Day72 - Sunriver, OR

We cut out part of our itinerary due to the tire issues on the trailer. Bridget said that she would feel better if we had new tires. Since everything was closed in Bend, OR, for the weekend, we continued on to Sunriver to stay with some good friends. Driveway surfing or "moochdocking" with full hookups. Water, 30 amp power and a sewer connection! We were originally meeting them at the campground in Crater Lake.



We got an early start this morning to avoid the hot weather. In fact, there were times that it was only 68°F during the drive. In fact, this photo was taken around lunchtime and it was maybe 70°F. A pretty nice day. 

We went for a short hike to a waterfall just north of Sunriver. Here, Bridget and Ginny are walking with the two dogs. The next photo is the waterfall shot with shutter priority to try and blur the water. I believe that is was ¼ of a second.

This post was started on the iPhone and completed on the computer. Hence, the two different ways of handling pictures.

Tomorrow, I'll start calling around to find five new trailer tires.

  1. So these are the tires that came with the trailer? Got any idea how old they are? Full hookups while moochdocking....nice.

    1. The Les Schwab tech said that they were only a few years old. But they had no speed rating. By default, no speed rating means 65 mph max for trailer tires. The new tires are rated for 75mph. Nice to have a little margin. Plus, they installed metal valve stems instead of the rubber ones they had before.

      And, yes, full hookups including sewer!

  3. Hey Richard, when are you heading back home? Highways are in a terrible state in Central BC with all the wildfires, highway 97 has been closed a few times because of the evacuation of Williams Lake.

    1. That's what we've been hearing. We start back in a week or so. Thanks for the heads up.

  4. Sometimes plans change, but I'm glad you got the new tires. And who has an extra sewer hookup in their driveway?

    1. I was surprised to see that there was a sewer connection for an RV in addition to power and water. They said that it was fairly common for houses in the area to have an RV parking spot with utilities.

  5. Wow, moochdocking with hookups is Awesome! Sorry you missed Crater Lake though. Hopefully you've been there before. That is on our bucket list.
