It's A Heat Wave! - Friday, July 31, 2020

Friday morning, we left Mountain Home, Idaho, on our way to Pendleton, Oregon. I drove three of our 4-1/2 hours today. There were no incidents, just a lot of mountains and hills to cross. I took it slow and easy. 

Bob spent a good deal of time working on the phone while I drove. We stopped at a rest area to retrieve our tuna out of the refrigerator. Lunch consisted of tuna that Bob prepared in advance. We scooped the tuna out of the dish with Wheat Thin crackers.

At 1:30 p.m., we arrived at Wildhorse Casino, Hotel, and RV Park. The office gave us a choice of sites, one had a gravel pad and one had an asphalt pad. The gravel pad site had good shade. Done deal, we took the site with shade. That worked out well. We're so thrilled we were able to get a site here. I had tried five other RV parks between here and the Columbia River, all were completely full. This campground had one back-in site left.

When we finished settling in our site, Bob headed over to the Sports Book at the casino to watch the Portland Trailblazers play and win their game in overtime. He was literally a happy camper! While he watched the game, he and his son Randall texted back and forth with their commentary on the game.

After the game, we had dinner in our 5th wheel. For dessert, we drove across the street to Dairy Queen for Blizzards.

The sites were quite nice with full hook-ups and it was quiet. They honor a Good Sam discount of 10%. The casino shuttle came to the campground if you needed a ride over. 

It should be noted that, though we didn't use it, there is a free parking lot for trucks and RVs in front of the hotel tower close to the main road. There are no hookups! We wanted to have electricity and water.

The outside temperature here was 101 degrees F. I'm so happy we have two A/C units! Our site was huge. There was more than enough room for our 5th wheel and pick-up.

It's so nice to be in the shade!

The RV park was dark and quiet and we slept well. Tomorrow morning, we want to leave early and arrive in Gig Harbor at 1:00 p.m.
