Aug 19, 2013 - Salem, Or

We left Casey's at Westfir late so we wouldn't arrive in Salem early. We are staying at Premier RV resort in Salem. You might remember that we had a bit of a problem at the Premier RV in Lincoln City. Fred took the time to write a customer survey in which he pointed out that they had lost our reservation for a specific RV site, moved us to an inferior site near the road and never explained the cancelled reservation and lastly never replied to the survey. After two weeks and no reply Fred wrote the corporate office who replied immediately...

Summer Trip 2013

Aug 9, 2013 - Salem, Oregon

Monday, August 5, 2013. From Sweet Home, we drove north to Albany, Oregon, where we visited the Albany Historic Carousel Museum & Workshop. We saw dozens of carved wooden animals. The cost for creating the animals are paid for by various individuals and businesses. The animals are designed, carved and painted by local artisans and will eventually be used on a Victorian-style carousel in the city. They use basswood for the construction and are all hand carved without using any power tools. They hope to have the carousel completed and...

Jul 11, 2013 - Back in Salem!

Hello everyone! Gary and I arrived back in Salem on July 1st. Wow, what a trip we went on! We made a BIG circle that is for sure! About 11,000 miles on the truck! But, a mechanic told Gary that the trucks like we have, the Dodge Ram, is really not even broken in until they have 30-35,000 miles on them!! We are getting close, but not there yet. We have enjoyed getting to reconnect with our friends here in Salem, and Sunday we went to Eugene to spend the day with Kelli & Mike, our daughter and son in law. It was SO GOOD to see them...

Jun 27, 2013 - Great day home from the hospital

Dan managed to talk the doctors into releasing him Wednesday night. Jan and I drove over and picked him up. We were all thankful that all this drama has ended with such good endings. He feels great and the doggies were exstatic to see him. You can see that in the photos. Thursday, we had lunch with Laura and her family, our niece. I got to take myself off for a little alone time, also known as shopping. There is a mall right by Jan's house. It was nice to just look and touch and spend very little. Lunch was so much fun, with lots of 'Aunt...

Jun 26, 2013 - Salem Hospital, Dan's spa

Today was such a calm day compared to yesterday evening! Dan's diagnosis is confirmed as pneumonia. It was caught early and he is doing well. He is tired because they had him up all night drawing blood to regulate his blood sugar. They did finally get it to 120 which is good for him. So from 42 to 450 to 120 in 12 hours is physically exhausting. He is feeling much better so he is trying to organize the trip from his hospital room with just his cell phone. That's the sign he is back in the land of the living. Decisions and revisions have...

Jun 24, 2013 - Dan in hospital

Unfortunately, Dan ended up in the hospital tonight. We had a wonderful late lunch out with Jeff and Jan. After lunch, when Dan got up from his nap, he didn't feel good. He felt shakey and off balance. Things quickly went downhill from there. His blood sugar dropped to 42 and then started rising. His temp was okay and then started rising.When he became incoherent in his conversation, Jan called the ambulance. He had a temp of 102, a blood sugar of 450, dehydrated, nausea, and fast becoming a pin cushion with blood drawn from both arms at...

Jun 23, 2013 - a reunion of Weimers

We took off from Seattle this morning and drove down into Oregon. We passed through Portland, where my brother lives, and arrived in Salem, where Dan's sister Jan lives. We haven't seen her and her extended family since her husband and Dan's college roommate, Dave died last March. It was so good to spend time with her. Then her son Jeff and her daughter Laura, plus Laura's husband Scott and their 3 darling children, Esther, Harry, and Ben (6, 4, 2), and assorted dogs, filled the house with the most wonderful, happy, chaotic sounds. They are...

Jun 21, 2013 - Salem, Oregon

Our day in the Salem area began with visiting Oregon's state capitol. This trip we have been to three state capitol cities (CA, NV and now OR). On top of the capitol is the "Golden Pioneer" ( is it real gold?) After walking around the capitol's grounds we headed to the river front to see their river and also the carousel. It was interesting but nothing like San Antonio Riverwalk. We stopped by the visitor's center in the historic district of Salem to ask for a recommendation for lunch. We were directed to the Wild Pear - an excellent...

Jun 20, 2013 - Travel day - Canyonville, OR to Salem, OR

After spending an enjoyable happy hour with Cathy and Bob yesterday today we had to pull out and get back on the road. North to Salem and of course rain and rain and rain. Oregon is beautiful but the curvy roads and ups and downs and 6% downhills and the weather - well enough! Fran wants flat, straight and dry roads! Until the next time .... Have fun and stay safe! God Bless Ken and Fran

Sep 17, 2012 - Chilly Coast - head inland

We decided to go inland for a few days because the fog was rolling in thick, damp & chilly. We headed for Salem, one of our favorite Elks Lodges with full hook ups and wifi for only $17.00 a night. We traveled through more farmland and a little forest, crossing the Willimette River, entering the Willimette Valley which is warmer than the coast.

Aug 23, 2012 - Salem

I went into the office when they opened at 08:00AM and had them write up a service order. At approximately 08:30AM Peterson Machinery hooked up the drive train and took the RV into the shop. They performed a diagnostic and found a couple of fault codes. They found the IAP sensor wiring had not been completely closed and that caused the fault codes. They flashed the ECM and re-ran the diagnostics and everything appeared to be fine – no fault codes were present. We took the RV on a test drive with the diagnostic computer hooked up to the ECM...
