Enjoying the Portland, OR area

I spent several days parked at the Milwaukie, OR Elks lodge. While there I found a beautiful beach, a fabulous hot spring, and went on a scenic motorcycle ride.

The Elks Lodge was conveniently located, but the huge trees to to west of me blocked the solar charging of the sun starting around 3:30 in the afternoon - not too good when relying on battery power!! But discovering that I was parked next door to a fellow WIN member and old friend, Joe Gonthier, and a few feet away from a bountiful black berry patch, my stay at the Milwaukie, OR Elks Lodge was very enjoyable.
