Back In Central Oregon

We arrived back in Redmond Friday afternoon after driving through snow - sleet - rain and strong gusty winds. But, we made it safe and sound.

We pulled into our normal RV spot - leveled the coach and got it set up for the summer. We will be the night and weekend RV Park hosts until the 1st of October, so not much summer travelling for us this year.

The blog may or may not be updated much during the summer, since it will be the same thing day after day, but then you never know.

I did manage to find several new geocaches in the area to keep my streak of consecutive days alive. I will fly back to Arizona next week and get the pickup and bring it back for the summer. We can't be here with just one vehicle.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Sitting in Standish, Ca

So far, the journey to Redmond has been quite eventful. When we left Apache Junction on Monday, there wasn't even a hint of a breeze. By the time we got to Wickenburg, the winds were blowing around 35+ mph with stronger gusts. We finally stopped for the night in Henderson, Nv at Arizona Charlies RV Park.

Tuesday, we started north again and again, strong winds so we stopped in Hawthorne, Nv for the night. In the morning, I looked at the weather forcast up the road and since there were "gale" force winds again, we opted to spend another night and see what the weather looked like on Thursday.

Today, we left Hawthorne and headed north and planned on stopping in Lakeview, Or for our last night before arriving back in Redmond. But, looking at the weather again in Lakeview and after driving thru several snow squalls, we stopped for the night in Standish, Ca.

The weather for tonight and tomorrow looks OK for travel, but it will be damn cold. I'm not hooking up the water tonight since the low is in the low teens and I don't want to thaw out water pipes in the morning.

The wind is blowing and it's snowing, but were snug and toasy in the motorhome.

Stay tuned.
