Wimer, Oregon

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 142 miles from Cottage Grove to Wimer, Oregon.

I’m expecting to arrive at Mary’s home in central California, October 15th and depart November 30th. While there, I’ll do routine maintenance, minor repairs and major cleaning of the Bronco and motorhome.,

 

Wimer, Oregon… is 13 miles north of Rogue River. It’s the location of Mary’s second home which is just completing construction. She’s not here right now, but has several neighbors and friends watching the place when she’s absent.

Most of yesterday’s trip was om Interstate 5…

The covered bridge in Wimer, Oregon has a 10,000 pound load limit. The motorhome weighs 16,000 pounds so I have to take a different route around it…

 Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny and 80 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 83 degrees.

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