Trip ReportTADMO BL TRIPS #3 SoCal
Well Mo and I put over 1700 miles on the TADMO BL with a trip to SoCal to visit my Brothers for Christmas.
The I-5 drive south Sat. the 23rd sucked big time due to the holiday traffic,
took us 12 hours to go from Redding to Oceanside when normally it takes me 10.
With the slow ride behind us we had a good time with my Bros. and family. :)
Sunday Bro Chad and I just chilled, watched football together, ate well and I pounded some brews.
Christmas day Monday morning we all headed to Riverside to wish our departed parents happy holidays and surprise my Bro Ned and his family.
He was moved to tears with our surprise visit, we had Xmas dinner with them and spent the night there.
Tuesday the 26th we rose early to make a trip to Joshua Tree.
We had not visited there in 25 years so the transformation of the NP and the growth of Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree were shocking. Did some hiking and EZ climbing with my Niece Haley and Nephew Kyle. After spending the day in the NP
we returned to Oceanside for the night.
Wednesday was coast day, we cruised the PCH between Oceanside and La Jolla,
walked and hung out at beaches enjoying the warm weather.
Thursday we headed home, this time the drive was less congested and we made it home in 10 hours.
The TADMO BL performed flawlessly, averaged 26 mpg. and pulled the grapevine easily at 70 mph. :)
Both Bros. really liked the conversion work I did to the van and now Bro Chad is considering getting one for himself. :)
Together we will travel,
Tad n Mo
