Halloween on the Road

Sacramento, California:  Happy Halloween! We hope you had a lot of treats and no tricks. Our day was another boring drive south on I-5. We stopped for the night at Cal-Expo RV Park, set up camp and headed directly east in the Jeep to Roseville. Dave wanted to do a little shopping (that is a sentence you will very very very very rarely read on this website) and we had plans to meet family for dinner.

The shopping mall in Roseville (very fancy) was filled with kids trick or treating with their parents in tow. Every store had a costumed employee handing out goodies to kids. We saw so many fun costumes and were really missing Leo and Lucy. Lisa sent a few cute photos of our adorable grandchildren as they headed out to school for parties and parades. Today, Leo was a hyena. Lucy was a butterfly fairy. Obviously.

We can't wait to see Leo and Lucy again. Soon!

My costume? Wicked Witch of the RV World? Nah, I just wore the wonderful Halloween scarf I received for my birthday in 2002. Every year, I give it a little exercise. Selfie!

After Dave's shopping spree - one pair of jeans - we met Brother Steve, Gina, Meghan and Jamie for dinner at Zocalo in Roseville. We had such wonderful Mexican meals here in June, we were happy to eat here again. I even ordered the exact same meal - Chicken Mole with their famous cilantro rice.

Yes, that is a pitcher of margaritas. Don't judge.

Gina and Steve brought us a haul o'veggies and fruits from their massive garden and orchard.

Salad greens, poblano chiles, roma tomatoes, lemons and Key limes. Nice! Thank you very much.

Until my next update, I remain, your treated correspondent.

RV Park: Cal-Expo RV Park - Cal-Expo is on the California State Fairgrounds and is constantly busy due to the various events scheduled at the fairgrounds. Always make a reservation! Campers have two choices - paved campsites in a tilted parking lot or flat campsites in a gravel lot. Big Rigs should always choose the gravel lot. (Our airbags can never get us level in the paved area.) 30/50 amp full-service, pull-through and back-in sites. Friendly staff. Laundry and bathhouse. No pool. No spa. On the American River with miles of bike/walking paths. Shops (a huge mall - NORDSTROM!), restaurants and great grocers very close. We paid $40 for the night.
