Humboldt County Fairgrounds RV Park, California

We moved over to the Humboldt County Fairgrounds and will be spending Thanksgiving with a couple of RV friends, John & Sue that we met in northern Washington a few years ago. Life is good!

Overall Experience: smile

From our site at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds, we look across the way at a field full of dairy cattle. In the area, we've seen several fence post signs for Horizon Organic. It appears that the cows grazing on lots of green grass are happy, just like Horizon's logo.

Every once in a while, we’re in a situation that’s a tad scary, such as the bridge on the road to Ferndale. Our coach’s width is the max legal at 102” (8’ 5"). This width doesn’t include safety equipment – i.e., mirrors. I’ll guarantee that we filled every bit of space between the yellow & whites stripes on this bridge!

Thanksgiving RV Style

Thanksgiving Turkey John created a unique smoker that folds up neatly for storage in his RV. The cover is dual-purpose: not only does it cover the smoker, but it's also Sue's cooking wok. Thanks to John's skills, the turkey came out perfect. Meanwhile, Sue & Diana put the rest of the meal together in the RV. All was excellent.
