Way past due an update, lots has happened in the last month.
We did a lot of site seeing in southern Oregon. Glad that we had the opportunity to see this wonderful area of our great country. There is lots to see and do on Southern Oregon.

On one of our days off we drove up to Corvallis to visit some old friends there. Had a great visit and some ok Pizza Hut Pizza. The good company made up for the lack of really good pizza

Our plans were to leave Gold Hill right after Labor Day and head to Arizona. Things change, our replacements showed up 3 weeks early. So we decided to make a trip back up to Washington for a few weeks then head south. We left Gold Hill Monday Aug. 17th. We went as far as Kelso, WA.
When we arrived at the RV Park the truck was leaking fuel bad, Soooo I made an appointment with Stirling GMC in Longview for the next morning.
They found the problem but had no parts, soooo we was set to wait a while to get parts before we could move on. The service manager called the regional manager and had them expedite parts. One part came out of a dealer in Texas and another from Colorado. Both were overnighted to Longview and Stirling had them at 10:00 AM Tuesday morning. They got the truck right in and had it fixed the next morning. I can’t say enough about the good service I received from this dealer.

We liked the RV Park we were staying in so stayed another day after truck was done. Brook Hollow RV Park is a really nice park with concrete pads and a nice grassy area. Far enough away from Interstate that is was nice and quite in the park.

Saturday morning we headed out for Mount Vernon, WA and arrived here about 2:00 PM. Bad traffic through Seattle and Everett. Surprised everyone here by just showing up. We have been having lots of fun visiting with family. We will be here for a couple more weeks then head to Arizona.
Until next time take ya’ll take care.
