My heart will be up in the Alfa, so here is now just "the house."
We made it home with no problem. La Mesa had put 1/2 tank of fuel in for us to start and so we filled it up on the way home. First time for everything! No propane was needed. But it was good practice to pull into a station for the first time. I had scoped it out in advance.
The drive was smooth even if Craig would not hear my words of wisdom about 55 MPH being the right speed.
He feels he has to keep up with traffic. I feel they can pass us. Oh Well. When I'm in the driver seat, I will drive at a speed I'm comfortable with.
If you have a Class A, what speed do you try to maintain on the highway?
Backing into the upper drive was as hard if not harder than the first time. I think we have to get head phones or something so we can communicate better.
A little more road work is also needed, as in cutting out the side of that stump and a bit of the hillside.
But we are back in one piece. Still married. Still friends.
The good thing is everything seemed to work on the Alfa. We made a few mistakes, we forgot a few things, but we have made it thru our maiden voyage, and are looking forward to trips to come.
Now that we have gotten out once, I can be content to wait until the trip at Christmas. We might go on another weekend in November, but basically I'd be OK with waiting until we can go for more than a day or two. And that won't be until after Craig retires at the end of the year. But we might just go sleep up there any night!
I'll post Moss Landing pictures during the week!
