Day 8 - Corvallis, OR

Yesterday afternoon, I picked up ChrisL, of EverydayRiding.org, from the Portland airport. Quite coincidentally he arrived one the same day I was planning to be passing through the area. We had a wonderful lunch at The Bye and Bye in Portland. I had the BBQ Brussel Bowl w/avocado and it was absolutely amazing. There was a lot of traffic on I-5 down to Corvallis but the company more than made up for it. I dropped him off with Troubadour and Trobairitz before heading over to me mom's home. My sister and brother in-law came up from Eugene to visit.

Today, I went through and inventoried all of the RV stuff that I had sent here from Amazon. All of these vendors said "we don't ship to Alaska, only within the continental U.S.". I don't remember crossing any oceans to get here. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention. Fortunately, we had here as a shipping option. I will be doing another post on all of the not insignificant amount of stuff needed after you pick up an RV.

This is the last picture I took of Scooterbob which was at the Princeton, BC, airport. This was last Thursday on the way through central Washington to the Oregon border. 


Scooterbob has been dropped off for more adventures with Troubadour and Trobairitz. It was suggested that we can call this moto-blogger meetup "iMBC 2017". The "international" flavor being supplied by Troubadour and Scooterbob.

  2. "iMBC 2017" - Yes, let's call it exactly that. Hello, Y'all. And I am very happy that, thanks to Bobskoot, I had the pleasure of meeting each and every one of you on several occasions.

  3. I second that Sonja! We were talking about how BobScoot loved getting folks together.

    Thank you for picking up Chris for us and for coming to dinner last night. It is always good to see you when you are in town. We'll have to get together again before you and Bridget head out on your grand tour.

  6. Sounds like fun meeting up with everyone! I am excited to see all the stuff you are installing. Maybe I missed a post, or a bunch of posts, but is this RV new to you and you are just getting it geared up to travel?
