Flying Flags Update

Flying Flags RV Park in Buellton has had a great amount of changes carried out.

Flying Flags RV park

We stayed at the Flying Flags RV park last week and had such a great time.  There have been so many changes there since we were there last. Dan Baumann who is the Manager has done a great job.  Well done Dan.  Dan by the way is now the deputy Mayor of Buellton.  Good job xx

The staff at the desk are the first people to greet you and their customer service along with free cookies and a great shop carrying some fabulous wine for sale could not be better.

Thank you ladies for making our stay a pleasant one.

New Kitchen

They have a brand new kitchen and they cooked some great breakfast for us.  They have a whole menu there and also on the evening we ordered a nice glass of wine too.  Wow! so fabulous.  The chef Matt is a genius cook and we really enjoyed the breakfast he made for us.

New Camp for upmarket tents

When we were here last they had new really upmarket tents that had been put up with luxury living inside.  We only saw one and now they have a whole village of them for rent and to stay in.  Such a fabulous idea and a great place to stay.  I spoke to a lady who had stayed there for the weekend and was really upset at leaving and going home.

This is what she had to say

Upmarket cottages for rent

Not only was the accommodation to stay in top-notch but the bathrooms and utilities were the best I have ever seen anywhere.

The swimming pool and jaccuzzi was just amazing and they are even now building another bigger swimming pool on the field.

Adding to the fact that the kids and adults can have a swim there were other added amenities for amusement as A fabulous bowling pitch for avid players of Bocce Ball.  Also great new bar has been incorporated out on the field right next to the Bocce Ball pitch along with a stage for evening entertainment at weekends.  We were lucky enough to have a great night listening to a fabulous band and have a nice pint to boot.  Great friends we had not seen in a long time were with us as well.  Just fabulous to see Darlene Bayer, Dan Baumann and Cathy Vreeland.  Thanks for a great night.

On our second night there we grabbed a glass of wine and sat around the fire by the reception area and listened to a guy playing guitar who was from Belgium.  You meet so many people when you are camping.  We had yet another great night.

We had such a great weekend at Flying Flags that we will definitely be back again soon and just cannot wait.  See you all again soon.

 

Weekend in El Capitan

We just had a great Weekend in El Capitan, CA

Weekend

It was the first time in our RV for a vacation away since we had the flood, it was just like putting on a comfy pair of shoes.  We really missed our RV and miss the lifestyle so much.  We talked to more people in that weekend than we had done living in the apartment for a month.  We just love the lifestyle of living in an RV and I don’t think it will be long before we are back in it full-time again.

Living in an apartment is nice and our apartment could not be better as it is very exclusive and high-tech.  The problem is that it is a lonely existence.  No one talks to each other, we can’t just sit outside the home and talk to passers-by and just really miss our friends that we made along our travels, especially friends made in Buellton, Lake Elsinore and Half Moon Bay.  Don’t be surprised it we end up back in our RV full-time again.

Oceanmesa Campground

Oceanmesa Campground is a great place for a mini vacation away and was where we stayed and the reason that we stayed there was that the RV had to be picked up from the Camping world in Valencia after having new carpet put in in the bedroom and the side panel fixed.  Peter picked it up took it to Oceanmesa, then had to travel to Oxnard to still go to work. He then picked me up at 11pm and we drove there which was only about an hour away.  We wanted to go that night so that we woke up in the RV and then had the whole weekend there.

It was a great campground, easy to drive into the pull through spot and easy to drive out.  They had a pool and it was a bit of a walk but walking distance to El Capitan beach.  The other beach close by was a 5 minute drive which was Refugio Beach.

Refugio Beach is my favourite beach and we have been there many times before.

Weird

It was weird being in the RV without all my things around me and it really felt like we were camping.  When we lived in it full-time it just felt like a home.  This time the extra carpets i had on the floor were gone and all my pictures and things that made it look like home.  I really missed that when we were there.  At the weekend we had to really look and see what we had there and perhaps had overlooked when we moved out.  We really tried to make sure that all the things we needed for a weekend were in the RV and other things at home.  I think we nailed it as we did not really see there was anything we had forgotten.

Weekend

Bare RV

vacation

Just look how bare it looks

Vunerable

I had forgotten though how vunerable at times you can feel in an RV,  On the Sunday night we were in bed and the wind pick up to extreme mph.  I could not sleep and at one point felt very scared. It was that windy I thought we were going to tip over. Peter was telling me that no way could it tip over.  We were right on top of the hill and there was nothing between us and the sea so we were getting it full blast.  I can tell you that in the 4 years we have stayed in the RV I have never felt so scared.

It doesn’t put me off though , in the morning we were outside having our breakfast, listening to the birds chirping and waving to passers by walking their dogs.

We love Camping xx

Flood in the RV – now in a Hotel

Can’t believe we have flood in our our RV.  We have had to move out of our RV temporarily due to a flood.

RV Flood

We have not been in our Rv now for a couple of weeks and we are really missing it.  We are staying in a hotel and after being in here for a few weeks I am now sick with a bad head cold which I can say I don’t think i was ever sick when I was in my RV with all the fresh air we got living that way.

We have had a massive flood in our RV.  Let me explain to you haow it happened so that future RV are not flooded this way.

In the shower we had a shower holder which had smart suckers that apparently work really well.   I guess they actually do not.

This baddy caused the flood

Flood

While I was out the shower caddy fell down and turned the tap on in the shower and hours later when I came home there was a water fall coming out of the RV on both sides.

We spent hours trying to clean up the water with the help of John our great neighbour.  It got dark really quick and we didn’t see till in the morning all the water that was still coming out from underneath the unit.  Peter and John unscrewed underneath to let all the water out and it went over Peter and he got soaked.  After letting it dry John screwed it all back up for us bless him we will be forever grateful.

We realized then that we would have to take the RV in for repair to access the damage.  The RV shop has said we need all new carpets and that one point by the door was really spongy.  We have had to get everything out of the RV that we could and have alot of our stuff in boxes at a friends garage.  The RV insurance company are to and froing with Camping world while they make their minds up whether they are going to do the claim or not.

It is a really scary time and I just don’t see what the problem is.  I really hope they cover it but if they don’t I really don’t know what we are going to do to get it fixed.  It is going to cost an arm and a leg.  If we have to pay then I may be asking you all for donations to help us during this difficult time.  We really don’t like to ask but if they do not cover the cost of repair then any help would be greatly appreciated.  I will kkep you all informed on what is going on soon.

We love our RV and cannot believe tht water like that can do so much damage.

Sorry I haven’t written for a while but will try to keep you all up to date with the flood outcome.

This is where we are staying at the moment.  Cheap and cheerful with breakfast included.  Most days it has only been $55 per night but at weekends up to $94.

Executive Inn and Suites

 

Anyway we are both ok so that is a good thing.  We hope you all had a great Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

Hummingbirds like the Marmalade Bush

Hummingbirds are such an amazing bird to watch,  they just love the flowers on the bush right outside our RV.  On the Mountain View RV Park there are tons of these bushes and I see hummingbirds all the time.

Hummingbirds

In England where I come from, there are no hummingbirds just flying around.  I am not an expert I just like them and they fascinate me.  I could just watch them all day they are fabulous.  When I have visitors from England they are just mesmerized by these little birds.

Hummingbirds are so tiny and quick at flying that you could easily miss them.  They flit, they fly, and they hovver.  The cool thing is though that when there is food around for them they stick around longer.

The humming birds hover in the air and use their beaks to get the nectar from inside the flowers on the bush that is outside our RV.  The bush is called a Marmalade bush and there are so many in this RV Park it is really pretty with orange everywhere.  The winter is coming so the orange petals are starting to fall to the ground.

We have a marmalade bush right by our outdoor grill.  We sat there barbecuing and just watched a hummingbirds come and feed, it is just an awesome site.

This was the hummingbird last night feeding from the marmalade bush.

hummingbird outside our RV

When we lived in our house in Bakersfield, we had a couple of hummingbird feeders in the back yard that we kept full for them so that in the winter they had plenty to eat.  We had hummingbirds fighting over them it was so cool to watch.

Winter

I know that in California we do not really have harsh winters but have a thought for the hummingbirds when all the flowers have gone what are they going to eat.  Put out yourself a hummingbird feeder and then you can help them through the winter months.

Here is the feeder that we will be putting up in the winter ready to help them and this is the feeder that was in our back yard.  Just look at the hummingbirds they love it.

Hummingbirds hovering around feeder

The solution that you put inside the feeder is sugar and water with one part sugar to four parts water,  boil the water to kill any bacteria let it cool and fill the feeder it is that easy.

Winter – 5 steps for your RV

Are you prepared for the winter nights that are drawing in?

Winter

Winter in Birmingham

This is what we left behind in England.  If we want snow we will go to the mountains to find it otherwise.

No thank you !

At night the temperature has started to drop, the clocks have gone back and it is dark now at 5.30pm.

We have been living in our RV full-time now for 3 years and to be honest have not had much of a problem getting through the winter.  We do have a few tips for you though.

Winter – Get prepared

Throughout the year we tend to use blankets, just sheets or home-made quilts that are in layers so that depending on the temperature we can put on or take off during the night.  Mostly kicking off all but our sheet during the summer .

We live in California so we find that the only time the temperature drops is during the winter months and at night.  That time is coming upon us and we noticed that the temperature dropped just the other night.  When this happens we switch out our blankets and put on our winter duvet.

1.   Duck Down Duvet

We have found the best duvet to have to keep you warm during the winter months is a duck down feather duvet.  It feels so light and yet is so warm.  We have been in freezing conditions in the past and yet we have stayed warm with this duvet.

Check out this video on how best to put you duvet into your duvet cover in a really easy way.  This can be done with just one person.

 

2.   Cover up your pipes outside

If you know that there is going to be some frost then you will need to go outside and insulate your pipes with slip foam rubber insulation.

3.  Cover up all outdoor furniture

You can get covers for you outdoor furniture and grills,  these can easily be taken off if you wish to use your furniture or grill anytime.  By doing this it will prolong the life of the outdoor furniture as frost can make plastic snap and break from the cold.

4.   Electric heaters

The use of electric heaters are great as they create less moisture in your RV.  We have our gas heater set on 60 so if the temperature drops really low at night then it just comes on.  Living in California has great benefits as it doesn’t drop down to that too much.  On our campsite Mountain View RV Park  the electric is included so that is great to use for heating.  If it is not then try to use both your gas and electric and split the cost of the bill.  Last year we needed a new propane tank every week to get us through the winter.

5.   Pull in your Awnings if you go out anywhere

When we went out today we did not pull in our Awning.  the winds picked up and all I could think about while we were out was. Wished we had pulled in our awning.  Get into the habit if you go out as the winds are much stronger in the winter and you may come back to no awning.

As an extra tip Become a Snowbird

What can I say we are snowbirds if you don’t want winter then move south just like the geese,  We are in Southern California and I thought today oh my there is a cloud in the sky it must be winter!

 

 

El Nino – Are you safe

Mountain View RV Park.

Jacuzzi at Mountain View RV Park

We have just moved to a new RV Park in Santa Paula called Mountain View RV Park.  The Journey was only 20 minutes away so not a long journey at all.  Everything went well with the move and our spot was really easy to drive into.

Living here in Santa Paula, we feel quite safe.  The fact that with the El Nino, that people are talking about coming to California this fall, that we are going to be safe.

image

Our spot at Mountain View RV park

El Nino

Lots of places to sit at the Jucuzzi

Santa Paula

Santa Paula is known as the citrus capital of the world and trust me there is orange and lemon trees everywhere you look.   Peter and I sing the song Orange and Lemons every time we go past them.  We just can’t help it.  We just love the smell.

In England where we are from we don’t have orange or lemon trees.  The first time we saw the orange and lemon groves here in this area was when we arrived in America in 2006 we had a trip to the beach at Ventura and drove down the 126 which were just lined with all the groves and it was just fascinating, we bought some oranges on our way home and they were the sweetest oranges and juiciest we had ever tasted.  Yum.

We really can’t believe that 8 years later we are living amongst the groves.  Just beautiful.

We really like living in RV Parks as we love meeting people and having a life that is as much indoors as outdoors and we like the fact that people who live in RVs meet up and socialize.

Peter just got home from work and we had a nice swim before dinner just fabulous, we were the only ones in the jacuzzi. A beer in one hand and a nice dip after a hard day, priceless.

The same day we moved in Mountain View RV Park we were invited over for snacks and a swim in the Jacuzzi with a few of the other guests staying at the park.  We met about 8 people and have already spoken to our wonderful neighbours who have been very helpful.

El Nino KTLA –  guideline.

On the news this morning they talked about being prepared for the El Nino coming in the fall.  It really made you think.  They explained all about what the El Nino is and to make sure that you know what to do should something happen like a mudslide.  Click the above link to see their explanation and the guideline they have said you should follow.

My take on it is that if you are prepared for earthquakes as you should be living in California, then you are prepared for the El Nino.  The same thing applies.  One of the things they did talk about though on the news was to make sure you have Wellington boots, they called them something else that Americans call them and I cannot remember what that is so here is a link of what the English call wellies

 

 

Keep your wellies in the car so that in the effect of a mudslide that you are able to walk away from the situation should you be trapped in your car.

We also feel that living further inland for the winter will be very beneficial, with the El Nino effect coming around the fall we have a feeling that living right by the beach may not be a good idea. Obviously you really do not know what can happen as living by the coast or inland in a valley can have a devastating effect no matter what.

The El Nino could cause mudslides from the mountains and the Santa Clara River in Santa Paula could fill and overflow or we could indeed have an earthquake living in California anyway.  We do feel a little safer inland from both as an earthquake could cause a Tsunami and being right there at the beach would not be a good place to be. Who knows what could happen but just that you should be prepared.

Be Prepared and check out the KTLA link above.

Stay safe and love to all.

Snowbirds – Ventura here we come

The snowbirds saying goodbye

Yesterday at Kaiser where Peter works they did a high tea for him with lots of really nice sandwiches and goodies and had a bit of an English day for Peter.  He loved it, Peter is loved wherever he works and always makes great friends and he is always sad to leave and say goodbye.

It is our last day at the repair shop where we have been boondocking as well.  Boondocking means that we were just dry camping with no hook ups to water or sewer.  We did however have access to electricity and we have been a guest of  V&V brothers repair shop and have been really grateful of their hospitality. You can last a week like this in your RV and we have been at the repair shop on their parking lot for 5 days.  We have tried to conserve water as much as possible so that we can last without any problems.

Snowbirds

We are what is called Snow birds which means we live in our RV and that we are hitting south for the winter.  If you want to see what wikepedia says about snowbirds then just click the title link.  Who wants to be in an area where the weather may be a little colder in the winter.  Not us, we like the warmer weather, our time in Half Moon Bay was just fabulous and we were really lucky with the weather.  Not many cloudy days at all.  We felt like we were living in Scotland with all the heather and rugged terrain on the cliffs.  Fabulous scenery and views that we will cherish for all time.

There are snowbirds that come from all over America and Canada that travel to the South for the Winter. Most of these people are of ages 55 and upwards and some of them meet up every winter at the same places and just live through a winter in the warmer weather.  When I lived in England a lot of people in England go to places like Spain for the winter as England gets so cold.  A lot of the RV parks in the south cater for the snowbirds and give discounted rates for staying on a monthly rate in their parks in the winter.  So many people are doing this now that it can be hard to find a spot.

RV repairs

Not all of our repairs got done as one of the parts we needed was not able to be delivered in time.  The panel that needed repairing after hitting the post on our move to the North still needs to be replaced and is covered under insurance so we will now have to get that done in Ventura.  We were a little disappointed and not very happy after staying this week that we could not to get that done.  We are very laid back people so hey ho the wind and the rain.  It really is just cosmetic and will not affect us in any way so we will just have to wait a little longer to get it done.

We did get a few other little repairs done by Antonio at the V&V brothers repair shop and the most important of all a new set of stairs that got damaged in the accident which were dangerous.

During servicing the RV one of the biggest things that he replaced was the anode rod water heater element.  Apparently this needs to be replaced every year to stop the corrosion to your water heater.  We couldn’t believe the damage that had been done to it in 3 years and is a good job it has been replaced.  Just look at the picture of before and after. The skinny one is what it looks like now and the fat one is how it should be.  Unbelievable, we did not know that this needs to be replaced every year.

snowbirds

Water heater element

We are so happy with our new set of steps to the RV and now feel very safe stepping in and out and we even purchased a nice little step to make it even easier to get in and out.

Here is a picture of our new steps

snowbirds

Steps

Other things that you need to do yourself to keep your RV in good working order are:

  • Wash the mesh in the air-conditioning unit regularly just like you would if you lived in a house or replace as necessary.
  • Keep mesh ceiling vents clean.  We wash ours every 3 months and they look like new after 3 years.
  • Clean out the refrigerator vents on the outside and keep free of dust and debris.
  • Defrost the refrigerator every 3 months.  The RV refrigerator needs to be done more often than a normal house refrigerator.
  • Clean your RV every 3 months.
  • After 3 years get your roof checked out for any sealants that need replacing and paint the roof.  We are getting to that point but when we checked ours it is ok at the moment .

Diesel

The snowbirds are on their way today, sandwiches are made to keep us going and we leave today around 1pm to head down the 101 first of all to stop off for diesel at a truck stop which is just an hour away at The Garlic Farm Plaza truck stop for all you snowbirds travelling in case you didn’t know stopping at a truck stop makes it nice and easy to fill up as the rig is so big.  You should always plan your route so that you know were you can park and fill up or stop to eat.

Yanks RV Resort great for snowbirds

We will be staying tonight at the Yanks RV resort which is about 2 hours away from the truck stop. This RV park is very luxurious and we have a 100ft site that will be very easy to drive into and we can stay hooked up to our truck all night without any problem whatsoever.  The site cost is $73 and for such a large site we think this was very reasonable.

While we are at the RV resort we will be able to dump all of our sewerage and water and replenish our water tank as well as catch up with some washing that we could not do when we were boondocking.

We might even have a nice swim in the hot jacuzzi with a beer and relax for the night.  We would imagine that a lot of snowbirds head for this destination from further north as it looks like a really nice site.  We are looking forward to leaving today and we are really excited.

If you are snowbirds and would like to say high then just look our for the montanna mountaineer being pulled by a big red truck.

On Saturday morning we will head to Ventura and will get up and drive a further 1 hour and stop off for a really nice breakfast at another truck stop at the San Paso truck stop in Paso Robles.  This will make the journey nice and easy for Peter.

After that we will head down to our RV Park in Ventura which will take us about 3 hours. We will be staying at the Ventura Beach RV park it was very difficult to get an RV spot in this area as it is as a lot of snowbirds want to stay in this beautiful area.  There are various RV parks but all of them full.  We had our name down on some of them that were less expensive but just could not get a spot.  We are grateful we now have a spot booked but not really happy about the price which is $1600 per month which will include any electric.  The other RV parks that did not have any spaces are only $800 + electric which normally will be around $200 – $300.  We are hoping that this just means that this park is really luxurious. Lets hope so, a lot of the reviews we have read were not that favourable for such an expensive site.  a lot of the comments were though that it is near a freeway and we already know that.

Peter will be working in Oxnard so he needs to be able to get there and this is the only option available. We really don’t mind paying for a spot that is really nice it is our home after all.  We will do an update on our thoughts on the park once we are settled in.

We will really miss the wonderful friends we have made up north but hopefully we will see you again. Bye for now and see you soon.

California Fires – are you prepared

Would you be ready to move your RV within 15 minutes if there was a fire?

California Fires

California fires

fire

California fires are a reality living in California and during our time here we have seen many fires.  With the many fires that are happening right now in Northern California it has been on many people conversations this past week.  The poor people who have lost their homes is just so sad.

The fire department came to our campsite just the other day and bought to attention to the owners that some campers have way to many items around their RVs.  When you live in your RV full-time you start to collect stuff.  Do not be a victim of California Fires and be prepared.

If you can honestly say that you could not move your RV in 15 minutes then you really need to have a rethink about the STUFF in your RV and around it.

We went through our RV and I can proudly say that we could move in 15 minutes having everything packed inside and out.

The only thing that would get left behind would be our tower garden and some plants.

A Place for Everything

In our RV we have a place for everything and the same plan every time we move sites.  This is how I start packing inside the house.  It normally takes me an hour as I just take my time when I pack away but I can certainly do it in 15 minutes and living in areas where California Fires are a reality, along with tsunamis and earthquakes we have certainly thought of this.

Here are my steps for packing.

1.  First thing I do is to pack my wine glasses into a wine glass protection case.  This releases a whole cupboard for my pictures and ornaments that I have around my RV.

california fires

Glass case

2.  Wrap ornaments in tea towels and place into cupboard that is now empty.  This does not take long.  I start in one area of the RV and work around so that nothing is missed.  All these items fit into that cupboard and then at the front and back I place cushions off the couch for extra safety.

Ornaments

3.  My washing machine goes into the shower, and the kitchen trash can go into the bathroom.

4.   My shoes go into a box and also into the bathroom on the floor.  The shoe rack closes flat on goes onto the couch.

5.   My small folding table wheels into the corner where the shoes were along with the coffee table.

6.  The printer goes under the dining room chairs.

7.  The filing cabinet is put onto the couch.

8.  The two swivel chairs go back to back with the cupboard between them so that when the slides come in they have nowhere to go.

9.  Carpets are rolled up and put onto the bed.

10.  everything in the kitchen fits under the sink, except the knives that go under a chair also in the dining room.

11.  Anything on the dressing table in the bedroom fits into the bedroom cupboards.

12.  In the bathroom everything left out goes into the sink such as toothbrushes, soaps etc.

I then check that all the cupboards are shut properly and that there is nothing obstructing the slide outs.  I start in one spot and go all the way around.  We are then ready for the slide outs to come in.  One of the things I nearly forgot once was the hangers  I have over draws in the kitchen.

california fires

drawer hanger

Check ever inch and then get someone else to check too.

If you are having to move in a rush then just stay calm and go through mthodically.

1.  Stay Calm

2.  Make a Plan

3.  Have a place for everything

4.  Be organised

5.  Everything in the RV should have a home in the RV

6.  Everything outside of the RV has a home underneath the RV in storage when packing.

The only help I need inside the RV is to put the chairs back to back, everything else I can do very easily whilst my husband Peter does outside disconnecting the pipes and electricity and making sure everything is stored in the understorage compartments.

We have timed ourselves and it is tight but we can do all this in 15 minutes.

Organisation is the key to all of this.  If you do not have a place for everything then you will not succeed in getting away in time and saving your home and your life.

Leaving your RV in 2 Minutes

If you do not even get 15 minutes because maybe the fire is just too close, make sure that all your personal papers like passports and birth certificates are altogether and in something that you can pick up and run with and also keep them in a safe that if it burns they are not damaged inside.

This is the one that we have

Sentry safe

 

Make a plan today California Fires is a reality, make sure your can pack up and go within 15 minutes. Fire will not wait for you to pack up.
