    Private rv not for hire

    John, Welcome to Waldport. For many years we owned most of the East side of Wakonda Beach Airstrip (R33). We still hold deed to a few acres but they are under contract. Living in Waldport is a bit like Mayberry with a few 102 mph winter breezes and 55ft rollers hitting the beach in the winter. Early one winter morning I started down the hill at Wakonda Beach to turn North on 101 to drive to my office in Lincoln City but a big roller hit the beach and a few feet of surf washed over 101 so... I turned around and pulled the old Skylane out of the hanger and bounced up to the office with a 50mph crosswind..... Oh the adventure of driving 101 in the winter could be the subject of a heck of a adventure novel......IF.....you could live long enough after trying to drive over Cape Fowlweather...... driving from Waldport to Lincoln City every day in the winter was a chore and some days I could not make the trip out of Waldport and a few nights I just used my room at Chinook Winds when breakers were washing over 101 at Depot Bay....just not worth the adventure...... Waldport summers are to die for .. And ......and the winters you can die as well....keep your wits about you on 101... Drive on.....(101.....views to die for) . ..

    Morning Dave, We tend to just pass thru the Q a few times during the winter but seldom stay since for the most part Horses are not allowed in the area.... BLM has funny regs when it comes to camping with horses in some places...... If you wonder down Hyw 95 out of the NWet you might consider stopping for a spell at our huvel-one-horse-camp at Last Chance Peak just inside the Nevada state line from Death Valley. As I seem to recall you had a few Ural scooter rides in Death Valley......Last Chance Peak is somewhat like Death Valley but a bit higher that the valley floor at 2,600 ft elev. We have cools night in the winter but often have doors and windows open at 10 AM. We have BLM 4 x 4 trails right out our gate so a scooter ride is just a kick start and go...... We have water and elec and Pahrump Wallys is 12 miles South and the new VA clinic is 11 miles South if you need MD-abuse...... IF our hillbilly ways offend you ......you might sneak down 12 miles South and hang out with Vegas Flyer when he is working in Vegas.... IF John let Vegas Teacher spend the night at his place then he would let anyone camp there.........best contact him in a PM to invite yourself first....... Pahrump to the South of our camp is chocked FULL of Nam-Vets so it's likely that some of the guys you meet in town you still owe money to but its likely that they have forgot by now....... IF you get a little frustrated you could wonder 20 Miles South to Front Sight gun range and shoot off a few thousand rounds at the largest private gun slinging range in North America......so claimed.... Anyhow........our Hillbilly-horse-camp might be a proper transition down the RV camp quality range to prepare you for the level (or sublevel) of the "Quartzite-life"........ Last Chance Peak got its name before we arrived but we try to keep name true ..........but it is very serene and the stars are so bright that some nights you might want to look at them thru your welding hood. We have a local herd of wild donkeys and a scorpion in the yard bigger than a Lobster but he keeps the rattlesnakes mostly out of the yard.........hey its the desert right. One nice thing about going to town........almost everyone in town is carrying a shootn-iron on their hip so very little road rage in town since everyone knows the other guy has "heat" also.......we carry a water bottle instead of a pistol since water is likely to save your hide better than a pistol in the hood...... Anyhow IF you feel a bit like slumming drop by and see how the lower half lives........ Cheers, Drive on.........(Dont pet the yard critters......)

    Maiden voyage!

    In +30 years of Central OR to all parts of AZ we have taken every paved road and some of the gravel / dirt roads..... Cal mostly sucks for RV travel for a lot of reasons if just in transit through state........99 was so darn rough that the Army for a while would not allow truckers to haul battle tanks over sections of 99 because it was to rough on the tanks........uggg 95 South through Nevada is a mixed bag fairly good two lane highway BUT many HORRIBLE drivers that just HAVE to pass a RV no matter how fast you are driving. This year in our trip North on 95 we had to brake FOUR times to allow BAD drivers room to pull in after they had too little power and room to pass we were at 65 mph most of the time...... Over the years we had various aircraft that made the OR to AZ with ease.........T-210 worked well, V-35 Nice, C-182 nice view, C-421 easy quiet ride, Lear 36 very short ark bit of fuel hog but only a SR71 would pass it............ We once took te dirt road around the West side of Pyramid Lake and our Chestnut color horse was white from the Alkali dust by the time we got back on the pavement North of Fallon. 395 is fair once you get out of Reno can be a bit hilly but ok. T-210 and V-35 was easy but horse would not fit so.......Freightshaker just wonders mostly down 95 these days but keep a sharp eye in the mirrors for bad drivers that try to kill you passing....... Drive on........(Watch out for killer passers........)

    P & P, Well there is one thing missing.........NO Rattlesnakes.......bummer..... The local volcanic pumice is very abrasive and as such it is unable to be tolerated under the scales of the rattlesnakes so IF you desire to pet the rattlesnakes you will have to travel several miles East out in the desert .......... Other than the lack of rattlesnakes it pretty darn nice place to camp out........ LINK TO INFO: http://cdrriders.com/events/outbackstationbrochure2013.pdf Drive on...........(no rattlesnakes..........bummer)

    Friday June 29th we towed Dolly-the-paint-horse out of Bend out past LaPine turned East and 27 miles out to Outback Station Horse camp & RV park to escape the intense 4th fireworks in Bend that makes horses unhappy. $20 per night gets elec and the BEST water EVER tested by water lab........ancient water so old it has no radio active trace.........stunning water with OLD Growth Ponderosa Pines and S I L E N C E and the camp sites are at least 75 to 150 feet apart .........pull through s that could handle +100 ft long rigs....... Might just not leave until the first frost......... LINK TO INFO: http://cdrriders.com/events/outbackstationbrochure2013.pdf Drive on...........(S I L E N T .....4th)

    Blew out of Bend this afternoon and raced a couple antelope ( dropped of cruise as they passed in front....on our way to overnight at the fairgrounds in Burns, OR.... Dolly-the-paint-horse loves to make a few laps on the race track... Tomorrow hope to have enough parts and diesel to wonder over to Winnemueca the Lovelock, Fallon, and overnight at the Rodeo grounds at Hawthorne,NV.... We only have THIRTY tires on the road this trip .......wonder if the air will stay in them for the hobble down to Last Chance Peak Dolly-the-paint-horse camp? Drive on......(hay-burner in tow) AINT SOFTWARE GREAT.........THIS WAS POSTED MONTHS AGO AND APPEARED .........TODAY

    What's on the back of you truck?

    Steve, Your wrap looks good. It's a nice contrast to paint. Four years ago I wrapped some chrome on the visor on the Freightliner and it is one huge compound curve......not easy wrap. I was bored in Wickenburg so the three days it took was ok but working folks have less time to burn. Have several folks want to know where I got the chrome visor and I tell them s crazy old coot did them but he is dead now. Be careful wrapping curves... Drive on.....( Be careful of getting wrapped around the curves....)

    What's on the back of you truck?

    Steve, Sounds a little hill-billy but a weather-proof duplex 120 Vac outlet hidden at the lower skirt of the back of the bed sure is handy........nice to not have to string a extension cord out to run a REAL power tool.......cordless tools are nice but sometimes 120Vac is what really is needed. I am a lazy old dog but with a Wilton Vice plugged into the receiver hitch and a lawn chair with a Dr Pepper holder I could almost pass as a metal butcher.............if nothing else you can plug in the big horse fan and have a nice breeze while having a nap....... No some folks...........just might..........MIGHT ...........plug in their 120 Vac into the trailer as they tow down the road to keep the fridge happy ..........of course YOU and ME would NEVER do ANYTHING like THAT............(right??)....... Drive on..............(DC is OK...........AC is handy as well)

    Tire age

    Oh yessss the tire age subject..... somewhat like...... how often does your wife beat you...... One day on a preflight walk around a grumpy old Capt looked me in the eye and said....."kid, you know why they don't let the unwashed masses out here on the ramp these days...... well I'll tell you IF the passengers only knew that the newest RETREAD tire on this wreck was more yhay TEN years OLD before it was retreaded they would likely give up flying...... Of course aircraft tires seldom spend much time above 160 MPH and almost all landings are so..... soft and ground crews seldom piviot-turn heavy aircraft bon the ramps.......l Yes..... .three years sounds nice time to get new tires and maybe new engine and paint at the same time..... Drive on......(don't look too hard at aircraft tires)

    Master.... Sounds a little Hi-Tech coming from a old hill Billy but IF you really want that bolt out cleanly without any damage just look for a local machine shop that has a EDM machine and have them Electro-Discharge-Machine the bolt out in very little time .....no fuss....we removed broken taps in $700,000 turbine parts without any sweat..... Many large motorcyle machine shops use EDM to recover broken studs in bike cylinders a lot. Drive on...... (Try EDM ...... you will like it/
