I am not a seat-of-your-pants traveler. Get off at a light rail stop just to see what’s there? Great idea. Drive a 27-foot motor home plus tow car to the mountains (when you can’t back up and have to be on level ground to unhitch) without a reservation on the weekend before a holiday? Not a great idea. But that’s what we did and the result was wonderful.
We’re at Lazy Bend Campground in Mt. Hood National Forest about 50 miles southest of Portland, not far from the little town of Estacada, OR, and right on the Clackamas River. I called the local ranger and was told there was a “60/40” chance we’d get a spot. Instead we found lots of spots and have a great one in what looks like an enchanted forest.
Jim wanted to go in this general direction to check out the Olallie Lake Scenic Area; Season and Lee want us to go there with them in August and we want to make sure the road (described in a brochure as “rough and without auto repair shops") is OK for the RV.
