While we are on our way, I transmit APRS on my amateur radio from the Jeep, and wherever another APRS radio can hear us, we get located on a Google Map. Thanks to Google Earth, I can make a map of the entire trip.
Our trip was to Osoyoos, BC, to attend the Escape Trailer Rally and then to visit family and friends on the way home.
On our way home, we spent a day at Crater Lake National Park. It has been 4 years since we were last there. This is a place where you first look over the rim at the lake and just say, Oh My!! It is really gorgeous and so I had to take a bunch of photos. On this trip, the eastern rim road was still closed because of snow, and the northern entrance and western rim road had just opened a few days before we arrived, so there was lots of snow visible. It was calm so the reflections on the lake were great. It looked like there was still a skim of ice on the lake below us.
We started today on our trip to the Escape Customer Appreciation Rally in Osooyos, BC, just "down the street" from the Escape Trailer factory in Chilliwack, BC. Every year about this time, they host a rally for Escape trailer owners. We thought we should go to one, so we are on our way. Today, we traveled 384 miles to Chiloquin, OR, and are staying overnight in Waterwheel RV Park. It is a delightful place on the banks of the Williamston River. Our neighbor told us there is good fly fishing here. We are enjoying the peace and quiet after a long day of driving. Tomorrow, we are off to Yakima, WA, where we will camp overnight at the Yakima Sportsman State Park.
Retirement is great. We bought a travel trailer and are exploring National Parks. (Actually, we bought one and sold it and bought a second one better suited to us. It happens...) And I have time to do some woodworking projects and things around the house. And now I have gotten interested in ham radio so there goes any free time.
