A Spa Day and a New Camp for the Little RV

The last week has flown by.  We were in Portland visiting my daughter and her family and had asked Ryan our son-in-law if he would come and wash the top of the Little RV and he agreed.  After being parked under many trees all winter and spring it was a nasty mess and needed cleaned badly.  The first morning we were there  a small army of men came in and started cleaning some of the surrounding RVs.  Rob decided to see what they would charge to do ours and the price was agreeable so we decided to splurge on a badly needed spa day for our rolling home.  

They thoroughly cleaned the roof, the entire exterior including the awning, the windows, tires and wheels.  It looks so much better.  When Ryan came to clean the roof we told him it was being done and fed him a steak dinner instead.  

The rest of our Portland visit went by so fast.  I was able to spend another afternoon with Christina, Camden and Clementine the next day.  We went to a swanky market where she likes to shop. It was right up my alley too.  Camden and I put his new RV Lego set together.  It was great fun.  It was hard to leave when the day was over. 

Yesterday we drove much longer than we intended and were getting a bit desperate for a place to stop when I found this campground using my Allstays app. These little  known campgrounds are a leap of faith because you never know if you'll end up in Deliverance movie situation or you'll find a hidden gem.  We did not hear dueling banjos as we pulled in and we were pleasantly surprised to find a really nice campground.  

We are camped in SE Washington surrounded by farm land, along the Tucannon River just outside Starbuck, Washington. How can you not love that? The sites are really long with huge grassy lawns and shade trees.  We can get a great satellite signal here but we cannot get any cell phone service. Fortunately the park has free wifi so we can keep in touch.  It is really windy here this morning and not a good day for travel so we plan to stay put for another night. Maybe our next stop will be Montana?  A girl can dream, right?


  1. A clean RV and a nice park. . . Doesn't get much better than that.

  2. Pretty green grass, and looks very well kept up. Nice spot!

  3. We just got back to Michigan after a trip to Florida and did our RV need a good cleaning. We drove down during love bug season, and these things are in the millions in Florida. They stick to everything, including the grill, headlights, just about any crack or crevice in the RV. Took 3 days to scrub her clean of those critters.
