Thanks to all of you for your comments.
We are still in Junction City, OR and may be here for a couple more days. In the meantime we are looking at the various state maps for a fairly RV friendly highway from Eugene, OR to Eureka, CA. It may be the 299 from south of Eugene to Reedsport. We have traveled that way in the past and it leads right by the Roosevelt Elk Preserve.
After a visit with my cousin in Eureka, we will head further south and probably take the “Lincoln Highway” to Denver. We had never heard of the Lincoln Highway but interesting information when ‘Googled’. It was the first transcontinental highway (started in some places as a dirt path) from New York to San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. It runs a bit further south than I-80 and in some places is designated I-70.

We are waiting for one more small part for the bedroom slide. We have had problems with it in the past and do not want any more. So a small roller (about the size of a stack of 5 quarters) is on it’s was from the east.
A viewing while at the local McDonald’s:
Today is another sunny day here in Oregon. Last night before supper we got up on a ladder at the front of the MH and I swear scrapped off a billion bugs from the windshield. Could use a bit more work, but once up on the ladder, making that trip up and down is a one time experience!
As we are headed to Denver, CO, the comments about snow and multi-car crashes have me concerned about the potential for bad weather. We won’t even begin to mention the threat of tornadoes in Oklahoma and Texas! Our friends in CO watch AccuWeather and we also have that app, so will pay close attention as we move to Nevada and Utah.
