We arrived in Tumwater, Washington about 3:00 this afternoon. It was 36F when we pulled away from Jack's Landing RV Park in Grant's Pass, Oregon this A.M. Yes, we could tell we were back in the Pacific Northwest in the winter. We enjoyed a pleasant drive today (thank goodness) and experienced a mix of fog, light rain showers, and bright sunshine.
It looks like the trouble with the RV was an easy fix, once they finally found the source of the problem. We'll be driving
Since it was Saturday, and not a weekday, we decided to drive straight through the center of Portland on I-5 rather than take the bypass. Truthfully, the bypass can be more clogged with traffic sometimes. We had not gone this route in the last 4 trips up and down this interstate. We noticed a new sky tram moving through the air as we entered Portland. When did that get there????
I miss our family when I'm away from Tumwater, and it is always good to come back to see them again. However, I have discovered during the past 18 months that I do like to have "roots" and return to those roots from time to time. By roots I mean, a hometown to return to....the old familiar faces and places of "our neighborhood". I don't want, or need, the roots of a sticks and bricks home. Our home on wheels is the best choice for us. This way we can enjoy the roots, and then break free of them to go out on the road exploring new places. This fulltiming lifestyle is truly our great journey.
Until next time.....so long for now!
