The Small Trip

The idea is to leave Federal Way on August 4th and drive down to Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in Troutdale, Oregon via Voodoo Donuts in Portland Oregon. The donut being the reason for the whole trip. We will spend the first night of our trip along the banks of the Sandy River.
We will move to La Grande, Oregon the following day where we will spend the majority of our vacation. On Saturday we will visit Pendleton and La Grande. Sunday with picnic basket in hand we will take the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway and return to La Grande. On Monday we visit the manufacturer of our new travel trailer, Northwood Manufacturing. Tuesday we head to Yakima, Washington to spend a night free from hookups on BLM property. Our son wants us to make some wine purchases for him. Wednesday we will return the trailer to the lot in Gold Bar and return home.
I plan to blog, take pictures and generally enjoy a get away with my lovely wife. So watch the blog starting the 4th....We'll be experimenting with what we hope will happen when we retire and really hit the road...
