Well, we made it out of our drive and out of our road, but it was not easy and it was not "pretty!"
As Craig eased the Alfa out of it's parking place everything seemed good:
But, as he came around the curve where the evil tree had been, he got too close to its root and got a bit hung up.
Unfortunately this dented the lower edge along the bottom of the driver's side. Not too bad. But dented.
We got out of the upper drive and went down to the lower drive to turn around.
Unfortunately, Craig started the turn into the driveway a bit too soon and came very very close to the jagged stone wall:
Stop! Look out!
But after a few careful moves he was in the clear:
He straightened it out and was able to do a clean back out:
Not a lot of extra room, but we did it!
Then he was able to turn it around and we were headed up the road. I did get out once more to watch the side as we edged past a tight curve along a rocky wall, but otherwise we were quite OK.
The next 1/2 mile were a little scary. As we approached the worse of the tight, blind curves, I suggested Craig blow the horn before edging around it. That was good because there was car coming the other way.
Next we had to merge onto the freeway in rush our traffic, but that went OK.
The next 44 miles were smooth. A bit stop and go, but no problems.
We had a small problem actually finding the KOA. Passed the entrance twice! But once we found it and a couple of guys helped us park we got settled in OK.
We did have one more minor mishap. A box of Kleenex was in the way of the slide edge and bent the trim a little. I'm way too tired to be upset about it.
Taking along a precooked meal was a good idea. The white bean chili tasted pretty good!
We even got the oven lit and baked a par-baked bread from Trader Joe's!
After dinner we went for a night walk.
The only bad thing about the Moss Landing KOA so far is that the water smells like rotten eggs! Glad I brought a big bottle of water for coffee tomorrow!
So, a few dings, a few problems, but so far so good!
We did it!
