Another Soggy Weekend and Moving Past Posts

Wow. I cannot believe this rain.  The dogs and I, along with everyone else, are getting pretty sick of it, but it could be worse.  We could be in Monroe, Louisiana. My prayers and sympathy go out to these people who have lost everything.

The good news is that our lakes are filling up, so that truly is a blessing, but boy, getting there has been rocky!  Dare I say it?  There’s actually some sunshine forecast for next week.  That definitely makes me smile.

Just a little perspective on how much rain we are getting. The photo below, on the left, was taken in September 2015.  The photo on the right (not mine) was taken last week, March 2016 of the same spot at Fowler Falls near McCloud.



Below is the Fowler Falls campground area. The photo on the right was taken last September looking DOWN. The one on the left (also not my photo) is on level ground, taken last week.  I think we can be thankful that the past two weeks have given us all this water in two to three day shots with some breaks in between, and snowpack in the lower mountains hasn’t been all that deep.


Nothing really exciting going on in the way of travel, but good weather and good times are just around the corner.  I have, between a few bouts of “I can’t take this (rain) anymore” been busy with a few things.  I needed a sleeping bag  liner (Oversized, to fit in the oversized sleeping bag. The Chiweenie Brothers do not like to be cold), something to put the dog’s tie out stakes in, and a cover for my Camco heater, so those projects were taken care of last week. Every little step, no matter how tiny  brings us even closer to our Big Adventure. No photo of the heater cover as I am not finished with it yet.

The bag liner. A queen sheet folded in half and sewn along the bottom and half way up the other side. 

Dog stake bag made from leg of an old pair of jeans. Sometimes you just need to pull up stakes and hit the road.  Fast.  No cleaning required. Just stuff and store. *Smile*


Besides these projects, I have been working on moving posts from and editing along the way.  A lot of those old posts don’t fit into our new life’s goal so they will not be brought to this site. I am still in the process of weeding out, so my apologies if something appears here, but then disappears.

Thanks for stopping by 2DogsTravel,  Shawna

  1. Thank you, Shawna. I will take the historical books you offered..see you friday if all goes well for you..Take care,,


  2. Hey Shawna, I just signed up for your blog and had just finished reading from 2010 some of your posts. I used to live in Redding, my sons were born there many moons ago, lol. Saw your post on RVSUe, been reading her blog since I got the notion to rv full time back in 2012, although I’d wanted to do this for the past 40 years too many things got in the way. However I sold my Cal home located about 60 east of Sacramento July 2015, bought my Minnie Winnie in August and have been full timing since. I look forward to your updates. Freedom looks great for the age… great find.

    Well have a great week. thanks for your cool ideas you post.


    1. Hi Carlene! Thank you so much for reading and following my blog. It’s about time for another post, but I haven’t even been able to think about the blog for a couple of months. Too darn busy re-roofing my sun room, and fixing up the inside damage caused by the massive amounts of rain we kept getting. A small problem turned into a huge problem, but we’re getting back on track. 🙂 Both my sons were born in Redding, too! Congrats on the move from sticks and bricks to RV. I can’t wait! I thought it would be last year, but it didn’t happen. Thought it would be this year, and it might happen, but am thinking next year for sure. East of Sacramento ….. Placerville? I have a cousin in Pollock Pines. Hope to meet you on the road one day!
