BLUE CREEK DAIRY FARM

Military Transfer

Stacy advanced to Chief Boatswain’s Mate, and so time to transfer to a new unit!

On to Astoria, Oregon where he will be stationed aboard USCGC ALERT (http://www.uscg.mil/pacarea/cgcalert/).
We love to transfer because we love to travel together! Also, this move brings us to within a reasonable driving distance to our farm (8 hrs).
Along the way West we had some great adventures:
Virginia insisted we stop by Iowa 80, the largest truck stop in the world!

Also stopped to see the best preserved Oregon Trail Ruts, near Guernsey, Wyoming.

We are standing on the trail, the wagons ground through the sandstone:

Lots and lots of open road out West:

We eventually made it to Spokane, dropped most of our stuff in storage, then took only what we needed to our new small apartment in Astoria. We then came back to Spokane and headed north to our farm for a well deserved three weeks of farm time!
