May 2 - Good-bye Northwest... Heading East
|We never tire of the drive through the Gorge|
When we set off this morning (about 10:30am local time) I had an easy 165 mile day planned. But it turned into a great day for travel, things were running smoothly, traffic was light and manageable, and we would have arrived at our original destination about 1:30pm... much earlier than felt right. So the decision was made to continue on. When, a couple hours later, we finally decided to throw out the anchor just outside La Grande Oregon we had covered 272 miles.
We're at Eagles Hot Lake RV Park, where we've stayed a couple different times in the past. Those past visits were for a few days each and we did some extensive exploring of the area. This time we're here for just this one night and will continue on tomorrow... probably chewing off another 200 plus miles before stopping somewhere between Boise and Pocotello Idaho.
Traveling conditions were positively ideal today. At times localized mountain winds played with the bus-house but nothing we haven't handled many times before. Full sun skies and warm temps made for easy driving most of the time.
We, Dar and I, had some good conversation during the day today and I think we've made some real progress on plans for Sabbatical II. But more on that at another time.
