Dancers--Eagle Point, Or
This larger-than-life bronze statue is located across from the Lake Creek General Store is Eagle Point Oregon. It is mounted on a rotating base. See the detail pix and note the rose in her right hand.

I can almost hear him howl!
Doggie’s too cute to be real! I envy you.
I’ll dream of you pal. More and more I become envious. You have creative a platform from which experience will blossom into book, into experience, into books. How the hell can you miss?
Smiling and chuckling.
Now you have a reason to save those plastic grocery bags, may you have fair winds and dry decks
Jolly Swag looks jolly good! Congratulations on the name. I love it! it fits. It looks like a good fit for you, too. Joyful journies, happy times and experiences, and good writing…A travel odessesy may be your next writing project. I can envision a book (like Dave) coming from your journals.
Nice rig, Al. Like those giant windshield wipers! You’ll need them here in the Pacific NWet.
many woofs ,
I’m looking into retirement. You seem to have some creative ideas on how to do it. Keep me informed of your adventures!
What’s the pup’s name? (You can’t name your vehicle and not name the dog.) Looking forward to more pics and tales from the road.
Okay–just how do some people get their photo with their comment on your blog?
Nice looking motorhome. How many miles per gallon? If you run out of gas, will “Lightening” help push or pull?
I expect to average 11 mpg. Not so bad when I consider I am driving a one bedroom condo around. Great as compared to a 50′ motor yacht which gets three-quarters of a mile per gallon.
Is that you in the window???
One must enjoy driving more than I to travel thusly. At 11 mpg, your cost for petrol is about 25¢ / mile. Pro-rating the cost per mile of vehicle registration, maintenance and depreciation escalates the figure considerably. But perhaps this Scotchman is being too mercenary and unromantic. Possibly you can write a popular book or two of non-fiction to recoup the costs. God bless!
This trip is not about miles, it is about moments. Once I get to a place I like, I expect to park for days on end. Thanks for stopping by, Dan.
It’s a shame that Owney, U S Rail Mail Postal Dog isn’t still with us.
He would make a great companion for your trip… and he liked his
whiskers out the window/door to the rail car. I wonder if you
and your dog can match Owney’s 240,000 miles in the 1890’s???
Al, Best of luck on your voyage but save the NW until your next available June-Sept. It is Sept 16 and pissing rain already. FYI we are leaving on Oct 7 to head South as usual; maybe we will see you in Colima? Happy trails, Dennis
Nice thing about your dog is that he’s the species you don’t have to “take him for a walk” or clean up after him and he won’t bark at or bite the neighbors at the trailer camp. I sometimes have similiar dreams of following your trail, but I’m brought up short by the thought that I can’t take the cat along . . . .
In 1983 I took a 28-week motorhome voyage accompanied by my wife, my dog, and my cat. The pets loved it. They introduced us to may other travels. Moreover, people who missed the pets they left at home, would visit our campsite, to get a pet-fix.
How much is that doggie in the window?????
I’ll enjoy following you by email on your trip. It will make a good book.
You’re right! Its about memories not miles.
Thanks, April. Save a space on your bookshelf for A Year on the Road.
In 1967, my dog and I traveled across the southern U.S. in a VW camper. Great memories. Enjoy stacking up the delights of our nation.
Alas! My .net program is working- so can read your blog and catch up. Sounds like you’re experiencing some great stuff. Enjoy Janiepoo while you’re there!
I am enjoying reading about your trip so much. I can’t wait to read the book when your trip is finished. I loved your dads knifes, as I remember them from his great store. No one had meat like your dad.
Very nice motor home.
