Talking Ashland, Or trip

Hi All! We just returned from Ashland Oregon. We go there twice a year to see plays at the Oregon Shaksperian Festival. This was the first trip there with the trailer.

We planned this trip last April when we were down there to see the spring plays. We scoped out this campground at a county park, Emmigrant Lake. The Point RV Park is deep inside the park, on the shore of the lake. The water was very low right now because it's the dry season, but normally it would be only yards away from some of the campsites. Even with the water level low it was a beautiful view, and there was all kinds of wildlife to enjoy. It's about 5 miles ou of town, so it's very quiet. We had the primo spot at the very end of the campground. We had a view of the lake, but the other campers had a view of the lake and US

We saw A Midsummer Nights Dream, The Piano Lesson, Hedda Gabbler, Lorca In A Green Dress (a very weird play), and Wild Oats. They were all fantastic, and very high quality productions. They really make it worthwhile to travel down there to see the plays, we haven't really been dissapointed yet.

We saw a couple As on the way to the campgrounds. One, an old Safari I think, with the three big windows down the side, was in the yard of a towing and repair shop just outside of town. Another, a very old one with two rectangular front windows like eyes and many segments on the front curve. I don't even know if it was an AS, but it was old, aluminum, and cool. It was in a storage yard next to the towing yard. Two old trailers within a block!

The only other cool AS sighting was on the way home, heading north on I5. We saw in the southbound lanes a short old schoolbus, painted bright yellow with green flames on the nose, towing an old bubble? also painted bright yellow. Can't say if the trailer had flames, I was too shocked by it being yellow to notice! Don't know exactly what it was, it had one small window towards the front on the curbside. I just know it wasn't a Caravel.

So that was our adventurous week. It mostly involved lounging by the lakeside between plays. The trailer performed flawlessly in every respect. We had hot water for showers, the fridge worked, no complaints. A great time was had by all!

Here's a picture of our site from the main park...
