We like to ride the bbq Skunk train from Fort Bragg.
Anybody did it? Is it fun?
Yes: Fun. To Willits & back.
But I am worrying (from your log) about too many cholesterol-laden meals from McD's.

We're re-living the Mendocino-coast experience from your great photos. Once stayed at a nice B&B right in Mendocino (B.C.--Before Casita).

As you head north, check out the RV accommodations at Benbow Resort on Hwy. 101 at the Eel River---recall it as a beautiful spot. I can only imagine that it might be pricey, however, simply because of where it is.

We are very impressed by the Redwoods :-)
Our actual site is on campground http://www.redwoodsrv.com/ between the Redwood Trees :-)

What do you folks think of Crater Lake NP?
Is it a 'must do'?

Hi again, Lex & Rita - we continue to enjoy your posts and photos. Thanx so much! Ohhhh yes, aren't the redwoods wonderful?

Don't know how much time you have left for your tour schedule, but we think Crater Lake is a gorgeous 'must see'. There is a lovely US Forest Service campground at the base of the mountain at Diamond Lake. Hope you can fit it in. Safe journeys - L 'n D

I would go up by car too. It is 7,000 foot elevation. While you are at Crater Lake, do not miss the lodge. It is very vice. Also, if you have time and energy, take to boat tour. It is a mile or so hike with a 750' drop down to the lake but worth the effort. (I am assuming that they still do it. It has been a while since we were down there.)

There is a drive that circumnents the lake. It is about 35 miles. We have biked it twice (different years).

Enjoy

Dave

Strictly an answer to your question on your web log. No one else will have interest.
The upcharge is about standard for upgrading to 100% synthetic. Presumably you are already using synthetic, otherwise probably should not have been used. Basic charge is about standard on today's expensive oil market, perhaps a trifle high, but considering the isolated market where you are. Personally, next time you need a change, I'd wait for a large city with your dealership or where one of our members can really recommend a local service. As you've learned, we have folks in almost every nook and cranny of the U.S. and Canada. (I know I'll be cricitized for this comment, but I'd go 50000 miles before I'd have one of my cars dragged into a JiffyLube!)

Thanks, George, for the reply.

We had some wonderful days with all those wonderful fiberglassrv people at the Oregon Gathering.
We learned about potlucks, dutchovens, golfballgames and more. We take it all home.
Thanks everybody :-)

We are travelling north along the foggy Oregon Coast. Is it ever sunny there? ;-)
At the moment we stay at Pacific RV-Park in Tillamook along the 101.
Main reason to select this camp: wifi !
A lot of work to do ;-)

Photo: Newport, nice fishing port. We spend the foggy morning there.

Enjoy the fog and cool weather while you can Lex and Rita. It's foggy and cool at the coast because it's flaming hot inland. It will be close to 100 degrees when you find your way moving east.

Now I have to go check out what you've posted on your blog
