Moving south.

Location, Redding, CA

Continuing with Wednesday in Eugene – We spent the morning at the RV and took a walk around Armitage park. This is quite a large park with a lot of open space and areas for large groups to meet, BBQ, and play. After lunch we drove to the east side of Springfield to meet Debbie from Portland who had driven down for the day, and to meet her mother. We had a pleasant hour with Debbie’s mother.

From Springfield we drove to Dick and Barbara’s house and they took us on a tour of Eugene. Again, we had a very nice time talking over old times. We really need to stay in touch better with people we know from days past.

Nice Oregon Ducks football stadium.
Nice deck over looking the lake at Dick and Barbara's house.

We left Eugene on Thursday morning and drove down I-5 to Roseburg, OR where we had reservations at Twin Rivers RV Park west of the city on the Umpqua River. We have stayed in this park before and it is quite nice. Lots of green grass. We were only able to get reservations for one night so decided to move to our friends Gary and Judy’s dead end street for the last night.

We had 2 enjoyable days of conversation and playing games of Sequence. The ladies won last night so we need a re-match. We will get them next time. Having the trailer parked in the street worked very well as it allowed us to push the midnight hour with our game.

Gary and I were old Navy buddies while Clyda and Judy met when they were 3 years old and went through school together.

Tonight we are at Sacramento River RV Park in Redding, CA where the temperature was about 100 degrees today. Tomorrow we will be in Kelseyville, CA for a few days.
