Red Bluff to Canyonville

Canyonville, Oregon: Another long driving day, but 3 hours shorter than yesterday! Because we drove 8 long hours yesterday, we slept-in this morning until seven, lingered over coffee, we both ran and then hit the road south... but not before I snapped a few photos for my RV Park review. Durango RV Resort is very nice! I tried to take photos on December 21st, on our way south, but it was too foggy. The weather didn't exactly cooperate this morning, but at least I was able to see more than thirty feet.

After pointing our RV north, we saw a lot of this:

Not very exciting and we only stopped twice. The Magna Peregrinus is absolutely filthy. Can you even remember back to Tuesday when she had her first wax job? So sad.

We stopped for the night - before it was dark - at the usual Seven Feathers RV Resort in Canyonville (exit 99 on I-5 in Southern Oregon). We love this campground - long pull-through 50-amp sites, super quiet and safe, yet close to the freeway. They offer a fabutabulous indoor heated pool and spa, fitness center, running trails and will shuttle you down to the casino if you choose to visit (we do not).

In November, I made a turkey pot pie from our Thanksgiving turkey and froze the entree for such an occasion. Vacuum-sealed, the turkey pot pie has traveled with us the entire trip, waiting for an occasion such as tonight when I am too tired to cook and too lazy to go out and too lung-conscious to go into a smoke-filled casino - no matter how low they have priced their buffet.

Now that I think of it... why do the Native American casinos allow smoking? Wouldn't you want to promote a healthier environment for your workers - most of whom are tribe members - and clientele?

I live in my own little non-smoking - chewing-gum-free - dream world, don't I?

Anyway... tonight I baked the turkey pot pie in our little oven. Did it ever smell delicious. I just love homemade and easy. Plenty of the delicious little pie left over for lunch tomorrow as well. I don't have to mention it was organic, now do I???

Nothing says lovin' like something homemade from your RV oven!
