I am so far behind on posting that I probably will just do a summary for September and then try to keep up again. The problem seems to be that even though I have access to free wi-fi, once I have breakfast and find a day camp I start reading or doing projects on Dod. By the time I think about the internet it is usually late and I say manana.
I have been utilizing indian casinos while on or near the Oregon Coast. They are all great with free slots if you join the players' clubs. I actually am still ahead of the casinos after 20 days at four different casinos, it seems they are paying me to stay. Heading south to a casino in Coos Bay tomorrow.
There are so many great day trips available up and down the coast that it is hard to decide where to go. My favorite so far is DePoe Bay and I will post about it with photos soon (or later).
Dod is still going strong with "0" problems after 3,000 miles of travel. I have decided that I will have to beef up the power system though while at my brother's house in Bakersfield. I am thinking a minimum of two house batteries and 100 watts of solar. My normal schedule is to read for about 1 hour after the sun sets and wake up with the dawn. Right now that gives me 8-9 hours of sleep. When the time changes and Winter shows up, it will be dark 14-15 hours daily and I need to find something to do for the 6-7 extra hours of darkness.
My brother asked me if I ever get lonely. I had to think about it but the answer is definitely NO. I do however get bored but not too often. It usually only happens when I run out of books. I counted yesterday and I have read 24 books since August 20th. I am out right now so I will hit a few thrift stores on my way down the coast today.
Bye for now!
