In Oregon

Our site at TT Bend

After one night in Alturas, CA we arrived at Thousand Trails Bend on May 11th.  The park is actually in Sun River, OR which is a bit south of Bend.     This park closes over the winter , actually they haven‘t opened the whole park yet…there are probably only about 20 RV’s here right now.  It’s pretty chilly, we’ve had to break out our long pants and sweatshirts.  Today was especially cool, as a matter of fact we had some rain/snow mix fall this afternoon.

Except for one trip to La Pine we haven’t left the park.  It’s such a pretty park, very wooded and quiet…love the tangy smell of the pine trees.  It’s a great walking and relaxing park…which is exactly what we’ve been doing!

I couldn't believe it when I read where you are! As soon as we finish up our licensing in TX, we're heading up to La Pine for some motorhome work! Probably be another 3 or 4 weeks before we get there. Loved seeing the pictures. Looks like a wonderful park. Hope it warms up before we get there!

How funny!! We've stayed at TT Bend a few times and love the park. No sewer hook-ups here but still a great place to stay and a beautiful area to visit.

Where are you these days? We're in Harrisburg now, after work done in La Pine. More work here this week (new computer desk and alignment), then on to northern OR/WA/BC for the summer.

We're in Rochester, WA (near Chehalis) visiting Dave's brother. The plan is to be in WA until we begin our trek south in August.

New computer desk... how fun!!!!
