Emerson, near Monmouth, Oregon, not far from Salem in the Wilmette Valley. They are on the Harvest Home program, and we were offered a parking place with spectacular views of their 25 acres of grapes and beautiful mature oak forest. We were also treated to a tasting like I remember from so many years ago, attentive and informative with no pressure to buy.
The Longsword Winery in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon, was the first winery that hosted us for a night under the Harvest Hosts program. For a $20 membership you receive access to a growing number of wineries and farms who will allow you to park your RV overnight without a fee.
The Wal*Mart parking spot is in the top ten at least. We heard lots of bird calls and not much else. There was little traffic in the parking lot, and we were not disturbed either of the two nights we boonocked there. We shopped at two businesses in town. We felt welcomed.
Android ap for uploading directly from the phone to WordPress, had a glitch and the media (photo) wouldn’t load. They put in a fix and it works as of today. For you semi-geeks out there, it means I can take a photo, or hopefully a video, add the text and upload directly to newbohemians.net without having to have the computer on the Internet. Anywhere there is a cell signal, we can post. So if you see a photo of a huge set of grizzly teeth about to chomp my head, you’ll know what happened in real time, almost.
