The tour turned inland today, into the highlands east of San Diego.  First stop at the first mission in CA,,,,,


Then off to a nature preserve, and then to Lakeside, site of first automobile racetrack in the USA way back in 1906. It was a dirt oval around the lake.  Oval is gone, but the lake is still there.  Nice park and good place for a little generator maintenance, (dirty commutator).   tn_DSC07210 And then more climbing up into the eastern mountains to the Viejas Casino for lunch and trying our luck.   Ohhhh, too bad.   But you must remember, they are in the business of taking your money, not giving you theirs. One exception, Pat Bratt made $15!!tn_DSC07214

Good lord, somebody mentioned that we have been touring for 4 days and haven’t found ice cream yet.   This was immediately rectified….tn_DSC07220 Days total miles was 71,  and everybody still running just fine.  Those T’s are tough, we did have a killer long low band hill today, but they all came through.   Tonight we had dinner at the 94th Aero Squadron.  Do we look a little stuffed in this picture???/tn_DSC07224 And when we got back to the hotel after dinner, we nearly lost Maria to the Attack of the Giant Spiders!!!!! He is back and nested on the Jorgensen trailer.tn_DSC07229 Only one day left, goodnite all……

Spiders, snakes, and a variety of themed outfits... SCVMTF club at its finest! Bet the other clubs think you are crazy, but then that would make them right, huh?!

Still following you every day even though some of us still have to do it from my desk at work....

Love the daily posting,
Noreen (since Troed tells me you have not figured out I am the "anonymous" who is giving you a bad time)

So glad you are all having fun and the t's are having a great time too. Keep the spiders in San Diego! That was one big whopper! Still driving around corn fields, only in Missouri and heading to Kansas and Nebraska today.
Safe travels home.
