We stopped in John Day, Oregon, on our short drive today and hit Ace Hardware for yellow paint (our stairs are peeling badly) plus I got a new frypan. Also RadioShack for some bits (Art is still trying to restore his video back-up camera), Java Junction for coffee, and the co-op, which advertised grassfed beef. These campers are hungry.
John Day, OR
Helpful Dawn at the co-op told me they don't actually sell it but to go on up the road a half mile to Chester's Thriftway, which carries all-grassfed beef grown in Oregon. And there it was.
We took the opp to fill our larder with good things like mushrooms, celery, tomatoes, nuts, and yogurt, which we'll take into the woods tomorrow.
Dawn at the co-op asked where we were heading and I happened to have my maps with me. "Oh, you can't go THAT way," she said. "You'll miss this gorgeous route with lots of campsites." So she showed me (wish I'd made a picture). Another messenger?
