Apr 17, 2010 - At home only a few feet from Columbia River
. So, we drove the 212-mile distance from Salem to Boardman, Oregon today and into a completely different landscape and climate. We were up at our usual time and on the road by about 8:30 AM. The weather was perfect for an eastward drive through the Columbia River Gorge with partly cloudy skies, no rain and only a slight tailwind pushing us further inland. The air temperature reached an astronomical 74 degrees this afternoon! The Gorge is always beautiful with several large waterfalls and the huge Columbia River winding its way through...Jump to full entry
Aug 28, 2009 - Boardman, OR
Our final stop was at the Boardman City Park. The park is located on the Columbia River and has a nice path along the river, marina, beach, green grass, big trees and a beautiful sunset to boot. There is usually a good breeze and it just seems to be so relaxing.Jump to full entry
Jul 28, 2009 - Boise, Idaho to Boardman, Ore.
It seemed like a good idea. It was Day 39 of this 43-day trip. We shunned the two-lane highways, traveling by interstate more than any travel day on this trip. With the lure of home clouding our judgment, we cut some corners. It turned out to be our biggest mileage day of the trip, the first to break 300. And when we were done, we realized we had gone too far. But instead of turning back, we made the best of it. We left Boise, bound for either Walla Walla, Wash., or Pendleton, Ore. We wanted to see where the day would take us. We made good...Jump to full entry
Jun 14, 2009 - The journey of a thousand miles....
or 6000 miles starts with a drive from Depoe Bay to Portland, for a lovely early Father's Day lunch with Jim, Sarah, Max and Jax. Camped at Boardman City Park in Boardman, Oregon ($23.85). This spacious, tree-filled campground on the Columbia River has become a traditional stop when we head east.Jump to full entry
May 28, 2009 - Columbia River and Oregon
A beautiful campground right on the Columbia River and fantastic weather have made our short stay in Oregon very pleasant. Boardman isn’t near any big city, so the stars were beautiful. Getting here was an uneventful trip. The only exciting episode was spiraling down a mountain. We went down a 6% grade for 6 miles. As you went around the mountain, you could look down on where you would soon arrive. It was one of those times when we were really appreciative of having the freightliner to haul the RV. We did take a 180 mile bike ride down the...Jump to full entry
Aug 21, 2008 - Leg 14, Boardman, OR.
Arrived in Boardman Marina & RV Park around 1PM. Weather was windy 30 knts out of the West, temp 75F, sky p/cloudy w/pos rain later. Had an early start from Clarkston due to bad weather, high winds and rain most of the trip down to Walla Walla, then just high X winds the rest of the way to Boardman. We were surprised when we arrived in Boardman RV Park. The park was nice and clean w/grass, right on the Columbia River. Full hook-ups w/50 Amp service, and at a good price too. We were expecting some high priced broken down RV park out in the...Jump to full entry
Jul 27, 2008 - Columbia River
July 27-28: We had a wonderful, relaxing time in Boardman, Oregon. Our RV site at the Boardman Marina & RV Park was right on the Columbia River. We rode our bikes on the 4 mile bike trail along the river and enjoyed “Music in the Park” jazz night which was next to our RV Park. We also sat along the river under the stars and saw several shooting stars. Now it's on to the Oregon Coast.Jump to full entry
Jun 4, 2008 - On the Oregon Trail
Made it to Boardman, Oregon today. Went through Baker and stopped to look for a rock shop that turned out was no longer there. Asked around about some places to go rockhounding, but everybody said that most everywhere was staked out and if we wanted to, we'd have to go 40-50 miles out of town. A little farther than we wanted to go. The town is quite small and driving this rig around while people stood and looked at us like “What the heck do you think your doing???” was not real fun. Managed to get through town and back out without hitting...Jump to full entry
Jun 14, 2007 - Day Forty Two
Left Whitefish at 11:30 AM, regretfully, this morning. Want to come back here as soon as possible - before the snow falls. Since Don and Inga both have jobs in Hood River now and a place to move to, maybe that will be possible. They still need to get their house sold. They can start moving next week because they are done with the Salem school system tomorrow. Don't know what the status of the house is in Hood River. We are going to drive by tomorrow and look at it on our way home. We are in Boardman, Oregon tonight and will stop by home...Jump to full entry
