We left Mom's house around 7:30 or 8:00 this morning, stopped in Ontario, OR for diesel, and arrived in La Grande around 10:00 or 10:30 AM. Although it had rained a little bit in Melba before we left, we had dry weather all the way into La Grande.

Our first stop was Albertsons to pick up three gallons of water so that we could dewinterize the camper. We then headed over to the camper, turned the batteries and the propane back on so that we could start the refrigerator cooling.

We unloaded all the stuff from the camper that we had stored in it during the winter (the inflatable boat, all the HughesNet stuff that we no longer use, but can't get rid of, and other assorted items) and loaded it back up with all the boxes we'd brought with us. Then we took all the stuff that had been in the camper over the winter to the small storage room we'd rented, along with the truck's tailgate and the Fold-A-Cover.

At this point, we stopped for lunch. After lunch, we loaded the camper onto the truck, returned the key to the gate, and stopped at Wal Mart to pick up a few items we needed for tonight and tomorrow morning...we'll pick up the rest of the items we need tomorrow morning after we're more rested. Fortunately, although it was cold, we didn't get any of the rain/snow that had been predicted. In fact, there were even periods where the sun actually shown through the clouds!

We stopped to fill up an empty propane tank, checked into La Grande Rendezvous RV Resort, and proceeded to put away all the stuff that was piled all over the place. Afterward, I fed Maxx and us.

Now we're ready for a nap (after Earl watches the NCAA National Championship game)!
