|Love that hat|
Monday, the 17th, we said goodbye, see ya later to Jojoba and headed to Fontana to have them fix a number of items in need of repair. We thought it would be done early Tuesday and they did spent about 10 hours of labor time. However, everything was not done until Thursday morning. They are a really busy place as they are known for great work. Not the most fun place to stay and not much to do around there but Thursday came and we were finally on our way north. YEAH!!!
We have been up and down HWY 395 many times, especially in our skiing days when the kids were young.We went skiing just about every year for awhile for long weekends and sometimes a while week of skiing. We took our kids and sometimes went with our friends Dave and Sylvia and their kids. Dave and Sylvia were the ones who got us into skiing and we are so glad they did. Anyway we have driven through Lone Pine but never stayed in that area even when we went to Mammoth for summer trips. We happen to read about it in Wheelin It's blog and a few other blogs and so decided to check it out. We got to Tuttle Creek, a BLM campground, which is just a few miles outside of the town. We got a nice spot with a creek in back of the motorhome, and beautiful views of the mountains, including Mt Whitney. No hook ups but water and dump available for $5 charge. No problem as we are only paying $2.50 a day with our national pass.
