Oregon or Bust

We planned to leave at 9 this morning from Corning, CA and head to 7 Feathers RV Resort up in Canyonville, OR.  That’s a distance of 265 miles.  But both Carol and I woke up early, around 5:30 or so, and we just decided to get going to get a head start on any weather.

So, at 8:30 we left the RV park and went to refuel and fill up the propane too.  By the time we got all that accomplished, it was 9am and we were back on our original schedule.  We did check the weather, and it looked pretty good.

We have a small portable inverter that Carol can use while we are driving to power her computer.  She can tether to her phone and have full internet access anywhere she can get good cell coverage.  Fortunately, most of the interstates have good coverage.  So while we were driving, she was able to access the highway cameras and look at live conditions as we drove.  Everything looked to be in good shape over the passes.  As you can see, when we got to Siskiyou Summit (highest point on I-5), the weather was, to our happy surprise, gorgeous and there was no snow to be seen!

We entered Oregon expecting bad weather, maybe some wind and ice, snow, etc.  But other than a lot of frost on the plants, it was a beautiful day!

We arrived at 7 Feathers right before 3pm, filled up the RV with gas, and parked it!

Tomorrow, we plan to head home.  Though the forecast calls for strong easterly winds and possible snow.  So we shall have to see how it goes with that.

I had to avoid the Siskiyou Mts. in 2006 when I left Fort Flagler in Washington for Bandon, OR. The coast highway was a real challenge as a storm came through, but better than the mountains. Glad your trip today was ice free! :)
