    Da uns ein wenig nach Verschnaufen ist, bleiben wir 2 Tage an einem kleinen See. Und wenn wir nicht mit Elli spielen oder planschen, waschen wir Wäsche ;-) . Außerdem haben wir nach über einer Woche mal wieder den Luxus in einer richtigen Dusche zu duschen und im Internet zu surfen. Zusätzlich machen wir außer lecker Essen einfach NIX.Read more

    Schöner Blog! Genießt die Reise! Ich bekomme schon Fernweh.... Liebe Grüße Laura

    Rogue River - Day One

    July 31, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    So we headed over to the rafting office and got there right on time. We met a nice family from Reno right off the bat and they gave us good packing advice.

    After a briefing section we packed up our stuff in dry-bags and took a shuttle to the river.

    I wadi. An inflatable kayak and the kids were in a bigger raft - but they still had to row.

    NOTE: From here on our there aren't many pictures at all. I had to keep my phone in a dry bag on the raft and it just seemed easier to enjoy the trip than snap pictures! I'm hopeful the company will forward videos and pics I can add to this later.

    Anyway, the first day was great! There were plenty of interesting class III rapids and the kids seemed very pleased. We could jump into the river often and float beside our boats on the flat stretches. That was a great way to cool off.

    We had a nice lunch and got to know the other folks on the trip. There were about twenty customers and six guides. Most of the guides were teachers and did this for extra summer income. They were very professional and took our safety seriously!

    By 3:30 or so we made it to our first lodge to spend the night. Highlights included:

    - The tame, friendly deer
    - Playing "The Resistance" card game with three teen siblings and two guides, Lax and Jasmine. Lots of laughs.
    - Bats flying around in the main lodge because they were fixing the roof and had holes temporarily.
    - The lights going out at 10 b/c the generator was turned off - dark!

    Rogue River - Day Two

    August 1, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We had a nice easy morning at the lodge, including a nice hearty breakfast. By 10:00 we were back in the river. Samantha and Franklin had a chance to run some rapids in the Kayaks here and there and we continued deeper into the wild lands.

    A real highlight came late in the day when we stopped at an old homestead site that was now a museum. There was a wonderful swimming hole in the creek along the property that we hiked up too. The water was crystal clear and even colder than the Rogue! Franklin and I jumped off the big boulder several times - hopefully the guide will email us some pictures.

    The second lodge was even nicer than the first and we'd had a good time playing games and relaxing. We watched some of the videos together on a big TV and laughed at the thrills and spills.

    Attached is the one picture I took that day - the lens soaked from the wave Samantha and I took to the face while in the raft!

    Jordan Fabrics, Grant's Pass, Oregon

    October 3, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    Landed in Grant's Pass, OR. The reason we stopped in Grant's Pass was so Rhonda could go the the infamous Jordan Fabrics Quilt Shop. Donna Jordan is a YouTube rockstar in the quilting world. We were hoping for a Donna sighting...when lo and behold Donna walked into the store and introduced herself. I told her of our epic adventure and allowed us to take a group picture. This made Rhonda's day.

    At the airport we got this killer courtesy car.

    Oregon Caves National Monument

    November 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    We drove to the Oregon Caves and was able to get on an 11am tour, instead of the 3pm tour I reserved. It was rainy and the lodge was closed, so there wasn't much to do if we had to wait.
    There was an old couple that had to leave after a short walk into the cave. They were warned, but it didn't sink in. They never would have made it through the whole tour.
    After the tour, we hiked up to a viewpoint before leaving for our campsite in Grants Pass.
