Just surrender. We went from a 28' to a 19'to a 23' to our 25' FB. It's the keeper.

Hi Sidney,

We are camped at the Deerwood RV Park in Eugene, Oregon. It is right off Exit 188 on I-5. It is far enough off that it is very wooded and quiet. We are about five miles southeast of downtown Eugene. We have camped here before as it is only four miles from SuEllyn's Cousin's house.

Thanks! Looks like a place we will "bookmark" for future reference!

Besides the fact that you have a TV that will pull anything. I'd have to switch TVs to be able to pull a 25FB..
Still enjoying your trip! By the way, did the ducted AC seem any better? Quieter?
Thx
Jeff
Whether New Lucy is working out depends on who you ask. I think that she is just great. On the other hand, SuEllyn doesn't care for New Lucy's traffic flow, and she especially doesn't like the "jet engine" air conditioner. She can't fathom why it is so much louder than Old Lucy's.

As to the ducted air conditioning on the 2015 25FB, it is like night and day. We sat with the salesman at Sutton's in the 2015 25FB for about an hour on Monday afternoon with the air conditioner running. We could hold a normal tone conversation and did not even notice that the air conditioner was running.

I will. That's my job, to just surrender. We had the 2005 25FB for eight years and 1,400 nights. I think that SuEllyn misses Old Lucy.

Well... I can see what's in your future... a trade-in at Sutton RV and a shakedown cruise back to Florida with a stopover at Jackson Center for fine-tuning and servicing under warranty.

Congratulations, early!

Bill

If not at Sutton, probably somewhere. I am leaving the subject alone.

We are still in Eugene, Oregon. We slept in this morning and just took it easy. This afternoon we went over to SuEllyn's cousin's house. We went with her on a tour of the Umpqua National Forest south of Eugene.

We returned to Eugene and had a great pork chop dinner at Mickie and Rick's house. We went back to Lucy and started getting her ready to head out in the morning.

Lucy broke camp in Eugene this morning and made her way north to Portland, Oregon along I-5. At Portland, we turn east and headed out on the Historic Columbia River Highway or Historic US 30 that traces the Columbia River through Columbia Gorge. It was built between 1913 and 1922 from Troutdale to The Dalles, Oregon. It covers about 75 miles and is designated a Civil Engineer Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers. It is probably one of the most scenic drives in the United States, albeit a bit difficult for Fred and the Girls to negotiate easily. It is a very winding road with both up and down grades in excess of 10%.

Everyone made it through without a scratch, and we saw some really great scenery including a number of significant waterfalls.

We had hoped to get a campsite in Rufus, Oregon, but that didn't work out. We ended up at a campground in Arlington, Oregon well after dark.

We broke camp this morning in Arlington, Oregon and headed out across eastern Oregon. Like Washington, eastern Oregon has a desert or semi-arid terrain. It was a nice trip, and we covered almost 300 miles and made it into Idaho late in the day.

We made a stop today at the Pilot Truck Plaza in Stanfeild, Oregon. They had two interesting features that were firsts for us at any truck plaza. They had a full hook-up campground with 75 campsites. They also has a separate natural gas vehicle filling station.

We continued on to Nampa, Idaho, where we got Lucy a campsite for the night.
