Arrival Travis AFB

30 August 2017

A 3 hour drive from Red Bluff to Travis AFB, our home until the 12th.    This is our 5th visit to Travis since 2012.

Site 65


Travis is an Air Mobility Command base named for Brigadier General Robert F Travis who died in the crash of a B-29.Superfortress while transporting a nuclear weapon in 1950.The base was built in 1942 and originally named Fairfield Suisun Army Air Base.

Temps here have been in the 110's for several days. Unless the heat subsides, we are not venturing out.

While shopping in the Commissary, finally found a bamboo plant to replace the one US customs took when we crossed back into Idaho from BC. I tried to find one in Oregon, but after trying half dozen places decided to wait until we got to California.



One of the cute jack rabbits visited today. The campground also has lots of birds, mostly red winged blackbirds and starlings, and ground squirrels. In fact when we got here asked to have our picnic table pressure washed as it was covered with bird droppings. After 2 days and no result, decided to clean it myself with lots of clorox wipes, rubber gloves and dawn soap.  Think they should inspect each site after one leaves and take care of the problems. The campground is separated into dog friendly and no dogs. The dog friendly side has less trees and tighter spaces.
