Last Overnight in Mehama

Because of the time it took to get the laundry done, we didn't leave Klamath Falls until after Noon. Including a fuel and lunch stop at Chemult and a couple other short rest stops along the way, we took around six hours to get to Mehama. We'll be here either two or three nights, preferably only two. We pick up the rental truck tomorrow at Noon in Salem and have the rest of tomorrow and whatever it takes on Thursday to pack it. If all does as planned, we'll pull out of Mehama (Lisa pulling the trailer behind her Big Orange Van and me pulling a small utility trailer behind the rental truck) sometime on late Thursday afternoon, with the plan being to get to Fernley late Friday.

This will be my final overnight trip to Mehama after many years of visiting and living part-time here. There are both good and bad memories here. We may be back again for short visits (or at least to retrieve anything that won't fit in the vehicles on this trip), but those stays will either be single-day or involve staying in a hotel in Salem. While Lisa has wanted to move for a while, having to pull up roots roughly a year earlier than she expected to have to do so is very painful for her.
