Due to medical reasons – and the fact that Premera no longer offered the nationwide insurance plan in our “home” zip code, we needed to get back to Washington state. California was having record precipitation, and the drive was not very comfortable or entertaining – especially since we did the same drive and stayed at the same places during our initial shakedown trip to Disneyland. We had to carefully time our trip through the passes of northern California and southern Oregon to avoid the snow as we did not have our snow-chains with us.

This is my least favorite part of full-time RVing – having to push through a location as quickly as possible.
