So our time frame change to get going on July 2nd did step up our pace to get the house empty. I did the house on my own. I worked three summers of my five or six college summers for a moving company, packing up houses and moving them. Some old trade secrets came handy, like making “false” floors of card board sheet within a carton to separate layers of breakables.
Anyhow, everything we’ve kept beyond the stuff in the RV is in storage and we are off. With the calendar change we ended up filling the time in Napa at the Skyline Park a lovely County Park and RV camp in the hills of East Napa. We enjoyed it as an extension of our farewell to Napa Valley and did some sightseeing and dining out. Tomorrow we are off to Monterey.

This is from the Pebble Beach web site. It is hard to describe the place much better. It is dear to us for its incomparable beauty, and will be a highlight of our journey as the place for the formal start.
