman who has been there since June.  Her husband works for PG&E and gets transferred often.  She likes it there too.  I checked out another park on the way home, Bamboo RV/Mobile Home Park. (everything included for $440.00)  I wasn’t impressed. You get what you pay for.  I checked out one more closer to home,  I talked to a resident there who has been RVing full time for several years, but had to get off the road for now because he couldn’t sublet his mobile home or sell it.  I guess we all have to do whatever we have to do. 


I’m home now and have been catching up on what’s going on out in Blogland.  Hopefully you have all had a good weekend and are keeping warm and dry.  Take care.


And thanks for visiting

  1. Hi Susan, Sounds as though you are having fun with the research that you're doing. We are thinking of staying in our RV longer-term so John is starting to think about a motorhome. We now have a 5th wheel. Have fun! Take care...
