After a little over two weeks on the road, we needed to take an intermission. Jennifer's Dad was celebrating his 85th Birthday this year and Jennifer and her sister would not miss it. So we headed up to McChord Air Force Base and their on-base Famcamp. Craig stayed with the motorhome and Maggie, while Jennifer … Continue reading A Strategic Pause: Seattle, Washington
The next stop on our drive up the Oregon coast was Yachats. Actually a few miles south of Yachats at the Sea Perch RV Park. The central coast is known for its rough shorelines, quaint sea towns, coastal drives and walks, and supposed whale watching. The first few of these we were pretty sure we would … Continue reading Yachats and the Central Oregon Coast

For many it is the journey, not the destination. For today's post, that is what it will be for us. For the last five days we have been on the road to Oregon and the cool coast of the Pacific Ocean. But for you non-geography majors, that means about a 1300 mile drive from Tucson. … Continue reading On the Road Again. Finally!
