4 hours and 54 minutes but you could alter your route a bit and come only a little way out of your way.

Wow, that's a bit of a drive.  Not sure yet when the trip up that way will be, could be during the winter though and that's a stretch in the snow they get up that way.

Enjoy your new place though.

Teri, are you guys going to be at your place in S. WA this summer?

 

 

Joe

I'm thinking you mean us?  We'll be there sometime -- maybe end of May or maybe June.  We have big remodeling projects to do on our place.  So, if you're heading down, bring a hammer and your credit card!  :)

Yep, you be the one's I was referring to.:lol:  As for the Hammer part, not a problem.  Credit Card is already getting hit with my remodeling project here.:rolleyes:  But I do hope to get down that way sometime this year.  Might not be until September though.

So, June 9th in Bend shouldn't be too bad?

We've got from now till then to get there...any suggestions for stops along the way?

 

R & L,

Trust me you will be just fine in Bend in June.....oh ya....

I was hatched in Central Oregon and family has had homes since before it was a state (1859)....so here is the weather deal..... only TWO years in a row do I recall watching the Fourth of July fire works in a snow storm......not many places in the lower 48 can have fire works in the snow on the 4th.

.....ya know that second year that it snowed we lost a few Kalifornians......

Now the good news ......as I recall I have seldom needed to plow much snow in July in Bend......

We still own a couple places in Bend but we don't need to arrive until it gets over a +100 at our AZ & NV places......

You will likely survive Bend if you take your parka, heavy boots and thick gloves.....

Bend has Two seasons.....Snow & Forest Fires......

I've seen those t-shirts too.  However, Oregon does have a summer with very little rain. The problem is people don't always visit during the right time of year.  Summer doesn't start until late June or early July in the PNW running usually through the end of September.  I said usually because this year has not been usual anywhere.

We have owned a place just South of Waldport forever and almost every year in mid-summer you will have 90 days or more with NO measurable moisture AT ALL.......NONE...

We had a 2000 ft long turf airstrip that mowed a lot until mid June then it turned brown and never needed mowing until March.....

Now when it rains in can get with the program .......sometimes a inch in a hour but you just put your rain gear on and stay away from swollen fast running water......

Oregon is.....Oregon.....there might be a reason more folks live in Kalifornia .......

Drive on.......(gotta go mow the ..... airstrip)

I was thinking of you two today. I don't know if you've been reading my blog but I have returned to the hobby of building Lego kits. Today I was working on a photography studio. Can you imagine seamless made from Lego bricks? When I finish the second floor of the three buildings in the Assembly Square kit I will post pictures that will include the photography studio.

Unbelievable.  A month ago, I did not know which way my life was going.   Today we are just about moved into our summer digs.  We are still sleeping in the big motor home because the big furniture doesn't come until tomorrow.  We have set everything else up and it is just weird.  Doug has an office, I have a craft room, kitty has her own room too.  The kitchen is immense and even though I was the one to put everything away, I cannot find things.  We have barely touched the gardens.  Doug got the lawns all cut.

Wednesday, we trade the big motor home for the bit smaller one.  Then we will equip it.  We hope to take our maiden voyage in it before the end of the month.  Just a little one back to the park to see our friends.

When making your plans for summer travel, why not include British Columbia.  You'll have to leave your guns at home but we have a big driveway.

You remind me why we decided to go small even after full time RVing--we liked having everything and each other so close. Even so, I still do not know where to find everything in the kitchen--partly because our daughter set it up with Dave slightly modifying things. You will, eventually, figure out your kitchen but having to chase each other down when you want to talk might continue to be a challenge. But, maybe not. I hope it turns out you like your new place as well as we like ours.

Congrats on your new place!

We got the keys (and garage door openers) to our new house yesterday. New couch and mattress  were delivered yesterday also. Tomorrow the refrigerator, washer and dryer, today road trip to Bandera to get the hutch at an antique store. Still need a lot of furniture. Emptied our little 6x8 enclosed trailer and haven't seen some of the stuff in 6 1/2 years. We also have a 10x20 that is stuffed but no furniture.

Last week the weather was nice this week it's rainy. Bummer. 

Travel safe everyone.

More and more of us are settling down at least semi-permanently. We must be getting old, huh? I sure do like living in a place that has a restaurant, bar, and cafe all under our same roof. Now if we just had an RV park for all of you who are still moving...

Did I miss something?  Are we not keeping the class map up to date?  I know most of us are sitting still, but still....

So we are all settled in our summer place and ready for guests.  We have a big driveway so put away those weapons and come on up to wine country.

Google wants Dave's credit card information to keep the map going. The few members who responded to my inquiry about that said not to do it. The map is still there but who knows for how long. I don't know if you can still update it.

We are on the move toward Phoenix for a Granddaughter's high school graduation. We've stopped in senic Fort Stockton for the night. Tomorrow night should be Deming then Tempe.

Sure glad we washed the motorhome Monday we've been rained on twice this afternoon. Somehow the rain gods know when we are on the road. LOL!

The map worked for me.

Travel safe everyone.
