Florence, Oregon Wine and Chowder Trail

February 18-20, 2022 This was our first time experiencing the Florence Wine and Chowder Trail. Many of the people we met and chatted with had been many times and I can see why!

We thought it would be fun to make a road trip out of it and see some sights while in Montana, so we took the RV. We stayed at the KOA near campus. … Continue reading The Importance of Carrying a First Aid Kit
