Adventure Day : 220
Date Arrived: 08 April 2004
Date Departed: 08 June 2004
Hub Area: Fresno, California
Actual Location: City : Kingsburg State : California
Summary Title : Central, California Area Visit Summary
Summary : Arrived in Kingsburg, California, for my Central California residence. The main reasons I selected Fresno, California as my Hub and Kingsburg as my actual location was because I was born in Lindsay, California and most of my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins live near Fresno and Lindsay. As Kingsburg is between Fresno and Lindsay, California it was a good choice for a place to stay.
Like my Southern California stay the Central Valley area was also having higher than normal temperatures. At least 10°F or more higher than average. Though the weather was warmer than I had hoped for I decided to stay an extra month for a total of two months. The reason for the extra time was two fold. One I wanted more time to visit with relatives. And two, because I was staying at very nice mobile home park, The Valkommen Village.
During my stay here I found out that I will be a Grandfather, for the first time, in January 2005. Based on this I have made a major change to my long term schedule so I can be in the Boise, Idaho area. For more details go here:
I stayed at The Valkommen Village my entire two months in Kingsburg. The park was a very nice park that had facilities for 4 RV's. I was lucky enough to be parked right next to a small park with picnic benches, horse shoe pit, Gazebo and grass with lots of shade. I spent a lot of my time in that little park just ejoying myself.

For those of you who are travelers I am including the below wireless information for your travels.
I use Verizon Wireless for my Internet connection and Kingsburg, California had a good signal as did most of the Central Valley along the California 99 Highway. Of course when I went into the mountains to visit Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park I lost all service.
I use Sprint for my Cell Phone (Voice Communications) I had a solid signal except when I went into the mountains to visit Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park where I lost all service.
