A New Travel Log

Several people have recently commented on how much they enjoy reading about our travels, --- so here goes a new one.  After postponing for the holidays, first Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and finally New Years we left this morning for California and hopefully some warmer temperatures.  Nightly temps in Salem in the twenties with daily highs in the thirties were starting to wear on us.  Our first day's destination was Valley of the Rogue State Park, located between Grants Pass and Medford.  Jeanette and Buster are shown in the above photo arriving back at the motor home after a great bird walk here in the park.  You can see our bird list here.  Because we use these travel logs posts not only to entertain others, but also for kind of a repository of information that we can resource later I will be including tidbits of information that you might consider trivial, but for us they will be import facts that we can retrieve in the future.  For example today we paid the lowest amount for diesel fuel when we filled up in Albany.  Two dollars and twenty-seven cents was the advertised price less a forty cent Safeway discount, meant we paid an amazing low amount of $1.87.  We paid twenty-four dollars for our campsite tonight with water and electricity. The temperature was 27 degrees when we left Salem at nine, and 48 when we arrive here at the park at 2:00.  Tomorrow our plan is to drive over the Siskiyou Mountains and stop for the night at Sycamore Campground, a favorite of ours in Red Bluff, California.
