Camping At Shaver Lake
We decided not the go to a casino and continued on to Shaver Lake yesterday. It took us 8 hours to get here. We stopped in Bakersfield at Camping World and picked up a few things we needed. In and Out Burgers was across the road, so we had lunch.
The lake is in the mountains and there is a LONG climb getting here. I think Sharon said it was an eight mile climb. The grade was fairly steep, but the Bounder and her 454 Chevy engine took it quite easily. We kept a speed of 43 to 48 MPH all the way up. I did drop down to second gear at times. I think the Thorley headers we had installed really helped with the extra power to get up into the mountain.
There are probably about 10 rigs here already. I am surprised we have so many a day early. Last night we sat around the campfire netting acquainted with new friends and enjoying friends we have met an previous rallies. Camping with a group of friends is fantastic. If you go to rv.net and find a rally in your area, I highly recommend going to it.
The weather is beautiful. It was cold last night but not that bad. This morning there is a bite to the air, but I’m sure it is still above freezing.
