Kathleen and Paul are owners and live on site. So you'll get quick response to your needs and access to your washer/dryer in the basement.

Your apartment is only 100 feet from Grand Avenue and only 100 more to beautiful Lake Merritt where the winter birds are arriving. And runners abound.

Your Saturday Farmer's Market is closeby under/around I-580. Trader Joe's is just a few more feet. Whole Foods Market is walkable from your apartment. Sprouts Farmers Market is on Broadway and Safeway is closeby on Grand Ave.

Then there's the classic Grand Lake Theater. You'll find many good restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore. Walking Grand Ave and Lakeshore at night always reminds me of the Left Bank of Paris.

This area truly is a gem and Kathleen and I are glad and happy to live here. You will be too.


3/24/04 - Mulege to Guerrero Negro


It is with special pleasure that we introduce Charity Avera as today’s Guest Editor.

Charity and John are exceptional southerners. They hail from North Alabama and the two of them are frequently “the life of the party” around here! Charity enjoys dancing and having fun. John enjoys watching his effervescent wife keep the rest of us in stitches!

They have a son, John B. Avera III who lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

Their daughter, Arispah Elise (Lispah) Hogan lives in Houston, Texas with John’s and Charity’s two grandchildren. Abbey is 14 and Ryder will be 10 on April 19th.

As Charity affirms (and as we can all imagine) there’s never a dull moment at the Avera house!


Wednesday, March 24.

We depart from Mulege – and Maria’s R.V. Park - after four wonderful days.

We left this beautiful area for Guerrero Negro in small groups. Our leaders were Gene and Connie Ross (who hail from Holdemess, New Hampshire.) They were great for reporting the cows and holes, etc. along the way - making our trip safe. Thanks from us and Bill and June Calvert and Myrine McKinney (Grandmother).



The first forty miles took us back to Santa Rosalia, the town we visited on the day before. It was an old French-built town where they mined copper and manganese and closed down in 1990. They had wooden buildings and a unique church, designed by Gustave Effel, who built the tower in Paris.

At 50 miles out we went up a steep, windy upgrade which had breath taking views and drop offs all along the way.



When we reached the top, we were on the great high prairie.



Larry Tolin, our Wagonmaster told us the prairie was in full bloom with flowers. Well, all I could find was lava rocks, cactus, and sand for miles and miles.



Eventually we made a curve, and finally we saw the flowers! For the next 50 miles, the landscape was in full color. We saw reds, pinks, white and yellow flowers, and my favorite, purple.



The military check points were great. “Hello” and “Goodbye.” The trucks were great, too! They stayed on their side of the narrow road, not like the stories we had heard about.

As we came into Guerrero Negro, we went from South Baja to North Baja, around the Eagle Monument, into Ejido Benito Juarez Trailer Park – back in South Baja!

We set up our rigs and a few of the group went to eat out at Mario’s Restaurant. They served the best food we’ve had so far!

The building was round and made out of palms and dry cactus.

This closed another day on our trip through Mexico.

John and I wish to thank all of our caravaners for your thoughts and prayers for our daughter, Lispah.

All is fine!
Charity Avera

10/19 - IT IS SO much easier to blame other people, conditioning, or conditions for our own stagnant situation. But we are responsible--"response-able"--to control our lives and to powerfully influence our circumstances by working on be, on what we are. - from 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
