Oregon – Coast or Inland?

Should I go inland? Or continue on the coast?

August 12, 2017

I’m at a critical decision point in my quest for sunshine!  When traveling on the Pacific coast, there are only a few good roads to take east over the mountains, especially with an RV.  Today I would be coming to Hwy 199, which goes inland to Grant’s Pass.  If I don’t take 199, then I am committed to traveling up the coast for a ways.

Avenue of the Giants

August 10 – 11, 2017

My time was up at Humboldt County Fairgrounds, but I wanted to stay in this area a little longer to visit the redwood parks and the Avenue of the Giants.  After doing a little online research, I decided to move a few miles to the Bear River Casino in Fortuna.

On to the Sierras!

From Colorado to Delta, UT

July 25 – 27, 2017

My appointment for the solar system install is for Friday, August 4th in California.  This isn’t the optimum time of the year to travel across western Colorado, Utah and Nevada.  Daytime temps were high 90s and even above 100.  So I wanted to get across this area as quickly as I could and get to the Sierra Nevada Mountains where it would be cooler.
