We’ve made it to the Sierra’s and the show is about to begin! The weather is crisp and bright, the lakes are brilliant blue, the mountains bold and beautiful and the aspens are about the make their grand exit in a brilliant display of yellows and orange. We are at the very edge of the change, probably a week [...]
After an outstanding (and very memorable) summer in Oregon we’ve finally crossed the border and started our trip south to our winter spots in the SW. Although we’re sad to leave our fav state, we’re excited to be engaging in the next step of our journey.
This year, as we did last year, we’re taking [...]
A lovely lakeside forest service campground only ~10 miles from the entrance to Crater Lake, OR
Site Quality = 2.5/5
You have the whole gamut of site types in this place. Although officially a 35-foot max [...]
We’ve been having quite the exciting and social week here at Diamond Lake. A couple of days ago our buddies Lu & Terry from Paint Your Landscape arrived, squeezed in their huge rig (we now have 3 “beastly” rigs all cozily camped at this “officially” 35-foot max park), and joined us in exploring this [...]
If you’re a geek like me you’ll remember the iconic IBM machine Deep Blue that beat the world champion of chess in 1997. It was a deep moment (geekwise) and for some reason that very image popped into my mind the first time I viewed Crater Lake. What I was seeing was almost inconceivable [...]
We’ve landed in our new back yard and I’ve gotta admit it ain’t bad. We left Eugene on Thursday and drove a pretty ~140 miles on 2-lane highway into the “dry side” of Oregon welcoming deep pine, dusty trails and volcanic mountains. Our destination was Diamond Lake, a lovely 3,000 acre blue oasis at [...]
This blog post has been on my “list” for a while and I’ve resisted writing it mostly because I wasn’t sure of my own conclusions. Discussions on extended warranties are akin to opening a can of Sicilian worms in an Italian bait shop. It’s a MESSY topic with lots of very heated opinions on each [...]
Since we swept ourselves inland and off the coast several days ago we’ve had a busy time doing a little bit of everything. Whether it’s the shock of suddenly having over 40 different shopping options or simply being back in the buzz of “the city”, everytime we come here we seem to go crazy with activities and [...]
I’m a bit behind on my easy RV mods (with sooo many interesting blog posts to write what’s an RV gal to do?), but this week I’m getting back on track and I’m super-excited to present our very first reader-submitted mod!! Say hello to Steve and Mona Liza from The Lowe’s RV Adventures. They’ve [...]
We’re winding down our very last few days here on the gorgeous OR coast. On Monday we’ll be packing the rig, waving our last teary coastal goodbyes and moving inland. Current jello plans have us in Eugene for a week, then Crater Lake and then (possibly) another fall drive down our favorite highway in the entire country (spectacular Hwy [...]
