Jul 6, 2009 - Arlington, OR

Spending the night along side the Columbia River in a small town called Arlington at the Port of Arlington Marina RV Park. Stopped to see my brother! The wind is blowing 40+ MPH, the site is too narrow to even put out two slides. It sucks! I was up today at 4:30am because of the wind noise. We'll never stay HERE again! I was GREAT to spend time with my brother and his son even though it was only for a couple of hours. The last time I saw either of these guys was 10 years ago. Time goes by so swiftly. It was SO windy in Arlington, that we...

Sep 18, 2006 - Drive to Oregon

Today's journey took the road less traveled. In other words roads that were really off the main drag. The trip today left the Seattle area and headed south and east into Oregon.

Aug 6, 2006 - Part 5 Oregon Trail

We have started our odyssey east on the Oregon Trail, or one of the many Oregon Trails, along the Columbia River. We drove over the densely wooded Coastal Mountains to camp south of Portland. We tried to camp at Champoeg (pronounced SHAM POO EE) State Park where we had camped last year, but they were full. So we stayed at a trashy commercial RV park nearby. We did some shopping at Camping World and Trader Joe's. The most important purchase was 2 cases of Charles Shaw chardonnay (called Three Buck Chuck in Oregon). It makes a fine vin...
