Day 24 - Baker City, OR

Today was 360 miles from Snowville, UT, to Baker City, OR. Followers of this blog may recognize this campground as the one that Bob and Karen stayed at back in 2012. Wow! Was it really that long ago... I called this morning from a rest area and they had one site left that I would be able to fit into so I went ahead and reserved it. Some (Bridget) may ask why not dry camp. It's hard to do when there isn't another person to be looking to see what is ahead. There was one Harvest Host but they wouldn't be open until Wednesday. No Walmarts, Cracker Barrel or Cabella's that allow overnight parking and the rest areas allow 2-hour parking only. So, RV park it is.

It isn't hot at all which is what I was expecting. In fact, 63°F with a slight breeze almost feels chilly. Maybe anything after the southeast feels chilly. It rained again while on the road but not the gully washer that was in Wyoming. Only a bit more to go. I may stay at a Harvest Host location tomorrow. The only one near here is closed on Monday and Tuesday.

Lots of Oregon Trail signs along I-84. This one was next to the jacuzzi at the campground. They had hot tubs on the Oregon Trail?

I know the REAL reason for a campground instead of boondocking is the jacuzzi!

Nope! I found out about the jacuzzi after I got all set up.

Do they chalk your tires after two hours in the rest area?

RichardM said...

I have no idea but two hours seems awfully short.

Come to Colorado, I know some spots!

I’m not too sure that we can make it into some of your spots...
