Planning, Planning…and Oregon Bound!
Well it’s been a few days since I’ve blogged, but your comments and words of support have been AMAZING. I am truly humbled by everyone who has shared their story and will be taking time to comment to each poster individually. My love and support goes out to all of you who are dealing or have dealth with things far, far more difficult than I. For the moment I still can’t quite wrap my head around writing about everything that’s happened here. Suffice to say it’s been a loooong 5 months and I’m ready to have it all behind me, at least for a while.
The one silver lining to all this is that we’re finally ready to move and making plans for our next months of travel. This is mucho-exciting and means we’re back on the road, baby!
This past week we knocked around a few different locations including Utah & Colorado, but decided in the end to follow the cool coast and explore the southern part of Oregon. It’s the perfect follow-on to our 2-month trip through Northern Oregon last year and means we’ll get many more paw-happy-sand-lovin’ moments on our very favorite coast. And in true beauty and the beast style it’s ALL going to be deep nature a-la national forest, county parks and state parks along the way. So, for a few days I’ve been scouring natural and inexpensive locations and have come up with a rough plan.
Basically we’re gonna high-tail it to Oregon up the 5, stopping at Mt Shasta for some mountain hiking & exploring and heading over from there to Ashland, OR for their annual Shakespeare Festival. From there it’s up to our fav spot in Eugene, OR for yearly RV maintenance & stocking up on fabulous produce. Then we hit the coast and take our fine time south along the 101, stopping at as many State Parks as we can physically manage to book. It’s a fine plan if I do say so myself and will take us to many new and unexplored areas.
Our adventure starts 2 weeks from today. In the meantime we’ll be wrapping up stuff here in San Diego, and hopefully cramming in a few more blog posts about the area. If any of you have thoughts on our trip or are planning to be in Oregon in the next few months do let us know. We’ve gotten some of our best visit ideas from other bloggers/commenters and always love meeting folks on the road.
