amazing (non dance) road trips of late…and some cool campers!

DSCF2770I live in a beautiful land, I do. The Pac NW is a place of stunningly gorgeous, powerful, and monumental land and water formations, and I have been covering much of it in the past 3 weeks in my trusty little T@B camper, with my man Jeff and the corgis, or by myself.

First it was down the gorge to Peach Beach to camp with my T@B pals on our 4th annual rally and do some wine tasting. One day we drove up through the rolling wheat fields of eastern Washington to Prosser to visit a few  wineries, with rolling fields of beauty all the way, as well as strangely beautiful bits of junked up land.

One the way home we climbed the back hills of the gorge to taste delicious wines from Memaloose and Domaine Pouillon wineries, way up high overlooking the Columbia River. Wow…

The next weekend we ventured  south to Klamath Falls, OR to pick up our new/old trailer, the ’63 Shasta that had been rebuilt. That day took us through sun, rain, hail, snow, wind, and more sun, as we drove up and over the central oregon mountain passes to get to the high desert of Klamath Falls in southern Oregon. Lots of different landscapes too, besides the weather changes. Outstanding…

DSCF2901We picked up our new trailer! Oh yea, been looking for a Shasta for years, and  here is the ole ’63, just waiting for us. Hitched it up and brought in back home.

I so enjoy cmaping/glamping with Jeff, we always have a blast, and travel well together. But now it comes to my time, and my new camping friends–the girls! I drove my maiden solo voyage this last weekend with the TAB, meaning by myself, to join in my first glamp-out with Sisters on the Fly in Spokane, WA. This took me again through the Columbia Gorge, one of my all time favorite places on this planet. The windy gorge makes you realize just how small you are and how big and powerful the earth is.

Up again through Prosser to hang with my gal friends, and then the caravan of trailers up to Spokane, to camp out at Riverside Park and to vintage shopping at the FarmChicks HUGE sale of about a million vendors. But really, it was to wear pettycoats and be silly out in the woods!
