Lunch Stop creek

Timber Valley Escapees RV Park

Timber Valley RV Park

Friday, May 18, 2007, we again headed north along the beautiful Oregon coast, on highway 101. This highway has some wonderful views of the ocean from several hundred feet above the water. As the highway moved more inland, we spotted several Cranberry Boggs. At Bandon we took highway 42 east. It was a narrow, winding road on the first section, then the remaining section got a little wider but still winding around the rolling hills. We stopped along the road for lunch and had a very pretty creek down below the road. We then caught I-5 and headed north to the small town of Sutherlin, where the Escapees RV Park is located. This is another of those co-op parks to which we belong. It is only $15 a night including cable TV. One of the residence operates a Wifi for $3 a day, so I paid for one day which is enough for me. This park is called Timber Valley, and it is terraced among the rolling hills with lots of trees and nice wide parking spots. Nice Place. We have seen deer and wild turkey walking through the park also. We just took it easy for the next three days. I worked on the website, did some laundry and then Monday we went to the post office to get our mail that Michelle forwarded to us. Tuesday we moved from Sutherlin, Oregon to Eugene, Oregon. I had an appointment at the Caterpillar Service facility to have the valves adjusted on the RV engine. This is one of those items that needs to be done between the 2nd and 3rd oil change to fulfill the requirements of the 5-year warranty on the engine. It should not have to be done again. We arrived at the Eugene service facility at 10:00am. Since they needed our house, we took Sadie and the Jeep and killed some time around Eugene. We got some shopping down and got Carol's prescriptions re-filled at Wal-Mart. We had lunch and returned about 3:00pm and they had just finished with our house. We stayed the night at a close-by RV Park, the Shamrock RV Park. It was basically a mobile home park with one section set-aside for RV's. It had a large asphalt parking lot with each parking spot painted on the asphalt and utilities along side each parking spot. Not a real beauty but had cable TV and Wifi and we were only staying the one night. Wednesday we are heading for the Columbia River Gorge at the northern border of Oregon.
