Greetings from the luxurious inside of our trailer at Fort Stevens, Oregon. The rain has been falling all night, and still is doing so this morning. I’m about to fire up some breakfast, but figured I’d drop down a quick update before we get moving since I didn’t yesterday.
This is our first split camping trip – half the family at home, and half of us in the trailer. A couple kids had another camp scheduld we didn’t know about when we booked our spot, so we decided to keep both reservations and split up the Lopi clan. Big ol’ traffic jam on I-5, 217, and then Hwy 26 for about 45 minutes, so the 120 mile trip took us almost 3 hours, but other than that, it’s all good.
In food news, I brought along some gardenburger on the trip — actually two kinds, one with black beans and another that apparently is mostly just grass and dirt, cause that’s what it tastes like. But the black bean version tastes pretty good, and I could go for those more often. They are a winco brand of some sort…I can check when I get home, but only 80 or 100 calories, I think, as opposed to the 350 calories that the winco brand hamburger patties were.
Anyway, that’s it for today…short post because I need to get the griddle going for some eggs and bacon for the morning. On another note, I’m back down again, and heading towards that next mile marker of 60 lbs! Whoohoo!
