There are 5 campgrounds that are all run by the same concessionaire. Once a month we get together for a potluck at a different campground. It was a lot of fun chatting with the other hosts. The meal was really great with lots of good food. It was a very relaxing time. It was over at the Haystack Reservoir, which is quite a bit different then my campground up in the mountains. Haystack Reservoir is located about 18 miles the other side of Prineville from Ochoco Divide. I used my GPS to direct me there. The last 6 miles was on a washboard gravel road where everything got shook up. Next time I will go to Redmond and then up the 97 where it is a nice smooth road.
Here are a couple of pics of the potluck.
On my way home I went through Redmond and stopped at the egg farmer. His eggs are the best I have ever tasted. His chickens are cage free and hormone free. You just go into his garage where he has a refrigerator, deposit the money in a jar and take your eggs. He happened to come out when I was getting my eggs and we had a conversation on how he raised his chickens and how good the eggs really were. They are more expensive ($2.50/dozen) then Walmart, but don’t even compare.
A couple knocked on my door yesterday and asked if I could spare some water. There truck had heated up and they were lucky to reach the summit where Ochoco Divide campground is located. I helped them out with some water and gave them some for the road in case they heated up again.
Lots of rain
Today was a wet day. It was very overcast in the morning and then started raining in the afternoon. The pics were taken looking out from my rig. It was a good day for a movie. I watched an oldie called “Midnight Cowboy” starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight. It was a real classic. It is sure nice that I can get movies from Amazon Prime through my WiFi Hotspot.
After the movie I cranked up the ole stereo to some of my favorite rock (Doors, Grateful Dead,Rolling Stones, etc.). Only had two campers come in to get out of the rain and they were on the other side of the park. This should be a quiet weekend as there are thunderstorms predicted for later this afternoon. A good day to read a book and get caught up on the blogs I follow.
You’ll never guess in a million years who I just visited with a while ago. Truly a small world. The rain is welcome, on occasion, and gives a person some time to just kick back. Relax and enjoy!
Nice Potluck and looks like a nice day for it. Gives everyone a chance to meet and share war stories. Sorry for the rainy weekend but there is something peaceful about just relaxing on a rainy day. Be well and Safe Travels, Ann and Jerry
The Tastee Treat is great. There is also a BBQ place in a trailer on the left side of the road heading up to Mitchell on the way East of town that has pretty darn good BBQ, if u are into that.
On your advise I tried Tony’s BBQ in the trailer in Prineville. It was great!. Thanks for the tip.
