|Saturday, June 16 - There were a lot of
WWII Jeeps on display at the
Johnston Motor's lot. The Jeeps came from all over the area.
Jason brought a Jeep up from
Coos Bay. The Jeep was originally owned by his girl friend's
grandfather. I had a great hot dog served by the Lion's Club
crew. Cost $3 for the Hot Dog and a Diet Coke.

|Saturday, June 9 - Classic cars were on display today
Rhody Cruisers Classic Car Stand-Around. Unfortunately there
were only a few cars - it had been raining for the last two days.
I did admire the
1957 Chevy and the
1955 Packard. The event was held in the Elks Lodge's parking
lot. While there I visited the Elks
Thrift Store and bought 5 hardcover books for $1 each. After
reading them I will donate them to the RV Park's lending library.
|Saturday, June 2 - Today I took a drive on
South Jetty Road to visit the southern part of the Siuslaw River
near where it empties into the Pacific Ocean. The
South Jetty Crab Dock is a popular place to catch crabs. Click
here to view information about crabbing in Oregon. It is usually
very windy in this area and is an ideal place for flying a kite.
It was a nice sunny day with high temperatures in the mid-60s. The
area is often foggy but it was very clear all day.
Wikipedia: The Siuslaw River is a river, about 110 miles long, that flows to the Pacific Ocean coast of Oregon in the
United States. It drains an area of about 773 square miles in the Central Oregon Coast Range southwest of the Willamette
Valley and north of the watershed of the Umpqua River. It rises
in the mountains of southwestern Lane County, about 10 miles west of Cottage Grove. It flows generally west-northwest through
the mountains, past Swisshome, entering the Pacific at Florence.
The head of tide is 26 miles upstream. The valley of the
river has been one of the productive timber regions in Oregon.

|Sunday, May 20 - At the
Pines RV Park in Florence, Oregon on pad 50. Elevation 70 feet.
I have stayed at this nice park a number of times before. The park
uses my software,
to allow guests to view their web site and to make online reservations.
While here I will be updating their web site. I will be here for
seven weeks. I like the city - it is just off the Pacific Ocean
with the wide
Siuslaw River running through the
old town section. There is a convenient
Fred Meyer big box store less than a mile north of the RV Park.
