Anderson, CA

The drive over the mountain range between OR and CA was uneventful. There was a little snow on the side of the road and it drizzled rain all the way. One stop for a Denny's Grand Slam breakfast (4 eggs, hash browns and toast - $6.49) and gas ($3.69/gal) and we pulled into the Walmart in Anderson at four-ish. I walked over to the oil change place and they told me to bring both vehicles in right away. I asked them if they honored Walmart Canada's free tire rotation and they did. Oil, lube and tire rotation (free) on the Honda was $35 and oil (synthetic) and lube on the motorhome was $62. Tomorrow morning we will call Les Schwab Tires to get that dealt with. We may be here most of the day tomorrow.

Oh yes, on the way here we made our annual stop at All Star Liquors on I-5 just on the CA side of the State Line to pick up a few happy hour bargains. My Canadian friends will appreciate the prices.

Cutty Sark Scotch - $14 for 1.75 litre
Russian Standard Vodka - $15 for 1.75 Litre
Canadian Club - $15 for 1.75 litre
Bacardi Gold (Puerto Rican)- $18 for 1.75 litre
Glenmorangie Lasanta Single Malt sherry cask extra mature 12 year old - $37
Drambuie Black Lable - $20 for 750 ml
Glayva - $30 for 750 ml

We left $320 there but are stocked for the winter! Except for beer. And I might pick up another bottle of Single Malt in Corning, CA. at the liquor store across from the Olive Pit.

Needless to say, we stocked up! They did not have a great selection of single malt. Oh yes, Walmart had their house "Oak Leaf" Merlot (Napa Valley) rolled back to $1.97


  1. OMG!!!! Great you think I can talk you into some deliveries?

    1. Sorry Contessa, it is about 100 mikes behind us. We are back to regular CA prices.

  2. Sounds like you guys are off to a good start. Rig in good condition, bar stocked, and a great breakfast to start off with. Be safe and keep going. Hmmm, we go to pick up the rv in McAllen next week, we may have to stop at Denny's for a grand slam!

  3. Ahhhh....Hilt, CA....I lived just a few miles south of there in Hornbrook for several years...the whole area is in a terrible recession with the loss of logging as an income stream, but I loved living there when I taught school in Horse Creek in the 1970's. Kathe
