Here We Go!
January 2015 picked out our Fifth wheel. We decided on a 33′ Glacier Peak fifth wheel, made by Outdoor RV . It is manufactured in La Grande, Oregon. Brought it home on the Ferry (we have to remember to watch the tides when using the ferry).
First trip with G.P. We headed to Bend, OR to celebrate Cristen’s Birthday! We successfully completed the Bend “Ale Trail”! We had a great time, it was in the high 60’s and sunny (in January). Bend is a beautiful city, trendy yet quaint. We ate at a restaurant called “Chow“, it was the best breakfast we all ever had!
Heartbreaking Superbowl loss 😦 Rainy and cold in Seattle, decided to head east to find some sunshine.
We stopped in Prosser, WA and stayed at Wine Country RV Park. Nice place to stay, close to everything, clean and friendly.
Headed southwest from Prosser to the Great Columbia River. On Hwy 97 we saw a lot of wild horses. We camped at Maryhill State Park on the Columbia River. There were only 3 other campers, we were able to get a site right on the river.
Drove west on I-84 to Portland, OR. A beautiful and very scenic drive along the Columbia River. Lots of places to stop and enjoy the scenery.
Kimi and the boys flew in and met us in Portland. One of the highlights for us in Portland was the Oregon Zoo. Awesome zoo!
From Portland we headed west on Hwy 30 to Astoria and the Oregon Coast (I think we will try another route next time). Ryan joined us at the KOA in Astoria/Warrenton, it was an excellent place to stay, especially for the kids.

The boys headed back home and we continued south on Hwy 101. The drive is beautiful!
We ended our trip in February at Sea and Sand RV Park in Depoe Bay!
