Pete & Jan's Travels

Apr 21, 2016 - Pendleton, OR

About 45 minutes south of us, is Pendleton. We drove down there to see the Woolen Mill again. We did this tour last year but decided to see it again since we were so close. They have a lot of big jacquard looms in there. They can weave a blanket in only 8 minutes. They actually make them on continuous rolls and they are cut apart later. We also did the Pendleton Underground Tour. This was really well done. The tour guide was great and it was a fun group we were with. We went through 70 years of history in the cellars and tunnels. We saw...

Apr 15, 2016 - Pendleton Oregon

Our plans today will be go to the casino and take in a movie since they have a Cineplex on site. The movie we saw was The Boss, which was not our type of humor. It did have some good parts but it was way overboard for us. Went into the casino but just couldn’t bring ourselves to wager our money away, I can blow money in a more enjoyable activity. Decided that we would go back to the motorhome and grill some burgers since the weather was great. A young couple pulled in next to us with a 5th wheeler and it was their first time out with it,...

2016 Westward HO

Apr 14, 2016 - Pendleton Oregon

We were almost homeless for Friday night but we are able to extend our stay here at Wildhorse Resort and Casino. We drove to the city of Pendleton to take in the sights. The issue is most of the sights entail walking a great distance which is out of my life. I feel bad because Candy wants to see these spots but won’t go. I keep telling her to take the tours but she will not. We did stop at the Pendleton Mill Factory to check it out. Found out there was nothing that we could afford, $130.00 for a flannel shirt is a little too pricey for me....

2016 Westward HO

Apr 13, 2016 - Pendleton Oregon

As our stay in the Seattle area comes to a close we will pull out and travel Interstate 90 east to Interstate 82 South and Interstate 84 to Pendleton Oregon. We will be staying at the Wildhorse Resort & Casino which has an RV park also. This sure is better than the KOA we just stayed at. Our drive thru the Cascade Mountain range was very relaxing since the highest peak we had to cross was only 3600 ft. with a very gradual climb. Driving across the mountains was just beautiful, the rolling hills with not rocks or trees just wanted you to...

2016 Westward HO

Nov 28, 2015 - Pendleton, Oregon

We were on the road again early this morning. We drove another 300 miles to Pendleton, Oregon. The drive took us pass the Snake River in Idaho before arriving in Oregon. The most exciting part of the drive today was crossing Deadman Pass. Here is a paste of information about this pass from Google. Deadman Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 3,631ft (1.107m) above the sea level, located in Oregon, USA. Drivers attempting to negotiate the pass are in for a challenge: Heading northwest, you're forced to climb more than 2,000 feet in...

Sep 4, 2015 - September 4, 2015 - Twentieth Stop - Pendleton, OR

Today we drove along the Columbia River on I 84 almost all day. Most of the time it was through the Columbia River Gorge with mountains (at least very high hills) on both sides. Between the bare areas were some spots of green, many of which were vineyards. At mile Marker 130 we passed a barge pushed by a tug boat up the river. which is really quite wide. At several points there were sections with a large number of fishing boats, frequently at shoal areas. The boats would be lined up in rows across the river with five to ten rows. They...

Aug 25, 2015 - Pendleton Woolen Mills and Tamastslikt museum

We took the tour of the woolen mill - this is the original location and blankets are woven here. Quite a tour as we saw how the wool is spun into yarn and then blankets are woven on both old and new machines. We took quite a bit of time to look at the seconds in the back as well as the extensive collection of clothing in the front and almost bought a blanket - just could not decide what pattern to buy and didn't. We then went to the Wildhorse casino that has a very nice campground. We would have stayed there except they could not give us 50...

2015 Eagle trip

Aug 25, 2015 - Hells Gate SP / Wildfire Detour

Hells Gate State Park is located south of Lewiston Idaho, at the entrance of Hells Canyon, the deepest canyon in North America. The canyon was carved by the Snake River. Hells Gate has the lowest elevation of an Idaho state park, at 733 feet above sea level. My original route from Lewiston to Boise was to take US-95 South. BUT, the Tepee Springs Fire just east of US-95 was just to risky. I will head West on US-12 to Pendleton OR, then southeast on I-84 to Boise. inciweb.nwcg.gov Detour of 95 miles, SAFE MILES!!!...

2015 RV Adventure

Aug 24, 2015 - Pendleton underground and Happy Canyon

We are about 2 miles from everything here at the Pendleton KOA. Unfortunately we are also still in the smoke zone so we can't see too far, at least we can't smell it but don't get a good feel for the mountains around us. This KOA is jam packed full each night and we were fortunate to get a spot for satellite reception, however there is very little room on either side of us. We took the underground tour - a 2 hour tour that goes to areas occupied in the late 1800's. There were gambling and speak easy establishments in the basements under...

2015 Eagle trip

May 28, 2015 - Pendleton, Oregon

Hello from Pendleton, Oregon ! On Tuesday we left Springville, Utah early in the morning. Our original plan was to travel to Winnemucca, Nevada for an overnight stay & that plan changed, we decided to drive all the way to Pendleton. Our travels took us 600 + miles, it was raining when we hit the road, no big deal...then we got just outside of Provo... & holy cow !! The rain was coming down hard & the spray from all the vehicles made it even worse, but Pete handled it like a pro. Once getting out of the rain we were able to relax & look at...

Pete & Jan's Travels

Apr 30, 2015 - Pendleton Oregon

We had spent the night in Stanfied Oregon, and in the morning we left the trailer at the campground and drove into Pendleton, home of the famous Pendleton Roundup. The roundup is in the fall. We took a tour of the Pendleton Woolen Mill where they use their big jacquard looms and make a twin size wool blanket in only 20 minutes. And they have a LOT of looms! They receive the wool which is washed, and some pre-dyed in Washougal, then sent to Pendleton where it is combed, spun and plied into yarn. The jacquard looms are computerized and know...
