Wilsonville, Oregon

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 145 miles from Lacey, Washington to Wilsonville, Oregon.

I departed at 8:10 AM driving in fog which became dense at times and stayed with me until I crossed into Oregon…

I took Interstate Highway 205…the by-pass around Portland, Oregon. There was so much traffic on 205, I wondered if anyone was using Interstate Highway 5 through Portland…


After three hours of intense and dangerous driving ( I hate Interstate Highways…but sometimes you have to use them if you want to make any progress in a timely manner), I arrived tired and parked overnight at Moose Lodge #1598 in Wilsonville where they provided an electrical connection so I could use my electric heater…


Here’s the usual dinette window photo…


I spent the afternoon reading, taking a nap, doing some computer work and visiting with the local Moose members. I’ll continue my southerly journey later this morning. Google Earth is telling me I’ve got 647 miles to go until I arrive at Mary’s home at Murphys, California.

Yesterday’s high temperature was 65 degrees with partly cloudy/sunny skies. At 5:00 AM when I arose thus morning it was 43 degrees! Brrr! Time to put on some miles heading south!

Last night I watched another old movie from the 1930’s. This time it was 1939 – The Hunchback Of Notre Dame starring Charles Laughton. Another classic!

Enjoying friendly Moose clubs 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!
