Oct 4, 2016 - Boardman, Oregon

Yes, it is the 1st of the month, and yes, I have been neglectful. I think maybe this will be my M.O. until things get better with us. We left Washington yesterday and are staying in Boardman, Oregon. This is the most beautiful RV park we have ever stayed in! Right on the Columbia River...beautiful spot, on green, green grass, huge site...love it here. Here is the website. If you look at the photos to the right you will get an idea of what other sites look like. Boardman Marina RV Park About that diet I said I was going on...well, my dear...

Yippee Tyo's!

Apr 22, 2016 - Boardman, OR

Near Umatilla is a little town called Boardman. There we went to a place called the Sage Center. It is like a science center and describes local industries, what they do, or how they make what they do. We have been seeing a lot of potato farming around. They are now planting seed potatoes. In Grant County Washington, we were told that it was the largest potato producing county in the states. So we were intrigued. We saw a series of agricultural objects to ID. One of them to me looked like a big bobber for a fishing line. It was a Rubber...

Mar 30, 2016 - Boardman Marina/RV Park

The weather just keeps improving. After a beautiful day going thru the hills of eastern Oregon with the sun warming us with every mile. Then we hit the big dropping switch back that makes the Osooyos hill look like a mole hill. It has 4 truck runaway lanes just to give you an idea of its size. Then throw in 90 plus degree switchback as you go down hill quickly. We went by a base called Umatilla Army Depot, I saw it last year and didn't think too much of it, but this time I looked it up online, you all should too, there is some bad stuff...

New route 15/16

Oct 23, 2015 - Boardman, OR

There was a little frost on the truck as we hooked up this morning. We headed up I-84. Our usual stop is Umatilla Marina and RV Park, but we have been wanting to try the Boardman Marina and RV Park so made reservations for two nights there. This is a beautiful park set in the trees and sits right on the Columbia River with nearly 100 sites. This looks to be a family destination park. It appears that this is a reservation only park as there is no one to check you in upon arrival. Your reservation and site number are listed on a board as you...

Balloon Fiesta 2015

Jun 7, 2015 - Coeur d'Alene, ID and Boardman, OR

June 6, 2015 First I would like to say, "Thank you" to all the men and women who have served in our Military and given us the freedoms we enjoy! This is the 71st Anniversary of the D-Day Invasion. I miss watching and listening to Charles Durning on this Holiday. The drive from Kalispell, MT to Coeur d'Alene, ID was interesting. There are two seasons in the Northwest. Winter and construction! There is a LOT of roadwork going on. It was not as bad as from Canada to Kalispell, if you remember the unpaved road, but lots happening. At one...

Canadian Tour-2015

Mar 25, 2015 - Boardman Marina/RV Park

Well folks another enjoyable day on this new route to the homeland. Left at 10AM and within 3 miles it was 9AM so another hour gained to enjoy the day. We continued the ascent up the Blue Mountains till there was 8 or 10 inches of snow on the ground but rain was in the air so rig got a bit of a rinse. Then the descent down the other side not as bad as Osoyoos but a good one none the less. More cheap gas to be had still, 2.29/gal or 61c/ltr. We decided to stop here in Boardman, great idea, beautiful campground right on the Columbia River,...

Aug 27, 2014 - Day 4 - Longer than expected

Today was to be a 105 mile ride that became a 125 mile ride. A couple of us were riding with Dave, the route designer, when we came to a spot and we could not decide which way to go. Dave told us the direction - it was wrong and ,remember, he designed this ride. We wound up doing an extra 20 mile loop that included over a mile of gravel road. The gravel was packed so loose that my real wheel was sliding like crazy - it sucked but we all stayed upright. With the extra miles Walt and I still managed to get to the hotel before 5 or 6 other...

May 20, 2014 - Boardman, Oregon

Tuesday morning we bade farewell to the Cascade Mountains, pine forests and miles of chaparral and hello to hill country and the most extraordinary skies! Our coach is 12’8” high and 50 feet long, making truck stops are the appropriate fueling choice. This particular Pilot contained a McDonalds directly after exiting the pump lanes. Truckers felt free to stop after fueling to walk to the truck stop’s McDonalds for take-out thereby blocking the exit for those at the pumps. Eventually they returned with their take-out order and exited. Most...

our 2013 spring trip

Oct 14, 2010 - Boardman Marina & RV Park

Our friends Gordon & Juanita have told us about this beautiful spot in Boardman and today we are set up and enjoying the views. Bev has not been feeling well, so we stopped after only a few miles to give her a chance to rest. This is a great spot to do that, with fall colors and river views right next to our site, it is very peaceful and restful, almost as well groomed as Margie's. On our journey today with hooking up went well, everything that should be on was on and everything that should be off was off. Life is so simple when it works...

Dream On

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...
