Boardman OR

We drove a few hours south Boardman, OR. It was raining all the way there but cleared up as we set up. Yay. DH fished the Columbia & I got to just relax and walk the trails and read my Nook. Here is our set up. Clean campground, great bathroom/showers, movies on Friday nite, fire pit at each site and lots of trees thru out.

I was surprised at the number of Huge HUGE motorhomes and travel trailer and 5th wheels groaning into their spots. Some gorgeous, some just obscene. LOL You know it falls into the latter when everyone stops what they are doing to watch them pull in. such was the case of our neighbor who studied his pull thru spot for a good 20 minutes before executing his "attack" into his site. I know because I had to listen to his rigs engine and smell its exhaust as it was next to my open window as I was resting inside enjoying the breeze with the window open...until he decided he was ready to make his move.
Lots of geese with their young, DH got some nice bass, I got some needed rest. Heres a few pics of our set up at this park.

Looks like a great space and sounds like a good time with the DH.
I'm curious, I see the "el beso" on the side, but what are the graphics on the "peak" front of your aframe?

Hi Deb,

Figured since A-Frames draw attention, might as well give the passerby something to look at. DH thought to surprise me and put the graphics on for me but the monkeys were planned to be swinging from the front peak and the birds in the back above the long window....so a little change in vision....we'll just have the monkeys swinging around the trailer sides instead (they wont work on the other roof side)....so this way El Beso will always be "monkeying around" on her travels. LOL

Heres a couple pictures of the front roof that show the graphic a little better

Ah, OK I see it now. Thanks for the pics!

Our A126 doesn't have the front bubble windows and (aside from the fan and vent lid) is plain. I have often thought a nice graphic design would look good on the large "blank slate" surface. When I saw yours had a design, it got me curious so I had to ask.
