Day 12

Got enough done to get on the road. A huge thank you to Steve and Karen for not only opening up their home and shop but also providing lots of tips from their experiences as fifth wheel owners. Their suggestion to go through Portland between 10am and 11:30am was very helpful to this novice driver. 

 

After getting past Portland, I stopped at a rest area to check tire and bearing temperatures as well as checking to see if anything was loose. 

 

I'm now looking camped in Corvallis for about a week. It'll give me a chance to clean things up on the inside as well as start finding places to put things. The basement storage is a disorganized mess.

  1. Yes, get it all cleaned up before I get there and mess it all up again!

    1. I think I'll be doing regular posts as long as there is Internet available.

  3. So how's the truck doing in terms of pulling the RV? Do you even feel it back there?

    1. Oh yeah. You feel it back there. The unladen weight is 8,420 lbs and gross weight is 12,780. Once we get it loaded up, full tank of fresh water and a full tank of fuel, I'll take it to a scale to weigh each axle.
