THE JOURNEY - AUGUST 2018

 


Here we are halfway through the summer and Karen and I are at our home base in the Okanagan. We have been busy with some consulting and web development but did take some time out to do a trip or two.

Our first trip was in the spring and we went to Redding, California. Our second trip was to Revelstoke BC and the third was to Golden BC. I will give some details on the other trips in future newsletters.

We would like to thank our new sponsors and supporters ......SEE WHO THEY ARE
We have tried to get supporters that will fit in with our RV lifestyle and we hope you find them helpful in your travels.

We want to wish all our friends and the RV'ers from British Columbia a Happy BC Day.

We are pleased to welcome Law Depot as a supporter and we all need legal documents from time to time. Whether it is a will, a bill of sale or one of many more the Law Depot can help.

While in Redding we visited the Sundial Bridge, Shasta Dam and of course we could not pass up the Win River Casino.




The Sundial Bridge is a cantilever spar cable-stayed bridge for bicycles and pedestrians that spans the Sacramento River in Redding, California, United States and forms a large sundial. It was designed by Santiago Calatrava and completed in 2004 at a cost of US$23,500,000. The bridge has become iconic for Redding

Shasta Dam




Shasta Dam (called Kennett Dam before its construction) is a concrete arch-gravity dam across the Sacramento River in Northern California in the United States. At 602 feet (183 m) high, it is the eighth-tallest dam in the United States.

Tip Of The Month

 Money saving tips on the RV Highway

Stay longer in campgrounds with low rates. Stay a week or by the month for an even better rate.

Drive 55 for better gas mileage.

Use bcgasprices.com for cheapest service stations.

Avoid jack-rabbit starts and quick stops. 

Keep tires properly inflated. 

Lighten your load as extra weight will cost you in mileage.

Avoid head winds. If you have the time, wait out if you are going to drive all day into a strong wind.

Avoid ATM fees by getting cash with store purchases.

Install CFL or LED interior lights

Boondock more often.Casino parking lots, Walmarts and many other overnight free spots if you are just traveling.

Install a solar system for free power.

Maintain your RV. It is much less expensive to maintain than to repair.

Eat out less. Prepare your own meals.

Maintain your batteries right so they last longer.

Buy from farmers markets, roadside farm stands, U-Pick farms and orchards.They have fresher goods for less.

Volunteer or become a camp host, which usually comes with a free campsite.

Many RV Parks and campgrounds hire seasonal help that come with a free site plus usually a wage
