Hillsboro, Oregon To Woodland, Washington

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 49 miles from Hillsboro, Oregon to Woodland, Washington.


In yesterday’s blog I was still in the shop in Hillsboro, Oregon getting repair work done. I described running into a problem with burnt spark plug wires.


Here’s what they (all eight to some degree) looked like…

A c;loser view of the damaged area…





I had bought them off of Ebay and as luck would have it, they had been shipped from Scapoose, Oregon, only 25 miles away. I contacted the seller and they agreed to honor the warranty and rep;laced the wires for free and only charge me $25 for the thermal socks. A quick trip in the Bronco and I returned with my new wires…


After the wires were installed and my paying a final total bill of $655, I was on my way. I hate going to dealerships because they are so expensive. But if this finally cures my low intermittent power problem, I’ll be a happy camper!  🙂





Passing through Portland, I stopped to get motorhome washed. The bay was so huge I was able to fit behind a fire truck with my motorhome and Bronco attached…





There was a sign saying all drivers must exit the vehicle before washing, but the next thing I knew washing commenced with me inside…


After paying my $32 wash fee, I was once again on my way.


45 minutes later,I arrived in Woodland, Woodland where I’m parked behind Moose Club #2394. I’ve stayed here in the past…




and the usual the dinette window view. Here it’s along side of the Lewis River…



Another club full of friendly people.


I expect to depart here tomorrow.




I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Forecast for today is cloudy and 64 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!
