2014 Lake Almanor Day 8

Until next year - 2014 Lake Almanor Day 8 - #lake_almanor_2014

Jack and I were up early packing and cleaning up the cabin. We had to be out of the Chavez Cabin by 11:00 am. Hunter and Yuli got up almost 2 1/2 hours after we did…

Once we were done, we headed to Chabrier's house and helped button things up, including putting the cover on the patio boat. Afterwards, I drove Hunter's truck and trailer around to the boat launch on the west side of the dam to take his boat out of the water. I am still amazed that Hunter got his boat back in the water so quickly after it sunk on Wednesday night.

Hunter and Yuli took me back to Chabrier's house to pick up my car. Leaving Chabriers just before noon, we were home just before 3:30 pm. This included a medium length stop in Chico for food and walking the dog plus some unusual lane configurations on I-80 east bound due to construction. We came back through Oroville and Marysville, rather than through Gridley and Yuba City.

This is the first year since 2010 at Lake Shasta that I have not gone back and forth to Sacramento at least once during the week. It made for a more restful, enjoyable week.

A couple of general observations.

First,  I am amazed at the amount of property for sale. South of Chabriers, I counted nine for sale signs in about a two mile stretch. There were also a lot of for sale signs on the peninsula in the area around Knotty Pines.

Second, I am hopeful that I will be back in the Dorado Inn next year. If I can get back into the Dorado Inn, I would love to get Drew and Nicky {plus Morgan and Beau?!?} up for part of the week. It will be interesting to see how the group continues to morph and change in the next few years.
