Jul 15, 2016 - Fairview, Oregon

We left Kennewick around 0900 and shortly after leaving the campground we tried to get a campground for Friday in Salem but it was full. We did get a spot for two days in Fairview, Oregon which is about 10 miles east of Portland. We were able to get a spot here for two nights only and there are no heavy truck shops open on the weekends so I can't get the motorhome serviced here. We have been successful in obtaining reservations in Corburg, Oregon for three days and hopefully I will be able to get the motorhome serviced at either the...

Aug 25, 2014 - Fairview Portland RV Park review

Heard about this place from people camped next to us in Astoria. It's on the south east side of Portland, which is good to avoid the Portland traffic and also close the Columbia Gorge. Nice clean park with a lot of full timers, but with nice rigs and not much clutter. No fire pits. Nice clean pool, no hot tub. AT&T and Verizon both had about 2-3 bars, ok, but slow. Parks Internet was bad, not worth even trying. Our dish worked fine. They put us in spot 39, which is next to the main road for most the park to come and go, so we had a bit of...

Jul 24, 2014 - No surgery required!!!

The primary purpose for returning to Portland is for medical care. We are establishing our primary care there for now and I needed to get the report from my ortho. doc on my knee. We checked into the Portland Fairview RV Park and although it is full, it is a very nice place with all of the necessary amenities. On Thursday I had my MRI and then Monday we met with the doctor for the results. First I must say this is the most efficiently run physician office I have ever been in. From the time we parked the car until we returned to the car...

Jul 16, 2014 - Portland Fairview RV Park

Back over the Coast Range Mountains into Portland today and the weather is a bit more agreeable than a few days ago. We are staying at the Portland Fairview RV Park in the east burbs just off Sandy Blvd. A very nice park and one we'll likely return to for extended stays while in this area. My visit to the orthopedist was the beginning of determining what the problem might entail with my knee. Waiting for an MRI which will happen later than sooner, so I guess that means my life isn't in imminent danger. Our newest friends are now Gary and...

Oct 4, 2013 - The Wait

BAU Date 10/4/13 The BAU is still in the shop being worked on. The fire damage may finally get finished tomorrow. We still won’t be able to leave because it also needs a new alternator. Maybe Monday. We did find a car. It’s a 2009 Toyota Yaris sedan. Only 57.000 miles, which is less than the Scion had on it. Nice little car. 40 MPG on the highway. Probably 500 MPG or so when it’s being towed. ☺ It is having a tow bar and braking system installed so it too is unavailable. The shop has given us a loner to use. It’s a Chevy Lumina circa 1902....

Sep 14, 2013 - Eugene and On to Fairview, Or

We have left Gold Beach or Thursday as planned and traveled north to Eugene OR, primarily to get a new computer for yours truly. I have been fighting with my old computer since we were in El Mirage (oh my gosh – it’s about time!!) Figured I might as well get one in a state with no sales tax. I got an all-in-one with a 23 inch screen. I love it, but Windows 8 takes some getting used to (man, he’s got that right – the words flying around here while he’s been learning could burn a sailors ears!) I think I will like it and got almost all of my...

Aug 9, 2013 - Oregon Scenic Byway - Day 70

August 9, 2013...Historic Oregon Hwy. 30. We left the Portland-Fairview RV Park and stopped to stock up on groceries and gasoline. We turned onto US Hwy. 30 East, the Organic Scenic Byway through the Columbia Gorge. We stopped at waterfalls along the route. There were many other tourists on this route today. What a beautiful drive through the tree-shaded road which parallels I-84 much of the way. At the end of the byway, we merged onto I-84 East.

Jul 19, 2013 - Fairview again

My pleasure was to be able to reconnect with friends at the Troutdale Community Church with whom we, one day, joined a group who took our pistols out to a forest service area for some target practice. Well organized, it felt very safe. On another day, Dan and I drove up to Mt. St. Helen's and another day took us to the Portland Rose Garden.

Jul 1, 2013 - July 2013

This month includes the first half of a 10 day trip to Colorado, which I took with a bunch of other folks in the Bergie ski (outdoor) club. Our primary destination locations were Manitou Springs, Mt. Crested Butte, Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and Grand Lake. While there were lots of photos taken, I'll try to show some of the highlights without getting too carried away, although this will be a little tough.

Mar 21, 2013 - John Day to Fairview (home)

Day 67 (am temp 30.2) John Day to Fairview – Home again Well, needless to say, the adventure continued ‘till the last day. What was expected to be a ho-hum trip through Oregon, was a little more than that. Note: This is a little long, and I suppose it’s one of those “you had to be there” types, so read at your own risk. The day began normally enough, following the John Day River westerly to Service Creek, where the river continues westward, while the highway turns northwest. Rather than stay on 26, I opted to take Hwy 19 , then cut off at...

Mar 11, 2013 - New location, same locale

We moved from the Sandy River RV Park a few miles west toward Portland to the Fairview RV Park. This was a much larger park which had nice amenities - none of which we used. The "long term" - month long+ tenants, such as ourselves, were placed in the lowest of three tiers. This was very close to the railroad tracks. Only this time, unlike the sweet, distant sound and nice view of the train we had at Sandy RV, this train was extremely noisy, rumbled and shook the ground, and frequently blew it's loud horn at ALL times of the day and night....

Jul 27, 2012 - Columbia River Gorge

We were moving early this morning, it must be that pacific time change. After a leisurely morning enjoying the sunshine, we were on the road by 9:30 heading west on I-84. It wasn't long before we found ourselves driving along a beautiful river, the Columbia River, which we'd last seen years ago in Canada, while traveling with Lisa's parents. The river got bigger and the hills turned into mountain cliffs as we entered into the Columbia River Gorge. We past the John Day Dam, the Dalles Dam and the Bonneville Dam, all spectacular! There were...
