I love markets like that!

Thanks for posting those, Bob.

Evelyn and I made our way from Jackson, WY, into Oregon in 3 days, and did a 6 mile, 6% downgrade into Plymouth yesterday. Yikes.

84 follows the old Oregon trail, and watching the road wind through the mountains, up and over and around, one can easily envision the wagon trains and the hardship those people must have endured.

Many very old homesteads along the way that you just know were built when this was only a dirt road.

Doing a closer look at distance from Astoria to Anacortes , I cancelled my reservation for the 31st at Fort Stevens and am going to drive farther north and stay closer to the ferry launch Weenesday night.

There's actually a city park right there....

See y'all next week!


Maggie

I am soooo looking forward to this gathering and meeting more new friends. I have met Maggie, (I want to just take her home with me and make her my little sister!) met Mimi when in Ft worth to buy my "Goliath"...also a very nice lady.

Everyone has such interesting backgrounds on this forum, and we all may come from various socio-economic backgrounds. We all gravitate together with one commonality....we all love our rolling homes and the urge to travel....go, see, do,...experience all life has to offer....including meeting new folks along the way.

Life is grand! Multnomah , Bridal Veil, and other falls tomorrow. Onward! Evelyn.
(P.S.: That ice cream looks delicious! Can't wait to try some at Tillamook! Do they also have frozen yogurt?)

Hi, Tillamook makes yogurt, but I don't remember seeing any. [actually I wasn't looking for yogurt] The camp ground is totally booked up so we can't camp there, but maybe we can meet people at the camp ground, or Tillamook, or ????


Silver falls, closer to our house has a ten mile hiking trail with ten waterfalls. We did it in three days. [beautiful]

ColoradoLady, you and Maggie are most welcome to stop over. PM me or Susan ("duncans") so we know to expect you.

Posted more photos of the WY trip a few minutes ago.

Safe travels, all.

Yes, I saw some of those...very nice. Do try, if at all possible to, at least join us for the "Tillamook ice cream tasting of many flavored", otherwise, how will we ever find the really good stuff?! LOL! Evelyn.

Had a pm from AlphaStream that she may or may not make it, still has her reservation in place but some things may get in the way.

Travel safe, all!

Sunday drive on a Saturday.

Hi, Today Bob and Lee went for a Sunday drive on a Saturday. I wanted to see Fort Stevens and all of our Airstream friends. We found an Interstate parked in loop "L", but no-one was home. I talked to a lady in the next space and was told the Airstream people just left. Before we left, a car pulled into the space where the Interstate was. The Airstream people came back. It was Evelyn / Colorado Lady and her beautiful Grand Daughter, Crystal. I asked Evelyn if she was an Air Forum's member and told her who I was. We hugged and had a nice talk. Evelyn and Crystal were about to check out the Pacific Ocean so after a short talk, we hit the road.

So nice to meet you Evelyn and Crystal.


These pictures show my truck that we drove today including miles driven, gas used, time of entire trip, gas mileage, and how far until empty. I'm amazed that this big vehicle can get 20 MPG.

Sunday drive on a Saturday.

Hi, also today we passed few places that we plan to visit in the future. On Highway 101, there was a Bi-plane flights place and farther down the road was a Helicopter ride place. We have been in a helicopter before but never a Bi-plane. On Highway 26, we spotted a Glider ride place, and we hope to go for a ride in a Glider. Sounds like fun to us.

I'll be in at Fort Stevens later today.

Mimi will soon be there, Maggie Haynes, Gail, Bill and Susan got a site, Evelyn is already there...

Anyone in the vicinity, feel free to stop by and say Hi.

I look for there to be a fair amount of gabbing and hanging around these first couple of days, also watching of the Shirley Valentine movie, which I have been carrying around but have not yet seen ....Tillamook and farmers markets this weekend, evening campfires, whatever we feel like doing.

See y'all soon!

Maggie
