Doing things in Bend

This is an interesting town. It’s sprawley, and navigation is confusing. They seem to love roundabouts which are everywhere, but traffic isn’t bad at all. Once a huge lumber town, it’s now tourism, retirement, commercial center for the region, and packed with breweries and brewpubs. I went to the The Old Mill District hoping for some historical sights and instead it’s a monstrous shopping mall.

The idea was to do some shopping here to avoid sales tax. I got step bars installed on my truck, bought a Nintendo Switch and 2 video games, and a new vacuum cleaner for my rv. Plus some miscellaneous stuff. Tomorrow I’ll finish up buying stuff, and take out of here on Friday, heading into Malheur NWR.
