Wednesday, October 4, 2017 - Silver Falls State Park, Sublimity, OR, Day 4, 0 Miles, 1,302.9 Towing Miles For the Trip

A quiet day after a cool night - down to 37°F by morning, and it only reached 60°F by 3:00 this afternoon. When I was in Salem yesterday it was in the 70's, so the 1000' altitude gain seems to cool things off. In any case, lots of sun, so if felt warmer when sitting in it (which I did a lot of), reading David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks, an interesting, and huge, science fiction novel..

The fiberglass trailers are arriving. There are about 7 or 8 already in the campground, with the Escapes outnumbering the rest of them. Donna D, the organizer of the rally, arrived with her Escape 5.0TA.

Around 2:30 I braved the cold showers. I still wish I had my own showerhead, and maybe a portable propane heater! It was at least 10F cooler in the showers than outside.

Dinner was an invite to Dave & Kathie's (Escape 21 owners) for a pork chop dinner with mixed root vegetables & applesauce. We also killed a bottle of St Lawrence Red wine.

Until next time -
