Aug 22, 2019 - 18th STOP - Pendleton, OR

8/21/19 - Last day in Long Beach, WA it rained most of the day so we did not do much. Just went shopping to stock up before we get to the Grand Canyon. 8/22/19 - Interesting ride from Long Beach to Pendleton. Only 3,910 miles for the trip so far. We were along the Columbia River most of the way except the last 45 miles. Three hydro Electric dams plus 30 miles or so of wind turbines along the north side of the river and about 10 miles on the south side as well. Out of the Columbia River Gorge the scenery changed to miles and mile of flat...

Nov 17, 2018 - Pendleton Oregon / Wildhorse RV Resort & Casino

Heading for dinner at the casino and subsidize our campground fees. Long haul today, mostly uphill it seemed as I watched the fuel gauge drop and drop more, pulled into The truck stop with fumes only and a very excited driver who thought we would be walking about 20 miles back!! Great truck but it lacks a decent sized fuel tank. Temp dropping to -5 tonight but we have our trailer furnace/ and an electric heater plus another trusty propane heater to keep us warm. They lied when the manufacturer said these RVs had Polar packages BUAHAHA...

Aug 13, 2018 - On our way to Pendleton

A smokey day for traveling to Pendleton, Oregon. We will be staying at Wildhorse Resort & Casino RV Park (as usual). The RV Park has upgraded all the electrical to 50 amps...which is awesome...it can get pretty hot & being able to run both air conditioners is a plus for us. Our stay here will be for a week. Time to hit the casino & Pete can get in some golf.

Sep 25, 2017 - Twin Falls to Pendleton, OR

Today we decided to look around Twin Falls a little. It is a modern town with many shops and nice houses. We took the car and visited Shoshone Falls. It is surrounded by a beautiful park with lots of nice viewing areas. The water was low so it was not flowing over the main falls but there were several smaller ones. About two hundred yards above the falls is a boat ramp that was apparently the site of a ferry crossing. The cable broke twice and the ferry went over the fall 212' killing three people the first time and one the second. Spent...

Sep 23, 2017 - FLIES!

Ken said that today's drive was beautiful, moving from the lush flat fields of Idaho, to thick pine forests, to rolling hills covered with golden grass. I barely looked out the window; I was too busy killing flies. We've had fly issues before when we've camped in fairgrounds and rodeo grounds. Animals attract flies and the warmth of our rolling home was an even bigger attraction. We had our windows closed because it was cold, but we did go in and out a few times while we were there. That's all it took. Before we left we each took a fly...

Sep 2, 2017 - On our way to Orofino, Idaho

We spent a month in Crescent, Oregon (thank you Bruce & Donna for getting us in at Big Pines) always wonderful to be there. On Thursday we headed for a one night stay back at Pendleton, Oregon (parked ourselves at Wildhorse Casino & RV Resort). It was pretty warm out, so we hid out in the casino for awhile & grabbed a bite to eat.

Jul 13, 2017 - Our stay at Pendleton, Oregon

We finally have a good signal so I can now play catch up with our updates. We didn't do much during our stay there, spent lots of time in the casino (where it was cooler than in the trailer). The park was having an issue with power outages, guess it was all those air conditioners running. Think they need to update their electrical equipment to accommodate all that usage.

Jul 5, 2017 - Moved on

Just a quick note, I am unable to update our journal because of the lack of a good signal. We left Leavenworth & currently we are back in Pendleton, Oregon. We tried to get into other parks in Washington, but they were all full because of the holiday. So as soon as I get a better signal, I'll bring you all up to date.

Jun 18, 2017 - Pendleton, Oregon

We spent a week in Crescent, while there we encountered more rain (it seems to be following us), we also had a little snow fall on us...which didn't stick. We stayed inside the trailer & stayed warm most of the week. We left Crescent on the 15th & landed in Pendleton, Oregon (another favorite hangout), we are here till the 22nd. we're staying at Wild Horse Resort/Casino. Pete wants to play some golf here (they have a beautiful course) & we have already hit the casino. Of course we've had two days of rain, as for today its cloudy but the...

May 15, 2017 - Pendelton, OR

A Couple of days at Crazy Horse Casino campground with plans to play golf here and catch up on our grocery shopping. So far we have not been able to play golf as it has turned cold and rained every day. Lots of Gin Rummy being played to pass the time away as we are having to stay inside the RV. I guess everyday cannot be perfect for our trip.

Apr 3, 2017 - Best steak ever!

One of the reasons Mike wanted to come this way was to stop in Pendleton Oregon to eat at Hamley’s Steakhouse again. It was the best steak we had ever had. So in Pendleton we saw there was a campground at a casino. Many times these are free or very cheap to encourage people to come so they will go into the casino. Not this place. It was $40 a night but we had hookups so that gives us a chance to clean out and fill up with fresh water, plus a place to safely unhook the rig so we can go into town. We did make it to Hamley’s. First we walked...

Nov 13, 2016 - Kelowna to Pendleton OR

We were up early wanting to get a good start on our day as we planned to travel about 400 miles before stopping for the day. John had hooked up to the fifth wheel the night before so all we had to do was disconnect our services, put the slides in and hit the road. We were on the road by 7:00 AM. Our route would take us south through Kelowna and along the Okanagan past Penticton, Oliver and then Osoyoos. We reached the US border around 11:00 am and crossed without much trouble although the US customs officer wanted to check our fridge for...
