San Diego to Lockwood, Ca.

Load it up!  From the top left: Tent and campstove in the cardboard box, blue folding plastic picnic table, red sleeping bag, blue bag of blankets and pillow, Aerobed, suitcase of clothes, laptop computer, blue shower bag, two boxes of food, red bag of eating utensils, white cooler.

And it all fits nicely!  It took 3 days to get it all arranged, and 3 minutes to put it all into the back of the Mounty!

First stop: Fort Tejon, at the top of the Grapevine, I-5, north of Los Angeles.  It was a bit warm...I have a shine!

Going along I-5, I saw a huge grandstand, and stopped to take a pic of Kern County Raceway.  I challenged all the race cars to a race with the Mounty, and nobody accepted.  They musta been scared!

Sunset, Camp Roberts, north of Paso Robles, Ca.  I'm going to my brother's house in Lockwood, CA.
