Welcome to our 2012 trip journal!

We finished up our one year commitment as the Garden Grove Elks Lodsge RV Hosts in March and then took off for the Pacific Northwest. We had NO itinerary, we traveled as we pleased: meeting up with friends, attending an Alpenlite Rally, traveling short distances and sitting for a week just taking it leisurely. We were hoping that the Diesel prices will be kind to our wallets, but so far our wallets have not been that happy.

We have some amazing photos of the Oregon Coast, that is WHEN the sun came out. . . we did have to move inland for a while to get out of the coastal fog. We feel like we are solar powered and don't do cloudy every well. This trip is reminiscent of our very first RV trip in 1982 along Oregon Foggy Coast.

We were up at Silent Valley, our membership campground in the mountains, for the big Halloween Weekend. Then we stayed in Indio until Thanksgiving when we went back in Garden Grove to be with family & friends for the holidays.

Be sure to check out our other years of Trip Journals after browsing through these photos. See the DROP DOWN BOX in the UPPER RIGHT of this page for other journals.
