Jun 24 California Trip Wrap

Today I finished the book described on Day 22 by Robert Frimtzis, "From Tajikistan to the Moon". It was very interesting and well written. On this trip I discovered the Weather Channel's reports by Interstate. These let you plan your route to avoid snow. I also learned that without special Route 66 maps it is hopeless to find Route 66. Forget about using Rand McNally books. Finally the Trailer Life Directory Campground Navigator 2010 CD works well for finding camp sites. I also recommend the iPhone app RV Parks. It is the first directory that shows street addresses needed for Garmin GPS. Our Garmin Street Pilot won't accept Lat/Long.
