Dod needs a spice rack. We have checked Walmart, the Dollar Store and Salvation Army thrift store without finding anything close. Yesterday we stopped at the local J C Penney. Since Pendleton is just a small town, it gets a small Penney's with absolutely no home department.
I do not like to shop for myself. I was ready to go directly back to the car but DJ decided that I needed some extra clothes so we went to check out the sale rack. I needed a couple of golf/polo shirts, a pair of cargo shorts and tee shirts. The original retail prices/sale prices of what I selected were as follows: 3 polo shirts - $26.00 each/ on sale for $2.97 each; 1 polo shirt - $25.00/ on sale for $9.99; 1 tee shirt - $20.00/ on sale for $3.97; and, cargo shorts - $45.00/ on sale for $19.99. The really cool thing about all the purchases was that all of the items were styles and colors that I would have chosen even if they weren't on sale.
Total regular price - $168. My total was just $40. and change. As an added bonus, there is no sales tax in Oregon!
Dod is ready for the open road and some boondocking. We will leave Pendleton around noon today and head into the Umatilla wilderness area in search of the perfect spot to spend a few days. As of two days ago our plan was to stay 2 or 3 days on the first trip but last night we came to the realization that we don't have put any time limits on our trips. We can be just like the "Energizer" bunny and keep going and going and going!
