My blogging has been terrible because we are blowing through our data plans whenever we are away from wifi (and, of course, periodic hiatuses where I seem to have only hateful things to say).
Happily, I just found out there is wifi next week at the house we are renting in Portland for five days so maybe I’ll be able to figure out why I can’t get the map pins to show up and see how to set up photo galleries in this theme or maybe just change to another theme entirely if it’s all a big pain.
Trying to conserve data means that we made an effort to dig through boxes and find my old GPS (thanks, Mom!) so we have that handy in the car AND it got us more quickly onto our plan of using real life maps. I really like to know where I am and our initial plan was for our 13 year old to be our navigator for much of the trip.
We are wrapping up our big stop here on Sauvie Island, just outside of Portland. We’ve been here for five nights and will add an extra night tonight before heading to Mount Hood to stay with friends for the weekend and then back to Portland for five days in the rental house. After that? We have no idea. I only managed to plan the first four weeks in the chaos of trying to sell the house right before we left San Diego.
For now, some quick pictures:
