4/26/16 (Tuesday) in Klamath, CA (Golden Bear RV Resort-PPA)
Yesterday I got ambitious and after cleaning house I cleaned all our windows and screens, including on the outside (via a ladder). What a difference-such a clear view now.
John timed everything well this morning. At 9 we started pulling in the slides, jacks up, and unhooked from utilities. Then our friendly campground manager talked awhile, showing us photos of his rooms built inside a redwood stump (near our site, available for rent). It is beautiful.
Then we trundled over to the dump site, got rid of our gray water and drove separately to the Renner fuel station in Scotia. They have the cheapest fuel around and are big rig friendly. After fueling both RV and car we hooked up the car and were off by 10! Just what we were aiming for, since this was a short trip, all on US 101N. It was 4 lane, with stoplights at Eureka…. More lovely scenery. North of Eureka, nearing the Redwood National Park the road became 2 lane with passing lanes, then to 4 lanes after that Park.
A simple left turn off US 101 got us right into Golden Bear RV Resort. It’s completely open, so TV was good, as well as cell phone reception which was okay. $150 for a week, much better than the $206/week at Stafford, plus here we have strong 50 amp power, water and sewer. Not to mention a great view of the Klamath River through our really clean windows. We’ve seen birds, but apparently harbor seals hang out here, so we’re eager to see them too.
Lots of empty spaces now because it’s low season (they’re closed in the winter, open April 1st). After July 4th it’s crazy full. August is already booked. People come to fish salmon then. So I got busy washing those 2 weeks of clothes and making lasagna for supper. Such a joy, to have 50 amp power (strong to boot) and the sewer hookup! Tomorrow will be raining all day, so we’ll take it easy and plan our explorations.
