Truck Camping

Maiden Voyage

Posted on

After months of looking I found a Four Wheel Camper to call my own.  I made the long trip to pick it up in California the weekend before, but I was really itching to get it out for a maiden voyage.

Since fishing season was closed in the high Cascades and the weather forecast didn’t look good for hanging out at a lake anyhow I decided on a weekend tour of the Ochocos.  So out to Prineville and up Mill Creek it was.

I bounced around the edges of the Mill Creek Wilderness, enjoying the western larch and the deserted roads.

I settled in to a camp with a view.

I think I’m going to like this Four Wheel Camper thing.
