April of 2002, the beginning of our third full year on the road, finds us still at Salt Creek Park as campground hosts. We had originally planned to stay here from May 1 through the end of June, but with Jordi's accident, we arrived two months early. While our stay here began very cold and wet, weather was quite nice for the last two months of our stay. The people were great, our grandkids close by, and our daughter-in-law was getting better.
We stayed for four months at Salt Creek Park, becoming good friends with Ranger Bruce Giddens and his assistant Kim. But after four months it was time to move on and travel down the west coast of Washington to Ft. Stevens State Park in Oregon.
We arrived at Ft. Stevens State park, near Astoria, Or. on June 30. This was to be our home for the months of July and August.
The staff provided the volunteers with at least one social event each week and our two months here went by very quickly. By September we were back on the road, traveling east on I-84 through Oregon, Utah and to Cheyenne Wyoming, where we raised our children.
We visited friends in Cheyenne, then went back to Kansas to visit family for a week or so. We arrived back at our friends in north Texas on September 14. We were then off to contribute to the financial well-being of our doctor and our dentist. We spent a month with our friends the Davis'. We then headed south to Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge for three months.
We stayed at the refuge through the end of January, when we wished our new friends farewell and headed off to our new experience at the historic site where Texas became an independent nation, Washington on the Brazos State Park.
We stayed at the historic site in Texas for the months of February and March, returning afterward to our friends home, and base for one more contribution to both the dentist and the doctor for their summer vacations. We spent our third anniversary of becoming fulltime RVers with the Davis's.
