First Impressions Confirmed
Yesterday, I offered some preliminary thoughts on our current location – an RV park(ish) just north of Ashland, Oregon. Base upon some suspicious initial observations, I suspected that our surroundings might be a bit interesting.
In an effort to validate my thinking, first thing this morning I conducted a bit of reconnaissance within the immediate area. So with camera in hand, I ventured into the unknown, determined to learn more about my surroundings. Fairly quickly, my hunch was confirmed … this place is hippie-central.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
I’m not entirely sure how to best articulate things around here, so I’ll instead provide some imagery. As the cliché says – a picture is worth a thousand words. And with that, allow me to offer you a few thousand words.

Starting with the sacred grounds beyond this sign below, I respectfully and responsibly proceeded forward. Finding only a teepee, the community vegetable garden, and (wait for it …) a spiral rock garden, I was pretty disappointed.
On the positive, I did make friends with a cat.
My surveying efforts nearly complete, I began making my way back to the Airstream. Along the way, I stumbled into this gem below:
While comfortably eating breakfast, I found myself reflecting upon my observations. Is this place really full of cuckoos I wondered? Having been able to wander the grounds with the aid of daylight, I confirmed my previous thinking … yes, definitely yes..
Generally, I’m not one to say “I told you so”, but … I told you so.
