We left Weed, CA, about 9:30am. It was tough getting everything buttoned up because of the occasional snow flake. Yes, it was 34 degrees. But we wanted to get over the summit ASAP. We ran into some rain, but the road was clear. The snow level was low, thought.
We did make one stop in Yreka, the last town in CA. There’s a lot of problems in CA, but the price of booze isn’t one of them. Both OR & WA have state controlled liquor stores with an average markup of 115%. So we stopped at the Liquor Barn in Yreka for some last minute purchases. It was easy off the I-5 and easy back on.
It was not so with a visit to Harry & David’s Country Store in Medford, OR. I remembered it was out on Hwy. 99 away from the city. But when we followed the signs to the new store, it was in a strip mall. I made a bad decision to enter the parking lot, because it was pretty empty. Bad decision. We got stuck in a tight spot near a planter and we had to unhook the car (major pain) to get pass the spot. And then the store was a disappointment. Oh well, another live and learn experience.
By now you’re probably wondering what the 10-10-10 means. We stayed at our first Trailer Life campground with a perfect score, the Seven Feathers RV Resort in Canyonville, OR. And it deserved the ratings.
It has 191 sites, most of them pull thru with grass and nice landscaping in between. The amities include an indoor pool, fitness center, party room, horseshoes, fire pits with free wood, playground, a large dog run, and a nice creek running through the property.
The RV park is part of the Seven Feathers Casino complex which includes a hotel, restaurants, and a major service station. It’s all very nice. We’re very glad we stayed there and we plan on returning to visit some of the wineries in the area. It was cold and rainy while we were there, but we still loved it.

Tomorrow we’re off to the Portland area.
