|Shadow, Our Driver|
Most of this trip is not exactly virgin territory for us but we will stop & visit some places we haven't been before. We will also be back in our old stomping grounds where we lived before moving to New Mexico.
This is our annual (maybe last) trek to the Pacific Northwest.
Our first stop is Centralia, WA for a couple of days for some work on our coach. We will also visit some gourd friends who moved nearby.
Next stop is Castle Rock, WA for a Tiffin Rally (Tiffin is the manufacturer of our motorhome). We haven't been to one in a long time but this should be fun. Bob & Judy Tiffin will be there along with several of their service techs. There is a long list of fun activities & of course lots of food planned.
Our next stop is Troutdale, OR just outside of Portland. We will be there for a week. I used to work at the VA in Portland but this is an area I have not explored & there's a lot I didn't get to
see in Portland so this will give us some time for both of us to explore Portland & the surrounding areas. Al has never been to Portland so it will all be new to him. One of my friends who was a Sheltie breeder lives in Vancouver so I might just stop & visit while we are there. It's just across the river from Portland so it's not very far & I haven't seen her since we left Washington 7 years ago.

The following week will be Salem, OR. Neither one of us have been to so it should be fun.
Our final destination is Allie & Shadow's favorite place, Newport, OR where we will spend the next 2 months. We kinda like it too. Lots of things to do, great restaurants & the smell of salt air. What's not to like!
If any of you live near our stops please let me know. We'd love to say hi!
