Alaska Day 1July 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C
Off to Alaska!! Left Bodega Bay at 8:15AM. Destination Klamath Falls, OR, about 400 miles. Getting accustomed to riding in a motorhome van takes some getting used to. Alice plans on doing all the driving so my jobs are navigator, cook and clean up. Lovely ride up route 5, past Mt. Shasta still covered with snow to the ground. No California drought this year.
Worked on reservations for tonight and settled on a place about 20 miles north of Klamath Falls, OR. Weather great – around 80 at our destination – the Waterwheel Campground and RV Park. Nice to get away from the city already on our first night out. Campground is on the Williamson River, a fly fisherperson – did not see him catch a thing.
Kay’s tutoring session on how to hook up the electricity, sewer and water. Will see what I remember tomorrow night. Cocktail hour outside our RV and a walk along the river before dinner of steak salad. Cooking facilitites very adequate however could not get the microwave to work. Alice had some work done before this trip and she thinks they did not plug it back in as everything else electric is working. Downtime after dinner and an early bedtime. Planning on Crater Lake tomorrow.Read more
