The plan for today was to see Mount Shasta in all of its beauty, on our way to Redding, CA. So, we set out at 8:40 AM and 64 degrees with overcast skies, hoping that the clouds would lift and give us that spectacular view. Unfortunately, the clouds came down instead.

... are a VIP crop!
Slight hiccup, the check engine light came on in the motorhome!! After some debate we drove 100km to the nearest Ford Dealership in Corning. They took it in straight away for a 1 hour diagnostics checkup! We had to unhook & rehookup the car so we were on our way within ...
