September 8 – Camping in Castle Rock, WA – Videos Now Available

We decided to camp at the local KOA instead of the nearby state park so we could have cell phone service and keep up-to-date on Erma’s progress and be able to watch the Ohio State football game on Saturday afternoon. : )

After setting up camp, we visited the local Mt. St. Helens Visitor’s Center to view the film and exhibits.

We received an e-mail from the Oregon State Park organization reporting that the Ainsworth State Park would not be open until late September due to the Columbia River Gorge fire.

We will revert to plan B and camp along the Oregon Coast near Walport/Newport that is between our two other Oregon Coast campgrounds in Tillamook and Coos Bay. Walport is just west of Junction City where Winnebago will start building the Class A units. We will attempt to get a plant tour.

Also, there is a fire near Crater Lake National Park and the Mazama Campground is on alert.

We thought that were going to get trumped and not be able to enter closed national parks but President Trump agreed Wednesday to the three-month debt ceiling and funding proposal.

Our friends in Florida are helping us by removing some furniture off of our lanai and front porch and repairing a sagging eve trough.

Nuts and Bolts

I finally found an app that I can use on my PC to reduce the size of our videos that can be loaded on the journal – 480x640. So, there are several videos that are now available to view.
