Our Trip from Yacolt to San Diego (1,100 Miles. 5 Days. 3 Kids)

On Saturday, Aug. 27 we packed up our RV, left Yacolt, WA  and decided to see how far south we could make it on Day #1 of our big trip.

We ended up driving 155 miles (about 3 hours) and stopped at Deerwood RV Park in Eugene, OR.

When I told Emma, my co-pilot in the RV, we were in Eugene she asked, “We’re going to Flynn Ryder’s place!?” (Flynn Ryder aka Eugene Fitzherbert from Tangled).

We stayed in Eugene just one night. I went and grabbed dinner at a little hole in the wall place that night and we enjoyed our first night on the road!

The next day we left Eugene and drove about 220 miles (about 3 hour) south  when we had a tire blow out on the highway!
