Oct 11, 2013 - Pendleton, Oregon

We spent an extra day in Pendleton Oregon to visited the Pendleton Mills, historic Pendleton Roundup Rodeo stadium, historic pendleton to include Hamley's a western store that has been in business for over 80 years and is world famous for their saddles. We also were able to spend some time with Marty Imhoff, unfortunately Sue Ann was not in town, it had been way to many years since we last saw them, eleven to be exact, it was great catching up on old times, their adventures since we last saw each other to include their sons, Michael and David.

Sep 21, 2013 - Pendleton, Oregon

We drove as far as Pendleton, OR and just kicked back and relaxed a couple of days. We went to see the Pendleton Woolen Mills Outlet, because while we worked at Yellowstone, we sold lots of BEAUTIFUL Pendleton Blankets and other items, and our curiosity got the best of us and we wanted to check it out. We couldn't get through the street because a house right near there had caught on fire and they had the entire few blocks blocked off. We returned later, everything was still blocked off, so we parked and walked to the outlet. However nothing...

/// Pendleton KOA Pendleton, OR Monday - September 16, 2013 Low Temperature: 66 degrees High Temperature: 76 degrees A Travel Day: We departed Clarkston, WA by 9:30 AM. We really enjoyed our stay at the Granite Lake RV Resort but it was an expensive place to stay. Our route today took us west on US 12 to Walla Walla, WA and then south into Oregon. We arrived at the Pendleton KOA RV Park at 1:30 PM after covering a distance of 140 miles. We stopped just twice, once to kick the tires and our second stop was for lunch. The route involved more...

UPDATE 7/21/2013 - Photos added of the Pendleton Underground Tour. In large part a cow town and a commercial center of Oregon, Pendleton epitomized the image of wild-west a hundred years back or so. This historic Oregon town was once a hot bed for drug related activities, prostitution and other illegal activities, carried out in large parts by the Chinese immigrants that were working the railroads. Once a controversial tour, the Pendleton Underground Tour has come to be featured in popular magazines, radio shows and other places. After all,...

Jul 19, 2013 - Oregon

First full day in Pendleton. It is surprisingly, a big city. We are camped on the mountain outside town, but only 1 mile from the main drag. Headed into town because it is 100 degrees today and we have no pool at this KOA. Luckily, there is a community pool 5 minutes away that only costs 5$ for adults and 4$ for kids for the DAY!!! Off we go and have to leave Ed and Ajax behind to fend for themselves. Find the pool and it is very nice. Really 3 pools and Hot tub area. Don't need the hot tub today that is for sure. The first pool has two...

Jun 1, 2013 - WildHorse Casino RV Park

We are in Pendleton, Oregon, staying at the "WildHorse Resort and Casino". US395 to Pendleton was long, time wise, and exhausting. We stopped at Canyon City so Anna could get pictures of the mural and statues. We ate lunch in John Day City, our first dine-out.(McDonalds $17) No wonder we don't eat out. We took a break @ Battle Mountain Picnic area. Leaving tomorrow for Kennewick, WA only 75 miles....

May 14, 2013 - Where the heck is Hermiston?

We said goodbye & thanks for the hospitality to Bart & Suzi this morning & headed east thru the Columbia River Gorge. We'd planned to stay on the Washington side of the river all the way but as we approached the Bridge of the Gods at Cascade Locks there were signs saying there is a narrow low tunnel ahead & vehicles over 13'2" should cross to the Oregon side of the river - so we had to cross & make most of the trip on the Oregon side of the river. The Columbia River is dams & barges - as you'll see in our pics. Watching the terrain change...

Mar 27, 2013 - Mountain Home to Pendelton

Got up and on the road by 7 am, will stop in a bit. Take exit 3 on hwy 84 & hwy 30, Chevron, A&W, there is room to park nearby. could boon dock at green and white building. The hill and switch backs into Pendelton can be a challenge, 6% grade for 6 miles( 9 kms ). After this i will definitely have to get additional brakes in the car. Arrived at Wild Horse Casino early one. Of Course we met a few Snowbirds as we drove in, they were quite hospitable.

Aug 30, 2012 - Goodbye Coolness; Hello Heat

We have finally left the coolness of the coast and the Columbia River and began our trek which will eventually take us back down to Texas. Labor Day weekend is the turning point for us. By then, we have reached our farthest summer destination and we begin the journey back south. -- As previously planned, our first destination today was to return to Autumn's Auto Lube in Vancouver, WA, for an oil change and general check up on the rig. I drove the car and John followed me in the rig. We got an early start because we weren't sure how bad the...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Jul 26, 2012 - Mountain time

We were moving a little slow today, but we knew in about 30 minutes on the road we would be gaining another hour as we crossed over into Pacific time, so we weren't in a rush. I think we were the last ones to leave the campground. It is interesting to see how early folks start pulling out, they must be on some sort of a time schedule. We just sit and watch as we eat our breakfast. Lisa wasn't paying attention today and missed the welcome to Oregon sign, bummer!. We traveled along I-84 and crossed over into our most western state for this...

Heading West

Jul 25, 2012 - Pendelton, OR

We decided to overnight for the last time near Pendleton. The long hill east of Pendleton is difficult, and we would not like to face high winds in the gorge, and then heavy Portland traffic after that. So we stopped at an RV park that is part of the Pilot Truck Stop. A very nice park, no noise, and the truck stop has fast food places for breakfast. Very nice.

Jul 17, 2012 - Pendleton, Oregon

After having a great time in Crescent, Oregon & surrounding areas, we hitched up the 5th-wheel (that's how you talk here in the west)& pointed the truck in the direction of Pendleton, Oregon. We stayed at the Wild Horse Casino Resort/Hotel/RV Park. We spent time (off & on) in the casino, I think Pete left a little money behind...but not much & I came out ahead by a moderate amount (which is unusual for me). The resort has a golf course which Pete was able to play a couple of times while we were there. Of course....ever the social butterfly...
