Day 23 - Florence, OR - TT

Not really raining nor is it sunny. Overcast and occasional heavy dew. I went under the trailer again today as the valve I installed on the freshwater overflow hose was dripping. After tightening the hose clamp, I went ahead and filled up the fresh water tank until there was water dribbling out of the fill hose. We’ll see how full it is after traveling to our next campsite down the road. The next reservation is a non-TT location just north of Port Orford.

Our next TT destination is Russian River near Cloverdale, CA, which is about 400 miles south of here. Or about 100 miles per day as I planned for three nights somewhere along the way. Last year, we were traveling just about every day. This year, we are trying a much slower pace. With a preference for longer stays and shorter travel days. The rules for the TT zone camping pass specifies that if we stay at one of their parks for more than four nights, we need to stay out of the network for seven nights. They do have more expensive options that eliminate that restriction but, for now, we’ll just go with this.

This afternoon was spent north of Florence at the beach. As you can see, the dogs went along and one decided that the waves were evil and wanted to attack. The waves retaliated and he was swamped. After retreating to dry land, he thought about attacking again.

On the way back through Florence, we stopped at a seafood store and picked up a bowl of their clam chowder and a cooked and cleaned dungeness crab.

  1. Shorter travel days, slowing down... great idea Richard.

    Clam chowder... I miss this delicacy.

    1. Longer stays is the big one for us. And, it’s not like you have to “see something” everyday. Sitting around is what we would be doing at home anyway...

  2. Yes, less travel, more relaxing...I try to keep it under 300 miles on the days I do drive the URRV. As to the pup challenging the waves...you going to nickname him King Canute? ;)

    1. 300 miles would be a long day with the trailer. But that's kind of what we were doing last year. I think the nickname is more like "stupid" but that's just my opinion...
