From Prairie City to John Day, OR.

Just some shots from the cockpit of the Mothership as we made our way from Prairie City to John Day. The Fossil Center was really busy the morning we were there, but we did get a chance to see all of the exhibits, just not go out on the trail or whatever to see the actual beds. Just keeping track of two grandchildren, when I’m in a boot and need a cane to navigate, was a challenge enough indoors!

As an aside: the motorhome you see in the photo we seemed to have followed for a couple of hours. Not much traffic on this road, which is nice. Just a bit boring looking at the back of the same motorhome for miles!


Safe travels

from the Mothership

docked in Seattle!



Some relics from the past. Old names/companies like, Underwood, Smith-Corona, IBM ( maybe the only company of this group to transition into the PC age).

Location: Rock Springs Museum, Rock Springs, WYO.

Getting close to Un-Winterizing the Mothership. There is a mobile RV service north of Seattle that has been helping me with maintenance, repairs, etc. They are coming down April 15th to flush out the system and make sure things didn’t freeze over this past Winter. In May I will wash it, from top to bottom. After the cleaning I have a major project to re-seal all of the roof seams. Takes a special kind of caulk that cost $20 a tube– and I will need at least 10 tubes! It rains so much in the NW……….

By June we should be ready to launch 🙂
