We are scheduled to have work done on the motorhome near Eugene, Oregon starting Monday the 23rd. We are going to drive down on this Saturday. On Sunday we'll get moved into our motel room for a couple of days. Some of the work requires us to vacate our little home. After the work is done we'll head back up to the Portland area.
I really struggled to find a place for us to stay in the area. It's spring and summer is coming. Everyone is booked for long term stays. Yesterday I must have made 25 calls to different RV parks but had no luck. Today I decided to look just over the border in Washington and struck gold!

I'm pretty excited about this place. It's beautiful and our site overlooks the Columbia River. We have a reservation for three weeks and we'll figure out what to do after that. The downside, it's 40 miles to my daughter's house in Portland.
Another thing crossed off the list today is training for Murphy. He's really very well behaved for his age but there are a few things we need to get a handle on. I found a trainer in Portland who can work us into her schedule. We are going to do a two week board and train. The trainer actually takes the dog into their home and works with them for two solid weeks. They have a lifetime guaranty at any of their training centers in the US. It's not cheap but after his training I am told I'll be able to let him go off leash and have perfect recall. I'll let you know how it goes. Shhhh, we're going to tell him he's going to summer camp.
