Oct 14, 2009 - Foster Lake

Sunnyside campground on Foster Reservoir is a great RV park. It may be overcrowded in the summer, when skiers take over the lake, but in the Fall, just a few hunters and us. Our spot was overlooking one of several moorages on the lake. We pumped up our zodiac boat and carried it down the hill to the moorage, only to find that they had drained the reservoir down about 9 feet since we checked it out last week. The docks were high and dry. So we had to lift the boat down and launch from the available rocks. The boat worked great ! We quietly...

May 28, 2008 - Sweet Home, Oregon

It was one rainy rainy rainy day today! Started raining last night, didn't stop all day, my poor windshield wipers have not had this much work, ever! We started out today getting in my trusty lil Toyota, to find the battery was dead, probably from all that windshield wiper action!

Good food and lots of it. Then we were off to see Crater Lake! On the way we passed...
