May 6, 2017 - Day 07 - Coburg to McKenzie Bridge, OR

Today's ride was a 56-mile jaunt from Coburg to McKenzie Bridge, OR. The total ascent was 1,818'. McKenzie Bridge (elevation 1,621’) is a small, unincorporated community on the McKenzie River and within the Willamette National Forest. The first leg of the ride followed McKenzie View Drive as it snakes along the McKenzie River for about 18 miles to Walterville. This was a truly breathtaking section of ride with very little traffic. During this section, at about mile 10, I crossed the Mohawk River and was greeted with serenading bullfrogs for...

Sep 27, 2012 - Windshield Issues, a Faire, and a Lot in McKenzie

Starting Tuesday we made calls to GMAC (our Insurance Carrier) and RV Glass Solutions the windshield installer(aka a-1 Glass and Coach Glass). GMAC said any warranty would be by the installer but they assigned a RV Damage Specialist to review and assist with our problem. RV Glass Solutions did not want to warrant the installation because it was a stress crack and they do not normally warrant stress cracks since that is a coach problem. After a discussion with the GMAC Specialist they agreed to warrant the windshield but after installation...

Day 211 Sunday 9th November McKenzie Bridge Oregon We left our over-nite camp this morning, without anyone asking us to move along, which is always nice, in steady rain which lasted most of the morning.

The nearby Cascade Mountains range has three large mountains all over 10,000’ and they are called the Three Sisters, hence the name. We were debating which route to take to McKenzie Bridge;...

This is one of six huge National Forests that collectively make up the Cascade Mountain Range….the last natural barrier to the Pacific Ocean and the West Coast. These giant mountains, reaching heights from 10,000 to 14,000 feet, are strung out from Canada southward to California. Instead of being the barrier they once were, they are now a place of beauty and recreation. Well maintained roads make transiting the area a...

Sep 1, 2007 - McKenzie Bridge, OR

After the Ducks game, we moved the rig up to McKenzie Bridge, up in the mountains along the McKenzie river. The campground had just opened and almost empty - the word hadn't spread yet. That was our good fortune since this was the Labor Day weekend and most campgrounds were full. The scenery around was wonderful, with mountain streams, covered bridges, and mountain passes. We spent the first afternoon exploring the immediate area and found a neat restaurant serving a buffet outdoors and hosting a summer concert featuring local talent. Next...
