We have never had Trick or Treaters during the eight years we have been RVing. But I always buy a bit of candy "just in case." Of course, Forry's always quite happy that no one knocks on our door. It's interesting where kids - and their parents - choose to go. Son Sean also has never had anyone knock on his door - even though he's lived on the first floor of his apartment complex for over twenty years.
Daughter Mary Mae and her family live on almost the end of a road that comes out of a cul-de-sac. I'm not sure they'd get Trick or Treaters if they didn't always have a big Halloween party. When I talked to MM this afternoon, the kids were still decorating and she was busy cooking.
I don't know about Daughter Dawn's new house. They're kinda on a corner and could get a lot of traffic -- or not.
We continued down 99S today until we got to Bakersfield, then turned east onto Highway 58. We saw different country today. The further south you travel in California, the worse the effects of the drought seem to be. We saw lots and lots of vineyards and miles and miles of orchards. In between, the ground was dry and sere and much of it wasn't being farmed. We saw signs saying that most of the world's almonds were grown here; signs saying the water issue was all the fault of politicians; and signs extolling California raisins.
We are in a town called Boron, near a huge boraxo mine. We are now in the Mojave Desert and our scenery tends more to Joshua trees and sand. We have two more days of travel (though it may take us three if we take a rest day) before we reach Eagle View. We did get a call from Sandy today just checking to make sure we were okay as last year we were at the RV park by this date.
