The eBay Part of This Trip Is Working!

Signed Robert Eickholt Paperweight

Sunday, February 20, 2011 ~ Cloverdale, CA

Yesterday was a long day of driving. It was pretty uneventful except for how gorgeous it was to drive from Trinidad to Cloverdale, a town in Sonoma County that's about 105 miles north of San Francisco. I stuck to Hwy 101 most of the time, except for occasionally getting off for fuel or a rest, and I was amazed at what I saw. I moved from the deep dark Redwood forests to the lighter, slightly warmer vineyards of Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. How many climates and geographies does California have, anyway?! It's amazing!

Last night I stayed at the Russian River Thousand Trails resort which is part of one of my timeshare campground memberships. Just $10 per night for a place that has hookups, showers, Internet, etc. Can't beat it!

I haven't spent a lot of time working my eBay business yet on this trip, because I've been learning the ropes of living in a motorhome. But what I've done has been paying off. The paperweight shown above is something I found at a thrift shop for a few dollars, and it's worth at least $50 to most collectors. But I'll be happy with whatever I get, since I made such a great frugal find!

  1. A good way to earn a few dollars. Lightweight items that fit in a small RV are also easy to mail.

  2. I guess that you are back on the road again. Call tonight and catch up, ok?
