The two RV Gypsies in Redding, California
and Bear Mountain RV Resort
May 6, 2009
The largest California city north of Sacramento is both the center of commerce for northern California and home to vacation essentials.
This section begins with a few fun photos taken out the window of the moving motorhome while driving from San Francisco to Redding, California. It continues on to Shasta Dam, Shasta Lake. Mt. Shasta, and the amazing Sundial Bridge.
After being in California wine country with wine tasting tours everywhere, the two RV Gypsies saw an interesting sign about wine, plus a sign that more people need to pay attention to - don't litter.

BEAR MOUNTAIN RV RESORT and CAMPGROUND
It appeared that many RV's were permanent here, older, and not well maintained.

The entrance road to the campground was uphill, narrow, and curvy. When the two RV Gypsies checked in at the campground office, Karen asked the person at the front office desk, "What happens if we meet someone coming up the hill?" and he said, "You stop" and I asked, "Yeah, and then what?" He did not respond. If a motorhome towing a toad up the hill meets a motorhome towing a toad going down the hill - there WILL be a major problem. There is not enough room to pull over and neither RV would be able to back up. So when the two RV Gypsies left the campground, Karen drove the toad down the hill and prevented anyone from attempting the drive up until after she called Lee and told him it was safe to drive the motorhome down the hill. The pictures below don't show the steepness or narrowness of the hill but it does show the curves.
