Drive to Salem

18 October 2012

The drive over the Santiam Pass to Salem was perfect with the golden, orange and red fall colors in full array. Unfortunately, driving in the motorhome is hard to get good pictures.

We were supposed to stop at Ford dealer in Stayton to get oil change,but since we got there late for our appointment they could not take us. Guess we will have to get it done when we get back to Redmond. At least while we were in Redmond, John was able to get the propane valve replaced at Straub propane. Only charged him $10 as John had the new valve and the propane was only $1.39/gal. What a deal. Now the only thing left to do is get the tires checked at Les Schwab and John to install the controller on the steps.

We arrived at Premier RV Resort in West Salem and are quite pleased with our choice. I was surprised at how full they are,but guess most are here for the winter. It is very quiet, with concrete pads, full hookups, laundry, pool, exercise room, nice reception and store. Nicer than some KOA's we have stayed. Our price for 9 nights with Good Sam discount is $300. Would definitely stay here again.

We have a busy schedule this next week. Get together with friends and medical appointments. I have even scheduled a hair and massage appointments. Need a decent haircut as I have been doing it myself. Going to my old salon on Liberty. Also getting a hot stone massage from my gal at Russell's.

Rain is in the forecast for our stay. The trees are beautiful. So many colors.
