9/9/15 (Wednesday) in LaPine, OR (Cascade Meadows RV Resort-ROD)
Easiest moving day ever! Up at 7, dumping the black/gray tanks at 9 and getting our propane by 9:15. Soon on the road, then arriving at 9:40, because we were just 7 miles down US 97. This was so nice to have such a close move when we needed to do those extra projects on our way out: dump and get propane. When we head for Redding, CA it will be a 5-6 hour trip, not on freeways, so rest stops will be trickier. It will be great to just take off early from our site here at Cascade Meadows. This campground has some FHU sites (pull through) and because the season is now slow (after Labor Day), we got one. Beautiful bathrooms and a view of the nearby Cascades. Hardly any trees to speak of (so different from the TT park up the road), so we don’t have shade from the sun but John has his satellite TV and we have 50 amps power, so the A/C should get us through. We’re here to avoid the 100 degree days that Redding will be experiencing for the next week or more.
Once we were set up we read for awhile, then had lunch. John went outside for quiet (I had the sheets washing before lunch, drying after), calling a friend and some relatives. I practiced some aspects of watercolor: pulling a wash and color. Later we took a walk around the campground, returning to our rig for more relaxing.
