Dry Camping Casino Lincoln City Oregan Coast

Roger and Susie's Travels (April 11th) Left Bend Oregan at 10:30 arrived Lincoln city Oregan at 2:00 pm (dry camping at another casino to night) from Bend the roads were good very little climbing to get over the Summit (elv 6000ft plus) the decent on the other side going to the coast was long and steep and narrow road ( I would not want to come back that way) the camp site at Bend was nice ($35.00 per night) (picked up fuel in town $3.10 per US gal) you have to go into these towns for fuel because you will pay around 20 to 25 cents more by fueling on the outskirts of town. (today,s pic,s some of the camp site at Bend and some the casino dry camping Lincoln City)

On the road again

Roger and Susie's Travels (April 10Th) Left Susanville California 8:00am Arrived Bend Oregon around 3:00pm traveled through on hwy 395 to Vally Falls Oregon took hwy 31 to La Pine hwy 97 to Bend Oregon. the hwy was 2 lane very quiet and very good roads and fairly flat little hills. (My only concern was if a break down not much room to pull over.) (but we are not supposed to break down ????) any way very easy on fuel with no hills scenery mostly ranching ponderous pines very rural very little traffic almost desert like.
