Dear Friends of Earnest Efforts - We left Olalla this morning headed for sunny Death Valley where our first art festival begins this coming weekend. However, before we can enjoy that warm sunshine, we're going to have to get ourselves out of South-Central Oregon. Last year when we headed on our southern journey we got caught in a snow freeze and spent the night in Blye, Oregon, in our van, with a 7 degree morning. When we drove through Blye this afternoon where it was warm and partly sunny we thought Winnemucca, Nevada would be our next stop. Nope. We made it about 45 more miles and are now enjoying a memory foam mattress in quaint Lakeview for the night because our alternator is working like a yoyo. Oh joy! You just never know, but can be sure that it all happens for a reason. Although the reason may never be known.
Myrtle's belly is full of wet dog food - her travel treat - and ready for a walk or nap. Thinking nap. Earnie has already fallen asleep after a long first day of driving. Please check back in with us to read and hopefully see more of our adventures. I do have to figure out how to resize pics after I download them on our netbook. Hope your days are filled with wonderful adventures and
Take care, be good & kind, and don't forget to laugh,
