Friday: (10/16) We spotted a Black Bear Diner in Willows and stopped for breakfast. Another stop at a thrift store and Best Buy in Woodlands. We tried one final time stopping at a Best Buy store in Tracy looking for Dawns phone, no luck again. Dinner at the Golden Corral restaurant there. We came in to Dave’s ranch from Patterson off I5. The road is nicer than the approach from Livermore or over Mt Hamilton from San Jose. The RV had some power loss problems on the way in. Something else to have fixed.

Saturday: (10/17) Lou made omelets with home fried potatoes for breakfast. The day was spent relaxing, chatting, hiking and dining. There were about 25 of Dave’s friends here (biking, hiking and Lion’s Club).

We had a pot luck lunch after a hike led by Dave around the ranch. Steve, one of the attendees gave an RC air show on the landing strip. An evening campfire capped the evening.

Sunday: (10/18) French toast and ham for breakfast. Everyone was busy getting ready to leave. I readied the RV with the major project being washing the windshield. I took a walk on a new trail I found. We departed about 1230 heading out through Livermore abd across the San Mateo bridge to home. Time to relax after our road trip. Leftovers for dinner.
