We often travel south on highway 395. This time we headed north on 395 into neighboring Oregon. We had a reason to hit the road and, once again, look for adventure.

 

All four parts are completed and posted to our blog -

 

Oregon Trails - June & July 2022 - Part One.

 

Oregon Trails - June & July 2022 - Part Two

 

Oregon Trails - June & July 2022 - Part Three

 

Oregon Trails - June & July 2022 - Part Four

 

 

We hope you all enjoy coming along on another trip. :)

Thanks Monte.I like the Lady's take on the situation of our country.

"We'll all be dead by the time it all really goes to ****"

 

Your idea to keep the stress at bay is a great one.

Nice that Steve and wife got to visit.

 

Did you stay at the Idlewild campground.We stayed there once on our return trip from Yellowstone in June 2010.

 

That Strawberry area sure is beautiful.

 

Nice looking fish.

 

As always enjoying your stories.

Tonight, I thought we were going to have to call 911 for The Bride and yers truly.  We were trying mightily to hold back laughter regarding the story about Fritz, and dang near ruptured our faces.  I’m certain it would have required emergency transport.  
 

It’s much funnier to read about it than to experience the joy.  Stepping in the fresh and smelly “dog bomb” contributed to my dismay.  
 

Thanks for the chuckle.

Welcome to Oregon. Love the note about the doctor's prescription. Certainly resonates with us.

Thanks for the details and photos. Sorry about the Bubba bunch.

Thanks for part 2. That's very beautiful country you found.

 

The Fritz story is a hoot.

Hi Monte !   thx for your kind words about meeting Helen and I.   I later told helen we had met pop up camper royalty !! :)

 

Nice to see your pics of the upper river.  its amazing how much water is coming out of that basin.

and was surprised to see you trying your hand fishing  and wading.  that water was COLD !!

 

its nice to read a post that i actually know the lay of the land.  your nevada/cal posts are great, but i have not camped down there.  yet !
