  • Day1

    Lake Simtustis

    June 21, 2017 in the United States

    Month #1 of retirement. We can hardly believe it's reality. I don't think we could have chosen a better place to decompress. No cell coverage nor WiFi. Yes, it comes with some inconveniences but there are far more pros than cons.
    We've spent days fishing, going on excursions such as Smith Rock, the Metolius, Sisters, Redmond, ate some fabulous food, drank scrumptious drinks, spent wonderful hours with friends like the Giltz's, the Vilendre's, and unexpectedly former neighbor s the Bertch's (not certain I spelled that correctly). And we made several new friends which is one one the very best things about this lifestyle.
    We had a fishing derby, boys against the ladies and as hard as it s for me to admit defeat but, I must. They simply out fished us. Until next year you dastardly boys. We will recover the coveted golden trout from your hands.

    Sorry, work friends but I really don't miss the grind AT ALL! I miss you but not work.

    We leave on the 30th of June for our next stop which is Silver Creek State Park where we will be camp hosts until September the 15th.
    More to come.

    August 18, 2017 in the United States

    In Oregon ist jetzt der Höhepunkt der Waldbrandsaison. An der Landstraße sehen wir immer wieder Schilder, die vor Rauchentwicklung oder Feuerwehrfahrzeugen warnen. Eine große Rauchwolke von einem aktiven Feuer können wir schon aus vielen Kilometern Entfernung sehen.Am Mount Washington passieren wir eine Stelle, wo ein Brand vor Jahren über 100 Quadratmeilen Wald vernichtet hat.
    Wir fahren weiter Richtung Portland und suchen uns einen Campingplatz im Mount Hood National Forest.Read more

  • Day6

    Sonnenfinsternis, T -2h

    August 21, 2017 in the United States

    Wir sind kurz nach 5 Uhr aufgebrochen. Der Highway war gut gefüllt, aber der Verkehr floss, und so sind wir kurz vor Madras auf dem Parkplatz eines Indianer-Casinos untergekommen. Das Wetter ist zwar fantastisch, aber irgendwo in der Nähe brennt die Prärie. Es ist leicht rauchig und stinkt. Ich hoffe, das weitet sich nicht aus und versperrt uns die Sicht.
    Wir genießen ein Frühstück und warten auf den großen Moment. Bisher ist die Sonne noch nicht angeknabbert worden.Read more

    Sonnenfinsternis in Warm Springs

    August 21, 2017 in the United States

    Es war fantastisch.
    In Stuttgart stand ich '99 auf einem Acker und der Himmel war recht verhangen, hier waren nur leichte Schleierwolken die überhaupt nicht gestört haben.
    Voll geflasht sind wir trotzdem sofort in den Camper gestiegen und haben uns auf den Weg nach Norden gemacht. Der Stau vor uns war deshalb noch erträglich.

    Fishing continues to be good. We've smoked over 120 trout so far! My sister Marcia came for two nights and as usual cooked us two delicious meals. We held the first heat of our 3rd annual fishing derby, men against women. So far the guys are ahead by two. 😒
    Our son Kyle came with his girlfriend Kelly for Father's Day weekend. Actually she's now his fiancee as they announced their engagement!!! 💟💍🥂🎉😊
    Monday Chad and Leslie hosted a build your own pizza dinner attended by Jim & Kathy, us and our former neighbors Mike & Paula. Fun and delicious!

    June 19-28

    June 28 in the United States

    We had a wonderful month at Lake Simtustus relaxing, reading (9 books), fishing, eating, drinking, playing cards, and visiting. Kuma was in doggy heaven wandering around our campsite and fetching his floating toy from the lake. Randy caught a 17 1/2 inch rainbow trout and with my expert netting skills we managed to land it in the live well. We enjoyed two scrumptious smoked corned beefs braised in stout beer prepared by Randy for his early birthday celebration. We completed our fishing derby with the boys beating the girls by six fish. Thursday night we had a farewell campfire and sing along at Jim and Kathy's.Read more
