TravelPod Member ReviewsSugarloaf Mt. Motel Bend
This would be a great motel if only it were managed better. The rooms were very nice for the price, but there was no coffee filter for the coffee maker, the internet didn't work, the satellite TV was spotty, and the receptionist was so-so. On the plus side, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, had a complementary breakfast and a nice pool. It was worth the money but it could be so much better.

It was still hazy in the morning, and after an uneventful breakfast, we were away bright and early.
The only thing to note is …
Today its a drive further north into Oregon to see the Painted Hills. These are very colourful gold and brown clay hills. Next we stop in to visit a friend of Gerry's in a town called Bend. They live in a nice 2 storey house on 5 acres. Both are in the 70's. We stay the night here and enjoy a superb dinner and dessert. Breakfast is just as good, and we bid our farewell and are on the road at around 11am.
The first stop heading north is ...

Camp Sherman is a sleepy little community located on the Metolius River. Downtown consists of a full service general store. Half the store is dedicated to people needs, the other to ...
... if I cannot find someone in Bend to do a vacation home exchange with. I put a bird feeder with seed out in the backyard, but I have not yet attracted any birds with it. I usually can hear an owl hooting, as I do right now.
I'll kayak from the River Park into town and back today. It's just slow-moving water that can be paddled up-and down-stream. Not sure what the plan is for tomorrow, but the afternoon will involve getting organized and packing up the car, ...
... region of France to visit our friends Cristelle, Samuel and their kids, Julie, Jan and Anna. After a few days with them we'll board a fast train from Avigno to Montpellier and there switch to the final train to Barcelona.
We'll have more entries as we go along - with plenty of pictures just in case we run out of things to write.
See you all in 3 weeks.
