Last night we set up on Site C-10 for two nights in the El Chorro County Park after being unable to find the campground we’d initially picked out on our Allstays app. It’s a pleasant place though not quite as convenient for our major purpose for coming to SLO and that’s to get new rear brakes for Eric. We contacted Perry Ford last night and Jesse promised that he’d work us into the schedule and even offered us a shuttle ride the five miles back to the T@B. As it worked out we spent a couple pleasant hours in the waiting being regaled with tales of life in California in the entertainment industry in the 1960s and 70s by one Robert Applegate.  He didn’t tell us about his daughter’s episode on Who Do You Think You Are? We discovered that later while googling him!

Once the pads and rotors were installed we made our way to Margie’s Diner where we shared a monster salad then to Ralph’s to restock the larder. Bonus! Ralph’s is part of the Kroger family so we snagged a pint of Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chip! After a quiet afternoon we spent a pleasant evening with Dennis and Marina sharing libations, snacks, and travel stories. Although we didn’t explore the cool history of SLO and its mission, this stay has been a good chance to start getting back into our groove after a most exciting interlude with Lou!
