Pennsylvania – Home Sweet Home

On the road again.  David and I drove the RV from Redondo Beach Marina to Portland, OR in 2 days.  I dropped both off in Hillsboro, OR and off to see my Mom in PA.

The drive across the country took me 3.5 days in my Corolla and the new engine worked beautifully.  I am actually getting better gas mileage!  Thanks Sabino.

I chose to leave the RV in Oregon because gas would cost me around $2,000 in the RV and $200 in the car.   I have plenty of places to sleep in PA and my favorite is our place on the Allegheny River about 100 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Bass, Walleye, Carp, Hummingbirds, Bear, Deer, Fox, Porcupine, Grouse, Bald Eagles, Hawks AND Edgar all enjoying the river.  Edgar loves to swim and comes to the river with me.  He has appointed himself official guardian and made it his duty to bark at everyone who approaches the cabin.

I grew up on this river learning to swim and fish.  Now my Oregonian friends understand the deep love of nature and why Oregon is my second home.  The mountains here are a bit shorter, but just as beautiful.

  4. Hi Cathy. Catching up on your journal entries. You are putting on the miles! My husband and I just returned from a 6559 mile motorcycle ride in 15 days. Went to Knoxville, TN and joined 3000 other GoldWings at a rally for 4 days, then drove down to Atlanta, Ga to visit our son for a couple of days. Had very hot weather and a few thunder storms. But enjoyed every minute of it! My husband does the driving, I just sit back and relax and enjoy the scenery! Enjoy your visit to your home state . . . Laura


    • I figure around 4,500 in the car, and 1,500 or so in the rv. I like driving, find it relaxing in the car, the rv takes concentration to drive, no cruise and the wind blows you around like crazy. Towing the car I’m over 35 feet long-challenging, but still fun.
