Marianne & I both saw Wally immediately.

Try and keep them straight out there and don't let the "Blue Book Police" get to you.

Looking forward to more stories.

P.S. Took a couple drinks but I SEE WALLY!!!YEAH!!

Who else has seen the THIRD Wally--higher up the mountainside on the left, looking up and out into the sky, this is our Wally B, the one with the vision, seeing beyond the others! ~G

a wave to each as we pass......

on to oregon......
into the state and a big sign
a "welcome stop/rest stop/info stop"....
free maps.....

here i catch my first resting pod of 'streamers........

without bias...
i notice.....
so many fords.....

this trend would continue at the rally....
as i counted 3 fords for very 2 gms.....
the occasional dodge, nissan, toyota....

and even a caddy and lincoln continential.....
but these will come later....
vintage tows too.....

we briefly spoke as they departed...
just as this flock pulled out.....
another took it's place.....

the new group was an offical wb caravan.....
the st louis/kc/nebraska......
midwest bunch
as chance would have it...
my neck of the woods, or plains more correctly....

they had left the same general area....
2.5 weeks before me.....
and would arrive 1 week after......

the last 450 miles would take them a week....

i could not survive the pace of a caravan...
unless sedated

or in charge

cheers

as this group settles into the rest stop for awhile, we talk....

the caravan is taking interstate along the columbia river....
a beautiful ride.....
everyone should take this route at least once....

i've driven it dozens of times.....
in every season....
it's a vast view....
of the mythical northwest passage....

based on forum advice...
which i incorrectly interpret.....
i choose the road less traveled.....
much less traveled.....
the central oregon hiway....

route 20 or is it 22?
anyway i headed for burns, then bend, then sisters.....
and up to salem.....

somewhere on this route....
a vast central oregon valley...
with several passes.....

this spot is pretty remote.....
perfect for an airstream rest area
don't you think?

cheers

max is working on this trip.......

as i wander around the river and brush

spot guards the house....


then a quick inspection of the haha.....
before we head into the 45-35-25-15 mph switchbacks.....
where 'no trucks over 50ft' are allowed...

does that apply to rvs?

the drive from sisters on was really neat and twisty....
even a washed out section of roadway.....
34fter? no problem.....


next stop the bull pen.......

cheers
