I know, I know. I didn't even tell you we were going anywhere. But Scoob's kinda funny about that, and really, it probably is better to be careful about broadcasting when you won't be home for an extended time. But anyhow we went up to Susanville, CA for a family reunion and then headed out on our own to explore the northeastern part of the state. More on that later. Right now I have make peace with the furry critters after leaving them alone for 5 days and wash the layers of road grime from myself.
