Feb 18, 2012 - Phoenix, OR

Got up and around and headed out about 9 AM, we want to get over the pass early and hope the roads are good. Of course we checked the road conditions and all looked good. It was snowing on top but not enough to worry about. Guess what after we get into CA the sun is shinning? We even had to roll down a window, sure did feel good. MT Shasta was beautiful as always and it seems so close. We drove as far as Lodi, CA stopped around 3:30, enough hours of driving for one day. I think Jim has a hard time remembering that we just need to go where...

We resumed our trek south on Saturday, the 24th, trying to make sure that we stayed ahead of the impending Northwest rainy season.

The space that we were assigned was nicely shaded. A tranquil little stream with benches on which...

Once we passed Grants Pass, we found we didn't recognize any of the Rest Stops or landscape!!! Jo and I did manage to find a Great Clips in the local area and get our hair cut. The biggest highlight of this trip was the temperatures. 58 degrees in Ridgefield, and 92 in Pheonix, OR. Sure...

Apr 28, 2008 - Phoenix, OR

We woke to colder and wetter weather, just as forecasted. But that was okay, we had expected it and we were glad that we were already here in Oregon. We began the day by exploring Medford, which we found to be a fairly uninteresting city. Medford is the county seat with a population of about 63,000. Its economy centers around agriculture, specifically pears, peaches, grapes for wine and timber. So, it should come as no surprise that Harry and David is actually based in Medford. And, luckily for us, they have a tour! H&D is the second...
