California

We stopped at the All Star Liquor Store on the CA side of the CA/OR border and stocked up with enough for most of the winter. The price difference between California and British Columbia is shocking to say the least. I even found a bottle of Glenfiddich Solara for $40, better than half price.

We got the oil changed in the motorhome at the Anderson, CA Walmart, one of the few with a motorhome bay. However, they refused to put synthetic oil in a motorhome. Stupid! "The computer will not give me that option and I cannot over-ride it." I offered to pay the difference in oil cost in cash but no, they would not do that. I had to take their default brand of Penzoil or nothing. I took the default. The price was right anyway, $50.

We were up really early for us anyway, at around 6:00 AM so we starting nodding off on the highway at around 3:00. This was fine for Norma to nod off but not so much for me as I was driving. We stopped for propane, gas and a dump for the motorhome at a Love's Travel Center and then pulled into a Walmart at Stockton, CA.

It is much warmer today, we are getting south!

  2. Hmmm - surprised that it was better to buy the liquor in CA than OR. Interesting that you use synthetic in the motorhome. We were using the conventional but Derek tried the synthetic over the summer. When we were at Jon's Auto they did our oils change but put it back to conventional. Nice to feel the warmer air! Interested to see where you are headed first.

  4. Nice to you warmed and liquored up, in Cali you can afford to be an alcoholic.
    We are in a deep freeze here in Langley, BC.
