Pomona to Buellton, CA. 4-13-2007

We didn’t rush to get up as we were in Pomona, CA.  No sense getting up early and get into the LA freeway rush hour.  We got on the road about 10 AM.  The wind was still blowing but not gusts of wind.  The lanes of the freeway looked just like Dallas or Houston freeway lanes, narrow.  They are narrow because they had 4 lanes once upon a time and changed them to 5 lanes without using any more land.  Even though Rick is used to driving our rig through Dallas we know which lane to be in to change freeways.  In LA we had to really pay attention to the signs plus pay attention to all the traffic and the wind. 

We drove down the San Bernardino, Ventura Freeway and the Pacific Coast Freeway.  We saw the Pacific Ocean.  We didn’t take a picture because our eyes were glued to the road.  Once we got above Santa Barbara the traffic eased up.  We went down some 6% and 7% grades.  We know what that means (straight down!!!!) and now we look to see the signs for how many miles we will be driving that grade.  We are relieved when we see only 1 or 2 miles rather than 12 miles.

We arrived in Buellton around 2:30 PM.  We came here to attend a Montana (the make of our 5th wheel) Rally.  2/3rds of the people attending the rally were already in the RV park.  They were all standing around just watching all the Montanas drive in and park.

It is a very impressive sight to see 35 5th wheels parked together that look almost alike.  There were rows of them.  See if you can locate us.



Here we are—-


This rally is just a social get together of Montana owners and a chance to exchange information, modifications and ideas about Montanas.  There is a Montana forum on the internet so it is nice to put faces to some of the writers of the forum.

    Tinka, This is your mother. I have been looking at your pictures. Hope you are having a good time. The picture of the farm did not make me homesick for farming.
    It’s been a long time since I was on a farm.
    I am at Jenelle’s having Sunday lunch.

    The strangest thing–I had never heard of Buellton until you mentioned that you were going there–but today in the comics one of the comics we get called DRABBLE made mention of Buellton…I now can’t find it to tell you what it said, but I think it was a disparaging comment–as though that would be the last place you would want to be!! More on this later if I find the comic.
