Oh, I love to be on vacation and boy howdy do I wish I could go back!
We got home from our little excursion to Plymouth, CA on Tuesday. Before I tell ya what we came home to I’ll show ya just how much fun we had.
As we traveled across I-80 I had to snap a photo of the desert and my mountains…Just in case I got a little home sick
We stayed the night in Reno/Sparks, NV at a little truck stop and casino, and I had the worst night of sleep possible. You can’t believe all the noise at a truck stop in the middle of the night. The next morning, in a mad rush to beat the weather we headed over Donner’s to California, this is the weather we were trying so hard to avoid, seeings that no one had tire chains that were mandatory…oops
Lucky for us, we snuck threw and made it ok to Sacramento. A
As we made our way to a fellow truck club members shop, we saw that crazy little car in the post just below this one…who knew!
We had a great lunch and spent a little time in town, browsing and seeing the sights.
Then we made our way to Plymouth, CA. It was such a beautiful drive…
We hit the truck show and that is where I left the big guy with all his friends, I don’t think he even missed me he had so much bull shitting to do.
I had to escape and check out the wine tasting…
We spent all day Saturday driving around county visiting about 20 different tasting rooms at the vineyards. Good thing that I took a few photos, because by the end of the day, I really wouldn’t have remembered how beautiful it was.
And do you know how sad I was to hear that I can’t bring wine back across the state line? umm…legally. 😉
We had to set out and leave on Sunday, but we took I-50 back around to Nevada and took in some great views around Lake Tahoe. I wish I could have had a little more time to take photos there, but we did get a great shot at the summit with most of the gang.
And that is about where all the fun ended, at least as far as the photos go.
When we got home and started to unpack, we thought that the house smelt a little funny…I thought it was just stuffy and opened some windows. But when I went to the basement to start a load of laundry we realized that while we had been out, we had got flooded.
The sewer had backed up and came in threw a floor drain and got shit water everywhere in the basement.
The big guy has had to take 2 more days off of work to get things cleaned and get new carpet ordered etc. I have yet to start any type of laundry and we are wore out! I can’t believe the damage that standing water can do. All of my scrapbooks & genealogy and my craft room got the worst of it. The TV room, luckily, only needs the carpet replaced. But it’s quite a lot of work. I’m just so glad that it was nothing worse.
