After phoning several RV parks between Pendleton and Portland,
Oregon and getting turned-down (poor planning on our part due to the holiday
weekend), our best option was to just go home.
So we did. We arrived home Sunday afternoon and DT immediately began
unpacking/unloading and organizing the RV and I immediately began getting the
We were greeted with pretty flowers from our house sitter, Brandon, and a new
lower deck! Twenty years of Oregon rain and the dang thing was just getting a
bit soggy in a few spots, so our contractor replaced the boards and stained the
wood to match the
upper deck (upper deck was replaced several years ago).
And our rhoddies are blooming!
We were away 215 nights - most of that time spent in
Indio and Los Angeles - with a few side trips to Las Vegas, Yuma and
Borrego Springs. We took about a month to get to Indio and about a month
to get back to Oregon, covering about 4000 miles in all. (Dave flew home a few
times for board meetings.)
We sent a lot of postcards!
I updated this blog 136 times on the trip and posted 5,329 photos of
tacos... or something close to that... or it must have seemed that many
to My Readers?
Dave and I miss Tacos Gonzales very much. Very. Much. (But not as much
as we miss Lenny, Lisa & Leo.)
We will take several days to get organized and then we are heading out
AGAIN in the motorhome! Stay tuned.
