Our first stop on this mini-vacation was Berkeley, CA. The city of Berkeley sits on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay. Berkeley is home to the oldest campus in the University of California system, the University of California, Berkeley, which was founded in 1868.
The city of Heidelberg is located about 48 miles south of Frankfurt on the Neckar River. The village of Bergheim, which now lies at the heart of modern Heidelberg, was first mentioned in documents dated 769 AD. The founding of Heidelberg is considered to be 1196 when that name was referred to in a document in Schönau Abbey, a 12th century monastery.
Freiburg was founded in 1120 as a free market town. Its name would generally be translated as “a fortified town of free citizens”. The town was strategically located at a junction of trade routes between the Mediterranean Sea and the North Sea regions, and the Rhine and Danube rivers.
We need/want to make a 3 week trip back to Los Angeles in order to take care of some health and dental checkups and to visit with family and friends. This requires that we stash the motorhome somewhere while we make the trip. The plan we developed was to park it at a storage lot near my sister’s house in Tullahoma, TN, spend a few days with her, my nieces and great nephews before flying out of Nashville.
