Hey there Campers:

We are off to another Brandy Adventure, We have decided to just stay in the west. Did 
you know that in the old days everything west of the Mississippi was considered as "The West"?

Lo and I started off with prayer. We take turns driving 100 miles each.  I like to start off driving to get my first 100 miles done. I drove to the corner street and went to turn right. A car was coming in the opposite lane just as I went to turn. The Hilton needs lots of space to turn. I cut the corner too short and Lo is yelling STOP, STOP.  The next thing I see is The Hilton and my car Connie is next to the corner sign pole.  (Someone needs more lesson in turning.) Small scratch on the Hilton and Connie. Not to worry. Buffing will take of them off. Lo did a great job in correcting my mistake.

Did you notice my Watermelon shirt??? My sis Vonne made it for me in 1994. And I can still get in it. Yahoo! Thanks VK.

Yikeees....Highway 5 was a challenge. They were doing construction from exit 307 to exit 305. Better be careful when driving this area. Your car could fall into the cut out squares and me lost for days.

We decided to stop in Buttonwillow for dinner and call it a night.  

Question of the day

Do you know what Buttonwillow is known for???

Look it up and let me know

Well, until the next time Campers......

Lo & Bren


  1. (HAH! I am here before RITA!!!)
    I think Buttonwillow is known for the periodic horrific smell of cattle, but I guess it's known for the toxic waste dump there that no one knew about until it was too late... which is pretty tragic.

  2. Well, this time Ms TANITA - ahahahahahahaaha. Let the game begin :)

    Here is what I learned about Buttonwillow:

    The town was originally called Buena Vista when it was laid out in 1895, but the name quickly became Buttonwillow.[3]

    Buttonwillow was named for the buttonbush, (Cephalanthus occidentalis). A lone buttonbush served as a landmark on an old trans-valley trail, and was used by ancient Yokut Indian as a meeting place, later becoming the site of settlers' stock rodeos. The Miller-Lux holdings company eventually established a headquarters and store near the tree. [5] This tree is listed as California Historical Landmark No. 492. This landmark is now known as the Buttonwillow Tree

  3. You both are correct. Wow let the history games begin.
