Then it was a hunt for a grocery store. I found a discount market with one RV parking spot left, but I couldn't find one vegetarian item including soup, or just plain vegetable soup, that didn't have meat. Even the baked beans had meat. That was disappointing. But I got food for Cooper and my mom. I can get by until the next stop in a few days. Then we found a place to dump the gray and black water. And it was free! What a sweet find! It was at an Oregon state park where we're staying the night. It's our first park stay (with fee) but it's not crowded and the views are beautiful. We don't have an ocean view (those go fast) and we don't have any services. We're paying for a tent camping spot to save money.
California parks were all completely booked and always crammed bumper to bumper. And they would not allow drop in campers. Everything had to be done online and way in advance. That doesn't work for the winging kind of traveling we're doing. The park attendant today said Oregon is having issues with people "boondocking" like we are because some are dumping their black water (sewer) on the ground, so Oregon is trying to shut down all free overnight parking anywhere. More disappointment and this time it's with the human race. Sigh.
days, we may stay put. We'll see how we feel in the morning.
