HOME Again

Hi again! We are back from our NorCal / Oregon camping trip! What an amazing time! We did get back a few days early but only because we were ready to sleep in our own bed.  The weather was great up and down the coast. We really enjoyed the BEERS, sights and family time. When…

Day 9 – Crater Lake

The night was cold at 6700 ft elevation. Abigail and I woke up around 4 for food and changing. I re-wrapped her in her cocoon and we went back to sleep. Around 6 when the sun was coming up I put her in my sleeping bag with me and we cuddled for an hour until…

Day 8 – Mt Hood

On Sunday we woke relatively early to rain. The first real rainy day we had had since starting the trip. After 4 loads to the truck we were all packed! Our destination, Mt Hood only an hour down the road. One little town that we drove thru was Sandy, OR just outside of Portland about…

Day 7 – Mississippi Street Fair

I woke up at 630 with Abigail to feed and change her then I put her back down. It was early but we had chores to finish form the night before. I started two loads of laundry, took Cody out on the bike path outside the hotel, and made some awesome coffee while I updated…

Day 6 – PORTLAND!

We woke up to a misty ocean view. Donald made coffee and pancakes while I wrangled Abigail for the days trip into Portland. We headed north on hwy 101 around 9am. We went through Waldport and took hwy 34 east. A beautiful whimsy road that snaked along a river all the way to Corvallis, OR…

Day 5

At 915am we started our journey in a very overcast town of Port Orford.  The next town down the road was Bandon where we stopped for breakfast at the Minute Cafe.  For $15 we got a killer breakfast! We chatted with the locals and Abigail caught everyone’s attention. Across the street from the Minute Cafe…

Day 4 – Welcome to OREGON!!

On day 4 Abigail woke up at 4 and wanted to play. I love when she wants to play just not in the middle of the night. LOL I was up and down with her until 9am when we all finally decided it was time to start the day! We were up, packed and on…

Day 3 – Ave of the Giants, Arcata and Crescent City

The morning started with a family walk around the campground. The weather was wonderful except for the occasional mosquito. Before breakfast we each took turns watching Abigail while the other was able to get a great trail run in! A very cool mountain bike trail was close for our short run. The morning breakfast was…

Day 2 Usal Rd and the Lost Coast

Today we spent Abigail’s 3 month birthday on Usal Rd!! We started our day off in downtown Fort Bragg. Our first stop was at Roundman’s Smokehouse. What an amazing old school butcher shop! We picked up 2 sausages, chorizo and a treat for Cody. Breakfast was spent at Laurels Diner. A local joint complete with…
