I didn't get away from Butte Lake until about 12:30 this afternoon. I had only planned to drive 150 miles, so no problem. It turned out that the two RV parks in town weren't acceptable, so I drove on until I got to Lakeview, Oregon, where I found a Shell station that had a separate side for trucks, so I seized the opportunity. I'm driving on Rte 395 which is beautiful, but not much in the way of facilities; I asked at the gas station if there was an RV park nearby, and lo and behold it was about 1/4 mile up the road. I'm pulled in at a crazy angle and I don't even want to think about getting out tomorrow without scraping something. Also, I doubt if I'm level, but hey, for one night I will just hold my breath and walk softly.
Oh, I nearly forgot. This morning I hitched up nearly perfectly! I was totally surprised as I hadn't done it for the last 3-1/2 months, but knowing I had David on stanCdby lessened the pressure. I also figured out how to play CD's in the truck - I have a 6-CD changer - so I left Lassen listening to the Osborne Brothers and some great bluegrass!
