When we left Yellowstone, a few warranty problems with our RV needed fixing. Our inverter wasn’t working properly, our main tv broke and our sink separated from the counter.
We couldn’t dry camp with a broken inverter so we had to cancel our New Mexico balloon festival reservation. We’d hoped to meet the xscaper group at the festival so we would have a group of friends to camp with when we travel. I guess that’s why RVer’s call all trip planning “jello plans.”
We made several phone calls and no one would see us for 2 months. There was only one shop that would see our RV this month. This shop was in Bend, Oregon so we started out toward Oregon hoping the shop would do the job.
On the way to Bend, Oregon we stayed at the Crystal Crane Hot Springs RV Park in Burns, Oregon. This is an escapee discount park. It was $23.00 for a pull thru with 30amps. We had electric and water. They charged $3.00 for our dog. The hot springs is outside with a beautiful view.Kevin and I got there just before the crowds showed up. We relaxed in the natural hot spring pond with our noodle floaties looking at the view. Crystal Crane Hot Springs was out of our way but I read about it in Cheri & Chris’s favorite campsites of 2014 post. It looked like a place Kevin and I would enjoy camping at. It was worth the drive. Next, we drove to Thousand Trails Bend/Sunriver to get the RV looked at. The shop near our RV Park found the problem and ordered our parts. I’m so thankful they were able to find the problem so quickly.
The Thousand Trails in Bend/Sunriver, Oregon is a nice forest park. When we came back from the RV shop, we saw two mule deer walking around in our campsite. The campground has electric/water but no sewer connections. Our satellite is working and our AT&T wifi reception on our personal hot spot is good. I like this park. Its a good place to wait for parts….. if it doesn’t snow.
