The day before we departed Redmond, the passenger window in the Malibu would not go up so John made a cover out of cardboard and gorilla tape to last until we got to Travis AFB in Fairfield. Too bad it did not happen earlier in the week so we could have gotten it fixed before departing.
We said our good by's to Hope and family and left for our next 1 night stop at Mountain Gate RV park in Redding,CA. This is our 3rd short stay and find it to be a very good and convenient park just off IH 5 coming into Redding. Only negative was front of motorhome covered in ants..got out the clorox wipes and John cleaned the front window. Best way to get rid of ants is to use clorox. Our route took us on Hwy 97 to Weed and IH5. Recent fire in Weed was devastating to the community.

23 September 2014
A short 4 hour drive down IH 5 to 505 and 80 and we arrived around noon at Travis AFB. This is our 3rd stay here. Travis AFB is under the control of the Air Mobility Command and the host unit of the 60th Mobility Wing flying the C-5 Galazies, KC-10 Extenders and C-17 Globemaster III aircraft. The base handles more cargo and passenger traffic than any other military terminal in the US. It is also host to the Jimmy Doolittle Air and Space Museum with one of the largest collection of military aircraft on the West Coast.

|Where's my carrots?|
While we are here, we will visiting with some friends and relaxing until we depart on the 28th for 2 nights in Bakersfield.
When we pulled into our site #64,we were greeted by some cute rabbits. Will have to get some carrots.
After we arrived,we took the car to Fairfield Chevrolet for repair on the window. We were able to wait as they installed a new master window switch. When we get to Seal Beach will have the recall on the ignition switch replaced. Could not have it done here as parts don't come in until the 1st of October.
We also filled out and mailed our absentee ballots before leaving. Oregon knows how to do voting best. All voting is my mail in..not going to voting places..all state should do this..feel it would eliminate voter fraud and voters voting multiple times.
Might even get more voters to vote.
Saw a sign driving in "keep your doctor, get rid of your congressman".
A friend of mine, Carolyn,posted the following which is so true.
"You can never make the same mistake twice because the second time you make it,it's not a mistake, it's a choice."
