Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.
One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things. Henry Miller.

Arrival in Oregon

30 September 2013

After 11 months on our 4th journey we arrived back in Oregon at daughter Hope and family where we will stay for a month before heading to California and Nevada for the winter. This trip completed our visits to the lower 48 and 4 Canadian Provinces. Our next trip will take us to British Columbia, Alberta and maybe Saskatchewan for 2014.

Our drive today took us from the KOA in Pasco,WA via the Columbia Gorge on 84 to 97 south at Biggs Junction. Oregon and Washington have been experiencing high winds and rain. We were OK on the Gorge, but as we turned south the winds increased. Had to stop several times to extend the large slideout awing as the winds were causing a problem. Fortunately no damage was done. John is going to see about getting a cover for it.

It was good to see Hope,Shawn and grandsons Colt and Cade. Casey kept looking for Destiny and she likes to stay in motorhome with us during the day. The horses are in the pasture as well as 6 steer. Had the grandsons get a growth photo by iHome to see how much they have grown since we left last year.

How Does this Work?

Checkers & Casey Are Pals

We will spend time reorganizing motorhome,having carpet cleaned and just a general cleaning out of things not needed. John will catch up on his fortwiki.com site.

1st week in November we will go to Salem for Doctor appointments and to visit friends.

We would like to find doctors in Redmond, but it is almost impossible on Medicare and with this new health plan debacle who knows.

Til next time.
