Friday May 26, 2017 Oregon
I left Troy around 8:30 in the morning on Thursday. I traveled the same road we did the mushrooming on, highway 62 through the forest which is the quickest way out of Troy if the snow has melted enough which it has, barely.
On the way down I ran into this road working crew. It was interesting as they had a machine that dug up the old asphalt and mixed it with new oil and put the new asphalt back on the road. It was like a small train with about six rigs hooked together to do the job.
Back roads south
My intention was to travel south taking some back roads.
I headed towards John Day and camped by a small stream on Thursday night just north east of John Day.
The next day I was back on the road at about 8:30. I traveled through John Day and continued on to Burns. I went south on highway 78 from there down this way.
While driving by these guys I noticed they didn’t move much cause they weren’t real. Too bad every thing needs to be fake in this day and age.
Friday night’s camp spot
I was looking for a camp for Friday night before I popped out at Lakeview Oregon. I saw this little lake so pulled in around six PM and made camp here.
Tomorrow I will make it down to highway 140 headed to Lakeview. I have a spot I want to check out just before getting to Lakeview that might be a good place to camp for the night. We’ll see about that when I get to it to check it out tomorrow.

I get a kick out of the fake horses, cattle and ranchers we’ve seen in the southwest this past winter. They look so real! Looks like a nice overnight spot by the lake. Nice to see you back online.
