Sunshine and cold best describes part of this week-ends Scamping trip. A small bit of cabin fever overtook us and we needed to get out. On a cold and frosty Saturday morning we hooked up the Mountain Egg and headed out. A quick stop for breakfast and up the South Sanitam River we went. We were heading for Oregon's Linn County River Bend Campground. The campground map had been consulted and site picked from the map. At about 10 am we arrived to find 2 other camp sites taken, but not your first or second choice. No suprirses there since it was still below freezing.

I think we broke a record for getting the Mountain Egg settled. For one thing the pad was perfectly level so no side to side leveling was necessary. The other, we were motivated by the cold to get the furnace running. We sat inside watching the sun rise and read for a bit. After we were all warm and cozy again off we went on a walk.

There's a loop path the goes around the campground, much along the river after walking about 2/3s of the trail we camp to a swampy spot that was wet and iced over. I'm sure the ice wasn't strong enough to hold us so back the way we came. Part way back we cut through the campground and went to the swamp from that side, than back along the trail to where we started.

It was starting to warm up and breakfast had been burned up, so it must be lunch time. After a bit of lunch out came the chairs and we sat around and did a bit of carving.

I stepped into the trailer for something and there was a wren trying to get a window. I think I must has scared the poop out of him cause it all over that window. I managed to open the back window and herd him toward the open window. Off he went and both of us were happier.

Soon other campers arrived and the tours began. Another short walk and the sun started setting, time to put the outside stuff away, the temperature was dropping fast. Ahh the warmth of the furnace, a good book, my best friend, the sound of the river, and a nice view out the window, it don't get any better than that. (well warmer weather it might)

Sunday morning was a frosty thing. We waited till close to noon to defrost the tow and hook up. We wandered some of the back roads heading for home. All in all a nice pleasant week-end thanks to a little fiberglass trailer.


Sunday Morning.

Byron & Anne enjoying the everyday Saturday thing.
