Yesterday we had one of the shortest moves ever in our sixteen years as fulltime RVers, just 7 1/2 miles. But oh what a difference that short distance made! Since we didn’t have far to go we didn’t get up until 8:30 a.m., which is later than usual for us on a traveling day. Then […]

Our two weeks at the South Jetty Thousand Trails preserve is over and today is moving day for us. I can’t say that we’re sad to be leaving, and I doubt we’ll return to this campground again anytime soon.

The weather here in Brookings has been typical of the Oregon coast in the summer – cool, foggy in the morning, and usually by mid-day the sun breaks through and burns the fog off. And then, sometime around 6 or 7 p.m. the fog starts to move back in over the water. Yesterday was no […]
