California with the Kids

Debbie had a 2-week break between summer and fall semesters and so planned on driving to California to visit her dad and her friends. I decided to drive with her. We took her car since it gets 3X the gas mileage of my RV.

Mark also decided to fly down from Seattle for a week, so both my kids were in California.

Brion learned of a museum near John Wayne airport that had a special exhibit of 1930's era Packards along with its airplanes, etc., so we checked it out. The Lyon Air Museum is a small place, but was packed with interesting exhibits, videos and memorabilia. My favorite of the cars was this 1934 Packard Runabout. Wouldn't it be cool if I could tow that behind my rig?

They have some pretty big airplanes in there including a B-24, a B-17 and this DC-3.

Overall, a great place to spend a couple hours.

Sally had some conferences for work in San Diego and she and Ted came up for a day. It's been a great time for family visits.

And now I'm anxious to get my RV out of storage and back on the road.

My prayers are with you and your family on this part of life that we all have to face one day.We never expect it to be a child of ours,because we all expect to be gone before any of this happends.This is what makes life questionable. I know you will have mark in all your thoughts as you continue your journey,and im sure mark is with you every single day. You may not hear him...but trust me ..he hears you. Please be strong as i know you are..He was a wonderful man as i read all the comments about him. This world as it is now could not handle his talents. He was far beyond what anyone could come close to being...He was a genius.. If you need here
