After my initial failure at the gas pumps to get the rig moving last Friday, I spent the weekend back at Flag City RV Resort waiting for Monday morning. I wasn’t comfortable traveling any further until I had someone check the engine for error codes. The rig went into gear on Monday morning, and I headed for an authorized Workhorse repair place about 15 miles away.
I had called ahead, so I didn’t have to wait too long for them to come out and hook up to the rig’s computer. The technician was stumped since it showed no error codes at all. He put the rig through its paces of going in and out of park, and couldn’t duplicate the problem either. Not much to do if there isn’t an error code found.
It was afternoon before I could leave the repair place, so I just went back to Flag City to spend night number six. Since I had left the park and then returned, they honored my Passport America rate. I appreciated that because I sure didn’t think the place was worth $54/night.
Tuesday, I got back on the road and headed north to just south of Redding, CA. Stayed at JGW RV park. I’m having a problem swallowing the prices at California RV parks. This one was $41 and supposed to be a pull through. Yeah, I pulled through to get into the site, but then had to unhook and move the car to the front because the back half of the pad was another site that would be backed into. What a pain for an overnight stay.
This morning I got back on I-5 and finally got the heck out of California. The scenery was nice, but it sure was slow going over the Siskiyou Mountains. Luckily, I’m traveling late enough in the year not to have to worry about snow and tire chains. I wish I could have taken some pictures of Mount Shasta, but I don’t do that when I’m driving the rig.
What relief I felt as I pulled into Valley of the Rogue State Park! I’ve got a nice pull through site (D-26) and plenty of room to breathe from my neighbors. Full hookups for $28/night, and Emma went crazy rolling around in the grass. It’s been six months since she could do that.
A short distance away is one of the park yurts. Some volunteers were cleaning it up, so I went over and asked if I could see the inside. I’m hoping my daughter, Robyn, and one or both grandgirls may be able to visit me at Harris Beach this summer, and they have yurts as well.
Here’s what it looks like inside. Pretty nice, I think.
I have reservations to stay here four nights. My plan is to be in Bandon, OR, on the coast on Sunday for a couple of days of training before I begin my stay at Harris Beach. Crater Lake National Park is less than one hundred miles away, so I’m thinking of doing a day trip over there while I’m here. I know all the roads around the lake aren’t open yet, but I’ve never been there before so I’ll give it a go.
This is the view out my kitchen table window. Not too shabby. Sure beats looking in your neighbors window. Forecast for tonight is for temps to get down to 38*. Guess I’ll make sure the heat is on. Been some time since I’ve been where it’s that chilly.
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
