More about the house

Went to see the house with George the other day and met my neighbor Bill: super nice guy.  George suggested that we walk up before attempting the drive.  Many of the people here at El Chace have been up to the house and they all said there was no way Dod could make it without the help of a back hoe.  After walking up the road I can understand their concerns.

After walking the road I can tell you that I think Dod will make it up without assistance.  The part where most RV climbing attempts fail is nothing compared to some of the places Dod has already been.  However, there is a section of road with gullies 12 to 18" deep.  They run the same way the road does so I want to fill them in before I go up because a broken axle could really spoil my day.

If you look closely you can see Ms. Tioga up the beach at El Chaco RV Resort.  It is less than a 15 minute walk from El Chaco to the house.  As  always seems to be the case I take a very long time deciding how to proceed with projects so I have decided to spend a month at El Chaco before moving Dod up to the house.  I don't want to rush anything because I am in a country that never rushes!

There is a perfect place for Dod to park just below the patio where the view from all three rear windows is ocean.


  1. heyya dave,

    i agree with you - you will not need a backhoe to get to the Bird House. You will notice a couple of motorhomes there, well, i drove them up unassisted. good luck.

  2. That sounds like a good plan, glad Dod will be able to make it up the driveway. How's Sarah doing?
