This video is my first update for our 2022/23 RV Snowbird trip. We are only about a week into it, but it has already been an adventure, mainly due to the weather.

The Black Ball Ferry crossing from Victoria to Port Angeles went smoothly with sunny weather and low winds. We arrived in PA at about 6 pm, so we just headed to the local Walmart to overnight in the parking lot and stock up on supplies.

Since then, we have made four other stops, including a pair of Harvest Hosts member museums called Veterans Memorial (Chehalis, WA) and Evergreen Aviation & Space (McMinnville, OR), plus an I5 highway rest area. We’ve endured much rain and wind as some large weather systems moved through the Pacific Northwest.

I5 highway through the Siskiyou Pass down to California looked dicey due to a winter storm warning, so we headed out to the Oregon coast. We are at the Salmon Harbor marina near Winchester Bay, enjoying some sunny skies. Gonna stay a while and decide to continue down the coast or retry the Siskiyou route. Mother nature will be our guide. 🙂
