Day 149, 150 - Pacific City, OR - TT

Friday (149) - Early in the morning, the cell booster worked great and we were able to stream until about noon. So my thought that the tower was overloaded might be accurate. It is cool and overcast today which is no big surprise for the Oregon coast. Here is our site located at the top of a hill with an almost view of the ocean.

We went into Pacific City, which is a couple of miles south, to get a few groceries and the town was crowded with holiday tourists. At the grocery store, masks were required and I didn’t see a single person without one inside of the store. The grocery store offered free WiFi so while we were shopping I downloaded a video. Even when we were in town, the phone indicated two bars of LTE and data was still barely functional. We’ll wait until after the holiday weekend to check out the town. Tomorrow, we are headed into Corvallis to visit family.

Saturday (150) - On the way to Corvallis, I noticed that the GPS route went right through Monmouth, OR. I texted wonderful moto-blogger friends, Troubadour and Trobairitz, and we stopped and (safely) visited for a bit. We hadn’t seen them since last September when this road trip first started. After a short visit, we continued on to my mom’s home for an outdoor picnic. A combination of in-person and Google Meet conferencing. We also are running a couple of loads of laundry. Since we don’t have a sewer connection, we prefer not to use our combo washer/dryer.

    1. It was wonderful to visit with you two. When I looked at the route, it seemed a shame not to visit even for a bit.

  3. Nice indeed that you got to safely visit with Brandy and Brad! As to the slowdowns, am sure you're right, system was saturated.

    1. It’s actually working right now. Three bars of LTE and we just watched some YouTube...
