I'm a Slacker

Wow, I’m such a slacker. We got the guys off and back into Portland safely, and then we packed up and moved on the 26th of July. We were intending to stay in Missoula for a week and just unwind and break up the drive. Upon arrival in Missoula we decided we didn’t care to stay there, not for any particular reason other than it just didn’t feel right, so we pushed on to Spokane. We blew right past our exit in Spokane because of a car fire and decided that we didn’t want to bother turning around, so onto Portland. For anyone who’s curious, from where we were at in Montana to Portland is a long drive. Not like we aren’t used to those, but still.

We got into Portland at about 11pm on the night of the 26th and stayed for one week. This week was spent primarily running errands and trying to play catch up. We had some stuff o get out of the guys dorm room that we had shipped to them, had stuff to put in the storage unit, etc,etc. At the end of that week we moved to the Oregon Coast.

We didn’t think that we were going to get down here at all since the place we wanted to stay was booked solid for Labor Day Weekend, which Bill and I both forgot all about. But we called around to some other places and found one that had room for us.

So here we are now, on the Oregon Coast. It’s foggy and cold this morning, quite the contrast from the sun and 90 degree weather we had in Montana. The highs here have been in the low to mid 60s….bbbbrrrrrrr…chilly. I had to get out my jeans and sweatshirts.

Well, that’s about it for right now. We don’t know what our plans for the next few months are as far as were we are planning to stay. We’ll be figuring that out this next week.
