Update: June 13,2015

Madras, Oregon  H82 L44

I have been a little slow to post lately for no particular reason.  I just don’t seem to find the time.  Now that Memorial Day has come the park is in full summer mode. School ended here on Thursday, so we will see full capacity weekends at the park until mid Sept.

Judy and I have enjoyed seeing campers we met last year. For many of the campers Pelton Park is their annual camping event. Often it is a family reunion of sorts, as their children and grand children join them at the park for a few days of relaxation and family time. They tell us they love the park setting and appreciate how clean and well maintained the park is.

Happy Campers – Joe &Judy and kids

We met Joe and Judy last year during their annual visit. Their children came up to join them, another son and his family will be joining them later today.

The temp hit 107’ on Monday but it has since dropped back down to more seasonable temps in the low eighties.  Last night the low temp was 46’. Just right for a good campfire.

Judy and I are planning on getting back into our weekly “day trip” routine next week. We have a few ideas in mind but nothing is ever final until we head out. Stay tuned.

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Next Blog: in a week or so.


  1. 107 - Wow. I expect that down here but the good thing for you guys is it doesn't last. We are above 100 every day now and I expect it to stay that way. 111 on Wednesday. Always fun to be planning those day trips.

    1. Sandie,

      I have been keeping an eye on the temps down there, looks like some hot days are on their way.

  2. That's hot! It's going to be a hot summer for us in the midwest. I was wondering if you were going to post again, glad you did. Have fun! At least you're not working the long hours that you had last year.
