Sep 17, 2020 - Chiloquin OR

The 95 miles went smooth but Smokey, very Smokey...We arrived safely at our friends, the Martins home then quickly setup. Dave had only a couple hours to fly fish and he took advantage of the time. On our way from Eugene to Chiloquin it was not only Smokey but we pasted by the burned out forest floor of a fire that rage through the area a few day before. This is just an overnight stop on our way to the Reno area, but we’ll be back and we’ll stay longer in the spring. Thank you to the Martins for hosting us...

May 26, 2020 - Friends Along the Way

As luck would have it, we departed Mound House with the weather ideal, plentiful sunshine, no wind to speak of and the traffic was nil. What a perfect start to what we regard, Back to Normal! After all, you may have discovered that on the road is where we feel the most comfortable... This day, the 324 mile drive north was to a little town just north of Klamath Falls, OR and to land at our friends home. The Martins have a nice grassy area for us that faces the Williamson River. What an idealic spot ! For a pair of fly fishers as we are, this...

Crisis this morning. We couldn’t find our password book. Finally found it underneath all the files in the file drawer but in the process the drawer came off its hinge. Fixed that too. A hardware store in Klamath Falls had the shower head holder. Following route 97 we climbed to over 5100 feet to reach our destination Water Wheel RV Park in Chiloquin OR. Gotta love the mountains.

Jul 5, 2018 - Waterwheel

Waterwheel RV Park & Campground is located next to the Williamson River just before it flows into Upper Klamath Lake north of Klamath Falls Oregon. The Williamson River flows north–south through Chiloquin, where it receives the Sprague River from the east. The Williamson River and crystal-clear Spring Creek converge just north of Chiloquin in Collier Memorial State Park . The Williamson River is regionally famous for its quality trout fishery and consistently produces trophy fish. Spring Creek gushes dramatically out of a nearby spring, and...

2018 RV Adventure

Oct 7, 2017 - Winter travels and I think it's time to restart the journal entries

About 2 years ago, I became weary to a certain extent, with the burden of keeping up the journal. When we began spending more time at our Timber Valley location in Sutherlin, Oregon, writing in the journal was not as important to me. The purpose for this site initially was to chronicle our travels and now that we will be doing an extensive winter travel itinerary, it seems time to pick up the pen so to speak and let my journal share my thoughts. There will be one significant change to the way I will be updating the journal and that is...

Dream On

Jun 19, 2016 - Rally Time!

We're on the road again, heading for La Grande, OR and the NROA West coast rally. It is being held at Grande Hot Springs RV Resort (formerly Eagles Hot Lake Resort). We stopped for night at Kla Mo Ya casino on highway 97 near Chiloquin, OR. Nice little casino with free RV parking. The goal this night was to find a place to watch game 7 of the NBA finals. Warriors lost but as far as the finals go the entire series did not disappoint. We'll be on the early for the longer leg of the journey. We're breaking our rule of no more 300 travel miles...

Jun 19, 2015 - Last day at train Mountain

Moved the rig over to Rodger and Carol's this morning. We ran out of reserved time at the State Park and they invited us to stay at their place. They have a wonderful home. We had gone over the night before and had pizza. Had a chance to just sit and relax before Carol was hit with lots of family company. Emy their little cat came out to the rig and lay on the bottom step hissing at Phoenix, Phoenix would growl back. This went on for about 30 minutes. Will leave tomorrow for Seven Feathers.

Jun 18, 2015 - More Trains

June 18, 2015 Another day working on the railroad. We have had a good time here and want to come back. Have met great people. Went to dinner at Rodger and Carol’s last dinner. They have a wonderful little house, just the size we would eventually like. We will be moving the RV over there today for one night. Our reservations are up here and someone else has our spot. Tomorrow we will head towards the coast.

Jun 17, 2015 - Train Mountain

June 17, 2015 3rd day at Train Mountain, WOW what a day. Spent all morning weeding the Memorial Garden along with 6 other women. Hot, dusty and dirty. I believe I got dehydrated as that afternoon I had a root beer and 3 bottles of water. We had a nice finish to the day as we went for a ride on Rodger and Carol’s train at 4:30 and did not get back until 7. More weeds to pull tomorrow.

June 16, 2015 2nd day at Train Mountain I helped in the kitchen this morning. The Union Pacific holds training seminars once a month here and they are fed breakfast an lunch. I helped with lunch. Cut up potatoes, watermelon, and pork loin. Also had green salad, broccoli salad, green beans, stroganoff, rolls and pies. That took care of the morning and about 1 p.m. we left for Klamath Falls to pick some things us. Tried to get a hold of my PA to get my prescription filled but no luck. Came home and finally around 5 they called back so it was...

Jun 15, 2015 - Train Mountain

June 15, 2015 we are so use to early starts in the morning we tend to get to our new park too early to check in. Happened again today. Luckily our spot was empty. At Valley of the Rouge we had to wait and even at 1:00 p.m. it wasn’t open and they had to give us a different spot. Talked to Roger Rude and then headed out to Train Mountain. It is the work week and there are people everywhere doing different things. Unloading trains, repairing track, cleaning up around the building, repainting scenery and that was just in the main yard....

Sep 26, 2013 - More from Oregon

On September 5th we began our second trip down the Oregon Coast; it probably won’t be our last. We began at a county campground in the tiny town of Rockaway Beach. It was a treat to be back on the coast, but during most of our time here it was gray and rainy. We made several trips into the small town and got several chuckles as we watched 3 senior citizen police volunteers. They were conducting a survey to see if drivers would stop when people entered the crosswalks. They would walk out with their clipboard and record license plate numbers...
