Down the Road
Canyonville, OR: We didn't get very
far today, did we? It's okay - we are right on schedule, which is carefully
arranged around DT's call-in conference calls.
The white heron/crane was in the field outside our window again this morning,
but the bird had been joined over-night with a flock of noisy Canada Geese.
The two species paid no attention to each other.
Hitching the Jeep and going through the new-to-me towing procedure went very
well again today. Maybe I will get the hang of the step-by-step directions
before it is time to trade it in for a new model in seven years? I've decided to
print a cheat-sheet... and, oh, did I mention, there is a similar (reverse)
procedure to put the transmission back to a drivable situation? Oh, Honda... I
miss you so.
We had a very easy, beautiful and pleasant drive 100 miles south along I-5.
Clear skies and hillsides filled with colorful trees.
After checking-in to our campsite at
RV Resort, I took my camera for a walk and snapped a few photos of this
Typical campsite - with our beautiful motorhome
Pretty Autumn Leaves
Indoor heated pool and spa! It is like a sauna in here.

While Dave had his phone meetings, I kicked-back with a
needlepoint canvas. Always fun to start a new project. While I was stitching, a
little wren sat outside the window and sang to me for the longest while.
I think the bird was welcoming us back to life on the road?
Dinner tonight (Thursday is Soup Night) was prepared last week and frozen. I
sauteed half an onion with a handful of chopped sage, tossed-in a few cloves
of garlic (of course!), a package of already-peeled-and-chopped butternut
squash (because I can sometimes be very lazy) and boiled the whole mess in
veggie stock. After the squash was completely soft, the mixture was whirled
in a blender until smooth, then frozen. Tonight I completely ruined the
healthy status of the soup by thickening it with cream. Just a little.
Tomorrow, we continue south.
Until my next update, I remain, your transitional correspondent.
RV Resort - We have a long pull-through (full-service 50-amp) site and since
mentioning a billboard we passed on I-5 today advertising $19 campsites
Monday-Thursday, we are paying $19. Awesome! This is one of the nicest
campgrounds in America.
