Leaving Coos Bay and Heading to Dufur

Our plan after leaving Coos Bay was to head to Dufur, Oregon where Mike’s parents live. They were gracious to let us store our keepsakes at their house. We had condensed our keepsakes to only six plastic tubs. During our time living in the RV in Coos Bay we rented a storage unit for the keepsakes. We also needed to store my bike, our kayaks and miscellaneous items yet to be expunged. So after loading the kayaks on top of the car, throwing our keepsake tubs in the car, we were pretty loaded down and needed to make Dufur one of our first stops.

Mike’s parents are snowbirds and only live in their home for about 3 months during the summer. We have learned a lot about living in an RV from them over the years. We always admired their adventurous spirt. They both turned 80 this year so it’s great to see that they are still healthy and happy traveling in their 5th wheel.

We had a great time visiting with them and hope to catch up with them on the road in the Southwest during the coming winter.

Our daughter Kim and her family came up for a visit from Portland while we were in Dufur. We did a family hike together up into the Mt. Hood National Forest because Mike’s dad wanted to check on a geocache he placed several years ago. The container needed replacing.
