Bishop to Susanville CA

We were up at 6:30 this morning for the drive to Susanville from Bishop.  Unlike last year there were no long backups for construction or large accidents.  It's a pretty drive.  The road is up down, up down and very curvy.  It's not a route that lends itself to going fast.  Jim has modified his driving style on the curvy downhills so that I no longer feel like we are hurtling towards our deaths.

We got stopped at the agricultural inspection station in California.  It's the first time in awhile that we've seen one staffed, much less been pulled over.  The guy fondled my apples and oranges but did not confiscate them.  He asked about firewood and pets in the truck (!).  So we have our yellow inspection ticket which we are required to keep until we exit California.  It was sort of anticlimactic.
Note to self:  There is a Shell station at exit 80 that is RV accessible.  Next time, go there!  The station at Bordertown is ok, but the Shell is a better location. 
We're staying at the Susanville RV Park again.  It's just a delightful park.  Sites are paved and level.  Staff is very nice and it's easy on easy off from 395.  It's an excellent overnight.
