Jul 2, 2015 - Day 36 June 28 20!% Homeward Bound

Day 36 June 28 2015 Homeward Bound Yes, we arrived home somewhere around 5 PM. The journey was over and it feels good to be home. At home you know pretty much what to expect, but out on the road each day is a new day, with different places to enjoy or not. There’s always good times and not so good times, fun or work. Non the less it was our journey and you lived it with us as you followed us each day. It was the two of us taking on this adventure each day we awoke. Sometimes we had a destination and other times we just found a place. Some...

Jul 2, 2015 - Day 34 June 26 2015 National Falls Creek OR

Day 34 June 26 2015 National Falls Creek This is our 3rd day here at National Falls Creek. It was 53 degrees this morning , getting warmer. Our air conditioner won’t run properly with our generator that they assured us it would. It works great on AC but for some reason it won’t handle high temperatures. It will start, but soon put the generator into overload. I headed out to try my luck again at fishing. I was getting some bites and caught one little fish I put back. A couple showed up and told me that they had just dropped some fish up...

Jul 2, 2015 - Day 33 June 25 2015 National Falls Creek OR

Day 33 June 25 2015 National Falls Creek OR We awoke to a crisp 44 degrees before the sun decided to welcome us. It’s going to be another warm beautiful day. After breakfast, we took a short walk than played a couple of card games. I than decided to try my luck at fishing again, so it was off to the river. No luck with the fish but I did however score a few mosquitoes and theses little yellow jacket type bees that like to pester me. Beryl and Jenny arrived around noon. We helped them get into a nice spot and set up. After they got settled...

Jul 2, 2015 - Day 32 June 24 National Falls Creek OR

Day 32 June 24 2015 National Creek Falls OR Isn’t it beautiful to wake up and see the sun filtering through the trees, like God is shining lights from heaven to show you the way. It was a crisp 48 degrees. After breakfast we headed down to Crater Creek to see how the fishing was there. Leona caught the first fish on her first cast. A few bites but nothing else. She saw something alongside the creek that scurried into the brush before she could make a positive identification. She said it might have been a weasel. We never saw it again. The...

Jul 2, 2015 - Day 35 June 27 2015 National Falls Creek OR

Day 35 June 27 2015 National Falls Creek OR This is our 5th day here at National Falls Creek. Tomorrow we will head for home. We’re ready to get back to our home life. It’s been fun, trying and down right frustrating at times. Leona is the calm one, I’m a bit high strung and lose it at times. This morning was a nice 48 degrees and partly cloudy. It was still raining when we hit the hay last night, so I’m not sure when it stopped. Mike and me went fishing for a couple of hours. Mike got five, I got four. The worst part of fishing is the...

Aug 5, 2012 - Crater Lake

Crater Lake today – weather was much more comfortable. We were all happier. First stop of the day was Beckie’s Restaurant – famous for home-made pies. Bob could not have been happier as when he hefted that ’10 lb.’ berry-berry pie into the car. Each couple bought one – the 2 cherry pies were still warm so the aroma wafted throughout the cars – and cost $16 each !!! It was a good start to Bob’s day. Crater Lake is the most beautiful lake I have ever seen that is inaccessible to touch. The water is like a sapphire blue. It is the deepest lake...

Aug 4, 2012 - another travel day

Another travel day but very short - only 60 miles. We are planning to go to Crater Lake tomorrow. Since we were in the campgound early we did some local poking around. The party sure stopped for us today - it was sooooo hot 101 degrees. We have been very lucky and not had really hot weather since we left Rapid City. We hate it - but we have good electricity in the campground so we can run the AC to full tilt. We DO NOT have any TV or cell phone service (anywhere around here) - but great WiFi. What more can you expect in the wilderness? Most...

Sep 10, 2011 - To Prospect, OR

Our time on the Oregon coast has come to an end and we head inland today to Prospect, OR and Crater Lake. It was a long day for us as we stopped in Sutherlin, OR to visit our friends Fred and Rita at the Escapees Park there. It was a great visit and we didn't mind the extra time spent traveling to see such great friends.

Jul 28, 2011 - Crater Lake

Crater Lake (July 23-24) On our way from Klamath in the RV we stopped in Crescent City to have one of the rear inside duals on the RV checked. I had not been able to keep it aired up, so had them pull it to check it. Loose valve, no charge. Nice folks. We had to come pretty far inland from our coastal trip to see Crater Lake, but it was on my “bucket list” of places the had to be seen. Had no reservations anywhere, so took a chance and pulled into the Crater Lake RV Park at Prospect, OR early afternoon. Meant to just stay one night and move...

Jun 20, 2011 - Worthing Adventure 2011 Day Six & Seven

Day 6 & 7 Took things pretty easy on Saturday. Just went down into the closest town and had brunch. Then stopped at a tie-die fair on the way back to Prospect. It was a little antique type fair with a lot of handmade items. There were a couple of tables I really liked but obviously would have no way to get home. After we left there we stopped by a book and gift shop and I found a picture to bring home. I did buy it but have no idea how I’m going to get it back to Wisconsin! After we left the town we just came back to Dave and Sue’s to...

Jun 18, 2011 - Worthing Adventure 2011 Day Five

Day 5 7:30am Brian and I slept in Dave and Sue’s camper last night.. now I want one of these! It’s really nice. ☺ But it’s really cold too – brrr. Time to figure out what we are doing today. If it involves a long car ride I think I’ll rebel, and so will the kids! Well, it did involve a long car ride but we decided to go with the flow since it involved going to the Oregon Coast. We left here about 9:30 and got to the coast about 3:00, but it wasn’t all driving. We stopped at a Kohl’s store to buy a Fathers Day gift for Brian’s dad. Then we...
