In Seal Beach and a Hike

Despite our adventures a week ago when we first started out from Jojoba Hills to Seal Beach, we finally got here on Wednesday.  The drive was without incident and there was no hint of any computer or electrical problems.  (Sounds like a common 'Can Not Duplicate' problem doesn't it?0

So we will be parked here for a the next month.  We can take action on some great tips a couple of folks sent us on maybe troubleshooting or researching the problem.  Right now we are able to enjoy time with friends and family and extended family for a few days.

My brother Reid and wife Amy are here for a few days.  We joined them at the fundraiser event on Thursday night then spent some time with everyone but Angela and Jacob (nephew Nate's wife and son).  Hope to see them tomorrow.

Yesterday Nate organized a hike up around the hills not far from his neighborhood.  Cass (a friend from church) and Reid and I joined him.  We drove over to the trailhead and were there a little before 9:30 AM and decided on which trails we were going to hike.
Then off we went up what apparently were service roads.
Along the way we saw some beautiful trees, berries and views.
It was a great day for a hike.
And the great thing about a couple of hours with the guys is that we could discuss a few things and get to know each other a little better.  Which is what I thoroughly enjoy.

As we neared the top of the trail we could see some nice homes across the canyon.
At the top we paused for some timed-photos.
And we looked around.
Then we took a trail down a different canyon.
This trail has us coming off the mountain into some neighborhoods.  It was about a mile over to the car from there.
After our hike, we met Lesley, Ezra, Pam and Amy for lunch at Mimo's.
Whatever calories we worked off in our 6+mile hike, we replenished with lunch!

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Thanks for joining us.  Until next time...


  1. Wow 6 miles and at least half up hill! You guys are in good shape, sure wish I was. I am happy to walk 1 mile on a flat concrete path each day. Happy to hear you are keeping an open mind about the CND. I have no ideas, since I do not know your RV system.

    I was driven nuts by a computer problem on a snow mobile I once had. It would run fine and then hours or minutes later quit. I replaced so many sensors it reported bad. I gave the sled to a friend technician and he managed to open the computer. He found a tiny screw was loose inside the case. He removed it and problem solved. Yes I felt stupid for missing this, but he still enjoys the sled.

    Good luck finding the loose wire or screw or broken solder run on a circuit card etc. You are lucky it does not stop the engine.

  2. From the sounds of the bug in your MH, you might need more than a month to track it down. Good luck in the hunt, may you be successful!

  3. Even thought it's frustrating to not be able to "duplicate the problem" it's nice that you made it without incident. Enjoy the Holidays.

  4. I thoroughly agree that hiking with new blogging friends is the best way to get to know each other better. Those hikes are among some of my favorite meeting memories> Although even hanging out on the steps to say hi for a little bit of time is nice as well :)
