ROAD FOOD FOR TWO MONTHS????
|Crater Lake is phenomenal! Blue, blue, blue water.|
NOTE: We made an effort not to eat at any fast food places or chains during our 63 days away from home. Mission accomplished!
We tent-camped, and rented condos, cottages and cabins or motel rooms with kitchenettes so we could prepare our own meals. When they were unavailable, we used microwaves at filling stations or went to picnic grounds with grills.
Shopping at Sat. Farmers Markets was fun, as was tasting and buying from roadside stands. We made an effort to buy local as much as possible, even free range beef and bison, along with locally roasted coffee and local brews.
|Dinner at Cannon Beach, Oregon|
But nothing beats a picnic in a scenic setting! We were, after all, celebrating our 40th anniversary.
