Redmond, Portland, Or coast south
Hope this is in the right forum.. or moderator can you move it to the correct location. Tks,
I have 35' RV towing a Saturn Wagon. So I'm what 45+ feet. I will be traveling Solo a retired Gramma (I have NPS senior card, FMCA, Good Sam, AAA & Good Sam Roadside Assist). I don't do hikeing, bikeing. I have about 4-5 long blocks round trip before my knee gives out. I stop for an hr or so and start off again.& I'm not Stair friendly down fine. coming up knee can't do much.
Am planning to go to the FMCA Redmond Event in August, would like to leave San Francisco area on Sat Aug 9th & take 2 days to get to Redmond. From there up to Columbia River, to Portland,
Astoria, & down the coast. Think the Event is over Aug 17th.
I have 3-4 weeks from Aug 17th to make it back to the San Francisco Area Mid end Sept.
I think I'll go I-5 up and cut over to Redmond, On way back down 101 to
Crescent City then over I think it's 299 to Reddubg and I5 to home.
I've done the Redwoods so don't need to do 101 up or back in Calif.
I'd like to stay a couple/few days at each stop & use the toad to look around etc.
Need advise on Roads & best way routes as I'm 45+ and a gas engine. Also Big Rig friendly places for camping and what about reservations. Full hook=ups occasionally not mandatory every nite. Need to chg batts and dump sometimes. I have a gen if needed. Suggestions please .. also Labor Day? Couple days or more on Columbia River? One or Two locations for camping... how many days each location? Maybe stay at 4 locations on coast & use toad to sitesee or do I need more locations for camping? Anyone done this trip..? where did you stay? how long?
Thanks for any and all info. I looked at the Oregon Coast search on IRV2 and got some ideas. I ordered some info from Oregon travel and was thinking about getting a travel oregon book off Amazon.. I also belong to AAA and will get map & oregon book, I have a 2012 Good Sam Travel Directory. I'm not familar with the cities w/o map and how far between each that I should travel before next stop. So looking up RV parks and/or rvparkreviews.com is not so helpfull right now.
We'll be friends until I'm old and senile, then we'll be new friends.
