Driving from Bend, OR, to Grants Pass, OR over the mountain in October. It didn't occur to me that Bend, OR can get snow in October. Anyway, I turned off HW 97 to proceed over the mountain, and it had started snowing. This was my second trip in my first RV (Fleetwood Jamboree 24 foot), so I was pretty "green" and the snow freaked me out. Secondly, I thought it was quite ODD that a jillion cars were going west (same direction I was) and NOBODY was coming east. What I mean is.... the eastbound lane of the highway I was travelling on had completely virginal snow, NO TIRE MARKS! I thought this was very odd, indeed.
I found out the reason for the "virginal snow" on the eastbound lane: At the top of the moutain pass, there was a six car pileup, and an ambulance was part of the pileup. Nobody was going anywhere. It took an hour to clear up the accident.
(During the stopping time, I thought of firing up my generator and cooking dinner in the microwave but I figured I would p**s off the people who were crammed in cars...... Instead I just played solitaire on my computer for as long as the battery would let me..... Advantage of the RV.....)
During the stopping time, I had opened my side door to get out and check out what was going on.
Finally the accident got cleared, and I proceeded. I had to drive down the mountain in the dark while it was still snowing. I kept hearing a "slushy windy" noise, and I couldn't figure out what this was. But I kept going until I was low enough in elevation for it not to be snowing any more. Then, I stopped and discovered I forgot to SHUT my entry door to the living area. I had driven a good ways with my entry door open. I was hearing the sound of my tires driving in the snow.
I'm sure this isn't the scariest thing one could possibly experience in an RV, but it was scary to me! I'm surprised it didn't scare me away from RV'ing!
