Jim and I are spending the month of July in Oregon. We have a LOT of things on our list to be worked on, so spending most of that time down in the Coburg, Junction City, Harrisburg area.

 

We have been living in this RV since we bought it in 2001, February to be exact. That’s a lot of wear and tear in a very small space. Time for some updates, maintenance and new features.

 

Alas, I will be working during the month, my own doing. I figured since I was “stuck” in the area, might as well make use of the time! Hey, I might find something I can’t live without and it will pay for it. The current plan is for me to turn in my badge and work PC on August 12th, and I have every day until we get to Livingston, TX in November planned out :) (more about that in another post).

 

So, here’s to being in Oregon, getting much needed work done on the RV and getting ready to truly hit the road!

I keep trying to take decent pictures of the moon, thought I would have a better chance if the moon was at it’s fullest for the year. Jim and I drove up the hill behind us, towards Issaquah Highlands. It didn’t seem like it would make a good enough picture, we just weren’t sure where the moon would rise. So we continued East to find higher ground. We got really close to Fall City and found a side road that had a good view of the hills that the moon would rise over. Somehow, I knew it would rise (based on the angle of the shadows of the sun setting) between the hills. Didn’t have the best location but it worked 😉 So here are a few shots that I took:

Thanks Jim for driving me around until we found a spot that would work.
