View from our campsite this morning
TrackTown, USA: We enjoyed a
leisurely morning (if you count running in the rain as leisure) as the motorhome
did not have to be over to
Cummins NW for
her check-up until noon. We handed-over the keys to the techs and were told to
fetch our bus before five o'clock.
First stop - Cafe Yumm!
for lunch... and really not so much for lunch, but as an excuse to purchase a
few jugs of
Yumm! Sauce for Lisa. I write about this local chain often, as I really
super enjoy their bowls - rice, beans and various toppings. With chicken, tempeh
or tofu added, the bowls (topped with tomatoes, sliced avocado, black olives,
cheese), and Yumm! Sauce drizzled over, makes for a perfect meal. Healthy. Low
cost, mostly organic and so delicious.
I can't tell you how much I miss my Hot & Jazzy Yumm! Bowl with
fried tofu cubes while we are away from Portland.
Nearly as much as I miss my Tacos Gonzalez while we are away from Indio.
After lunch we picked up a few things from Costco and then I dropped DT off for
meetings about the
USA Olympic Track & Field Trials (which will be held in Eugene 1-10 July
2016). While Dave was in his meeting I picked up a few groceries for our
southerly trek (which re-starts tomorrow).
Our motorhome was ready at 4:30p. The techs at Cummins found no issues. Standard
lube, oil, filter and generator service. $900. Not exactly like taking the sedan
to Jiffy Lube, eh?
Though we had previously decided to go out to dinner, it was decided
we could not afford it finishing
the lasagna would be more prudent and easier. Zapped in the
microwave, with a tossed salad.
We were tired.
So our adventure really begins tomorrow. We are so excited to
head south, hoping to escape snow over the mountain passes and arrive to visit
family in Central California next week. We take it slow and steady. No huge
mileage days. No deadlines.
Until my next update, I remain, your Eugene correspondent.
RV PARK: Premier
RV Park. I-5, exit 199. Large paved pull-throughs. Back-in sites line a
small lake. Laundry, fitness center, club house, bath house, recycling,
small store. 50 amp, free wifi. This park is very popular with campers in
the area for repairs/maintenance at the many nearby RV facilities. We paid
$51 per night (and had one night free via our frequent-flyer punch-card).
