Oregon Weekend: Part One

For our first big camper trip we opted to drive 450 miles to Crater Lake, go big or go home right? We set out and drove the whole way there in one day which we learned was probably a little farther than we’d like to do in one day. We stopped at a bunch ofContinue reading “Oregon Weekend: Part One”
