Rogue River To Winston, Oregon

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click

Yesterday I drove 75 miles from Rogue River to Winston, Oregon.


The day started by driving 25 miles to Sunny Valley, Oregon.


I primarily stopped here to visit the Applegate Wagon Trail Museum. I got here before the museum opened at 10:30 AM, so I took a short walk up the road to the old covered bridge. It’s the only one in Oregon that can be seen from Interstate Highway 5.


Here are some of the photos that I took…





As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…























Finally the museum opened…





When I got to the door, I was greeted with this surprise. I spoke to the owner a few days ago explaining I’m a travel blogger for the Seattle PI newspaper (which I am), and she did not say one word about the no photos policy. I will not patronize places with a no photo policy…





I went inside anyways and the owner allowed my to take only these two photos inside…






She invited me to take a quick walk-thru which I did. The museum look very well done and you may want to consider it if you are passing Exit 71 on Interstate Highway 5.





So, back outdoors I went. I took a few photos outside…



















Back on the road once again, 50 miles and one hour later I arrived at VFW Post #9745 in Winston, Oregon. I’ve stayed here once a few months back where I have an electrical hookup…











And the usual dinette window photo…




It’s nice and quiet back here. I expect to depart from here in two or three days.




 Yesterday was mostly sunny and 75 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 81 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
