Sunday October 16, 2022 Rome Oregon
I have cell service but having problems posting. This is the fourth one today and we’ll be out in the woods again so no cell service. Recent posts in the side bar is the way to read them in order.
Making our way to Rome
We had about 40 miles to travel to hit highway 95 so we could drive on down to Rome Oregon, about 20 miles.
Follow the GPS if you dare, we do
Old stone cabins
There were a couple stone cabins along the road that we stopped to check out. The workmanship on this one was real good as the rocks were put together well. Good enough that it’s still mostly standing after all these years.
Info at Rome
We got back on a better road and made good time to highway 95 and drove south about 20 miles to Rome where we pulled in to the gas place there.
I wanted to ask someone about the Pillars of Rome that was out the road right across the highway from the gas place. A guy pulled up in a golf cart which turned out to be the owner of the place, gas, café and RV parking.
Just the right guy to get some info of the area and he provided us with what we needed to find the spot and find a place to camp for the night. We’ll return to his gas station in the morning to fill up as there’s not a lot of places on this highway to fill up.

Tonight’s camp spot
Walk across the field
After settling in to our camp I took a little walk out in the field across from our camp to look around. You can see the two vans parked on other side of this grassy field if you look hard. I had a good walk.
We need to gas up first thing and start our journey south and then west to start our trek back towards home. We’ll go down highway 95 to White Horse road and then down to highway 140 west and meet highway 395 somewhere and then find our next camp spot.
We hope to make it to Last Chance Creek where we camped on the way in a couple weeks ago.
