Grants Pass KOA, Wild West Adventure (Day 42)

Friday and Saturday, days 40 and 41 were non-eventful. The fire was cleared on highway 138, the highway of waterfalls. We had plans of going back on Saturday. Saturday morning, Hubby woke up with stomach pains. I reminded Hubby that he was eating and drinking too much dairy again. Hubby spent most of the day …

Monday July 12, Day 36. We went to Lowes to buy a cheap tabletop charcoal grill. $20 bucks. We needed more DEF so Hubby went to Autozone. UGH, we are always buying DEF. That was the extent of our big outing. We did take a little ride in the country because we made a wrong …

Day 34 & 35 of our Wild West Adventure & Rising River RV Park

Day 34, Saturday, July 10. This would be a "get things done" day. Many RV parks do not allow you to wash your vehicles and RVs. We read the rules and it did not mention washing vehicles. I double checked and asked at the office and was told we could. Our 5th wheel was so …

Day 33 of Our Wild West Adventure, Mount Rainier.

Day 33, Friday, July 9. Finding Mount Rainier was easy. We needed easy after our not being able to find Mount Saint Helens. The GPS took us right to one of the entrances to Mount Rainier. During the drive there, we could see the snow covered mountain from miles away and we were in constant-awe …

Day 32. Mount Saint Helens. Where in the heck is it?

Day 32, Thursday, July 8. Today is a Mount Saint Helens day and boy what a day it was. Seven plus hours of driving with the destination being Spirit Lake and Windy Ridge resulted in just seven plus hour of driving to what seemed to be a wasted trip. Not all was wasted. Our first …

Thursday, Day 24 of our Wild West Adventure – Heading to Burlington – Anacortes KOA

Wednesday, June 30, Day 24. The first part of the drive was rather boring. Interstate 90, we decided, was the worst road we've been on. So unbelievable bumpy for a major interstate road. This unique bridge overpass was odd, but cool to say the least. We need a break so we pull into a roadside …
