Recently returned from a three week trip to eastern Oregon for the eclipse, on to Olympia Washington, flew to Sitka Alaska, then drove home to California. 2599.9 miles on the Casita.

Had 3 Casitas in Bishop, CA on Aug 17, one pulling out of the gas station we were pulling into, and two just north of town. One north of Kimberley, OR the day after the eclipse, and one in Washington, either along Hwy 12 or Hwy 5 south of Olympia. I forget.

I put 2,500 miles on Casita, could have been one you saw. I did see a 17' being used as a temp home in John Day. I had a great time camping in the National Forest.

The trailer worked worked perfect and really made the trip. The locals in John Day would not fill our water jug, but the city did.

I just left John Day (Clyde Holliday State Park) on Thursday.  The smoke was getting pretty thick.  Now at the Narrows south of Burns & the smoke is much better.

One you might've spotted that day would've been our "StayPuft" loaded with 4 bikes headed to Mammoth. We put over 5000 miles on it during that month out & back from the PetroMetro missing Harvey in the course of things.
Had just put on OMW's 3" lift, shocks (& 15 x 235 on/offroad tires), a tongue extension, reciever hitch and their propane box. All performed really well to get SP off the paved roads and up on Mesas or back into National forests. Next upgrades will be briefcase and roof top solar w/a 2nd AGM battery for extended boondocking.
