9:15 this morning we had a visitor. Lance from one of the satellite installation companies was out first thing to register our new satellite internet system and give me a brief description of how and what to do in setting it up. I have been warned many times from just about everyone that has one of these systems that it just isn’t easy to set up If you are lucky it will only take 20 to 30 minutes, but most often it is going to take much longer. Lance got it set, running, and registered in just over 20 minutes, which was also my total instruction period. I hope that God will be watching over me as I get into setting this system up and give me a little help. Lance had no sooner left and we were pulling every thing down and putting it away for we had to check out before 11am. We are continuing our drive north on 395 to Reno and then into California and onto Oregon. Beyond Reno we are on “new” (to us…) roads. When we hit Susanville (which was the alternate route taken by the pioneers instead of Donner Pass) we came out of Long Valley and started up a very steep and winding road for the next 4 miles. It was one of those roads that gave us an unforgettable view of the valley below. It was also one of those roads that is sooo narrow that on the passenger side it feels like you could almost go over the cliff at any moment. Louise LOVED it…. A couple of hours later we were looking for a place to park for the night. We have now gone from desert sage brush to large pine forests and just as we were thinking that we would have to go on for miles on miles for a campground, we found Modac National Forest and our next campsite. As we pulled in it was obvious that we were the only camper there. The gate was open so we set ourselves up. A little later we did have company. Jim and Kathy Kirby drove in with their motor home followed a little later by another camper in a tent. Jim was out walking his dog and I asked him and Kathy if they would like to join us for a glass of wine after dinner, which they did. We had a great chance to exchanging travels stories and we picked up a lot of interesting places we will have to visit soon.
