Had to get up at 6:00 this morning to be ready for our appointment at 8:00 with the Camping World folks. It was no big deal, we just wanted to get the new Surge Guard installed. The parking lot at Camping World was very full of RV’s but there didn’t seem to be much service going on. Maybe they were all parked and just waiting for parts, I’m not sure.
After we checked in, we drove the car over to McDonald’s to get some breakfast and coffee. I wanted to make sure that “Anonymous” saw that I could bust a smile for my Cup of Joe in the morning!
After a quick breakfast we hurried back to Camping World to pick up the motorhome and get back on our way. We checked out the Surge Guard where it had been installed and it looked just fine. We made a couple of other purchases (don’t you always at CW?) and were out the door ASAP.
Once we got down to Eugene we turned West on Hwy. 126 toward the coast. Of course, there was a bunch of road construction going on which slowed us down. Seems like an annual summer event no matter which road we take.
We had planned to stop for the night at The Mill Casino in North Bend (near Coos Bay). We have stayed here a few times, but were always in the FHU RV park sites. This time we decided to try their dry camping lot. They ask that you check in at the RV office, but there is no charge for dry camping and you can stay more than one day if you want. The dry lot was filled with about 20 to 25 RV’s today, but still plenty of room for us.
The actual RV park is very nice. The Trailer Life Book lists a rate of $28 to $45, but we’ve never paid that much. If you get the casino Player’s Card (it is free) you get a much better rate. The park has full hook-up spaces, 70 are pull-thrus. They have 30/50 amp service, WiFi, cable TV, restrooms and showers. I’m not doing an RV park review because we are not staying in the RV park this time.
We went into the casino tonight to grab a quick dinner. We ate at the sports bar and got chili cheese dogs, which are certainly not on any healthy eating plan I know of…..but they sure were good! It will be an early to bed night for us. We’re just tired today.
Tomorrow morning we’ll be driving down to Klamath, California where we will be staying at one of our member parks for 2 nights. There is no rain predicted for tomorrow, so we should have a nice drive. It will be fun to be able to check out this RV park that we have never been to before.
Until next time…..so long for now!
