Valencia - Corona, California
With poor Internet and my not feeling great I manage to get behind here. Mostly we just hang out at home or run around town a bit. We see the kids and Ezra, but unfortunately no more Maximus visits :-( . Hoping for more of that next time!

Best of all, the parts for the slide repair come in and we're able to get the rig in and out of service in one day as promised. It's the very last day, but it's still done on time!! We are so lucky that it never broke with all the times we moved it in and out since it starting making noise, and it feels great to no longer have to worry about it. Getting it done for just our deductible is nice too!
Which means we pull out of Valencia on Thursday with no plans to return before the wedding in June. Can't believe we've been here, or coming back here, since October 31!
Our two hour drive to Corona is uneventful, although it's one of my least favorite routes through the northern perimeter of Los Angeles. We do manage to time it well and have no traffic. We're set up at Glen Ivy RV Resort by mid-day where we can't get level, have 30 amp, and are given the spot next to someone else although there are several empty spaces where we'd all have more room. It's a huge park of mostly permanents. They require copies of registration and insurance for both vehicles and check-in takes 20 minutes. People are friendly, but it feels weird here. Oh well, we aren't here to hang out at the park. And the Passport America rate of $17.50 makes most everything bearable :-))))
We're here for Super Bowl weekend to see our good friends Jimmy and Maggie and celebrate Jimmy's recent retirement. Friends Donnie and Anna from Tombstone are coming on Friday too! I get almost no pics the whole time - but we did have a really great time.
Thursday evening we enjoy a quiet dinner at their house, getting caught up on the month since we saw them in the desert. The next day we go with Jimmy to pick up their 5er and meet the other two for lunch. Dinner back at the house then we head home.

Fortunately I feel a little better and make it to the Super Bowl party on Sunday. Although I can't eat any of the wonderful food, it's still a fun day visiting with people and watching most of the game. And the outcome is perfect!! Love the M&M commercial with Danny DiVito :-)

It's good to be back on the road!
