Would like to travel from Yosemite to Santa Barbara, CA, or in that direction. Thanks.

Just wondering if any of the wildfires are going to impact our trip to Yosemite in August. Hard to tell from the scant information we get in Wisconsin. Anxious to see this park for the first time.

We just got back a few days ago from the7/19-7/24 trip. Absolutely wonderful! Hope you will be able to go. Detailed info is on the internet at https://www.nifc.gov/fireInfo/nfn.htm but I see nothing near Yosemite.. There is/was a fire in Tuolumne county but that's pretty much contained.

Just a day to go now. Sharon and I have been to Yosemite several times before, and are looking forward to seeing it again, with someone else doing the driving!

Looking forward to my first time at Yosemite - and getting off the island and out of the HEAT here in the Lowcountry! See you tomorrow!

Any bridge players on the Yosemite 19-24 trip? NRG
Patti Holsclaw Jul 03, 2015 at 12:59 PM

Hi Nancy - I am a single, don't play any bridge, though, planning to pack some warm weather clothes and a jacket or two. Don't know what to expect weather wise. I live on the east coast but visit southern California often - family there. You can contact me at my email oak_island@yahoo.com if you like.

Single traveler. Will see you tomorrow!

Sorry about all the duplicate pictures of Daisy. Sometimes the techno world stumps me. Thought the photo wasn't loading but...it did each time! Daisy has been bored the last few days -- she says, more Road Scholar!

Just back from the trip. Had a fabulous time and it was great getting to meet all of you.
