RV Parks Are Packed
Every RV Park along the Pacific Coast was packed. So many! Looked a bit ugly. So, we moved on.
Then we asked Google a for camping place. Google came up with this US Army Corps of Engineers place where we are now. It's name is Pine Meadows Campground. There is a very large lake here. $20 for a paved site with a nice wood table. Big distance between sites. Fish in the lake.
It appears that we should make it to the City of Portland this morning. First thing on arriving, is to head over to a 24 Hour Fitness. Of course, the primary reason for being here is to visit with my friend Rowena. However, I'm missing exercise sooooo much! Gotta go to 24 first!
It's been a very long time since I was face to face with Rowena. I am unable to remember when that time was. We stay in contact by texting and email.
1. In the olden days, gas station attendants would come up to my car and ask:
■ What may I get you?
■ Check your oil?
■ Wash your windows?
Here in Oregon I've experienced none of these niceties.
■ Regular or premium?
■ Cash or card?"
..... is all that I get here in Oregon.
2. There are tons of RV dealers in California and Oregon. Their lots are filled with inventory. I do not know what to make of all the RVs in these lots? What happens to these dealers when hard times come again?
3. Interstate 5 in California vs I-5 in Oregon.
■ California the view is mostly desert in much of the state.
■ Oregon is mostly forests and farms with cows.
8pm - Birthday supper
Rowena and I went to a Filipino restaurant in order to eat lumpia. Remember, that I mentioned lumpia to you a couple days ago.
The lumpia was delicious. Crispy and good to eat!
