May 11, 2016 - Odessa, Washington

We camped at the Odessa Golf and RV Park. We were there to visit our first Great Granddaughter, Bailey. She is the prettiest and happiest baby I have seen. Ben and Ashley met in Alaska when the both worked on the Alaution (spell check cant find the correct spelling) Islands. We were there for one week. Ben and Ashley live in a very small farming community where Ben's relatives all farm. They built themselves a brand new house. Bailey is really easy to figure out. If she isn't smiling then she either wants her diapers changed or more food....

Jul 9, 2010 - Too Hot! Heading Home via Hwy 21

Amber waves of grain, America, America! Our decision to end our Northwest adventure was due to the heat-too damn HOT. We took the first highway South from Grand coulee Dam to Oregon which was Highway 21 - then we planned to head home and straight to the central coast where we knew it would be cool. Highway 21 cut through sections of land with wheat planted as far as the eye could see. We were unaware of the amount of wheat grown in this part of Washington state. It was simply amazing!

Oct 16, 2009 - Odessa, Washington

Sunday, Monday, Oct. 18 & 19 Odessa, Washington What can one say about Odessa, Washington. They have a small community park and we were welcomed to camp there as guests. So if you are ever in the Odessa area, it was a nice safe place to park. John went out each day hunting and I stayed with the home, catching up on my e-mail and my travel log. They have a gas station, a grocery store, a burger barn (which was closed at the time) and a biker bar (which was open). Quiet, interesting town with interesting people.

Jun 27, 2007 - Day 3, Odessa, WA

Arrived Odessa at 1415 hours after travelling some 83 miles. Departed Vantage on the Columbia River around 0730 hours - climbed out of the river valley for over a 2 miles and then was greated by a wonderful view of the entire river and the gourge - amazing sight like a small grand cayon! From here we headed West through the fertile farm land - lots of wheat and fruit trees - all irrigated by the Columbia River irrigation system. Without the water this entire area would not be producing anything but sage brush! The temp climbed as we rode...

Jun 25, 2005 - Overnight

Saturday-Sunday, June 25-26, 2005 Making our first overnight trip made us a bit apprehensive. We spent the week before leaving lining the cupboard shelves, making the bed, and organizing dishes, silverware, pots and pans, towels, etc. During the week we brought Romeo and Juliette out to the motorhome, one at a time, to get them used to being in it. They seemed to do well. After getting up early we set-up the BrakePro and attached the car to the motorhome. It took us much longer than we thought it would since we were doing this for the first...
