Catching Up With Kaneohegirlinaz

Sheesh, where to start?

I don't want to overwhelm everyone, so I will give you all small 'bites' of what we've been up to over the past SIX MONTHS I can't believe that first off.

Anywhos, here goes:

Road Trip August 2019 ~ California

Those DC members who know me, know that on our "Blast Off" mornings at zero-dang-early-hour, I make up breakfast sandwiches to eat once our stomachs finally wake up

Taylor's Ham aka Pork Roll fried crisp with an Egg, fried hard & some Chives sprinkled over it and a slice of Cheese (to the diner's choice)

All washed down with some Cranberry-Pineapple Juice that I brought along in the cooler.

1st Stop for the Night: Tehachapi, CA

BEAUTIFUL!!!
I didn't snap any photos here, but believe me when I tell you it's drop dead gorgeous here, and that's sayin' something from a little Hawaii-Born Gal!

Dinner was at the Red House BBQ … thank you Cheryl J for the suggestion back a time back … that was delicious!

I judge a BBQ joint by it's Brisket, don't you?
The sides offered were a dream, I chose Fried Okra and Mac `N Cheese
WOW!

DH isn't into BBQ much …

This joint encourages graffiti, I couldn't resist …

Moving On ...

The next morning we decided that we wanted more than the standard continental breakfast offered for free by our hotel and headed over to Henry's Café.
There was a HUGE to-do with the locals and everyone was chattering on about the new Walmart Super Center that had just opened, I mean as in the Grand Opening was that morning!
Fortunately for us, most of the gang had cleared out of the Café and we didn't have to wait very long for a table.

We shared, shared mind you, a Breakfast Burrito... good thing too. DH had ordered first and asked that his Burrito have the Potatoes on the side... after seeing one being placed down at the table next to us, I said "just coffee for me please".

*** Here's what we've learned having done so many Road Trips and living out of a suitcase for weeks on end: you really don't want to have leftovers to deal with when traveling. Most sit-down-restaurants serve more food than one of us can eat, so with that, we share (not "split", they up-charge for that). If for some reason that's not enough food, there's always dessert.

From Tehachapi, we motored towards my Mother's home for a visit. My Mom LOVES it when we come to stay with her, because she gets to go out to eat, her favorite activity.
My Mother doesn't really cook anymore, it's just her and each time that we go there, I bring loads of her favorite dishes for her freezer.

We headed out on a day-trip over to Kingsburg for lunch and some window shopping.

The restaurant that Mom wanted to take us to was CLOSED, DANG IT!
But their sister shop, Bella Bakery was open.
So we had cupcakes and coffee for lunch. YUM!

Next up on the agenda, late lunch/early dinner at DiCicco's over in Sanger.

Like I said, my Mother likes to eat out; any leftovers stay in her `fridge for her later consumption.

DiCicco’s in Fresno was our (first wife and me) hangout in the 70's and 80's.. A high school friend of my wife bar tended there for many, many years.. Had a lot of good food and fun there..

From the web site...
"first DiCicco’s Restaurant was opened on Belmont and Blackstone Avenues."

That was the Fresno location we went to lots..

To be honest, we stay away from Fresno, when we are in Cali.. It was a pretty great place in the 60's/70's..

Everything looks good.

BTW I found out about the "UP charge" crap. Now I just share with my daughter.

Both my husband and I like to plan an extra Road Trip after a stay at my Mom's. This time we headed for Newport Beach. We've stayed here several times in the past at a very simple old-school motor-court motel, right across the street from the BEACH!!!!

AND they have a huge Okazu-ya or Japanese delicatessen. We have at least one meal a day here when in Newport Beach.

Once we'd had our fill of food, fun and sun, we made our way home.

Road-tripping is so much fun! Since we haven't been to anywhere much lately other than FL or OH, I'll just ride along with you and DH and enjoy the scenery and food reviews. I take it that your DH's arm is all nicely healed from his mishap?

There is a coffee pot water tower along our route from home (OH) to "home" (MA). It's nowhere near as pretty as the one you posted the photo of, though.

I’m enjoying this thread. I was thinking about doing a road trip in April when my younger daughter has spring break. We would drive to Chicago from Boston and spend 10 days to break up the trip. The wife is not interested in doing this unless we fly out. She doesn’t want to repeat sitting in a car for 32+ hours of driving.

CG, DH's arm is healed, but he still does PT to strengthen his Bicep, which was completely severed and successfully re-attached by the brilliant surgeon our GP referred him to.

Mahalo, thank you BBQ !! I'm really glad that you're enjoying this adventure.
It's a shame The wife doesn't want to Road Trip, we find it very relaxing and a blast to-boot.

We like to take non-highway-ish roads when possible and see more of the countryside as apposed to the Interstate.

We keep our driving days to anywhere from 5-8 hours at a crack.
Once we did a 13 hour day of non-stop driving, that was eating sandwiches in the car that I had made up the night before and only rest stops when necessary.

We do a lot of research prior to blast off, plot out our route with stops, food and sight-seeing too, that's real fun of it.
We drive one day from point A to point B, check into our motel/hotel, and spend 1-5 days at any given locale for activities.

This little Hawaiian Gal has seen more things in America than I ever dreamed I would. I feel very blessed, indeed!

*** Author's side note: Are honeymoon, many moons ago, was a month long Road Trip. DH planned it all, by the seat of his pants, and I thought that he was NUTS! We went from Baltimore, MD to Kennebunkport, ME and back again, with historical stops along the way, even Niagara Falls, WOW!!!

… Let's Get Ready to ...

Go on another Road Trip!

This time it'll be from Arizona to Florida and back again, yup.
On my bucket list is Key West Florida. Being born and raised in Hawaii, I've so wanted to visit here. For my bladdy-blah-blah birthday, DH agreed that he'd take me there (he's been several times before he met me).

So let's get ready.

I'm so happy that I found this new Mini Keurig coffee maker, I just knew that it would be much better than the coffee offered in your hotel room. Not to mention, they only provide you with two cups per day. We enjoy a cup or three in the mornings before we leave for the day; as well DH likes coffee once we get back in the later afternoons.

Along with paper goods, I also take along with us some S&P, spices, Shoyu (aka Soy Sauce) and Furikake, Mayo & Mustard and the odd condiment pack. I do cook/grill from time to time on Road Trips.
The Aloha Shoyu To-Go is new. I've been looking for this for years! I wanted the single-serve packets for Road Trips, but only found it this past May whilst back home in Hawaii, of course.
In addition, I pack-up acoupla per-made suppers, sandwich makings, a box of Cereal and Road Snacks.

We never travel anywhere without bottled water, it's a desert sort of mind-set. I've also brought along this trip some small single-serve bottles of Juices for early blast off days and when hotel-free-breakfast isn't available.
You can't see it, but back there is a case of wine for you know, emergencies.

See those floral plastic bins? I got them at the Megamart for $5 each... I felt that they would work well as my "kitchen on the road" so to speak. That way if there's any spillage along the way, no big deal.
Also not visible are two large covered plastic bins with 1 weeks worth of clothes for each of us, we'll do laundry along the way when necessary.

So the car is pack and loaded for bear (and I think I did a pretty dang good job of it even if I do say so my self), it's time to go!

Wow, sounds exciting. I guess you have "itchy feet".

Bottled water as dessert mind set? What about the water bag with the water soaked cover that we used to put on the bumper of the car while driving through the dessert? Do people do that anymore?

Loving this K-Girl..

Taxlady.. We used to do the water bag thingy a lot.. Plus.. Before we got a car with AC, we had a window appliance which we would fill with water and it would cool the car as we drove down the highway.. Kinda like the old swamp coolers for houses.. Great memories..

Taxy, one of the reasons that DH and I decided to move from a Hawaii to the continental USA is to be able to travel more.
We both love Road Trips, we think that it's the best way to see the Country.
As to the bottled water, we learned very early on that you should always keep potable water in the car at all times. Ya neva know

Mahalo, thank you Ross!
I'm really glad that you're enjoying coming along on this journey with us, so to speak

First Stop …

Once a year, DH and I make a pilgrimage to Southern Arizona to see our doctors.
Now this may sound odd, but it took us a long time to find good health care once we moved to the "Mainland" and it's become even harder since moving to Northern AZ.
We do have GP's up here for the odd cold, flu shots and whatnot, but the big stuff is taken care of with our tried and true doc's down South.

I found this great Hotel/Condo/Time Share, not sure what it is exactly, because each time we've been in the past three years, it changes.
But we love the place.
I reserve us a one bedroom apartment with a king sized bed. There's a Livingroom, dining room, full kitchen and covered patio. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you'd need to prepare and serve three meals a day. The lanai has a gas grill, which is a HUGE plus for us. Oh, AND there's a washer and dryer in the apartment!!! +++++

What I do is go to the grocery store once we've gotten situated, it's less than a mile away, stock us up with whatever foods we will need for our stay and we're golden!

There are a few restaurants that we go to while in Southern Arizona, not many, but we do go out to eat every so often. On this trip, we had breakfast at Sahuaro Café, MMM!

Also on this trip, we did a take out order of Mama's Sicilian Deep Dish Pizza, meh. I think we'll stick to the thin crust.

The apartment complex provides a few things to get you started, such as coffee, paper goods AND some microwave popcorn! I made us up a big bowl sprinkled with some of our Furikake to enjoy as we watched a movie in the very comfortable Livingroom one night.

So we've made the full round to all of our doctor's, now, it's time to get this Road Trip going!!
