Great summary and pics.

Yeah, we've been to 9 National Parks over the winter and apparently it's a little known fact, the virus can't spread in gift shops (every one was open) but goes like wild fire in visitor centers, so they had to be closed. I think it's related to lottery machines and liquor stores killing the virus.

Nice pictures. Lousy comments. I see crossing state lines (and county lines) wasn't an issue with you during the height of the pandemic.

But it is a one of a kind area to visit.

Thanks for sharing you trip report. I've been to those places, mostly on my Harley. We had a Citation 10.8 pickup camper years ago. Such freedom, can't be beat.
Try hanging out north and east of John Day sometime. It's such a low population over there, you might not see a single soul in an hour on some of the main roads.

Happy campin' KEN

lol, well, not that many toys.. It's for the bikes, kayaks, motorcycles and most importantly, extra fridge, water, propane, etc. We can dry camp for a couple of weeks pretty easily.

Here's the build:

Support Trailer Build


'16 F550 CC, 4x4 with Link Ultraride air suspension, '18 AF 1150. Just so we can play with our snowmobiles, dirt bikes and fishing boat. And new 20' tag along...kayaks, bikes, mc's and extra water and food!!

We noticed, reference John Day and the near by...and seriously want to go back down and just hang in the area. It was beautiful and as you say, so very quiet.

Thanks for the comments and reading the TR.. makes the effort worthwhile.

I used to write TR's on Pashnit motorcycle forum. I had close to 100 trips. I wrote while traveling many times. One trip was from Oregon to MN, to MI to NYC to KY and back on 66 and 50. 95% of the trip was on 2 lane highways. 3 weeks trip.
I even reread my TR a few times. The owner of the forum one day just shut it down without notice.
I'll try to do some TR's here while camping. KEN

Understand the thoughts. Just see things differently I guess.
