Mt Shasta, CA

Managed to make it to Mt. Shasta, CA to Abraham's RV Park on Tuesday night.  We've been here before.  The spaces are still not level and the water pressure has declined to Not-Great AND they have decided that they want $28 (cash or personal check only) for a night.  They do have cable and wifi but really!  It's not that wonderful.  I would stay here again but only if it fit into our plans REALLY well.  There is one redeeming thing:  close to the mountain.

For a place a mile off the interstate, that's not a bad view when you take the dog for a walk. 

Headed north today and ended up in the Portland-Woodburn RV Park about 15:30.  Another place we've stayed several times before.  It has it's own private gate to a discount mall which may be a selling point.  For us, it's not.  They have managed to raise the rate to $35 this year so, again, we may not be stopping here again. 

The folks in Oregon seem to have taken Interstate highway building lessons from Louisiana;  if I didn't know better I'd think we'd lost wheel weights on all four tires!  It's still beautiful though.  We were watching Mt Hood get bigger all afternoon.   We are just lazying around; it's 94F tying a local record for the day.  Hotter tomorrow.  Out on the coast there is a split between warm and cool.  On the northern Oregon coast it's in the 90's (33C) but the southern Oregon coast it's 58F (14C).  What a difference in just a few miles!

More later.  Hope things are well with you & yours!

Portland is supposed to be 98f tomorrow - seems like you're still at home.
