Slowly Heading North
Canyonville, Oregon: Dave and I are taking
our sweet time getting back to Eugene, Oregon for the Stanford game Saturday
evening. The drive from Napa requires two long-haul days
or, if you are pokey like us, one long day and two leisurely days. We took
option #2, leaving Napa yesterday morning for a 270 mile trek to Yreka.
We camped for the first time at the
Yreka RV Park
Wednesday night. The campground is just far enough off the interstate to avoid
traffic noise and features an Airstream Motor Lodge - where you can stay in an
Airstream trailer. We had a long gravel pull-through with full-service hookups.
Cable, free wifi, laundry room, bath house, propane and a small store. Free
coffee, muffins and newspapers in the office in the mornings. We paid $36 with
our Good Sam discount, and would happily stay there again.
It was pretty chilly and foggy in Yreka this morning. Happy to rest my toes
on our heated tile floors! Neither of us exercised in the cold mountain air;
we just hit the road.
Our only stop for the day was an hour lunch break at a rest area in Oregon.
The chowder I
put in the crockpot Wednesday morning was even better the second day.
We only traveled about 150 miles today, stopping again in Canyonville, Oregon at
Feathers RV Park (plus casino, hotel, restaurants, theater, spa and truck
stop). Before heading to the RV resort, we stopped to fill-up the Magna
Peregrinus at the tribal
truck stop. Not sure what was up with the attendant today, but when I
requested $400 for fuel on pump #3, he pre-authorized $300 on my credit card. DT
asked me to go back to the cashier and get another $100. I did and this time he
authorized $100 on pump #7. Goodness. $389 dollars and thirty minutes later, the
150-gallon tank was full.
After playing leap frog a few times with this guy today on I-5, we finally had a
close-up at the truck stop and discovered he was hauling a gianormous
propeller for the Coast Guard:
Long-time Readers will recognize the
Seven Feathers RV Park, as a frequent and
popular stop for us up and down I-5. The resort is
simply beautiful, set under pretty hillsides, and has
191 paved sites. The facilities are outstanding and they
are a perfect rally park.

Covered picnic pavilion
This is a typical pull-through site - with full service
hook-ups and picnic table. There are back-in sites as
well. Laundry, bathhouse, free shuttle to the casino,
walking trails, cable TV, free wifi and playground.
Just after setting-up camp and snapping these photos, it
started to rain. (Insert sad face here!) We will hunker
down for the night, watch college football and
rest-up for our 100 miles drive tomorrow!
Until my next update, I remain, your Oregon correspondent.

nights at this resort and explored the area -

RV PARK: Seven
Feathers RV Park - enough said above, we paid $36 with casino club card and
