Today, Karen and I drove by Interstate 5 from Vancouver, Washington, to Red Bluff, California. Around 11 hours for 500 miles.
We enjoyed visiting with family in their new homes. Beautiful cool and drizzly days in Vancouver. They both live about 20 miles north of the Columbia River at Portland.
We had intended to tent camp starting last Friday, but inclement weather kept us in town. Rainshowers and fog, and mountain driving, all together did not seem safe or likely to allow us to see very much from the road.
Our next trip will be to a cabin at Cape Blanco, Oregon.
Our 2003 Ford Explorer drove very nicely for both of us. $115.00 round trip for gasoline. It was packed full!
Time, for now, to unpack and reconnect with our Red Bluff home, gardens, and projects.
