I took care of a few things this AM b4 leaving for Oakridge.
My blood test strips were sent Fed X to General delivery, Bend. Fed x doesn’t do general delivery. I told the customer service person to ship USPS and use the general delivery address. 2 days ago I called the Bend PO to learn if the package arrived. Clerk was great. He put down the phone and searched. He came back on and said not here. Earlier in the day I stopped @ same PO to stand in line. There were maybe 11 people ahead. I decided the wait to learn if there was not what I wanted to do. Then I called in the comfort of my home. Yesterday I called again and got another clerk. I asked for info. She said can’t di it over the phone. Come in and show ID and then they would look. My plan was to visit the PO this AM b4 heading out. Late yesterday I received a phone call from Fed X asking for a street address because, the don’t do general delivery. The supplier dropped the soap. I drove out to Fed X office which was just a little further than the PO and did not stand in line. I spoke w/ another customer service person and she typed in info into my account. Some of the hiccups of living on the road.
I drove the Cascade Lakes highway instead of rt 97. Lots of snow on the mountains. Telemark turns on Bachelor slope. I remember skiing spring Cascade snow fondly. Last time was like spring of ’89.
I’m here to help @ a trail work project Sat and Sun. Going up to Brewers Union for a pint then head for a camp spot.
I bought Copper River salmon @ Safeway for $6.00/ pound. Cheap.
The LEV seat dropper works well.
