It is amazing how beautifully things unfold if we only get out of the way:)

It would be an understatement to say preparing to go on the road full-time has not had its challenges ... For a bit if it was not one thing it was another from my macbook dying and me having to ship it to Apple -to our new South Dakota license plates not making it on time before we were leaving -to having issues with the location we were planning on storing Shak3 while getting her ready for the road~~~ but in the end we went with the flow and every thing resolved itself! Apple is shipping my repaired MacBook to Zumwalt and will be waiting for me- we got an extension on our temporary tags and we ended up finding a camping spot right outside of Ashland to park Shak while we got her all ready for our big adventures. It was the greatest spot on Neil Creek with lots of old Oaks and birds to keep us company. The sound of the bubbling creek was worth the price of admission. 

Saying good by to our feathered friends that Bob has been feeding was not so easy. A few of our regulars were trying to figure out where the water went:

Our destination for our first stop on the way to Zumwalt was La Pine. We headed out of town on Hwy 62 towards Crater Lake. We happened to pull into MacGregor Park and who do we see fishing the Rogue but our dear friend Otis    . It was such a great way to leave the Rogue Valley- seeing one of our favorite people doing what he loves to outside fishing:)

We had a beautiful day to drive. It took around 4 hours to get to our campground in La Pine. I came out of the office to check in and Bob told me to get my camera- there was a flock of Red Crossbills bathing and drinking in the fountain right there at the entrance!! 

We ended the afternoon with a lovely walk in La Pine State Park :)

What a wonderful way to slip into to our new life. 

Going with the flow,
