We were scheduled to leave the Whalers Rest Thousand Trails near Newport, Ore., today, but by Sunday evening I had had all I could take of the cold, the wet, and the dreariness and told Miss Terry to get ready to hit the road Monday morning instead.
And wouldn’t you know it, after days of heavy clouds and rain we awoke to a beautiful blue sky overhead! But the weatherman said more rain was on its way so we decided to get out while the getting was good.
We left the Thousand Trails a little before 11 a.m., took US Highway 20 east to Interstate 5 and turned south. Sometime around 2:30 p.m., after a stop for fuel at a Pilot Truck Stop, we pulled into the Escapees Timber Valley co-op in Sutherlin, Ore., with 160 miles behind us. When we left Newport it was 57° and when we stepped out of the motorhome in Sutherland it was 67° and we sure weren’t complaining!
This is only our second stop at Timber Valley and it’s a very nice place. Many of the co-op members put their lots into a rental pool when they are not using them and they are all wide, level, and very well maintained, with 50/30 amp electric full hookups.
