So on day 74 I talked shit about Portland and it's people. On day 75 Karma decided to teach me a lesson. Let's start from the beginning and watch the story unfold through the days events. Now keep in mind that these things aren't life changing and don't tell that an elaborate story. It's more of an example about how being a jerk can come back to haunt you.
We get up a little light from Aurora Acres RV park and prep to hit the road. The plan for the day is... oh crap. We didn't make one. Well we had to be out by noon. I started to pack up and notice the grey tank is leaking water. No time to investigate now. I had the GPS set for south and we put on a hundred miles or so. During the packing routine that morning I had found a place to park on www.freecampsites.net. There's an aviation museum that let's people park overnight for fee. Roo swung off the interstate in McMinnvile , WA to stop for Wal-Mart supplies. Shopping completed we strolled over to ROO and i unlocked the door. Then it hit me. "That's strange." as I contemplated to myself. "Not locked. Guess I'll check the bottom lock" As I fumbled through my key chain consisting of three keys, it hits me. "OH SHIT. I don't have a key for that lock". We spent the next hour in the parking lot with our shopping cart waiting for a locksmith. It's 87° outside and my beautiful wife was not amused. In my head i hear karma laughing her ass off. "You deserved that you jerk" she snickers at me. Yep, I sure did.
Arriving at the museum late cost us the chance to see it. It was on my list of things to do. Inside resides amazing pieces of aviation history. There is a A-10 warthog, the SR-71 blackbird, V2 rockets, and the spruce goose. THE FRICKING SPRUCE GOOSE IS HERE. Now it has to wait until tomorrow. Getting the RV set up takes me through the usual motions. Except this time the hydraulic jacks won't go down. Great. Just great. Guess I had to deal with that for opening my mouth.
Dear homeless people: I'd like to apologize for the inconsiderate things I said about you on the internet. I was a jerk that was in a bad mood who failed to control his emotions. To you I owe my deepest apology and wish to say out loud to the world; I'm sorry.
