I’m always amazed at the power of community in RVing and how that expands through blogging. When we first spoke about our Cape Blanco job on the blog a few weeks ago, several commenters turned me onto Grant and Kathy from BirdingRVers, two experienced lighthouse hosts (and yes, bird lovers too! Oh, and Kathy [...]
The more we stay here at Bullards Beach the more we are digging the area. Despite Paul’s back issues, this place has been one of the nicest stops we’ve done on the coast. The cool town of Bandon is only 5 mins away and is the kinda spot that’s not-too-small and not-too-big. A pretty coastal town with [...]
Well Paul is coming along. He may complain it’s at a sloth’s pace, but from my impartial viewpoint it’s been rather amazing. In the short space of only a few days he’s gone from not being able to move at all to practically full range of motion in his back, and from not walking at [...]
I call it “He-Man” disease and all you women out there probably know it well. It’s when a male species ignores whatever pain he has going on and decides to just “He-Man” right through it. Muscles bulging, chest forward, and power on! But alas unless you’re a young buck in its first prime, “He-Man” comes back to [...]
Almost everyone we talked to before coming to the southern OR coast told us to make sure we took the trip to Cape Arago. What they didn’t tell us (or perhaps it just hadn’t clicked for me) was how utterly stunning this little stretch of land is. It’s one of those places where everybody says [...]
We’ve travelled a mind-boggling 30 miles (48 km) down the coast and have found ourselves in yet another world. It always amazes me that small changes in location can yield such great changes in environment. It’s still the Central Coast, it’s still the beach, it’s still the ocean, but it ALL seems so very, very different.
A very pleasant state park ~30 miles south of Florence by a large inland lake on the central OR coast.

I think everyone has “hidden” abilities that can’t be explained. It’s curious, but fascinating and I’m always interested in the weird and wonderful ways the mind works. Me? I have a nose for trail-discovery. This should not, under any circumstance, be confused with having a sense of direction. In fact my sense of direction is so notoriously [...]
I do love lighthouses, which is a good thing considering we’re about to become bona fide tour hosts in a few weeks. There’s something about the bare isolation of the locations and the all-encompassing life of those who tended them that give lighthouses a wild and rather romantic aura, at least from a story-telling point of view. When we [...]
There’s a whole lotta sand out here. In fact if your mind didn’t know you were in Oregon your eyes would think you landed in the Sahara Desert. A sudden urge to wear long, flowing garments and mount a camel overcomes you. Or perhaps your inner child gets the upper hand and you run up the mountain [...]
