Jun 15, 2019 - Crater Lake

After our drive west, we had decided to take a few weeks to rest and recover. We choose a nice campground in the Willamette National Forest on the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. This area is known for fly fishing in the numerous mountain creeks and streams. Due to Bruce's cranky back, he decided to leave the fishing gear in the coach. While here, with the exception of the last few days when a heat wave hit, we experienced some pretty nice weather with most days in the 60’s/70’s and nights in the 40’s and 50’s. While we were here, we...

May 24, 2019 - Westfir, OR

Hello - it’s Memorial Day weekend and we are in Westfir, OR for our first extended stop of the summer. Westfir is about 100 miles from both Crater Lake National Park and Bend, OR. After Abilene, we made several one night stops including Oakley, KS, Limon, CO, Cheyenne, WY, Rock, Springs, WY, Idaho Falls, ID, Missoula, MT, and Kelso, WA. We also made two or three night stops in Ogden, UT, Deer Park, WA, and Ellensburg, WA. During the trip we faced a fair amount of rain, some snow and pretty cool weather. However, it appears that we got out...

Jul 6, 2016 - Near Eugene, OR - Casey's Riverside RV Park in Westfir, OR

Stayed here for 2 nights to explore Eugene, OR. The park is situation next to the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. It had only 56 sites, more than half facing the river. There is a swimming pool, a self serve soft cone machine for $1 and veggie planters with all kinds of veggies. The office staff asked that you have them harvest the veggies so that you don't damage the plants. Our site, #74, is close to the restrooms and Pond. So far, the park seems quiet and a nice place to stay for a few days.

Aug 6, 2015 - Westfir, Or

We arrived at Caseys RV in the Willamette Forest. This is such a nice little campground located infront of a river which we can hear running at night when we sleep. What a way to sleep. They still have the self serve soft serve ice cream machine that we used every night after supper. We decided to drive to Bend, which is on the other side of the mountains, East of Westfir, Or. There was a camp ground which we wanted to have a look at. Once we came thru the mountains we took a wrong turn and drove South. We didn't get too far before we...

Jun 20, 2014 - The Face at the Window

Each morning, when I pull up the shade, I look out and see this face at our window. What is he feeling? Not sad. But not happy. I just had to take his picture. At Canyon Trails RV Park, in Boulder City, where we spent the winter, our tree had eyes on it. One particular "eye" looked right in at us through our dining room window. I wish I'd taken its picture. Since these interesting things seem to pop up once in a while, I think I'll start photographing them and sharing them in the journal. It may be fun to have a collection.

Jun 11, 2014 - Casey's Riverside RV Park

Wednesday we left the beautiful Rogue River, one of the so called “green” rivers because of it’s very green, but not algae, color. We are off to Westfir in the low mountains southeast of Eugene, Oregon on Hwy 58. GPS Google Earth: 43.760115 -122.526109 Elevation 1041 feet (above the fog, they say....and below the snow) Near the town of Oakridge, the mountain bike capital of Oregon, Westfir was once a logging town (as was Oakridge). The mill closed in the 1970s. Besides tourism, there is is little economy happening here. Instead of the Rogue...

Aug 14, 2013 - Westfir, Or

Sadly we left 7 Feathers heading North. There was a lot of smoke in the air along the I5 until we drove thru Roseburg. We drove about 2.5 hours to Westfir which is about 40 miles East of Eugene along highway 58. Casey's RV park is located along side a river which sounds incredible at night. As you can see, we are right on the river. After setting up and eating lunch we drove through Oakridge, which was the same as the last time we drove through......forgettable. We back tracked and drove to Westfir, population 330, where we discovered the...

Summer Trip 2013

Jul 12, 2013 - Westfir, OR

From Astoria we drove 240 miles south along the Willamette Valley to Westfir, at the southern tip of the valley. What impressed us most about the Willamette Valley is how much like New England it looked. Red barns, hills in the background, maybe a little drier than New England. It even has a few covered bridges! The floor of the valley is much wider and flatter than any place in New England, however. The campground gets some sun which we are happy with. The forest is very thick so as we drove in we were concerned that it might be dark and...

Sep 11, 2012 - Westfir Oregon - Casey's Riverside RV Park (outside of Eugene)

Wake up and Danna wants to investigate the park for a possible investment. We looked at parks in the past but always found issues with them and never found one we could buy for ourselves. I already checked the Internet and found basic information, like they want $2m for it. Anyway, the numbers don’t defend the price, so we think even though this is a pretty park, it won’t work out. We load up the bikes and head to GreenRiver park at the other end of Oakridge it has a small bike trail. The trail crosses and then follows the river, very...

Sep 10, 2012 - Westfir Oregon - Casey's Riverside RV Park (outside of Eugene)

Shopping day in Eugene. We wake up to partly cloudy skies, like it was the day before and load up the bikes. We are going to bike Eugene and then shop. 10 miles from Eugene Momma Nature tells us that any biking will be a wet task. We call an audible (after all we are in Duck country…Go DUCKS!) and do WalMart and Costco. Still raining around 10:30, but the guy at Costco swears it will break by noon, so we head to free Wi-fi at McDonalds to get some work-work done. Did I mention we buy too much at Costco? But since there is no sales tax it...

Sep 9, 2012 - Westfir Oregon - Casey's Riverside RV Park (outside of Eugene)

Got up early and headed out of Reedsport on highway 38 towards Eugene(ish). Very pretty highway follows the river valley then they save you a hill climb by sending you through a tunnel . Finally got to go through the town of Drain. How many times on I-5 have you seen the sign for Drain and wondered what the town was like? Well wonder no more, small town with one cute building that we assume is a B&B, not much else other than the RR tracks. 38 ends at I-5 and we followed the familiar highway past Cottage Grove. Headed out east on 58 towards...

Aug 4, 2012 - Day 2 - On the road again

We got up early in the morning to get an early start. We left driving South on the I-5 heading to Westfir, Oregon. Crossing over the Columbia River we were detoured off the I-5 thru Portland. It was a bit slow but not too bad. It was hot again as we continued driving South. We watched a lot of farmers cutting and bailing hay. The funniest thing we saw was in the back of a small pick-up truck. I was behind it for a time and was watching the dog in the back of the bed thinking how odd it was to keep a dog in the back of a p/u truck travelling...
