#WestwardFro Misadventures

So why am I posting pics of my RV? This is where I live. I had to get to Oregon and I wanted to live tiny, but with limited cash on hand. Besides, I am not handy, so doing repairs or building anything was not on my agenda. I was certain that my options in SW Oregon were limited and if you check out Zillow.com, overpriced and nasty.

It became apparent rapidly, that I should have planned my trip differently.  A new truck requires a hitch with sway control. This is purchase is right up there with my my first iPod and mulching blade lawnmower.imagesHitch with Sway Control



I would have replaced the hot water heater with my current Suburban brand instead keeping the 30 year old unit that went bad within 2 weeks after I arrived. I would have have stripped the entire wall down to the studs replaced the useless shelving and replaced the smelly refrigerator with a true bidirectional and installed the  Combo Washer Dryer. Pulled that disgusting rug and create a herringbone design with wood flooring. Put memory foam Posture Pedic Mattress in my bedroom. Updated the electrical to handle the solar panel to power the unit. Make sure I had lavender, Almond Oil and Epsom salt to soak away the stiffness from driving for 10 hours per day.

I wish I could have waited to come after it had stopped raining in Oregon. Evidently this was the longest and wettest winter on record. I could have gone more North and explored the waterfalls of Minnesota. I could have experienced Yellowstone and Mount Rushmore. Camped on the open range in Wyoming and learned to fish for my dinner…err buy fish for my dinner. I could have been preparing for my life in Oregon.  I loved camping in Redwood Forest but I would have preferred to camp near Crater Lake


Or camp all up and down the Oregon Coast, because there are much nicer coastal towns than raggedy Coos Bay.

There is no love lost on this town where I work. What makes it tolerable are some of the genuinely coolest, craziest, boss people on the planet, and I get to work with them. And surrounding Oregon is absolutely the prettiest place in America. I can’t wait to go on my next adventure.
