  • Day23

    Tlalapauque to Klamath Falls, Sisters OR

    July 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    After a sleep in we are up and at em with another fantastic meal this Time breakfast. Vicki and Bob served us a great beak fast that left us not needing to eat until late in the day. Bob and Vicki have done an amazing job since we saw them last, in 2014 they were camped in a caravan/trailer with a cook house for food preparation and cooking. Four years later the home that they have built with all of the ditch digging for services and the fire mitigation work is absolutely astounding. We all congratulate them and are in awe of their efforts. The time had come to get on the road and as I do I found it very emotional but leave we must and so it was that we hit the road.

    Our first stop was bend to visit Bend or Wildhorse HD for some tips they gave us last trip, whilst there we met another Aussie guy there who has called Bend home. We think he was pretty happy to have a chat in his lingo. From Bend we carried onto Crater Lake National Park, we missed this last time and all we have heard is of how fantastic it is Well the guys were right. After miles of travel we caught our first glimpse of this natural wonder. With a depth of 592 metres and visibility of 142 metres the water is the most brilliant blue. No photo truly captures what the eye does but it was unbelievable. We spent several hours there including lunch and a couple of items from the gift shop.

    It was getting late in the day but we kept finding new things to stop at, including Fort Klamath that was a military outpost that provided a resting place for pioneering settlers in the 1800s. It contained yet another great small museum and a great guide.

    Finally we made Klamath Falls (by the way there are no falls at Klamath Falls) and rooms at the Super 8 Motel. We stumbled upon the Klamath Basin Brewing Company where a great little blues quartet was playing in a beer garden. We enjoyed a great meal along with a cold beer or two.

    Alaska Day 3 Bend, OR

    July 9 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    Last night’s “home” was an RV park, Scandia, in South Bend, OR. I have always loved Bend as we used to have Stodd family reunions there for many years. I still have relatives here. Bend has truly “grown up” over the years but I think the City (pop now ~100,000) has done a great job in keeping up the beauty of the City. Lots of parks, flowers everywhere and the Deschutes river that runs through downtown.
    After chasing down an RV issue that required an oil change, we set off to explore Bend. A walk through Riverbend Park and a short way on the Deschutes River Trail (DRT) led to watching lots of ways to “float” down the river – clearly a popular summer pastime here. Paddle boards, inner tubes, kayaks, and canoes enjoying the great outdoors. The DRT goes for about 3 miles on each side of the river. When I was here in May, Mandie, niece, and I did the entire trail and it is a lovely easy walk. Lunch in the Old Mill District with lots of restaurants and shops right on the river.
    Then off to Sisters, OR, only 20 miles away for the night. Had to “dry” camp tonight. I now know what that means 😊 no hook ups to electricity, sewer and water. It also means less work when you come and go !! Enjoy a 4 minute shower ($1.00 per minute) and a relaxed cocktail hour in the park with nice weather. (Alice sketching and painting, Kay on the computer) Could walk to downtown Sisters and found a place for a light dinner. Nice day and a break from driving.

  • Day38

    Sisters, Or for a couple days

    July 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Got up bright and early to head out of Lake Diamond. Three reasons we left....

    1. No internet or cell service; nothing.
    2. Mosquitos... as bad as Minnesota.
    3. Sue’s dad, “Daddy-O” had emergency surgery last night and we needed to be in-touch.

    About a three hour drive but glad to have a full hookup site on the forth with no advance.

    Decided to drive thru Eugene, Or and see if Aubrey Timmons was around. She wasn’t but touring campus was an experience. An RV with a tow car is great but it has one limitation that most don’t know about...

    It can’t back up while the tow car is connected.

    That limitation make directional decisions Very important. Unfortunately, we experienced a bad decision.

    Turning down “University Avenue” would seem to be safe. Not here. We got to an intersection with a “DO NOT ENTER” and the only option being a left turn...which led to a small parking lot, much too small to do a “U” turn. So we had to stop, unhook, turn the RV around and re-hookup. Thank goodness classes were out and the lot was empty.

    Heading east, we followed thE McKensie river thru the McKensie pass. Nice drive but you can clearly see (and still smell) the wildfire that ravaged the Williamette National Forest 15 years ago. For miles and miles all we saw was toothpick trees. Undergrowth is back but incredible devastation.

    Nice spot to see Mt. Washington and the burned out area though.

    One thing we noticed... millions and millions of butterflies. We must’ve killed a thousand coming down the mountain. The gas station person who cleaned the windshield didn’t touch the front end. I have a lot of work to do.
