Howard Prairie RV Resort

Finally had a chance to head out for the weekend to Howard Prairie Lake.  Not sure how many sites there are at this campground but I'm thinking over 200 in two sections.  We were in w6 right on the lake.  The sites are big so neighbors are not right next to you.  We had great weather for most of our time there.  It started to thunder late afternoon Saturday thru the night and next morning it rained.  We have a large awning on the RV so we weren't in the weather.  I saw mostly chipmunks and geese, but was surprised to hear a bald eagle.  They have a very different sound and I new one was close.  Then as I was looking across the lake with the binoculars, Jerry said there it is.  Sure enough there was a Bald eagle fishing.  It swoop down, got a fish and flew off.  Then another one followed.  Cool!!!  We are big eagle people and get happy happy happy when we see one.  We headed back home around noon.  Another great time out in the RV.

until next time,

A weekend out

We had a another chance to get the motor home out for the weekend.  So we had Christina come in and take care of the store and to keep an eye on Betsy (Shepard) and the house.  I would like to take her with us but she is shedding badly and she really doesn't like other dogs.  She is our guard dog and she keeps and eye on the house and the store.  She doesn't like to see the motor home leave because she knows that we will be gone for a while. 
We went to Riverpark RV just outside of Grants Pass.  We were at this park last year in the spring, so it was very quiet.  This time it was full and we got the last space that would fit us, it was still pretty quiet.  We were right on the river but on one side we were right next to the other RV.  Our awning was just about touching the Motor home next to us.  We didn't extend it all the way out as not to get to close.  They left early the next day so we had plenty of room until the next one came in.  They were smaller and we were fine and not as close. 
The geese were everywhere on the river edge but we were up hill and they could climb up there.  At least I didn't see any poo poo any where in the park. 
Everytime we go out in the Motor home it makes me more excited to be full timers.  We have been dreaming of this for many years and hoping that this will be the year we sell the store and retire.
Until next time,

A weekend to get the Rig out.

We will get a chance to go out for the weekend to get those fluids in the RV moving around.  Our part timer is going to work the weekend for us and keep an eye on the house.  We won't be going far, but at least we are getting out.  Should be a nice site that I reserved.  We will be right on the Rogue River. 
More later,

We listed the store with a realtor

Well, after two years of trying to sell the store on our own, we decided to get a realtor and list it with Keller Williams reality.  He seams to thing he will "get'er done" for us.  There have been many more hits on his site than I ever got on mine own of listing it on the Web.  Hope hope hope we can sell this year.  2013 has to be a lucky year for us. 
We will be going out again for a weekend trip soon.  We try to get the motor home out once in a while to keep all the fluids and everything else in the rig going.  We use everything at least once.  I can't wait to live in it full time.  I keep thinking of things i want to do to make it look like a home.  Like changing out the booth dinette to a table and chairs.  Taking out the couch and putting in a couple of comfy chairs.  I think that I will redo the valances also.  Time will tell...
Bye for now,

Joe Creek RV Resort

Jerry and I had a chance to get out for the weekend with the Motor Home.  We went to Joe Creek Rv Resort just north of Merlin.  Nice quiet park that has permanent full timers that you wouldn't even notice.  Cute little store that has just about everything you may need.  We were in a site that had no one around us with grass and trees.  This park is our favorite so far.  We don't get a chance to get out much but will try to make it out at least once a month.
We are having a realtor come out this week so hopefully we will be able to sell the store faster.  We are ready to retire and be in our beautiful motor home full time.

Brooking and Gold Beach

We had a chance to head to the coast yesterday so we went. Yay!  Had to stop at the beach and then our little cafe in Gold Beach.  Indian Creek Cafe is a neat little place we just love.  They even have a nice RV park.  The weather was beautiful and it was a nice drive. Didn't see the herd of Elk this time, they must of been up in the trees.  Its always a good day when we can get away from the Store.
Bye for now,

Waiting to Retire

Haven't had much to say lately just working and waiting for some lucky person to buy the store.  The weather has been a little cold and rainy.  We got a little damage on the Motor home last winter because snow was so heavy.  It pulled the front cap away and pop some plastic refits off.  We have been waiting for the weather to be warm so our rv repair guy can fix it.  Since it has to be warm for the fiberglass we have to wait for warm weather.  We are planning a weekend out next month so hope to have some good weather.  Jerry and I are ready to get on the road.   
Later, Lu
